How to clean a couch?

1- Vacuum the Couch

Use a hand vacuum or the brush attachment on your vacuum to clean debris and dirt from the sofa surface. Be sure to clean the crevices where pet hair, food crumbs and dirt accumulate. If the cushions are not attached, remove them and vacuum both sides.

2- Clean the Wood or Metal Areas

Wipe down the sofa feet and other non-fabric parts of the sofa with a solution of warm water and liquid dish soap.

3- Determine the Type of Fabric

Find the tag on the couch and read the instructions for how to clean upholstery. Here are the codes found on labels:

WS: Use a mild detergent with a steam vacuum or a dry-cleaning detergent.
S: Use a dry cleaner detergent only.
X: Use a vacuum only. No water.
W: You can use water to clean it.

4- Remove Stains

Knowing how to clean a couch means knowing how to remove stains. You can use a commercial cleaner or you can make your own cleaners from natural ingredients you have in the kitchen. Homemade cleaners are cheaper and kinder to the earth.

5- Let the Couch Dry

Use a towel to soak up any excess water remaining on the sofa surface. Let the sofa air dry. If it’s humid, you may want to set up a box fan pointed at the sofa for speed drying. Water can cause cushions and fabric to mildew.

More Couch Cleaning Tips

Lint Roller

If your couch is made from a fabric the easily attracts lint, hair or dust, you should keep a lint roller on hand that you can exclusively use for your couch. This works best for a couch that only requires a slight amount of de-linting, but it can work for larger jobs, too. In a pinch, you can use large pieces of packing tape to de-puppy the couch

Leather Soap and Conditioner

If you have a leather couch, leather soap and conditioner is something you can use to keep it looking clean and fresh. You also can use a slightly damp, clean rag to wipe off my leather furniture about once a week.

Carpet Maintenance

  1. Take your shoes off: Shoes can drag in all sorts of nasty things so place a mat at the door to hold them. 
  2. Vacuum Often: Vacuum at least two times a week and more if the room gets a lot of foot traffic. Your vacuum is the best defense against early retirement for a carpet so keep it maintained.
  3. Keep a Carpet-Cleaning Kit Handy:
    1. lint-free rags that can be slightly dampened to blot spills (never rub as it will push the spill into the carpet fibers). 
    2. a bottle of liquid or dry carpet cleaner is a must.
    3. a plastic scraper. This lets you scrape away as much of the cleaner as possible without rubbing it into the carpet fibers.
    4. soft-bristle brush to brush the fibers of the carpet back into shape.
  4. (Don’t) Let the Sun Shine In
    UV rays from sunlight can age carpet so shut blinds or drapes before you leave for the day.
