It is easy to clean microfiber upholstered sofa at home, only if you know how to do it properly. Here is the complete procedure.
Use a Vacuum: You have to begin the cleaning process with a vacuum. The dust particles and other contaminants are usually amassed on the surface of the microfiber, as it does not allow them to go deep within. So, just use a vacuum regularly and all allergens along with the dust will be gone.
Use a Brush: After the vacuum, use a brush to wipe your microfiber sofa in order to scrub stains and remove crusty spills. In this step, also remove the pillows and cushions from the sofa so that no part is left unclean.
Read the Tag: The manufacturer’s tag is where you will find all the necessary instructions on which cleaning solution to use. It will use letters to indicate solution is best for your sofa. W stands for water-based cleaning solution, S stands for water-free solvent, S/W means you can use either and X indicates that you should not use a solution at all.
Pick a Cleaning Solvent: In according to the instructions on the tag, you have to use either water-based solutions or water-free solutions. For water-based solvents, you can consider gentle soap, mild dish detergent, or upholstery shampoo. And for water-free cleaning agents, you can consider gin, vodka, dry cleaning solution, lighter fluids, or baby wipes.
Remove Stains: If you find any stains on your sofa then just apply the cleaning solution on them and use a paper towel to soak them.
Brush Again: The last step is to use the brush again to give a softer feel to your microfiber upholstered sofa. The cleaning process might make your sofa feel harder but this last step will soften it again.
Remember that you should never use bleach or acetone comprising solutions. And if you do not feel sure of how to do it then it is better to take professional help and hire cleaners.
