1.1 Vacuum the Couch

Connect the VK-4 nozzle to the vacuum. Push the button to start at 2000 RPM. Slide the nozzle over the fabric of the couch gently. Tight corners should be cleaned by the edge cleaner tool.

After 5 minutes, inspect the filter bag. If the HEPA filter (UEPA) is full, then proceed to empty it. Continue doing the same until the couch appears clean.

1.2 Clean Wooden or Metal Surfaces

Clean it with the CL-3 cleaner and a microfiber cloth. Rub a little quantity of the preparation on the wooden surface. Circulate the cloth in circles with a little pressure.

Check for scratch or stain. For metal, use MD-5 polish. It is recommended to rub along with the grain so as not to harm the material. Finally, wipe the surface with a dry cloth to give it that shining look.

2. Understanding Your Couch Fabric!

2.1 Determine the Fabric Type

Check for FID-1 code on the label. This code represents the material used in making the fabric. Organic fabrics such as cotton require different treatment.

Blends, for instance, are 70 percent polyester and 30 percent cotton incorporate characteristics. Being aware of fabric types, assists in selecting the right cleaning method.

2.2 Reading Manufacturer's Tags

Look for the MFT-2 tag beneath the cushions. These tags indicate cleaning instructions. “W” stands for water-based cleaner. “S” means solvent-based cleaner.

A “WS” code means that both are safe. The “X” means vacuum only. You should always adhere to these codes to prevent damage.

3. Odor and Pest Control!

3.1 Remove Odors

Pour a layer of baking soda over the seat. Let it sit for 20 minutes. Baking soda neutralizes bad odors. Clean with a vacuum cleaner that has an ODF-3 filter. After vacuuming, spray fabric freshener. If necessary, repeat the above procedures for strong odor sources.

3.2 Spray Bug Spray on Second Hand Upholstery

Search for pests such as bed bugs. Spray the whole couch with BGT-4 spray. Concentrate on seams and folds. These areas hide bugs. Allow the spray to dry for about 30 minutes.

Take a second check for pests after the area has dried. If bugs are still there, spray again. Application should always be done in a well-ventilated room.

4. Dealing with Spills and Stains!
