Everyone’s living room couch needs a good cleaning every now and then, but this is doubly true if you have pets that like to lounge on your furniture. Our couches often weather a lot, from spills and pet hair to everyday wear and tear. If it’s been a while since you last cleaned your couch upholstery, you might be wondering if it’s time for a good clean.
Here are three reasons to have your upholstery cleaned regularly.
1. Keeps your furniture looking clean: One thing is having your favorite sofa feeling “broken in” but it’s another for it to look broken. Keeping your furniture looking nice makes you want to maintain it and keep it longer. Calling to schedule a professional upholstery cleaning periodically will help you maintain a clean and better looking decor in your home.
2. Keep your family healthy: Simply put, your health is the primary reason you want to keep clean upholstery. Unfortunately, there are many allergens and pollutants that you don’t see that linger deep inside your furniture. Without the proper cleaning, your favorite sofa will be the favorite resting spot for dust mites which can create havoc to your health, especially for people with breathing issues, such as asthma.
3. Improve your home’s air quality: Most people don’t realize that your upholstery acts as a giant air filter. Dust and allergens collect on the soft surface, then gets stirred back into the air causing poor indoor air quality. A regular cleaning can get rid of problems such as mold, dust, mildew, and allergens. Similar to changing out your AC filters regularly.
