Keeping your fabric sofa clean and in top condition is easier than you might think. Here's a straightforward approach to handle stains and maintain your sofa:

1. Vacuum Weekly

Use a soft brush attachment on low suction to vacuum seats, armrests, and headrests. This removes dust and prevents dirt from embedding into the fabric.

2. Act Quickly on Spills

Address spills immediately to prevent stains from setting in. For the best fabric protection, consider using a fabric protector like KingGuard+®. Check with your retailer if it's already applied to your sofa.

3. Choose the Right Cleaners

Only use cleaners specifically designed for your sofa's fabric to avoid damage. Products like King-Care® are formulated to clean and protect your sofa. Apply these products every 6 to 8 weeks, but avoid over-cleaning.

4. Handle Pilling with Care

Pilling is normal with regular use. A Fabric Pill Remover can easily get rid of these tiny balls without harming the fabric.

5. Avoid Harsh Products

Never use detergents, alcohol, or unsuitable chemicals on your sofa. These can cause damage and discolouration.

6. Protect from Heat

Keep the sofa away from heaters to prevent fabric deterioration. Also, try to minimise pet contact to avoid wear and tear from natural oils and dirt.

7. Deal with Spills Smartly

For liquid spills, blot with a super-absorbent cloth without rubbing. Let the area air dry.

8. Regular Protection

Applying a fabric protection product can help extend your sofa's life. Even with protection, regular vacuuming is necessary. Consider professional cleaning every 12 to 18 months for a deep clean.

By following these simple steps, you can keep your fabric sofa looking fresh and welcoming, ensuring it remains a beloved part of your home décor.
