How to maintain new furniture

You would be puzzled why a new sofa need to be maintained.
Let me share you with the reason and the method to maintain:
There’s your new sofa or chair reigning gloriously in your living room or office:the perfect shape,style and size,resplendent
in the fabric that you agonized over for weeks.A year later it looks as though it’s been through a bad episode of the Survivor.
The cushions are lumpy,the fabric is wrinkled and dingy,and everything looks crooked and unkempt.
What happened?Assuming you started with a quality piece,you didn’t remember to fluff,flip an fuss!
Fluff.Cause the cushions are made of soft materials instead of concrete,they must be regularly fluffed to maintain their shape
and comfort.By fluffed,I mean punched,prodded,poked and pushed around to refresh the shape and loft of the cushions...just
like you do with your bed pillows when they flatten out.Firmer cushions generally take less fluffing,and squishy ones filled with
down take more,but any cushion that gets sat on should be fluffed at least every few days.I generally fluff mine every night just
before I go to bed to keep them looking and feeling great.And it;s not a big deal;it takes about two minutes.
Flip.About every two weeks,you should flip your upholstery cushions.This will ensure that they wear evenly and will help to
maintain their shape.Both the seat and back cushions need this regular change to perform their best.
If your chair or sofa has an attached back cushion,this will be a bit more difficult but can still be accomplished.Attached back
cushions usually have a zipper opening at the bottom,and the cushion innards can be pulled out,turned over and reinserted.
On a three-cushion sofa,people generally avoid the center cushion like the plague.Consequently,
That cushion will get the least wear.If your sofa has T-cushions(meaning they wraps around the front of each arm),you can’t
move the center cushion to the end-you can only flip it over.But if your sofa has cushions that are the same size and shape,
the center one can be regularly rotated to the ends,greatly extending your cushion life.
Fuss.It’s easy to see dust on a shiny tabletop,and you’re quickly motivated to get out the feather duster.But even though you
usually can’t see it,the same amount of dust has settled on your upholstery.As we sit on a dusty cushion,the dust gets down
into the fibers and acts like sandpaper,causing the material to material to wear much more quickly.So every time you dust your
fabric furniture.Get out and vacuum and give the fabric a quick once-over.
A couple of other things:Direct sunlight is the bitter enemy of your new upholstery fabric.Ultraviolet rays are just as destructive
to your piece as small children with permanently closed.Stain protection is one of the best investments you can make in upholstery
care.I completely avoid every extended warranty offered to me by a salesperson,but even I buy stain protection.Not only will
professionally applied stain protection help make your piece easier to clean,but it will help retard the effects of ultraviolet rays.
