Sofa cushions are a great way to make your sofa comfortable, but proper maintenance is required to keep them in good condition.  Sofa cushions are often made of soft foam, which can break down over time and leave you with an uncomfortable seat.

So how do you maintain your sofa cushions? We have the answers for you!

Here are some tips on how to maintain your sofa cushions:

Regularly flip the cushion over. This will ensure that the weight of your body is evenly distributed across all sides of the cushion, which prevents it from breaking down faster on one side than another.

If you have kids or pets, protect your cushions by covering them with a slipcover. This will prevent stains and spills from ruining their appearance or comfort level.

Place a throw pillow over each corner of the seat so there’s less chance you’ll sit directly on top where damage could occur more easily due to concentrated pressure points created when using just standard backrests without extra padding at these locations such as arm rests would provide.

Clean Them Regularly

These days, many sofas and armchairs have removable covers that can be washed in a machine. Make sure you check the labels of your sofa before putting them in the washing machine. It may say dry clean only, or that they need a certain type of detergent.

If you don’t have washable covers like this, then invest in some suitable cleaning products such as fabric cleaner and a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment. Then clean them regularly! This will help prevent stains from setting into the fabric too much.

Cushion Maintenance

To maintain your cushions, you need to keep them clean and fluffed. An easy way to keep them clean is by placing a plastic cover over the cushions. This can help prevent stains and other damage from happening, but it can also trap in moisture and make it more difficult for the cushions to breath.

Many people believe that you should wash their covers in order to keep them fresh and clean. While this may work for some materials, others may shrink or fade after going through a washing machine cycle. If you do want to wash your covers, you should check with your manufacturer first.
