Local Cleaning Services
Of course, not everyone has the time (or inclination) to clean their own upholstery. Thankfully there are many affordable cleaning services around these days and unless you live in a very remote area, there's a good chance you'll have some nearby. Create a good first impression to your guests, one that shows you that you care about both your furniture and home.
Take Care Eating & Drinking Whilst Watching TV
Some prefer to eat their meals in front of the TV and this is actually quite a common theme these days. Eating and drinking whilst watching TV often leads to accidents with the worst of all, spilling fruit juice or wine. These often stain and depending on the fabric, can be extremely difficult (if not impossible in some cases) to remove. So always take care when eating and drinking whilst watching TV.
Keep your furniture clean and free from dirt. Not only will this prolong the life of the piece, but it will be far more inviting for both you, your family and your guests. Cleaning advice is free available online and many professionals will be more than willing to give you advice. Professional cleaning services are readily available and their pricing is often affordable.
If the fabric on your furniture cannot be cleaned, re-upholstery may be a valid option. There are many fabric providers online. Clearance upholstery fabric from Selby Soft Furnishings is a great option, but there also other providers you can choose from. It's up to you which you choose, but remember to keep your new upholstery clean!
