How to Remove Stubborn Stains on Furniture
What is more annoying than having stubborn stains all over your furniture. Until we had our own cherished belongings to worry about, most of us probably didn’t understand our parents’ fixation with the rule of keeping food and drinks off the sofas and bedrooms. When it comes to creating the perfect domestic space, furniture stains and splotches are usually the last things on anyone’s mind, yet there’s nothing even appealing about discoloured blobs on upholstered furniture.
As many homeowners are well aware, spills and stains on upholstered furniture must be handled as soon as possible in order to prevent it from leaving a permanent spot. However, it is not always the best choice to clean stains that are time-sensitive as it is not guaranteed stain-free results. As a professional upholstery cleaning service provider in Singapore, we provide stubborn stain removal services to revive soiled upholstery, even if it appears that the stains have settled forever and that nothing can be done to remove them.
#1 Keep Calm and dab on (Wet Method)
Firstly, remove and soak up excess liquid with clean rags or a towel with gentle dabbing and blotting motions (avoid rough motions).
Next, vacuum the spot to remove excess muck and gunk to ensure further treatment can be done more effectively along with preventing the grease or muck from seeping deep into the fabric.
Then, begin applying a cleaning solution gently to the stained spot, again in a dabbing and blotting motion. Before that, make sure to check the type of fabric (refer to the cleaning code) before proceeding with the cleaning solution in order to avoid stubborn stains from forming.
Finally, use a clean cloth to dry out the area and later place the furniture near to a sunny or windy location for complete drying in order to prevent mold and bacteria from forming.
#2 Specialised cleaning chemicals
Some stubborn stains like pet urine or faeces may require specialised cleaning chemical solutions in order to remove the odour along with disinfecting the area.
Firstly, apply the right type of chemical solution (based on the cleaning code) to the deeply stained area and let it soak for a while to do its job.
Next, clean the area with a wet cloth, ensuring that the chemical solution is thoroughly removed, otherwise it may damage the colour of your furniture, cause odour problems and potentially leave another stubborn stain on your upholstery.
However, this method is recommended only when necessary, as frequent use of the chemicals can cause long term damage to your favourite upholstery.
But you can always choose chemical-free solutions that match the cleaning code of your upholster to effectively carry on with the stubborn stain removal technique and so as to minimize the potential damage.
