How much time do you have available to spend on cleaning furniture? Probably not much. Once dishes are cleaned, carpet is vacuumed and shelves and tables are dusted, most busy moms and home owners don’t have much time left to address their dirty furniture.
If you don’t want to worry about dirty furniture in your home, you might want to consider purchasing microfiber couches, chairs and loveseats, especially if children or pets live with you. This is because microfiber is the easiest furniture upholstery to clean and keep clean.
Why is Microfiber Easy to Clean?
First and foremost, microfiber upholstery is easy to clean because it generates very little dust and lint compared to other furniture fabrics. On some fabrics, dust and lint build up and even submerge into the fabric, requiring constant attention to keep clean. Because microfiber fabric is sewn so tightly with man-made materials, it is almost impenetrable. Therefore, most of the dirt and dust sit on the surface of the furniture and can be removed with regular vacuuming.
Does Microfiber Stain Easy?
Another reason why microfiber is the best low-maintenance furniture is because it is very difficult to stain it. Spills and liquids on microfiber initially bubble up on the surface rather than immediately seeping into the cushions and upholstery. The bubbling allows time for you to grab a clean white cloth or towel and blot up the spill before any staining or permanent damage occurs.
Is Microfiber Durable?
Microfiber is extremely durable thanks to the tightly woven fabric. Because it is woven so tightly, microfiber has great flexibility and can withstand heavy use and will return to its normal shape and look once it is done being used.
How to Care for Microfiber Furniture?
If you want your microfiber furniture to remain in good shape and have its quality last for years, there is still some maintenance you will want to do, although not as often as other upholstery fabrics. For one, you will want to vacuum the microfiber furniture once or twice a week. Most vacuum models nowadays feature hand tools that can be used while you are in the process of vacuuming your carpet.
Another way to maintain the quality of microfiber furniture is to consider purchasing a slip cover. Slip covers are a relatively inexpensive way to protect furniture and can be cleaned very easily.
While microfiber is one of the easiest types of furniture to clean, maintain and care for, it is still recommended that you have it cleaned at least once a year by a professional upholstery cleaner in Waukesha in order to remove any dirt that has sunk into the fiber and renew the microfiber furniture’s color and quality.
