Buyer's Guide

ARE THERE ANY SCRATCH PROOF FABRICS FOR SOFAS?

Though no material or fabric can ever be scratch or tear proof. Some material/fabrics offer have a higher resistance to tears and fraying as well as scratching. For example most stain and waterproof fabrics such as leather have a higher resistance when it comes to scratches, tears and fraying, also polyester is quite scratch resistant as well. If you’re worried about scratches and sorts, you could opt to buy a cover/protector for your sofa.

 

CAN I CHANGE THE COVERS ON MY SOFA?

Changing a sofa cover will depend mostly on the type and brand of sofa you have. Some sofas come with removable covers and so you can change a cover if you wish to. Other sofas however, especially those upholstered with certain material say leather for instance, the covers cannot be changed unless you go with your sofa to those professionally qualified for such. Lest you get your sofa ruined and will have no choice but to throw it away.

 

WILL SLEEPING ON MY SOFA RUIN IT?

Well sofas are meant for sitting, so unless it a convertible sofa, constantly taking naps on it will probably result in a few deformations such as sagging, flat cushions, or a weak frame, leading to a wobbly sofa or a deformed shape.

 

HOW CAN I PROTECT MY SOFA FROM PETS?

Well other than getting your pet its own bed so it stays away from your sofa, another option would be to keep your pets outside and ban them from staying indoors. But with different reasons others don’t sit well with this idea, so if you want to keep your pet indoors and protect your couch the best option would be to buy a sofa cover/protector. This will not only protect your sofa from your pets, but kids as well, and dirt, and at times oet fur which may be really annoying especially on fabric sofas.

WHERE CAN I BUY THE MOST COMFORTABLE SOFA?

Well comfort entirely depends on what a person seeks, but for a wide variety to choose from, you could try online shopping sites or you could visit any furniture store and try out the ones you think suit your taste. If all else fails, you could get recommendations from people.

 

HOW DO I CLEAN MY SOFA?

If your sofa is of leather upholstery, there are commercial leather cleaning products you could try, or simply vacuum and wipe the dirt build up with a damp cloth. There are also multiple leather cleaning solutions you could make such as the well known white vinegar solution, but it would be best to check the manufacturer’s recommendations and follow suit. If your sofa is however of fabric upholstery, most sofa fabrics come with care labels, with a lot of ‘do not’ sigmas. The best way which is also the wisest would be to follow the are labels, if washing, dry cleaning and scrubbing are out, then the best would be to vacuum that sofa. You could also hire professional sofa cleaners to do it for you.

No wonder it is so easy to abuse these couches, the things we go through to acquire them, they will never understand.
