After a long day at the office, you can relax with a good book on it, host a sleepover for the kids’ friends, or all gather around it to watch the one show that everyone in the family loves. What on earth are we discussing? Specifically, your furniture and the upholstery on it. Upholstery Cleaning should be as frequent as carpet cleaning due to the high volume of activity that takes place on and around furniture. Yes, it is necessary to deep clean your carpets in addition to any furniture that contains fabric, including couches, chairs, sectionals, ottomans, and the like.

The 7 Most Important Reasons to Get Your Upholstery Cleaned Regularly are as Follows:

1. Hygiene of the Air

Upholstered furniture is a walking bacterium incubator because with every movement—sitting, lying, plopping, or otherwise—you unwittingly release dust, filth, grime, mold spores, dead skin, and bacteria into the air of your home. Naturally, indoor air quality can be negatively impacted if your upholstery is filled with allergens, dust, mold, mildew, or old stains.

If you vacuum the upholstery thoroughly, the allergens won’t be there for the air filter to pick up, but if you have houseplants, those will help. It is always preferable to have allergens and dust completely removed from a home in order to have clean air.

2. Medical

The fibers of your upholstery can become a breeding ground for allergens, dust mites, fleas, mold, and bacteria. If left unchecked, these creatures can trigger a host of illnesses and sensitivities. Those who are already sensitive to dust or mold will feel the effects even more acutely. Keeping up with routine upholstery cleaning greatly decreases the presence of these allergens, which aids in maintaining a healthy home environment for your family.

3. Smells

Many important life events take place on the family couch or sectional. There have been innumerable movie nights, dozens of TV dinners, battles against illness, and hundreds of hours of television shows and cartoons that you have watched. The couch has served as a feeding station and changing table for many parents of infants and toddlers. Your pet probably loves to lounge on the couch while you’re at work on that homework or run your home business, just like most families do.

Your furniture sees a lot of action, and the stench might make it even worse. On top of that, remnants of food cooking can linger on upholstery for quite some time, adding to the overall unpleasant aroma. By getting to the root of the problem, upholstery cleaning helps eliminate unpleasant smells.

4. Furniture That Lasts a Long Time

A lot of money goes into your furniture because it is an investment. Cleaning your furniture regularly will help it last longer, whether it’s from normal wear and tear or from accidents involving spills, oils, or grease.

5. A Longevity Capability

You know that worn-out appearance that upholstery can take on? The dirt and dust are like little bits of sandpaper rubbing against the fabric, causing that effect. To extend the life of your furniture and remove this dust, clean the upholstery regularly. This will also make the upholstery last longer.
