Caring for you Microfiber Couch or Loveseat

Microsuede fabric has a unique texture that accentuates a color's depth and contrast, making it an excellent upholstery choice for furniture. The superior stain-resistance of a microfiber fabric, such as microsuede, means that your sofa and loveseat set will be able to withstand the rigors of daily use by active kids and pets. But to keep your micros's couch or loveseat looking its best, some simple care is required.


  1. Keep it clean. Keep crumbs, dust and dirt off the couch. Vacuuming regularly with a soft-brush attachment will make this quick and easy. How often you need to do this will vary, but it is a good idea to do it every time you vacuum the room the furniture is in.
  2. Clean spills immediately. Microsuede furniture is stain-resistant, so small spills will bead-up instead of soaking into the fabric. This gives you the chance to get some paper towels and soak up the spill before it stains. Soak up as much moisture as possible, including in the cracks between cushions. Wait until the material has dried before sitting on it.
  3. Occasionally, deep-clean your sofa. Microfiber sofas, if cared for, will stay very clean. Occasionally, they will still need a deep cleaning to remove any build-up of dirt and oils. Follow manufacturer's instructions if they are available. Always apply cleaning products an inconspicuous area of the sofa first to test your methods and the color-fastness of the material before cleaning your entire sofa. Microfiber furniture cleaning products make deep-cleaning your sofa easy and safe.
  4. Brush your sofa occasionally. Sometimes after cleaning or if the microfiber material gets soaked, the material can feel a little stiff. This is because the tiny fibers become entangled. Brushing your microfiber couch with a fine-toothed comb will revive the fabric.


Try not to let people sit on your microfiber furniture if they have been sweating heavily. This can leave salt stains that can be difficult to get out of your couch or loveseat.
