For fabric based furniture, like chairs and sofas, proper care can keep them looking better for longer.

When you vacuum your house – vacuum fabric furniture too. The build up of dust and dirt on your furniture will create markings and discolouration.

Rotate cushions on sofas and mattresses on beds to get an even wear of the fabric.

Choosing fabrics that are removable and machine washable will also mean you can clean it properly. If they aren’t removable, you may be able to steam clean them using a carpet cleaner – but check the manufacturers specifications first.

Airing cushions will keep them fresh and remove any stale smells.
