Upholstery Cleaning Tips for Corduroy Sofas

Corduroy – Known for its distinctive ridged texture and plush feel, corduroy sofas bring a sense of warmth and depth to any living area. While the durability of corduroy sofas makes them an ideal choice for home upholstery, the very same ridges that exude charm can also harbour dirt, dust, mites, crumbs, pollens, spills and whatnot. Hence, it needs routine upholstery cleaning in Melbourne from expert cleaners. However, it is always helpful to follow this comprehensive guide on keeping your corduroy sofas in pristine condition, and decking up your living space.

What is Corduroy in The First Place? 

Corduroy is a woven fabric, often characterised by its distinctive vertical ribs or wales. These wedges can vary in width from very narrow to broad ribs, according to which they can affect the sofa’s aesthetics and cleaning regime. Usually made from cotton or cotton-blended fabric, corduroy sofas combine a unique balance of comfort and resilience for daily use. But even then, they need upholstery cleaning service in Melbourne every 2–3 months.

Spot Cleaning Corduroy Sofas

The key to handling stains is SPEED. Blot any kinds of stains immediately with a clean, dry cloth to absorb as much liquid as possible. Do NOT rub the surface, as it will cause the liquid to penetrate deeper into the fabric. If it’s a general stain, a solution of mild detergent and water can work wonders. For greasier stains, try dry-cleaning solvents, and even better, seek the help of upholstery cleaners in Melbourne. Avoid using hair dryers to heat the “patch”, as it will cause more damage to the fabric.

Deep Cleaning Corduroy Sofas 

Once in a while, your sofa needs a more thorough cleaning. Corduroy sofas are no exception! But first, check if your sofa care label permits steam cleaning. If it does, it is best to enlist the help of carpet steam cleaning from experts. It can rejuvenate the fabrics, remove deeply deeply-rooted dust & dirt, and also eliminate allergens. Most importantly, it is best to avoid using DIY practices here, as you could be doing more harm than good.

Handling Tough Stains on Corduroy Sofas 

This is where the real challenge lies. To remove odours, sprinkle baking soda on the sofa and let it sit for at least 20 minutes, followed by vacuuming. Baking soda is known for its supremely odour-absorbing properties without damaging the fabric. But for stubborn stains, you need the help of upholstery cleaners in Melbourne.

But if you do want to try removing the stains, you can mix a small amount of white vinegar with water and blot the mixture on the stain area. It is always recommended to test it on an inconspicuous area first. And for stains that deny all of your efforts or you’re unsure about the approach, it is best to turn to upholstery cleaning experts like Jig’s Cleaning!
