Suede is a great material for a couch as it is very flexible and comfortable. Over time however, suede can become heavily soiled as the fibres of the fabric hold dirt very well. The following will let you know not only how to keep a suede couch clean, but also how to clean it if it does get heavily soiled.
How To Prevent Your Suede Couch Becoming Dirty
You can have professionals apply a coating to you suede couch that will actually help to prevent it from getting dirty. You can also buy protection products and apply the yourself. These coatings will help to repel any liquid spilled on the couch and prevent dirt from getting deep into the fibres which makes for some tough cleaning and a lot of elbow grease.
How to Clean Spot Stains on Your Suede Couch
If any liquid is spilled on your couch, soak up the excess liquid with a towel or paper towel. Once the excess fluid has been soaked up, use a stain remover spray or suede cleaning product to clean any staining that may occur. Always check these stain removers on an inconspicuous area first to ensure that they don’t damage your lounge. Apply the stain remover product to the area, scrub with a damp cloth and then pat dry with a
towel or paper towel. The same method can be used for small dirt, sauce or any other stains. Just wipe the excess away first and then use a fabric stain removing product.

Most carpet dry cleaning companies will also offer upholstery cleaning options. This can be the best way to bring your dirty old lounge back to its former glory. The stains will be removed and your suede couch will be left looking feeling and smelling clean. It is almost like having a brand new couch!
