Sofa Shield Covers – Protection for Your Sofa!
by MARTIN OOI
A sofa is usually the first things you get when buying a new home and it usually is one of the most expensive items as well, when shopping for furniture. Depending on the fabric and material, a sofa set can easily cost anywhere between RM 1,000 – RM 5,000 and above! Setting the price a side, a sofa may have a value much higher than its price – and we’re talking about sentimental value here folks.
No matter how much it pains us, the hard truth is that sofas are very susceptible to damage, wear and tear, staining, stubbing and more! As we constantly lay ourselves down on our beloved sofas for our cuddle up Saturday Movie Night, lazy afternoon naps or pet snuggling sessions, it is going to take a toll on the fabric itself. Over time, your once glamorous sofa is going to look down in the dumps, although there are many options out there to restore your sofa to its former glory. We recommend the more subtle approach of prevention, just to help you save a few bucks.
For those of you who are still puzzled by what a sofa shield cover is, here are some simple explanations to have it better explained.
What is it?
A sofa shield cover, as its name suggests is an outer layer of fabric which is usually made out of thick and durable materials. Its sole purpose is to protect the surface of your sofa from scratches, spills, stains, burns and more. Imagine having a dog or a cat at home, a lot of time our furry friends would prefer to come up to us when we are on the sofa, this results in them clawing around with their paws until they are comfortable enough to settle down. Most of the time, this is to the expense of ugly claw marks and scratches.
Why should you use it?
With a sofa shield cover, you can minimize the surface area in which your pet’s claws come in contact with. Saving you a ton of hassle and money as it is a far cheaper alternative than getting your whole sofa refurbished and the shield covers are usually washable, thus making it a good protection investment for many years to come.
How do you use it?
As complicated as it sounds, a sofa shield cover is not a sci-fi inspired force field needing a team of highly skilled technicians to operate. On the contrary, it requires little skill to install and usually uses a slip on mechanism by using the spacing between your sofas as an anchor point. No need for long explanations here!
Where can you get them?
Sofa Shield Covers have become quite a common accessory where you can get them practically anywhere. If you prefer to feel and visit a physical shop before making a purchase, they are readily available at any furniture or fabric store. But if you’re an avid online shopper, they are also available through online stores as well, making them an easily accessible accessory for your sofa.
