DIY ventures are always popular and have gained more popularity when people are seating idle in their house due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As people in Fulham are seating idle, they try to undertake cleaning of upholstery as a DIY venture. We know that producers and manufacturers of upholstery recommend cleaning them at an interval of 12 to 18 months. The cleaning needs to happen before visible dust appears on the surface. Now, the question is- is DIY the right method, or should we call professionals having the expertise to offer perfect upholstery cleaning in Fulham.
Let us have a look at some of the reasons why we should hire professionals than undertake DIY ventures to clean the upholstery.
Cleaning upholstery fabric is challenging
The fabric of upholstery is either natural or manmade and such materials require specialized cleaning. Suppose silk is the fabric of your upholstery if you clean it with high, alkaline cleaning agent then it may damage the fabric. Moreover, bleach can dissolve the fabric and water can stretch the fabric. So, you can see how different cleaning ingredients and methods can cause damage to the fabric of the upholstery.
It is that upholstery fabric falls into one of the eight different categories called cleaning codes. It is not possible for a common house owner to know about these codes and likewise clean the upholstery. Professional upholstery cleaners have the knowledge and the expertise about how to clean upholstery following such cleaning codes. So, it is for sure you that you will not only have a proper cleaning of the upholstery but that too without damage.
It is tricky to remove stains
You may be having a stain in your upholstery fabric, which you desire to remove. As it is just a stain, you may endeavour a DIY method and make the greatest mistake of your life. Do you know that there are certain common cleaning reagents that instead of removing the stains make it deep-seated or may even make them permanent? Yes, we common people cannot know much. The professional upholstery cleaners after having a look at the stain know which cleaning reagent to use to remove the stain rather than to make them deep-seated.
Furniture with upholstery is expensive
It is for sure that you agree upholstered furniture is more expensive than traditional furniture. A sofa or a couch can last for decades if it has proper maintenance and cleaning. It is not possible to; properly clean a couch or a sofa by us, the common house owners. We are not aware of the cleaning agents, do not have the proper tools and lack experience in cleaning. So, if we undertake a DIY venture then instead of cleaning, we damage an expensive sofa or a couch. Having such a bad experience is out of the question when we hire professional upholstery cleaners.
Professional cleaning recommended by manufacturers

It is best to adhere to manufacturers recommendations than to perform DIY cleaning. Unprofessional cleaning may even void the manufacturer’s warranty. So, even if you have free time due to COVID-19 lockdown use it in other useful activities rather than cleaning the upholstery.
