How to clean an armchair

Keeping your armchair clean is essential not only for hygiene but also for maintaining its appearance and longevity. Dust, stains, and spills can cause damage to the fabric or leather if not addressed promptly. In this blog, we will guide you on how to clean an armchair effectively.

Step 1- Vacuum the Armchair

Before you begin cleaning, it is essential to remove any loose dirt, dust, or debris from the armchair's surface. Use a brush attachment on your  vacuum to remove the dirt from the surface of the armchair.

Step 2- Check the Cleaning Label

Every armchair comes with a cleaning label that contains essential information about the best way to clean it. Look for the cleaning label and read the instructions carefully. If there is no cleaning label or if it's unclear, contact the manufacturer or seek professional help.

Step 3-Spot Test the Cleaning Solution

Before you apply any cleaning solution to the armchair, it is important to spot test it in a hidden area. This will help you ensure that the cleaning solution doesn't damage the armchair's material. Apply a small amount of cleaning solution to a hidden area, wait for a few minutes, and check for any discoloration or damage.

Step 4-Choose the Right Cleaning Solution

Once you have spot tested the cleaning solution, choose the right solution for your armchair. There are different types of cleaning solutions available in the market, including fabric cleaners, leather cleaners, and multi-purpose cleaners. Ensure that you choose the right solution for your armchair's material.

Step 5-Apply the Cleaning Solution

Apply the cleaning solution to the armchair's surface using a clean cloth or a sponge. Work the solution into the armchair's fabric or leather using circular motions. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions and avoid saturating the material.

Step 6- Rinse and Dry the Armchair

Once you have applied the cleaning solution, rinse the armchair thoroughly using a clean cloth or sponge. Make sure to remove all the cleaning solution residue. Then, dry the armchair with a clean towel or let it air dry. Avoid using a hairdryer or heat source to dry the armchair.

Step 7-Protect the Armchair

After cleaning and drying the armchair, it's important to protect it from future stains and spills. You can use a fabric or leather protector to prevent future stains and extend the armchair's life.

In conclusion, cleaning an armchair is not a difficult task if you follow these steps carefully. Regular cleaning and maintenance will help your armchair last longer and maintain its appearance. Remember to spot test any cleaning solution and read the cleaning label carefully before applying it to your armchair.
