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 All Aces 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 Brisbane. 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.
A professional Brisbane upholstery cleaning service by All Aces Services will help you keep your furniture cleaner for longer.

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.
