Everything You Need To Know To Protect Your Furniture


Wash & Clean It Regularly 

One of the best ways to keep your fabric furniture looking and feeling its best is to wash it regularly. Dirt clings to fabric fibers, which can lead to premature wear and tear. In addition to a regular vacuuming regimen, it’s also important to spot and treat stains and spills right away. This will help minimize the chances of a stain setting into the fabric and become a permanent fixture on your sofa or chair. 

Stain Resistant Spray 

Stain resistant spray is a great way to keep your upholstery looking great and protect it from stains. The best stain resistant sprays work by creating an invisible barrier that liquid spills cannot penetrate. Some of these furniture protectors also help keep odor away from the upholstery. Some are even pet-friendly and have UV protection. Using these stain resistant sprays can save your couch from hard-to-remove stains and help you avoid the need to reupholster it. 

Furniture Covers 

When you have a pretty new couch or chair, it’s important to protect it from the elements. Use furniture covers that are made from durable fabrics, such as cotton and linen. These are washable and will last a long time, making them a cost-effective way to extend the life of your sofa or armchair. You can also make your own covers without sewing using materials you have around the house, such as blankets, sheets, or drop-clothes. 

To start, staple your fabric to the top of the back frame with a cardboard trick. Once it’s secured, flip the cover over and staple it to the front. For the sides, use tack strips to secure your fabric to the frame. It will leave some staples on the bottom, but they can easily be covered by muslin later.
