Important Decisions When Cleaning a Suite or Settee

w/e 30/04/18

Take a look at our helpful hints videos cleaning a Kitchen Chair as Well:
When you want to clean a chair or suite there are various important thoughts to keep in mind.
  1. Are the covers removable ?
  2. Do you want to clean it in your home?

If the covers are removable then you do have the option of either dry cleaning them or washing them yourself. Look at the care label (see Care Labels) and make sure you follow a method of cleaning recommended by the manufacturer. If the washing instructions give you options then consider the following:

  • If your drapes (curtains) match your suite then dry cleaning is preferred.
  • If you can choose both methods and the fabric has a printed pattern then washing could remove the glaze on the surface, lightening the covers a shade or two.
  • If the covers are tight they will almost certainly get tighter after cleaning  but washing will cause slightly more natural shrinkage than dry cleaning.

If you want, or need,  to clean the suite yourself or if the covers aren't removable then your only real choice is to wet clean. Your best course will be to rent a carpet cleaning machine with a hand too, but you can get away with a wet-and-dry vacuum if it has very good suction and a hand tool. Your main problem will be removing any liquid you put on the chairs so if you're going to clean frequently then consider buying a professional cleaning machine.

To Explain;

All suites have padding and it's this padding that causes the problems. If it gets too wet then you can damage your suite because:

  1. Drying the chairs will prove difficult, which could lead to mildew and mold in the suite.
  2. Any dirt that's sunk into the padding over time may be wicked to the surface of the fabric as it dries, making the suite look even dirtier than when you started.

Due to the wicking factor you should treat any stains immediately before you clean that specific area. Add the minimum amount of water on to the suite and then remove the maximum amount of water possible before finishing. Repeat the whole process if you want to achieve better results as opposed to simply adding more and more liquid and soap in an effort to get a better job..
