How often should I change my sofa?
The life of a sofa depends very much on usage. Some use it for a decade and can’t wait for it to start sagging so that it can be replaced; however, others may find it is time to change a sofa after only a few years or less. If you notice the sofa seats are sagging and no longer providing adequate support, the frame is breaking down or squeaking, or the fabric has become stained and worn, then it is time for you to purchase a new sofa.
How can I make my sofa last longer?
If you are concerned about your sofa’s condition and want to maintain its quality, here are some tips to keep in mind:
- Don’t throw your weight onto it.
- Clean any spills immediately.
- Avoid eating or drinking on the sofa.
- Keep leather sofa away from heat.
- Vacuum the sofa regularly using the appropriate attachment tool
Why shouldn’t I sleep on my sofa?
Sleeping regularly on the sofa can result in wear and tear. Depending on the height and weight of the sleeper and their sleeping position, certain parts of the couch could be affected more than the others. If you are sleeping on a fabric-covered sofa, you may be required to clean it more often, which can lead to a reduced lifespan for the furniture.
