Upholstery is the fabric used to cover pieces of furniture and the padding that is stuffed inside for comfort.

How to Properly Care for Upholstery in Bishopbriggs

Caring for your upholstered furniture is essential to ensuring you get a good lifespan out of it. Here are some of our care guidelines to help ensure your newly upholstered furniture lasts for as long as possible;

  • Rotate loose cushions on a regular basis to ensure that one side is not worn out more than the other
  • Avoid putting any sharp objects near the upholstery to prevent snagging fabric
  • Avoid pets being on re-upholstered furniture (where possible) to avoid snagging fabric
  • Do not machine wash any removable covers on cushions etc.
  • Clean accidental spillages immediately to avoid deep staining
  • Try and avoid placing furniture in direct sunlight
  • Plump cushions regularly

Following these guidelines as much as possible will help you get a lot of wear out of your upholstered furniture.

Furniture Placement

Furniture placement is essential, not just for the furniture but for other aspects of your property as well, there are some of our essential tips on furniture placement;

  • To avoid getting scratches on wooden floors put protective felt underneath any furniture that comes into contact with wooden floors
  • Reclining furniture should never be forced open or closed, bear in mind that reclining mechanisms will be stiff to begin with but will loosen over time
  • Ensure that there is plenty of room for a recliner to operate without it hitting any other pieces of furniture or walls etc.
  • If you are unwrapping new or re-upholstered furniture and the fabric appears creased and flat, simply take the palm of your hand and smooth over the cushions in circular motions

Aftercare of Leather Upholstery

If you have opted for leather re-upholstery, there are a number of things you can do to help protect it and keep it looking good for as long as possible, some of our leather upholstery aftercare tips include;

  • Never use products or cleaning methods that aren’t recommended by the manufacturer (if unsure then get in touch with us and one of our expert upholsters can give you advice)
  • Regularly wipe leather upholstery with a soft, damp cloth to ensure the leather stays looking new
  • Vacuum the dirt and dust that builds up underneath the cushions
  • Keep leather furniture at least 50cm away from any source of heat, this will help prevent cracking and heat related damage
  • Blot any liquid that has been spilt on the upholstery straight away, do not rub the area as this could cause damage and discolouration
  • If you have light coloured leather, be wary about sitting on it whilst wearing denim or non-colour-fast dark clothes, especially if it is wet or damp, as the dye can transfer onto the upholstery

Prevent Damage or Harm Your Upholstery

Damage to a newly upholstered piece of furniture is the last thing that you want, here are some tips on how to prevent damage;

  • Avoid placing furniture in areas that experience extreme heat (either right next to a heater or air conditioner) as this can cause cracking and cause it to wear much faster
  • Avoid sitting on the arms of the sofas as this can damage the furniture’s frame
  • Avoid sitting on the edges of cushions as this can cause them to go out of shape
  • Avoid leaving newspapers or magazines on upholstery as this can cause dye to transfer and mark your furniture
