Features of a Petite Recliner

No matter what size, recliners have three basic features in common. They all include a chair-like sitting surface that moves up and down at the touch of a button on the hand control. The back part of the chair also goes back to different degrees for personalized comfort and support needs as well as being able to lean against it or not.

Petite recliners also include what is called a “lumbar system,” which are lower back cushions that provide extra support for your spine once you lean against the chair.

The lumbar pad will either be made of foam or inflatable air cells and can be adjusted to what feels best for your needs. Some recliners also have what is called a “lounge position,” which is to say that they can recline all the way back and allow you to fully lie down.


Petite Recliner Types

There are many different types of recliners on the market today from what can be described as a traditional style chair to what is called a “lounge” chair.

Traditional Petite Style Recliners: These are what many people think of when they hear the word “recliner” – chairs that can be reclined to various degrees and have armrests for support. This type of chair is great if you want something with some back support or what is known as “lumbar support,” the part of a chair that supports your lower back.

Petite Lounge Style Recliners: These are what many people think of when they hear the word “recliner.” They can recline to various degrees and have armrests for support, but what sets them apart is that they are much more like what you might think of as a couch.

Advantages of Owning a Petite Recliner

You will be able to get what you need in a chair.

It’s easy and comfortable with this big piece of furniture.

Your back, neck, joints, muscles, and spine will thank you for the rest. An average person spends about 90% of their time sitting so they must have something comfortable to sit in.

You will be able to adjust the position of your recliner, which can make it easier for seniors and those with mobility issues to get up again if they want.


Disadvantages of Owning a Petite Recliner

The cost may not justify what you’re getting out of it.

You’ll need a larger space for the recliner, so if you have limited space in your home or office this may not be what you’re looking for.

It’s heavy to move around and takes up more room than what it seems like at first glance.

They are often expensive because of their weight and size.


How to Deep Clean a Petite Recliner

Every once in a while you may need to clean your recliner, but what method should you use? You will want to find what’s the best way for what type of fabric it is made out of.

Wool: Wool often needs dry cleaning because water can make it shrink and become brittle over time. If that seems like what you need to do, just make sure the dry cleaner knows what they’re doing.

Leather: Leather is often very durable and easy to clean so it will be easier than wool to get a deep cleaning without any problems. The best way to go about this would be with soap and water though anything that can’t damage leather will work.

Fabric: Fabric is what your recliner may be made out of if it’s not leather or wool so you should know what type to buy for what method you want to use. For example, the best way to clean fabric would be with a vacuum cleaner and then steam cleaning because they are both gentle on the material. Another option is to use a dry cleaning process but there are some risks.


How to Vacuum a Petite Recliner

One of the best ways to clean a recliner is with a vacuum cleaner. You should start by vacuuming around the area where your pet spends most of their time and then work from there, going back-and-forth over what you just cleaned until it’s done. The only downside to this method is that those little particles can bounce up and get into the recliner, which can be a huge pain to clean up.


How to Steam Clean a Petite Recliner

Another option for cleaning a recliner is with steam. To do this, you can purchase what they call an “emergence” and attach it to your vacuum cleaner. You then fill up the bag with water and put in some vinegar or baking soda to help break down any stains that may be on the fabric before vacuuming them up.

When you steam clean a recliner, what it does is remove any stains or dirt that has built up on the fabric without actually getting into the fibers of your chair and damaging them like other types of cleaners might do. As for what type of cleaner you should use to get rid of pet odors from your furniture,  it really depends on what the source of the smell is.

Pet odors can come from a variety of places: hair, skin oils, food, and even urine to name just a few. The best way to figure out what type of pet odor you have would be to go through our handy list below that breaks down what each one smells like in detail.
