The lifespan of our furniture is directly related to how we take care of them; just like our health.
To take care of both, it is important that we keep the surfaces around us clean, and sanitised.
When it comes to your sofa, it is one of the most common spaces where every single member of your family has access to (even your furry friends, if you happen to allow them). This not only results in an accumulation of a variety of allergens such as dust mites, micro bacteria, mildew, bugs, pollutants, and so on.
Sounds dangerous right?
It certainly is, since it poses major health risks for you and your family if these allergens are not gotten rid of, within time. This is because the germs not only penetrate deep into the layers of the fabric of your sofa, and multiply.
What are the preventive measures you can take?
Before you go ahead with cleaning the sofa set yourself, you need to be aware of the fabric quality present on it. The following list will help you decide what kind of cleaning you need to go for:
- If it has a ‘W’ letter code mentioned somewhere, it means that the sofa can be cleaned with the help of a water-based agent.
- The sign ‘S’ indicates that it should strictly be dry cleaned.
- If it has ‘WS’ mentioned, you can go ahead with a water-based cleaner.
- The letter ‘X’ denotes vacuum cleaning.
- ‘O’ sign indicates that the fabric is organic and should hence be cleaned only with cold water.
Identifying the quality and the method of cleaning is not enough. One needs to be aware of the percentage of ingredients present in the sofa cleaners as well, to determine how to go about the process of cleaning. For instance, leather cleaners are different from water cleaners and can damage your sofa if not used properly.
We are sure that looking at this list must have put you to deep thought about how you will carry out the long and time-consuming process of sofa cleaning, the next time. Being cautious about the quality of your sofa is the primary parameter to consider what kind of cleaning is required.
