Nothing is more satisfying than having a piece of furniture that is not only good to look at but is also comfortable and gives you a great feeling. You would want to stay there forever especially after a busy and long day.
One of the hassles is cleaning it up. Surely, it has to be dusted and cleaned regularly. But there are also things that are unexpected such as food spillage. Then it is also a different story if you have pets or kids.
Suede is a material that is pleasing for the eye and also feels good to be rested on. But as said before, cleaning will be a hassle, and the suede is one of the more challenging ones. It is very important to maintain a suede not only to make it look good but also to lengthen its manner.
Depending on your furniture’s situation, you will clean your suede furniture in different ways.
This is one of the ways to maintain your furniture. If there are some movie nights or some guests over, there will surely be crumbs that will be left. Even if that is not the case, everyday dust and dirt will be stuck. This is most relevant if you have pets. It is a big part of them to shed and their fur will surely be caught up with the suede. For this reason, it is important to vacuum your suede furniture regularly. It will be handy if your vacuum has an upholstery attachment because it will be a lot easier.
2. Use a Solution
It will be different if your furniture managed to have stains. One of the ways to easily remove it is if it is still fresh and wet. So if something spilled, you will have to take action right away. You will not really need any solution to this. You will just need something to absorb it like a cloth then wipe the remaining with a damp cloth. But if it does not go away, you can apply a solution to it. You could either use something bought but you could just simply use rubbing alcohol.
If you are dealing with old stains though, it will be trickier. One of the solutions is using an eraser. There are available special erasers for suede, but an ordinary office or school eraser works out just fine.
Another factor for the maintenance of suede is brushing it. This will be done regularly and also right after cleaning a stain. The reason for this is to remove more dirt and also for restoration. The kind of brush you will use is not the same as you use for your hair. Instead, you will use something that is made with soft bristles. To brush it, you will need to do it in circular motions and gently. This will soften the material. The pressure is needed more for the part that recently has the stain removed. This will especially be needed if you have a pet in your home to remove their fur.
