The Best Value For Carpet,Tile & Air Duct Cleaning!
Couch pillows, especially ones used every day, attract dirt, bacteria, dust, mold and mites. Even decorative throw pillows are susceptible; so they need to be cleaned on a regular basis, too. Couch pillows covered in delicate material, such as silk, must be professionally dry-cleaned. Most other couch pillows can be washed in a machine or cleaned by hand, even ones that don’t have removable covers. Consult the manufacturer’s cleaning directions before attempting to clean any pillows.
Even if pillows have removable covers, they may not be suitable for hand or machine washing. Some covers, especially leather and silk, should always be cleaned professionally, even if only the trim is made out of those materials.
Remove the fabric cover.
Pre-treat heavily stained or soiled areas on the cover with a pre-wash cleaning spray or gently dab the stain with a damp sponge and mild detergent.
