Couch Cleaning Melbourne

Vacuuming fabric or leather sofa may get rid of light soil, pet danger and debris. However, it cannot remove stains, spills or pet smells. That is why you should clean your couch every six months. No matter what kind of fabric or leather it is, as a couch cleaning Melbourne service provider, we are giving you the best way to clean your couch on residential premises.

It is the place where you and your loved ones eat, drink and watch television. You have to take special care of this place. Please follow this step-by-step process to clean and sanitise your couch effectively. Whether you are going to remove a stubborn stain like ketchup, nail polish, ink or other lighter stains; you have to check the care tag. Most of the products come with a care tag which indicates the safe method of cleaning.

Here are the most popular care tags:

W: Any water-based solutions can clean the item.

S: The item needs a solvent-based solution for cleaning.

W/S: Both water-based and solvent-based solutions are suitable for this item.

X: Neither water nor solvent is suitable for this item.

After checking this care tag, follow the guideline below for fabric, leather and microfiber couches.

Deep Clean the Fabric and Microfiber Couches

There are many deep cleaning methods, but hot water extraction and steam cleaning are two popular among them.

Step 1: Steam Cleaning

Buy a steam cleaner from the market and fill the reservoir with water. Set a temperature to emit vapour. Now go over the entire couch, sofa and carpet, try to penetrate the fabric so that it kills the embedded germs. If you do not have a steam cleaner, then start with step 2.

Step 2: Vacuuming

Vacuum the backside, armrest and headrest with a vacuum cleaner. You can use HEPA filters to capture even the microparticles. Remove the cushion cover to clean them. In the end, clean the vacuum and HEPA filter properly. Many people use upholstery brushes to make the process more effective.

Step 3: Spot Test

This step is essential because it ensures your cleaning appliances and liquids are suitable for the item. Upholstery cleaning service Melbourne providers advise their clients to have a spot test in a hidden area. We recommend it too. If you are satisfied with the result, you can apply it to the affected spots to avoid stains and discolouration.

Step 4: Cleaning Time

Food and pet stains can be cleaned with an enzyme-based formula. Many upholstery cleaner from Melborune recommend dishwasher liquid. Add a few drops of liquid with warm water. Now apply the liquid to the affected area with a microfiber cloth. You can use other solutions, such as vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice, car wax etc., for cleaning or repairing the damage.

If your cushion cover is removable, then unzip it and clean it with a water-based solution. Besides hot water extraction and steam cleaning, you can apply other DIY remedies such as baking soda, vinegar, lemon juice etc. Please consult with a sofa cleaning Melbourne expert before choosing the best option for your item, and do not forget the care tag.

Please steam clean the armrest and headrest carefully with a lower temperature for effective cleaning. Besides that, do not hold the nozzle too long in the same place; otherwise, it may lead to discolouration. We would advise you to call a professional for safe and thorough cleaning.

Step 4: Start Sanitization

You can use a water-based fabric sanitising spray and other liquids to prevent further damage. Although steam cleaning also covers sanitisation, still you can take extra protection by spraying/cleaning the area with a sanitiser.
