How to Care for a Velvet Sofa | Delcor’s Expert Care Guide

A velvet sofa adds a touch of luxury and sophistication to any living space. However, the unique texture and appearance of velvet requires specific care to maintain its elegance. Velvet, with its distinctively soft and plush feel, can be made from various fibres, each with different care requirements. Recognising the delicate nature of velvet is key to caring for it properly, preserving its texture and colour vibrancy. Renowned for our luxury velvet sofas, follow our expert guide on how to keep your velvet looking its best.

  1. Regular Cleaning and Maintenance

The first step to caring for your velvet sofa is regular cleaning and maintenance in order to ensure surface dirt does not get embedded in the fabric. Regular dusting and gentle vacuuming is a great way to care for your velvet sofa.

  1. Dealing with Spills and Stains on a Velvet Sofa

If your velvet sofa has a stain or something has been spilled, address spills and stains promptly. Make sure to avoid rubbing, as this can damage the velvet’s pile.

  1. Rotate Your Velvet Sofa’s Cushions 

Regularly rotate and fluff your sofa cushions to ensure even wear and maintain the sofa’s shape and comfort.

  1. Avoid Pressure Marks Forming

Be mindful of leaving any heavy objects on your sofa, as velvet can develop pressure marks or crushing.

It is best to consult a professional upholstery cleaner experienced in handling velvet when it comes to deep cleaning or addressing significant stains on your velvet sofa. You may also consider periodic professional cleaning, to rejuvenate the fabric and extend the life of your velvet sofa.
