Benefits of Upholstery Cleaning
It’s where you read your favorite book, snooze after a long day at work, bring the kids’ friends over for a sleepover, and gather around to watch that one show that everyone in the family enjoys. What exactly are we discussing? Your furniture, or, to be more specific, the upholstery on your furniture. Regular upholstery cleaning is just as vital as regular carpet cleaning because you spend so much time on and around your furniture. That’s right: much like your carpets, your couches, chairs, sectionals, ottomans, and anything else made of fabric require comprehensive cleaning.
Indoor Air Quality
You’re unknowingly sending dust, dirt, grime, mold spores, dead skin, and bacteria into the air of your home every time you sit, lie, plop, or move around on your upholstered furniture. Of course, having dust, allergens, mold, mildew, or old stains on your upholstery can degrade the quality of the air in your home.
While effective air filters and houseplants can help filter out allergens, totally removing them from the upholstery means they won’t be picked up by the filter in the first place. And, for a clean home with clean air, total removal of allergies and dust is always desirable.
The family couch or sectional is where a lot of life happens. You’ve engaged in countless movie nights, eaten dozens of TV dinners, fought off illnesses, and watched hundreds of TV shows and cartoons. If you have a baby or toddler, the couch has been a changing table and feeding station. For most families, the living room furniture becomes the favorite spot for homework or running an at-home business, and you can bet it is your pet’s favorite spot to wait for you to come home.
Clearly, a lot happens on your furniture, and sometimes it’s all too obvious because of the odor. Plus, cooking odors from the kitchen have a way of staying on your upholstery, which also contributes to an unpleasant smell. Upholstery cleaning helps remove those odors by removing the source.
