  • To remove the lint, debris and pet hair that get into your microfiber furniture, you should vacuum it with the upholstery attachment of a powerful vacuum cleaner. Aim to do this on a monthly basis or more if you have children and pets.
  • Treat any spills immediately. The best way is to use an absorbent white terry cloth and blot the stain until completely dry. You should never scrub over a spillage as it can worsen it.
  • You can use a mild detergent to remove stains or spots. Blot on as little as possible and then blot off until dry, without scrubbing. Always ensure that you never use products containing bleach as they would discolor your furniture.
  • Should the stains remain after using a mild detergent you can try using dry cleaning products. Always ensure that the product you purchase is suitable for its intended use, and follow the instructions on the packaging.
  • For a professional result you can take your furniture to be cleaned by a specialist. This way you do not have to worry about using an unsuitable chemical or the wrong attachment of a carpet washer that could cause the microfiber to crease and shrink.

    In order to keep your microfiber furniture looking as great as when you first bought it, you need to make sure you take the time to clean it the right way.
