How Do I Prevent My Couch From Fading?

Have you just gotten a new piece of upholstered furniture this spring or summer? If so, a key component of protecting and caring for it is taking the necessary steps to prevent your new piece of furniture from fading. While we all love the sun and enjoy the UVs in the summer, your couch and other upholstered furniture do not. Sunlight and UV rays can negatively affect furniture and cause fading over time. In order to help you prevent fading and keep your upholstered furniture looking as good as new, the upholstery experts at ECS Carpet Cleaners have come up with a complete guide to making your furniture look better than ever before this summer. 


Top Tips For Keeping Your Upholstery Fade-Free This Summer:


Move Your Furniture Away From The Window Or Door:

One of the easiest ways to keep your furniture fade-free is by moving it away from any possible harsh natural light source. For example, if your upholstery is in an area that receives a large amount of natural light from large windows, consider moving it to somewhere else that does not receive such large amounts of light. This includes finding a shady area away from a balcony, door, or window.


Keep Your Blinds Closed:

Another easy way to reduce the risk of fading on your furniture is to close your blinds. Doing so prevents harmful UV rays from penetrating your couch. If you notice that you are still getting large amounts of sunlight when you close your blinds, consider adding curtains. Curtains that are excellent in blocking sunlight and also look great can give you the benefit of blocking the light and also make your home look better than ever before!


Add A UV Blocker To Your Window:

If you are looking for a solution to block UV light from hitting your furniture without having to move or close your blinds, adding a UV-blocking tint to your windows is a fantastic idea. This film allows you to still enjoy the wonderful natural light without the negative downside of fading. UV-blocking film is easy to install and can prove to be beneficial for your energy bill as well!
