Let's Keep It Fresh

Cleaning Tips for Window Coverings & Upholstery


If someone in your home suffers from allergies, if you have pets who cuddle with you on the furniture, or if you have kids with too many juice cups and sticky fingers, you know your sofa likely needs a good cleaning.

And guess what? The same is true of your window treatments. While hard treatments such as most blinds and shutters can be wiped down with a damp cloth, draperies, shades, and valances require a more involved approach.

Not only will annual cleanings keep your window coverings and furniture fresh, it will also extend the life of each piece. Today, we're sharing our best tips and resources for protecting your soft furnishing investments.

1.

CLEAN ACCORDING
TO FABRIC TYPE

 

How you clean your furniture and window treatments depends on the fabric of each. If you aren't sure what materials you are dealing with, ask someone who would know. This will help avoid any damage to your furnishings.

QUICK TIPS:
  • Leather furniture: Start with warm water and a soft cloth and be sure to apply a leather cream conditioner when done.
  • Velvet drapery: Try a mix of baking soda and lemon juice on any stains after vacuuming thoroughly. 
If you are concerned about ruining any item, consult a professional first.

USE PLANT-BASED PRODUCTS

You don't have to be a hippie to appreciate chemical-free cleaners that are safe for kids, pets, and you. Here are a few brands to consider adding to your cleaning arsenal: 

3. 

HIRE A PRO TO GET IT DONE QUICKLY

If you have expensive window treatments or upholstery and prefer to leave the job to a professional, we highly recommend doing so - especially if you are short on time, specialized cleaning knowledge, or appropriate resources.

Since your soft furnishings should be cleaned every spring or summer, you can rest assured this annual expense is more of an investment that will prolong the enjoyment of your home.
 

DESIGN TREND

Sustainability is trending.


Home furnishings will continue to increase in sustainability, from using high quality, ethically sourced materials to supporting the manufacturing of such products in safe and humane work environments - as it should be!

DESIGN TIP

Get an air purifier.

 
A beautiful home deserves clean, fresh air all year long. Whether you're sick of stale, winter air or you prefer not to let your neighbor's lawn chemicals float through your open windows, you'll love the results of a high-quality air purifier in your home.
