7 Reasons for Upholstery Cleaning

Upholstery is part of our lives. Whether you’re enjoying a good book in the living room or you’re relaxing and watching Netflix after a long day of work, we use our couches and armchairs day in and day out.

Our furniture’s upholstery can also be a big factor as to how our home’s interior design looks and smells.

why it’s a great idea to keep it looking clean and gorgeous, and it’s only one of seven reasons why we recommend you hire a professional company for upholstery cleaning services. What are the other seven reasons? Read on…

1. Air Quality

It’s embarrassing to hear from someone that the air in your home smells stuffy and stale, isn’t it? If a room is left unclean for too long, the smell can and will build up and get worse over time. One of the biggest culprits of poor air quality is furniture itself.

Upholstery cleaning services can both clean out stains on the surface of cushions and remove bad smells, and this in turn can create improved air quality and a fresh, clean smell. Good air quality can help you and everyone else in your home feel good and be in better spirits as well.

2. Your Pets

In addition to dust, pollen, smoke, and our own bodies, pets are one of the biggest causes of upholstery damage and mess. It’s incredibly difficult to vacuum all of the hair left behind by a dog or cat on the couch—sometimes you may find hair where you’d least expect it even after cleaning up.

Another scenario that’s worth avoiding includes the following: if you have guests over for a party or for dinner, the last thing you’d want them to bring home are hairs and dander left behind by your pets. Plus, disaster can occur if your guests have allergies.

As much as we love our pets, we know it’s hard to clean up after them perfectly. Pet hair is something pet owners live with daily, but that doesn’t mean your furniture has to. A professional service can clean deeper than the average vacuum cleaner and remove pet dander and hair completely.

3. Your Allergies

If you have allergies or your children, loved ones, and house guests have allergies as well, your furniture can turn into a health hazard. No one can live their lives doing nothing but coughing, wheezing, and sneezing when all they want to do is relax.

Upholstery can harbour a huge amount of dust and pollen that may come in from outside and settle onto your furniture. In-depth cleaning really is one of the only ways to get rid of allergen triggers and help you live your life more comfortably.

4. Your Schedule

We’re sure you have a busy schedule, whether it’s going to work at the office or staying at home to work. Maybe you have children of your own, or perhaps you help run a daycare in your house?

Whatever the circumstances, life happens and sometimes it can intervene with the time that’s required to properly clean your furniture upholstery. When you hire a professional cleaning company, you can go to work knowing they are doing their job and come home to sparkling clean and beautiful furniture that you can relax on.

5. Enhanced Looks

Don’t you hate it when you accidentally spill your cup of tea and it lands on the couch? A professional cleaning service can help get rid of those unpleasant stains.

In-depth cleaning can also give your furniture a slight radiant glow, especially if it looks faded, dim, or dull than when you first bought it. A professional team can also help you maintain the original colours so that they don’t fade again too, providing an eye-catching sight to anyone who steps into the room—including you.

6. Longer-lasting Furniture

Like everything in life, furniture doesn’t last forever. Years and years of usage can wear down the materials your upholstery is made of. Plus, dust can collect and seep in between the fabrics and threads used to put your couch together.

Professional cleaning can help restore some of the springiness and even toughness your furniture was built to be in the first place, and it can get rid of the dust clinging to it.

7. Furniture Quality

Furniture can be incredibly expensive to replace, especially if its upholstery is destroyed before you got much use out of it.

Professional cleaning can not only clean deeply, but also it can help strengthen the fibres and materials weaved around the foam or padding that your couch is made of.

This, in turn, will help keep the softer stuff needed to help you stay comfortable and to help your cushions stay intact and firm for years.
