6 Reasons Upholstery Cleaning Is Important

Is your upholstered furniture looking worse for wear? Couches, chairs, ottomans, benches and any other furniture with fabric requires a deep upholstery cleaning every now and then just like your carpets. A quick clean can get your favorite pieces of furniture looking as good as new again.

Here’s a closer look at six key benefits illustrating the importance of upholstery cleaning.

Promoting good indoor air quality

You release dirt, dust, and bacteria into the air each time you sit, lie or move around on upholstered furniture. It only makes sense that dirty upholstery negatively affects the indoor air quality of your home—and good filters and household plants are only moderately effective at removing allergens from the air. If you want cleaner air in your home, invest in upholstery cleaning to keep dirt, dust and grime at bay.

Reducing odors

Upholstery (and fabrics in general) have a way of picking up smells. Even your living room couch can pick up food odors from the kitchen. Regular upholstery cleaning removes stubborn odors from your fabrics, helping your entire home smell more pleasant.

Freshening up furniture

Furniture is oftentimes an expensive investment, and you want to make sure your pieces last as long as possible. Regular wear and tear, along with food, body oil and even pet messes, can take a toll on the appearance of your furniture.

Also, faded, thinning upholstery is caused by dust and dirt. As the particles rub against the fabric, they act like sandpaper, wearing down the texture and removing color. Invest in regular cleaning to preserve the look and function of your furniture instead of paying the price for full replacement.

Cleaning up after disasters or accidents

Have you recently experienced a roof leak or a minor stove fire? These simple accidents are out of our control, and they can affect the upholstered furniture in your entire home. While you may be inclined to throw out any furniture pieces that have suffered water or smoke damage, you can usually save them with a thorough upholstery cleaning.

Improving health

People who have mold or dust allergies—even minor ones—can benefit from having their upholstered furniture cleaned regularly. There are plenty of nooks and crannies in upholstered sofas and chairs—and they collect dust, mold spores and bacteria. Promote a healthy living environment by scheduling regular deep cleanings to remove potential irritants from triggering allergies.

Enhancing the appearance of your home

Well-kept furniture can elevate the style of any interior space. If you’re covering up stains with pillows and blankets or if you’re generally embarrassed at the condition of your upholstered furniture, a deep cleaning is an inexpensive way to make not just your furniture but your entire home, as a whole, look much better.
