First, everyone needs to know a qualified cleaning professional to call on when necessary!

That’s why Fibrenew Upstate wants to be sure you know we are IICRC certified, which also means that Fibrenew Upstate is trained in the newest techniques and uses the latest products recommended for the cleaning of upholstery.
It’s important that you not wait until severe soiling has occurred before cleaning your upholstery. Otherwise, the likelihood of being able to restore your upholstery fabric to its original color and appearance is greatly decreased. The average person subjects their regularly used upholstery fabrics to daily soiling from food and beverage spills, body oils, lotions, pet hair, etc., making periodic professional upholstery cleaning key to extending the life of the fabric.
This is the time of year that many of us will decide to spruce up for the holidays which may include having our upholstery cleaned. And then there are those of us that would rather wait and organize a thorough cleaning after the holiday decorations are put away. Regardless, it is during the cold winter months, when we tend to spend more time indoors, that we also become more aware of our indoor environment needs. Upholstery cleaning is one of those tasks that can easily be taken care of during the winter months, meaning one less thing to put on your spring cleaning list!
In the meantime, following are a few Upholstery Fabric Cleaning Tidbits to keep in mind:
- Vacuum thoroughly and regularly to remove dust, dirt & grit that causes abrasion.
- Rotate & reverse all removable cushions periodically to assure even wear.
- Keep pets off as much as possible, as their body oils are difficult to remove.
- Note that newspaper & magazine inks may transfer to upholstery.
- Remove shoes when possible, as shoe polish gets on upholstery very easily.
- Immediate spot removal and spill clean-up is important.
- Blot up liquid spills with a colorfast, absorbent cloth or towel.
- Scrape up viscous materials, like ice cream, with a spoon.
Just remember, there’s no need to cry over spilled milk when there are IICRC trained professional upholstery cleaners, like Fibrenew Upstate, available to help you.
