Couch Cleaning and Kids

Posted on

Couch CleaningWhen you have kids there will undoubtedly be stains and dirt on your furniture at some point. This can range from food, dirt from feet and urine to name just a few. To save your furniture it’s important to know how to treat each type of stains. The stain management can be used with simple effective methods.

Beverage

Drinks tend to be the most common stain that happens to furniture. If you have removable couch cushions, take the cushion out and place it sideways. This allows the drink to spill off the fabric and prevent it from seeping further into the material. You can lightly dab the edges of the spill with paper towels.

Allow the stain to dry to prevent attracting mould. Food spills need a professional cleaning to prevent bacteria and mould growth. If untreated bacteria can cause the furniture to acquire a bad sour smell.

Urine

Urine and poo happen mostly when kids are going through potty training. Urine is dealt with the same way as other drink spills. For poo, sprinkle the mess with baking soda to deodorize and dry it up. You will need professional furniture cleaning.

Dirty Feet

Kids will always climb and jump around the furniture. Unfortunately, dirt from this can’t be cleaned with regular methods. Just remember to schedule annual furniture cleaning to remove dirt, bacteria and other debris.
