How To Preserve Your Modern Sofa For Many Years

Posted by Eloy on Feb 15th 2021

Of all the advice you can receive, some are probably more timely and valuable than others, especially taking into account the perspective of each decorator or the experience of each user who has a suggestion to give you.

However, something that's infallible in almost all cases is that the modern sofa that you choose for your layout will automatically become one of the main pieces of the place, which will give identity and a visible face to the area's decorating style.

In fact, for many specialists, the decorating style is given mainly by the type of sofa that's chosen, while everything else has a secondary role, taking into account that, also, the sofa is almost always the automatic focal point of any living room, and almost always the most used piece of furniture.

The most typical thing is that your guests get the first great impression from the midcentury sofa they find in the place. For all that and more, this very useful and special object deserves all the care you can give it to preserve it for as long as possible.

Cleaning and Maintenance: The Keys To Prevalence

There's a suitable method for each type of sofa, depending on the upholstery, finishes, and materials with which it was made. Leather sofas, for example, require very different care than sofas with fabric upholstery, and to be able to clean them correctly there are specialized products on the market, formulated for this purpose, which reduces the risks of damage or accelerated deterioration.

Some tried-and-true cleaning tools, such as vacuum cleaners, can be effective and convenient in any case, especially when it comes to removing dust and volatile dirt trapped in pieces upholstered in fabric or highly porous cushions. People who use soap or chemicals without being sure whether they are appropriate for certain materials are responsible to verify their suitability before using them.

Remember that some other agents can be very harmful and sometimes go unnoticed, such as environmental factors (direct sunlight, humidity, mold, excess dust) and even the presence of pets, especially if they have sharp claws that could cause irreversible damage to your sofa's materials.

If you have a modern sectional and you've installed it next to a window to make the most of the living room's corner, make sure you can protect it well if direct sunlight enters through the window since the ultraviolet rays, constantly projected on a surface, ends up cracking and wearing it quickly. Almost always, drawing the curtains is enough, but everything will depend on the characteristics of each environment.

The best sofas are made to last, sometimes for generations, and many of them become highly prized family heirlooms that appear in typical family photos and are part of all kinds of memorable moments.

Never forget that the integrity of your furniture pieces and the way you can preserve them are also a fundamental aspect of your decorating style and, at the same time, an intrinsic functional aspect of any space that's worth admiring and inhabiting.
