Get more life out of your vinyl upholstery…give it a little TLC.
Vinyl upholstery is an option many people choose for household furnishings and car interiors because of its superior durability qualities. If maintained properly, vinyl upholstery will last much longer than most other fabrics. The key is to maintain it properly and keep it clean on a regular basis.
One of the secrets of keeping vinyl upholstery in shape is to deal with surface spills as soon as possible. In most situations, wiping up soda, coffee, or other liquids immediately after a spill takes place will mean just wiping away the spill with a damp cloth. If the liquid is allowed to dry on the vinyl, it will often take more drastic cleaning efforts to completely remove the residue.
While many people don’t think to vacuum or dust vinyl upholstery as part of their regular cleaning routine, this simple action can make a big difference in how your vinyl holds up over time. Dust often collects in tiny folds on vinyl-upholstered furniture. This becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and allergens, and often produces unpleasant odors. Vacuuming out the dust that accumulate in the folds eliminates the odor and also will help keep your vinyl upholstery looking like new for a longer period of time.
