Spring is around the corner and it is time to refresh the house before the warm season. After the long winter, your sofa needs a good clean up. Over time, soft furnishings like armchairs and couches accumulate a lot of dust and dirt. Check out these amazingly easy and fast ways to keep the couch its as-new fresh look.

Vacuum Thoroughly

Get the upholstery attachment of your hoover and carefully run it over the furniture. Take your time to lift cushions and vacuum underneath. Don’t miss small, hard to reach places like corners and folds. This is a very important step. If there are some small particles trapped in the creases of your sofa they will deteriorate the fabric over time, shortening the lifespan of the furniture. Some may object that this step is unnecessary for leather and faux leather couches but this isn’t true. Your leather furniture also needs a good vacuuming over time. Dust and dirt can make the upholstery age faster and contribute to the dull look of the material.

Quick fact: Upholstery attachment’s bristle helps lift stuck particles and brushes sofa’s fibres.
