There are a few ways to keep your sofa and other upholstery clean. Some are things that you should do regularly, and some at larger lengths of time or when messes happen. And of course, it always helps to schedule a professional upholstery cleaning and sanitizing service in Fort Smith, AR with Elmer’s Chem-Dry!


Your vacuum is your trusty companion when it comes to keeping your upholstery (and your carpets) clean on a weekly basis. Without having to get into water and cleaning solutions, you can utilize a hand-held or standard vacuum with an attachment to clean the surface of your sofas.

Dry Brush

Sometimes removing dirt and crumbs can be as simple as using a dry brush to loosen and sweep it off. Be sure to lay down something to catch the debris or vacuum after.

Wash Covers

Often, fabric couches and other types of upholstery have covers that you can simply unzip and wash in a washing machine. Washing these covers every season can help keep your sofas looking clean and smelling fresh. Just be sure to check for the specific washing instructions for your couch covers first!

Try Baking Soda

If you have pets, your couches and upholstery may start to smell like pet-odors. Sprinkling baking soda over a fabric couch can be a great way to remove odors and loosen stains, before vacuuming it up. You can also create a solution for a deeper clean or spot clean, with equal parts baking soda and water. Take care using baking soda on some upholstered surfaces like microfiber and leather.
