Easy Steps to Cleaning ULC Upholstery

“Wash your hands! Don’t touch your face!” We hear that at every turn, and for good reason. We are cleaning fiends right now. Again, for good reason. We need to keep our hands clean, not touch our face, and keep the surfaces of our counters and furniture clean. This includes upholstered furniture. From wood and laminate to metal and steel, University Loft has made it simple to keep clean. We have several blogs with information to help you avoid improper cleaning of these surfaces.

Cleaning Stains without Removing the Fabric

Upholstery shampoo or liquid soap will work wonders for removing stains.

  1. Apply a small amount of soap to a wet cloth
  2. Gently rub the affected area.
  3. Once the stain is removed, dampen a separate clean towel and remove any excess soap.
  4. Use a dry cloth to remove the extra moisture

Removing the Fabric

You will need a ½ inch socket, 7/16-inch socket, and a drill with attachment or socket

  1. Remove the feet from the furniture
  2. Remove the screws
  3. The furniture pieces come off easily
  4. Because the upholstery is made using Velcro® Technology, it detaches from the cushion simply. It is now ready for a thorough cleaning. However, if you need to repair a rip or replace the whole thing, you can do so without having to buy all new furniture.
