Having a home cinema is great. Keeping it clean is not as great. Not everyone is fond of doing the cleaning. And sometimes, you do not have time for it. But you cannot avoid things to happen. Popcorn smudge on leather chairs or soda spills on fabric ones can give you a headache. Maintaining the appearance of your home cinema seating is also important. Here are some tips you should check out.
The vacuum is better than soap
Do not reach for the soap if you have messy seats. It is better to use the vacuum first. Washing the seats might push the dirt in or around. A lot of dirt, hair, and other stuff on your seats are only on the surface. Vacuuming first will clean up anything on the surface. Then you can proceed with washing it.
Soda for soda spills
Soda spills are common to home cinema seats. A great solution to that is another kind of soda. Bicarbonate of soda is one of the best ways to clean upholstery. After you vacuum the seats, you can sprinkle bicarbonate of soda on the affected areas. Leave it for about half an hour and it will do its thing. Vacuum the surface again to clean up the bicarbonate of soda. The bicarbonate of soda neutralizes any lingering odors in the seat. It also exfoliates the seats with sticky messes.
Check the labels
Each home cinema seating is different. The best cleaning method for one seating might be harmful to other seating. Check the label of your seats. The manufacturer often includes advice on cleaning. This will help you ensure that you do not ruin the seat when you plan to clean it.
Check the label of your seat and confirm if steam cleaning is safe for your seat. Then put hydrogen peroxide on the dirty areas. Leave it for about 10 minutes before you use the steam cleaner. These cleaners have adjustable heads. You can find the kind of cloth and brush that is best for your exact fabric. Scrub all the affected areas. Then let the seats dry. This will let your seats look, feel, and smell as good as new.
You should make sure that you do regular maintenance to extend the life of your home cinema seating. Proper maintenance will cost less than buying new seats. Routine checking of your home cinema seating will let you spot minor issues. Take care of these before it gets worse. Major issues may be more expensive to take care of and they can cause more trouble.
Sometimes, it is difficult to keep your home cinema seats clean or you have no time for it. You can then ask professionals to help you. They specialize in cleaning home cinema seats.
