Before starting with the various aspects of cleaning a microfiber couch, you must have a basic idea about microfiber codes. All you have to do is to check the tag of the microfiber furniture, for the code. These tags have alphabets that denote the cleaning method. If the tag is with the alphabet 'W', then it means that you can use water-based cleaning solutions. If it is 'S', then, you have to use solvent-based cleaners only. If it is 'S-W', you may use any of the water-based or solvent-based cleaners. Some of these tags have alphabet 'X' on them and this denotes that you should not use any cleaning solution on such microfiber furniture. In such cases, vacuuming can be done or you may use dry products for cleaning. Even though, you know that a particular code stands for a certain form of cleaning, there are still chances that you spoil the couch, if you do not clean the upholstery, in a proper way. Microfiber upholstery repels water, but it may absorb moisture (in large amounts), if the water is not removed properly and quickly. As a result, the fabric may develop water rings. The same applies to oil and other liquids.
Take a soft cloth and buff the surface. Now take a finishing compound and spray it evenly over the surface. These finishes are ready to use and come in spray bottles. Spraying it is the best way of application so as to get an even look. Now, the job is done!
Perhaps the biggest reason you should consider a leather sofa for your home is for the natural warmth it offers. There is a tactile appeal with leather that is really second to none. If you have ever sat on a piece of furniture covered in leather you know what I am talking about. The smooth, soft feel is comforting and warm to the touch. There is just something about it that makes you feel like you are in the lap of luxury. Nothing scratchy, and no irritating feel.
No matter what kind of damage your leather sofa has sustained, the first thing that needs to be done is to prepare the surface. The leather used for manufacturing the sofa has a protective coating on its surface in order to make it last longer. Preparation work mainly involves removal of this coat and cleaning the dirt and grime from the leather. For this purpose, use the cleaning solution which you get in the kit, to remove the dirt and coat. Otherwise, you can use fine sandpaper to clean the leather coat. Dip a cotton ball in alcohol and rub it on the sanded area with a gentle hand. The damaged edges of the leather often tend to get curled up in the outward direction. These edges have to be trimmed with a pair of scissors to get a smooth finish at the end.
