Having a child or a pet means that you need to take care of possible damage in advance. The best moment is when you are buying your furniture. As always in life, everything depends on your budget. Most people would like to buy and have the most beautiful pieces of furniture and TV-sets of 50”, but the reality is somewhat different, so we have to juggle our bills and finances to make sure everything turns out for the best. To make ceretain that your funiture will not be ruined every time your dog jumps on it or your child spills his or her milk, go for easily more cleaned materials. Cotton and blends of cotton are a great choice when it comes to price, comfort and durability. This material is perfect for the armchairs and sofas upholstery, as well. Even if it gets torn or stained, the tearing can be relatively easily sewn and repaired and many solvents are suitable for cotton upholstery.
If your upholstery gets stained with a piece of food or any other solid material, you should first remove that part and then apply liquid. Using liquid on the stain before removing the solid parts will result in imprinting the stain even deeper into the surface. Just compare that with having a chewed gum attached to your jeans. If you do not remove it first mechanically, it will never go down, but even more inside. To remove those pieces of food, you should use a blunt knife. A sharp one might damage the upholstery even further.Whatever type of furniture you have, be careful with the maintenance and always stick to the cleaning instructions. If you see that the problem is too big for you, always ask for help from professional cleaners.
