L-Shape Sofa Cleaning Tips

We all love our L-shaped couches, but let’s be honest: they can get dirty pretty easily. So here are some tips for how to keep your L-shaped couch clean and comfortable for years to come:

Vacuum The Sofa Weekly With Upholstery Attachment

This will help to keep dust and dirt from building up on your couch, which can cause stains over time. Make sure to turn off your vacuum before starting so that you don’t damage it by sucking in any loose strings or material from the cushions.

Use an upholstery attachment to carefully vacuum around each cushion, paying special attention to where they meet at seams (you can use a soft brush attachment here). Don’t forget about under-couch areas like where legs meet arms – these often get overlooked but they’re just as important!

Spot Clean Stains With A Dry-Cleaning Solvent

Don’t use dry-cleaning solvent on a regular basis. Since it’s designed to remove oil and grease, it can deteriorate the fabric of your furniture over time, especially if you’re using it on leather or suede. If you do need to spot clean stains with a dry-cleaning solvent, use only as much of the product as necessary–a little goes a long way!

Spot clean stains with a damp cloth or sponge only as needed. To remove any surface dirt from your sofa, simply wipe down its surface with warm water and mild detergent (like dish soap). Then pat dry with an absorbent towel before letting it air out completely before resuming normal activities in your home (or office).

Use A Vacuum To Remove Any Dirt Or Dust Under

To get under, on top of and all around your L-shaped Sofa, use a vacuum with a soft brush attachment. Be careful not to damage the fabric with the vacuum. If you are using a beater bar attachment, do not use too much force as this could cause damage to your furniture or carpeting underneath it.

Do not use this method if there are delicate fabrics nearby such as curtains or upholstery that may tear from the suction power produced by these attachments. If you have a L-shaped couch that is made from fabric, use a damp cloth to wipe down the surface. This will help to remove any dust or dirt that may be on the couch’s surface.

Make Sure You Vacuum Up Any Crumbs That Have Accumulated

The next step is to vacuum up any crumbs that have accumulated in the crevices between cushions and around the base of the sofa. This can be done with a crevice tool if you have one, or just by getting down on your hands and knees and reaching as far into those nooks and crannies as possible. You might also want to use a small brush attachment if there’s fur or hair stuck in there — just be careful not to damage any fabric!

If your couch is made of leather, use a damp cloth and gently wipe away any dirt or dust. Be careful not to get the leather too wet or it may stain. You can also use a soft brush attachment on the vacuum if you have one in order to remove any carpet fibers that may have stuck to your couch. If you want to get really thorough, you can also vacuum the cushions themselves. Just be careful not to get any creases in them while you’re doing so! If your sofa has pillows, it’s a good idea to take those off and wash them separately.

Get Out Your Fabric Brush And Clean The Surface Of Your Sofa Gently

If you have a fabric brush, use it to remove any dirt or dust from the surface of your couch. You can also use a vacuum with a crevice tool (or even just your hand) if you don’t have access to a fabric brush. If you have a couch that has been covered in fabric, it’s a good idea to use a damp cloth to wipe away any dust or dirt that may have accumulated on the surface.

If your sofa is made of wood, simply wipe it clean with a dry rag.. Use an upholstery cleaner to remove stains and odors If your sofa has any stains or odors, this step is especially important! You can purchase an upholstery cleaner from most hardware stores.


  • If you have an L-shaped sofa, it’s important to keep it clean and tidy.
  • Cleaning your L-shaped sofa is easy if you follow these five tips:
  • Use the right cleaning products. Make sure that you’re using a product that is safe for up to three different types of fabric (such as leather or microfiber). You also need a damp cloth that won’t scratch any surfaces on your furniture piece if they are made from wood or metal.
  • Use the right method for each type of surface on your couch–for example, don’t use water when cleaning leather because it may ruin the material! Instead, use a soft brush like those found in our Deep Cleaning Kit ($9) which comes with several attachments for different types of fabrics so you can easily remove stains without causing damage.


After you’ve finished cleaning your L-shaped sofa, you may want to give it a fresh coat of paint. This will help keep it looking like new for years to come!
