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.

Extends the Life of Your Furniture

Your furniture is an investment, and one that may be quite costly. Cleaning your furniture on a regular basis can extend the life of your investment, whether it’s due to normal wear and tear or spilled milk, body oil, or grease.


Do you have those stains on your couch that you’ve tried to hide with a blanket or pillow but still feel uncomfortable about when company comes over? We all do, of course!
We use our furniture on a daily basis, whether it’s from children and animals, or simply because it’s old and showing signs of typical wear and tear. And regardless of how clean your house and carpets are, if the upholstery on your furniture is filthy and muddy, the rest of the house will not feel clean.
The simple solution is to have your carpet cleaner also clean your upholstery when they are cleaning your carpets.


You know how your furniture upholstery may have that faded, thinned look? This is caused by dust and debris rubbing against the fabric like sandpaper. Regular upholstery cleaning removes this dust and increases the upholstery’s resilience, ensuring that your furniture lasts for many years.

Hire Professional Furniture Cleaning Services

Many individuals are tempted to clean their own upholstery, but we strongly advise against it. One of the reasons professional carpet and upholstery cleaning is so effective is that we are aware of potential problems and work to prevent them from causing damage to your furniture and carpets. We can also completely remove dampness from your furnishings. Water and moisture left over can be a major issue, causing:
-Additional staining
Many cleaning devices available for purchase in stores lack the power of truck-mounted water extraction equipment. As a result, even if you think you’ve gotten all of the moisture out of the upholstery, there could still be more hidden beneath the surface.
