If you’ve recently purchased a new sofa from your living room furniture store, it’s important that you take several precautionary steps to protect it from becoming damaged. Whether your sofa is made from leather or fabric, it can easily become stained, torn, or worn down if not carefully maintained. Here is a guide to protecting your new sofa:
Invest in Window Treatments
Sun bleaching is one of the quickest ways your new sofa can become damaged. The sun’s harsh UV rays are a major threat to any textile, regardless of its color. Not only does the sun bleach materials, but it also generates heat that can cause vulnerable sofas made from leather to crack and tear. Invest in stylish window treatments to protect your sofa from these damaging rays.
Rotate Reversible Cushions
If your new sofa’s cushions are reversible, be sure to rotate them frequently. This simple action helps prevent cushions from wearing down inside due to frequent use by your family and visiting guests.
Save All Food and Drink for the Kitchen
If you want to keep your sofa looking its best, avoid eating in your living room. While it may be comfortable to do so, food particles can easily get trapped in the crevices of your sofa, and liquid spills can spell disaster for the materials.
Keep It Clean
To keep your sofa looking like new for years after you’ve purchased it, clean it frequently. Leather sofas can be gently blotted with a cloth to remove any dust or debris and should never be treated with anything other than a water-based leather-cleaning product. Fabric sofas should be vacuumed weekly.
