Here at Bayside Carpet Cleaning, we clean much more than just floors–we do tile and furniture as well! Out of those, we get requests from time to time about cleaning microfiber, as it is seen as one of the toughest materials to clean. Believe it or not, giving your microfiber furniture a quick cleaning before the professionals come in is much easier than you think. Read on to find out how you can give your microfiber the clean it deserves!
Its fibers may be intimidating, but cleaning microfiber simply comes down to a simple process. The first thing that you are going to want to do is to vacuum the surface, and get off as much dirt and dust as possible. This will make the rest of the cleaning job much, much easier.
Now, grab some rubbing alcohol, a spray bottle, and a clean sponge. Put the alcohol into the bottle, and spray over areas that are especially dirty. After, grab your sponge and start scrubbing! Unlike other pieces of furniture, you can scrub with microfiber to get the dirt out, as the rubbing alcohol works as a solvent. However, DO NOT try this with carpet. Dab instead, as rubbing will push the stain deeper into the fibers.
Feel free to scrub hard; you are going to want to get out as much dirt and grime that you possibly can! Just be sure to only work on one section at a time, as you do not want the furniture absorbing all of the rubbing alcohol.
After your scrubbing, let it dry and you’re done! It’s that easy. This method works great when you need to give your furniture a quick scrubbing, or just in-between professional cleanings.
At least once a year, you should be having your microfiber thoroughly cleaned, and a whole lot of dirt can accumulate into just one piece of furniture, one that you sit in on a daily basis! Give us a call today for a free, in-home estimate.
