Cleaning your upholstery is almost as important as cleaning your floors or your bathroom. Unfortunately, it’s one of the surfaces that we often neglect because we just don’t think about how dirty it can actually get.
The truth is, you live a lot of life on that upholstery. How often are you hanging out on the couch? What about the kids or the pets? Even if you don’t use the couch that much, it’s still susceptible to the dust and dirt from its surroundings.
If you think cleaning the upholstery isn’t important, think again. Check out these reasons to learn more.
What’s That Smell?
Have you ever sat down for a few minutes and instantly got a whiff of something? Maybe you can’t quite figure out where the odor is coming from. There’s a good chance that the “off” smell is coming from your upholstery.
It could have started with someone’s smelly feet resting on the couch. It could be from pets on the couch. Whatever the reason, the upholstery needs to be cleaned!
Cleaning can help to eliminate these odors.
It Affects Your Health
Did you know that deep down in the recesses of your furniture, there are dust mites and debris? You plop on the couch and all of that stuff hiding down there bounces up into the air around you.
Your upholstery might actually be harboring elements that affect your health. It’s quite possible that the upholstery is loaded with things like allergens, mold, mildew, and dust.
Just because you can’t really see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. It’s affecting the air you breathe and quite possibly your health, too.
If you feel like your upholstery is looking dingy, chances are it needs a good cleaning. Of course, upholstery can fade a bit with age. However, you might just be surprised at what a good, detailed cleaning of that fabric can do.
Cleaning the upholstery can get rid of stains and all that built-up dirt that isn’t visible until it’s suddenly gone. Your furniture may look nearly brand-new again in some cases.
On that same note, regularly cleaning the upholstery might also help your furniture last longer. Regular cleaning can help reduce natural wear and tear related to stains and dirt. Your furniture will look nicer for much longer when it’s cleaned regularly.
Professional Upholstery Cleaning
It’s a good idea to have your upholstery professionally cleaned every 6-12 months. In between those cleanings, you can be proactive and try to vacuum and dust the furniture as well.
