No cloth takes on’rough and tumble’ households quite like microfiber. Durable, water absorbent and soft microfiber sofas are excellent for dealing with kids’ fingers and moulting family pets.
However, even the fabrics are vulnerable to gathering dust and dirt. To keep your cloth looking fresh, read our expert tips.
Microfiber is an ultra thin cloth (it is even thinner than a strand of silk), making cleaning a delicate business.
We recommend peeking under your sofa cushions, to be certain you’re using the perfect cleaning materials for your microfiber couch. Apart from the loose change you are bound to find, here you’ll find an attached piece of cloth with a letter on it: this is your couch’s individual”cleaning code”.
TOP TIP: While microfiber sofas are highly water absorbent, not all kinds are suitable for cleaning . Assess your couch’s cleaning code to be 100 percent sure.
Thin fibres are what create microfiber sofas so luxuriously soft. Similar to other materials, like suede, microfiber isn’t a stranger to pesky dust and crumbs.
To loosen dirt from your microfiber couch, just connect the upholstery attachment to your vacuum (if you are unsure which attachment this is, it is the one with the broad, horizontal nozzle). Move the nozzle over your couch, making sure to enter all the nooks and crannies down the sides and the back. We recommend doing this once a week, to prevent germs build-up.
If you observe the fibres have flattened post-vacuum, it is easy to restore your couch to its normal texture by brushing with a dry, soft-bristled brush (these look like the type you would use in the bath).
Watermarks and wet stains are much more common than you might think, although microfiber is notorious for soaking up water. To handle stains you’ll need to know which cleaning materials are perfect for the job.
If you accidentally spill liquid on your microfiber couch, don’t panic – it is easy to clean up it. To remove the stain, simply grab a damp cloth (after checking your cleaning code, of course) and wash away softly, making sure not to scrub into the fibres. Baby wipes are another option if you’re cleaning up spills.
Dry stains, such as chocolate, can be a pain to remove on sofas. With microfiber, however, all you need is a soft-bristled brush. To lift the mark from the cloth scrub back and forth until the stain has disappeared. Next, if your cleaning code provides the green light to you, the next step is to remove any lingering marks with a damp cloth.
TOP TIP: Using a damp cloth to clean up your spills? Hover a hair-dryer (on its coolest setting) around six inches away from the mark to evaporate any residue.
Oil and grease stains have a habit of clinging even. All you need is dishwasher soap, or WD-40 to clean grease stains that are filthy away. Apply directly to the stain, blot with a towel or sponge and wash lightly until – viola! – the stain is gone.
There are, while microfiber sofas can be freshened up in your home. If you get a much-loved sofa you want to spruce up, take a look at our reupholstery and sofa cover choices.
