You bought it because you liked it. It works well in your rooms, and you have owned it for a while. By now, if you are like most of us, you take your furniture for granted. You are so used to its being in your home or office that you don’t notice the spots and stains that have accumulated on your upholstery or the cleaning that it needs.
But, if you want to have your furniture last, you need to think seriously about having a professional upholstery cleaner like McArdles Cleaning Services clean it and get it back in tip top condition. Stains happen, but they don’t have to be permanent.
A professional upholstery cleaner will:
- Steam clean your upholstery
- Clean it with warm water
- Use dry foam on it to clean it
- Use solvents as necessary to remove tough stains.
Whether we like it or not, we are judged and evaluated by our furniture. Fine furniture is a type of art. Antique furniture is a part of our family history that has been passed down to us. The way we maintain our furniture can be a reflection of how we treat others.
What our choice of furniture says about our personality
According to April Labarron on SundayBell, our choice of furniture says a lot about our personality.
- Traditional style furniture tells people we want to impress them and that we are practical, formal, and indulge in nostalgia.
- Contemporary and Modern furniture says we are trendy, stylish, uncomplicated, and that we prefer simplicity.
- Casual style furniture invites our friends and family to be comfortable in our presence. It says we are laid back and relaxed.
- Eclectic furniture is a mixture of styles, fabrics, and textures, with antique furniture blending with modern. It says we are a bit unconventional and non-conformist, and that we value freedom and the ability to make choices.
In offices when furniture has not been properly cleaned, stained and spotted furniture can give clients the very subtle message that if the management doesn’t take good care of their furniture, they may not be taken care of either.
It is important to have upholstery cleaned a couple of times a year, and more often in homes where pets and children create stains on furniture. The professional upholstery cleaning crew at McArdles Cleaning Services will take excellent care of your furniture in your office and in your home. What your furniture will be saying about you after their work is done will be “Come in, relax, and enjoy my home and office.”
Sofas, chairs and armchairs are not only vulnerable to stains, dust and dirt, but grime can also become deeply embedded into the fibres too. Even if you can’t see it, the dust and debris is still there, so cleaning the upholstery is highly necessary for hygiene purposes. If the upholstery is removable, you won’t need much to clean them: just put them through the washing machine or pop them down to the dry cleaners. But if they’re not removable, you will need some suitable McArdles upholstery cleaning products, along with a good plan for removing dirt and stains. Usually, the most efficient solution is hiring an upholstery cleaning company in Orange & Bathurst NSW. Outlined below are the best at-home upholstery cleaning tips you should know about.
- Vacuum Your Upholstery First
If your upholstery has developed lots of stains and spots, you should always make sure to vacuum it first before doing anything else. Dirt and dust can further dirty the fabric if you do not remove it first. You may need to use different upholstery attachments to get in all cracks and crevices, and thoroughly remove the dirt. Make sure to remove as much pet hair as possible. If your vacuum cleaner does not have a special tool for removing pet hair, this is the right time to get one.
- DO NOT Use a Home-made Cleaning Solution
The best thing for your furniture is to use a professional cleaner. A home-made cleaning solution can be very inefficient and can even damage some types of upholstery. A common home-made cleaning solution is to use a natural dish detergent with warm water. Then using a soft bristled brush to rub some of the foam into the stain, which will cause the dirt and grime to leave the fabric. This can however push the stain into the fibres, making them more difficult to get out.
- Asses Your Furniture’s Cleaning Label
Different types of furniture have different cleaning labels. These labels must be respected in order to ensure that the fabric will not be damaged. Examine the furniture’s manufacturer’s care label, which gives instructions on the types of products that should be used for cleaning the fabric.

We offer a range of upholstery cleaning methods that address different fabrics, as well as professional tools and solutions so the upholstery can return to its best condition.
It is important to address spills immediately if you want to keep your upholstery clean. Use a paper towel or a piece of toilet paper to soak up as much of the liquid as possible – press and dab to soak up the spill, rather than rubbing or scrubbing, as this will assist in removing it quickly and efficiently.
