Hosting Parties during the Holidays

During the holiday season, I adore hosting parties at my home. I always enjoy spending time with close friends and family members in a relaxed atmosphere. Are you already busily planning upcoming events at your home? Consider making your house look amazing when visitors arrive by hiring a professional cleaning service. A cleaning service can complete tedious chores such as vacuuming your carpets, mopping your hardwood floors, cleaning your oven, and dusting your furniture. On this blog, I hope you will discover the benefits of hiring a cleaning service before your guests are expected to arrive. Your home can be a spotless party paradise.

5 Tips For Keeping Upholstered Furniture Well Maintained


Upholstered furniture can easily become damaged because it tends to be so delicate. In order to ensure that it lasts as long as possible all while appearing to be clean at all times, you will want to consider following these five tips:

  1. Protect the Furniture: Upholstered furniture needs to be protected from spills. If a spill ever does happen, you should also address it immediately by gently blotting the spot dry. If you wait too long to address the spill, it begins to sink into the fabric and thus become extremely difficult to remove. Since spills can happen while you are away or busy, you will want to be sure that you purchase upholstered furniture protectors from the same place you have purchased the furniture. The upholstered furniture needs to be protected with approved protectors from its manufacturer. 
  2. Turn the Cushions: Something that is really simple and easy to do is to turn the cushions of the furniture every once in a while. This is going to allow for even wear and tear and prevent indentations from forming. On top of turning the cushions, you should also move the cushions around from one spot to another since some areas of the furniture will  experience more use than others. 
  3. Vacuum Regularly: Upholstered furniture should be vacuumed regularly to prevent surface soil from becoming embedded into the fabric. This will prevent further stains that are more difficult to remove. 
  4. Keep Away from Sunlight: Any upholstered furniture that may be exposed to sunlight throughout the day needs to be covered up. Either purchase heavy drapes for the windows so that the sun stays off the upholstered furniture or move the furniture away from the areas of the home that get the most sun. Sunlight can cause the furniture to fade and fray. Of course, this isn't something that you need to worry about if the windows on your home are tinted.
  5. ​Hire Professional Upholstery Cleaning Services: Every once in a while, you should consider hiring a professional upholstery cleaning service to thoroughly clean the upholstered furniture in your home. With their help, the furniture can last even longer. Plus, they can address dirty areas of the furniture that you may not have seen or that may have been too difficult for you to take care of yourself. 

By following these five tips, you can be sure that your upholstered furniture lasts much longer and is always clean and comfortable for you and your guests to enjoy.
