Nice furniture can help a home to look and feel warm and inviting, however worn and battered furniture can make a home seem cold and uninviting. Just because you have pets in your household does not mean you need to accept that you will have worn and battered furniture, you just need to know how to handle upholstery cleaning. We will discuss a few ways that you can keep your furniture looking good even if you do have pets.

Some of the most used pieces of upholstered furniture in your home are likely the sofa and maybe an armchair. If you have fabric furniture your upholstery cleaning will not be so hard, even if you have pets in your home.

A ling roller will pull the nap of the furniture up and out as oppose to scrubbing it and making the hair and dirt move deeper into the fibers of the fabric.

Whisk this solution together well until it forms into a suds solution. Next you should use a clean cotton cloth to massage the mixture into small areas of your furniture. Work your way all around until you have covered the entire piece of furniture. Use a rubber spatula to remove the dirty suds and then rinse the furniture with a water dampened cloth. This process will probably take you some time, but it is worth it to have a new clean piece of furniture in the end. Be sure to allow the fabric to dry completely before you use it so that you do not transfer dirt from your body onto the damp service.
