A velvet sofa
can look opulent and elegant. To maintain its lustrous appearance, clean it regularly. Vacuuming or brushing the couch with a soft brush helps remove dust and other particles. Regular steaming can also keep the velvet fabric looking fresh. Steaming revives the rich colour and fluffs up the fibres. You can also clean spills using a warm, damp sponge and avoid using harsh chemicals or water.
Velvet fabric is delicate and requires regular brushing. Weekly brushing will help maintain its sheen and uniform appearance. However, you should avoid using a vacuum cleaner directly on the velvet fabric as it may dull the sheen and reduce the pile. Another way to keep your sofa velvet fabric looking fresh is to use a steam cleaner.
A velvet sofa looks great with a lot of pillows. Be sure to choose pillows with a texture that can stand up to the richness of the fabric. Opt for pillows in high-quality, intricately patterned materials. For a more elegant look, use contrasting colors on pillows. If you have a dark-hued sofa, add a few pale pillows to lighten its look.
If you have a stain on your sofa velvet fabric, you can use the recommended cleaning solvent to remove it. If the stain is small, you can dab the affected area with a cloth or a blotting motion. Make sure not to rub too hard as this can cause the pile to lift. The durability of velvet depends on the fiber used and the density of the pile. A high-quality velvet should have a low-pile and dense-pile.
