 Maintenance Task:  Vacuum and fluff upholstered furniture

 
       
    How do you vacuum and fluff upholstered furniture?  

 

 

Upholstered furniture should be vacuumed strongly on a regular basis, and pillows and cushions should be routinely flipped over and "fluffed" back to their original shapes.

 
       
    Why is it important to vacuum and fluff upholstered furniture?  

 

 

Dirt and dust on upholstered furniture acts as an abrasive and can accelerate the wearing of upholstered furniture.  Flipping and fluffing cushions and pillows helps to extend their useful lives.

 
       
    How often should you vacuum and fluff upholstered furniture?  
    Perform at least once per year (March).  

 

 

 

   
    How does Home-Wizard rate the costs and benefits for this task?  
    The cost of this task is relatively low from an investment of time standpoint.  It is a relatively easy task to do.  An upholstery attachment for your vacuum cleaner is helpful for getting out dirt and dust from deep between cushions.  
         
    The benefits of this task is modest.  It helps to extend the useful life of your upholstered furniture.  
       
    Overall Home-Wizard benefit-versus-cost rating (one 'hat' = low and four 'hats' = high)
