5 Scenarios When You Should Choose a Heavy-Duty Couch Cover – MiracleSofa


Sofas are expensive, and they're not just for sitting. They serve as a focal point in any living room or den. Covering the couch with the right type of furniture protector can protect it from spills, pet hair, dirt, dust mites, and other allergens that can accumulate over time.

But there are many scenarios when heavy-duty sofa covers work better than the rest.

This article will go over five scenarios that make sense for a couch owner to invest in a high-quality couch cover over traditionally flimsy or cheap sofa cover solutions.

You see, we believe that every sofa should have a sofa cover, but there are some instances where premium couch covers work much better than the rest.

Protect Your Couch Fabric

Picture this: You finally splurge and get yourself that brand new couch that you have been dreaming about. Everything is perfect, and your den looks so cozy and inviting with the new sofa sitting there.

Seriously, you could spend all day sprawled out on it! And you are pretty sure all your guests will compliment you on your overall good taste.

- You may be looking for an easy way to protect the fabric on your couch from spills or stains.

- You might have pets at home that shed and leave hair all over everything. 

- You might have kids running around who love playing in the living room but can't keep their hands off the sofa...or other things.

Whatever your reason is, there's always a good reason to invest in durable couch covers.

1.) Shield it from Pets

Let's assume for a bit that you're one of those people who just can't keep your sofa clean and neat because of the rowdy pets you love. It makes sense for you to invest in higher quality furniture covers over buying other cheap couch covers.

Inferior quality products only last a few weeks before becoming torn, stained, or worn out.Whatever the case may be. It's not like you are living with an army of goblins here!

Who needs to spend money on something that won't last? Not you!

So never again will you have to worry about your dog shedding hair all over your new sofa, wedging dirt between the holes in some cheaply made throw cover. 

Time is money, after all. - And if there ever was such thing as peace of mind in this world, then it surely comes from investing wisely. Choose a pet-specific couch cover and enjoy the benefits immediately!

2.) Guard it Against Kids

We all know that the house gets messy if you have kids, especially toddlers! That's pretty much an inescapable fact. It's easy to imagine what will happen to your new couch if you don't invest in thicker machine washable sofa covers.

The fact of the matter is that kids do a lot of damage to everything they come in contact with, at no fault of their own. I mean, it's difficult enough getting kids to stop drawing on the walls, so imagine having to keep an eye on them to stop them doodling on the sofa too.

And what's to say they won't get ketchup or juice stains on the fabric?

Fortunately, as children grow up, they'll learn to value your things. Still, until then, having multiple heavy-duty sofa covers can prevent a ton of damage to your expensive furniture.

3.) Make Your Sofa Cover Spill-Resistant

Even if you don't have kids in your house, spill-resistant sofa covers work wonders when it comes to protecting your furniture from all sorts of spills. If you aren't quick enough, all those accidental spills and stains can leave lasting marks!

Our water-resistant couch covers give you extra time to wipe away messes before they become permanent. If you are prone to spills or have spill-mongers running around the house, consider investing in a spill-resistant sofa cover.

After cleaning up your first mess, you'll be happy you did.

4.) Protect it Against Dust and Micro-Particles

Just because you can't easily see them, it doesn't mean that micro-particles and dust haven't penetrated your sofa cover. Cheaply made sofa covers do their part to shield your sofa from dirt. Still, over time, dust will eventually settle and potentially scratch up your couch's top layer. This problem is especially true for leather sofas.

While dust will accumulate no matter what cover you use, a premium sofa cover will prevent damage from these particles as they form layers underneath. Since fewer particles make it through, less accumulate between wash cycles, and your couch is better protected!

5.) Ensure Your Couch Cover is Machine-Washable

Like I mentioned above, accidental spills, dirt, and stains happen over time. So, it is essential to make sure your sofa cover can withstand a lot of washing cycles.

The good news is that spill-resistant, machine-washable sofa slipcovers are conveniently available at MiracleSofa.

Simply follow this 5-step process to make your sofa cover last:

1. Remove the existing sofa cover

2. Use a vacuum to remove any dust or micro-debris from the exposed sofa seat cushions.

3. Throw the sofa cover in the washing machine by itself and use a gentle cycle.

4. Stretch a replacement sofa cover on your exposed couch.

5. Allow the old sofa cover to air-dry, or choose a cooler dry function on your dryer.

Well, that wraps up our discussion on when you should use heavy-duty couch covers. Not only can this help protect the fabric from wear and tear, but they also keep it clean and free of pet hair, micro-particles, or food stains!

The key is to match the fit with your couch's measurements before purchasing one, though, because you may need more than one piece to keep your furniture covered. Not only will an ill-fitting slipcover do a lousy job at protecting its original material underneath, but it might not stay in place, even if you think it is anti-slip or slip-resistant. Ensuring your sofa cover fits correctly is one of the best ways to protect your couch and make it last for years to come.
