If something spills on your sofa, it's important to clean it immediately. Allowing stains to set in the fabric means they may become virtually impossible to clean. It will always vary depending on the fabric and the material that has soiled it, but if you don't take care of it right away, you run the risk of ruining it for good.
If you´re like most people, your sofa probably gets a lot of action, and as a result, it can get pretty dirty. Even if it doesn‘t look dirty, it‘s probably covered in dust particles, sloughed-off skin cells, bits of food, and who knows what else. No matter how clean you are your sofa will get dirty, so clean it regularly to extend its life.
Any parent knows that trying to keep kids from sitting on the wide arms of a couch is a losing battle. The arms hold up fine, even with the wear, tear, and weight of rambunctious family members, friends, and pets. A year later, they still look brand new. The seat cushions are made of memory foam which will mold itself to the shape of your body for extra comfort and support. After a year of use, the Kivik sofas have proved to be as comfortable as they seemed in the IKEA showroom. The fabric is easy to remove and machine washable. The fabric that we chose was a nubby weave, which has probably helped the sofa´ s staying power because the fabric still looks new.
