Hi, homeowners! A little care and attention will go a long way to keeping your sofa in tip‐top condition, and many years of comfort and good looks ‐which is hopefully why you bought it in the first place. Follow our pointers and give your sofa some love.
Accidents happen, and nothing beats specialist cleaning to get the best results. However, for small spills, resist the urge to rub at the stain (this only works to drive it further into the cushion padding), instead wipe your fabric sofa gently with a damp (not wet) cloth and immediately wipe with a soft, dry cloth. Vacuum or brush the fabric every week to remove dirt which can contribute to wear and tear and color fading. Keep your sofa away from heat and light sources to minimize fading.
CARING FOR LEATHER
Do your greatest to avoid spillages entirely but, if the worst happens, wipe straight away with a damp (not wet) cloth and follow immediately afterward with a soft, dry cloth. Don't use solvent‐based cleaners and take great care to keep sharp objects away from the sofa as any cuts or scrapes to leather could prove impossible to fix. Keep "the leather sofa" away from sources of bright light and heat for prolonged periods, or fading could result. Vacuum gently any cracks and crevices.
PLUMP & ROTATE
This is your mantra for sofa magnificence. Remove all the cushions and, holding from the "opposite sides", give them a good squeeze to reshape them. If the pillows are double‐sided (i.e., the same material on each side) rotate them to ensure each party is getting the same amount of wear. Aim to complete this routine monthly for foam‐filled cushions and weekly for cushions filled with feathers.
