Tips for Suede Upholstery Cleaning for Encino Residents and Business

There are so many types of materials in our home, and each has its own set of instructions for cleaning. Your hardwood floors have to be cleaned one way, while the tile in the bathroom has to be cleaned a different way, the same goes for your upholstery. When it comes to upholstery, there is yet another set of complex cleaning options that depend on the type of material used. Suede upholstery cleaning is probably the last on the list since it's the least common fabric used, though on of the most attractive. For the best suede upholstery cleaning, Encino residents are best served by seeking the help of a professional company such as Heaven's Best, but there are some things you can do to keep your suede upholstery clean until the next time we come out.

For proper suede Upholstery Cleaning in Encino residents should really understand what suede is and how it's made. Suede is leather, but made from the under part of the hide. The fibers are carefully raised and buffed to make the material smooth, silky, and velvety to the touch. The best way to care for your Nu Buck upholstery is to prevent soiling, but being that it's made for home use, the need for cleaning will eventually come about.

The best way to keep your suede clean is to use a napping brush on your upholstery. You can find these at any furniture store, or your local variety store in the cleaning section.

A few things to remember when cleaning suede are

•  Rub gently to avoid damaging the nap

•  Rube in all directions since the nap doesn't flow in any particular way

•  Use a dry sponge after cleaning the nap to create an even look

•  Do not use water on suede

•  Always use a water proof agent on your suede to prevent damage

Keep in mind that like leather, suede can dry out and crack, sealing in the moisture with a suede specific sealant is a good way to keep your upholstery looking fresh as well as repelling damage causing stains. Never put petroleum jelly or Vaseline on your suede, it will stain and can't be removed. If any part if your suede upholstery dries out, contact us for professional upholstery cleaning.
