How to Vacuum Furniture.
It’s no secret that carpets have to be vacuumed regularly to keep them clean and make sure they last as long as possible. However, it’s the same for your furniture. If you want your furniture pieces to remain well-kept and clean, they must be vacuumed regularly as well.
Vacuuming furniture is a breeze when you have the right tools for the job. You need a high-quality vacuum, an upholstery attachment, and a good technique.
How to Properly Vacuum Furniture
- Clean the surface first. Start your vacuuming process by cleaning the exposed surfaces of your furniture. Use your upholstery attachment on the top and sides of the cushions, on the back of the piece, and on the arms.
- Vacuum under the cushions. Next, remove and clean under the cushions. At this point, you may have to switch from your upholstery attachment to a crevice tool to ensure you collect as much dirt as possible.
- Tackle pet hair and other stains. Once your piece of furniture is generally vacuumed, it’s time to deal with the pet hair and other inset stains. If necessary, treat the stains with a cleaning product and let it sit until the stain is lifted. If your vacuum has a pet hair attachment, this is the time to use it.
- Go under and behind, too. Lastly, make sure you clean under and around your furniture. Some people choose to move the furniture before they start vacuuming, while others move the furniture after they’ve vacuumed the floor. Whatever your preference, it’s important to clean around all of your furniture regularly.
Cleaning your furniture isn’t a chore that must be done every single time you vacuum, but it should be done at least once a week. With a quality vacuum, like the ZeroG Weightless Vac, and all its attachments, the process of vacuuming your furniture can take less than fifteen minutes.
