How Often Can Sofa Covers Be Washed?

How often can sofa covers be washed?

As sofa cover enthusiasts at Furnitureful, we explored and discovered that the answer is dependent on a variety of things. So, this blog is divided into sections to help you comprehend all of the factors we considered in order to answer how often sofa covers can be washed.


If you or a member of your family suffers from allergies, you must exercise extra caution when cleaning your home. The sofa is one of those places where dust and mites can readily gather. If you've got allergies, we recommend that you have a leather cover for your sofa.

You may avoid dust and mites by cleaning it twice a week with a moist cloth.

If you have pets, I'm sure you're used to dealing with pet hair in your home. Vacuuming your sofa cover once a week will help keep it clean. I'm confident that if you do this, both you and your cat will be happier. You may also wash the covers in the washing machine on a regular basis to ensure that they are totally clean.


If you enjoy decorating as much as we do at Furnitureful, I'm sure you fantasize about altering your decorations seasonally. In that scenario, having multiple sofa covers in your home is the greatest method to replace it quickly and easily. Change the colour and fabric of your sofa, add a few new cushions, and your entire living room will appear completely different.


As a result, we can fairly say that washing the covers every 3-6 months, as a rough guideline, is the ideal method to have a clean, germ-free, and beautiful sofa. It's unrealistic to wash them every month or so, but if dirt accumulates for too long, it'll be difficult to clean. As a result, it's also a good idea to conduct some weekly maintenance duties like vacuuming to keep pet hair, mites, and dust at bay.
