It's Time to Show the Furniture the Same Love As the Floor
You get your floors and carpets cleaned at least twice a year, if not more. But what about your furniture? Are you showing it the same love as high-traffic areas? Your couch and chairs also receive their share of that traffic, too. Next time you call in the big guns for your floor, consider your furniture as well – and here’s why:
Saves you money
You have likely invested a significant amount of money in your upholstery, so you want to make it last. By keeping it maintained and cleaning it regularly, you’ll need to get it reupholstered or replace it less frequently, saving you money in the long run.
Keeps it comfortable
Looking after your upholstery maintains its function in the long run, which is to give you somewhere comfortable and beautiful to relax and travel in. Even high-quality fabric can show signs of damage if neglected, and no one wants to flop onto a worn-out sofa or car seat at the end of a long day.
Maintains the appearance
Keeping your upholstery clean will maintain its appearance, keeping colors bright and textures as they should be. Cleaning also eliminates stains and odor; dirt and grime is even more important if you have pets – prolonged exposure to such pollutants may degrade your upholstery.
Provides a clean, safe, and healthy environment
Air quality can be improved by cleaning your upholstery, getting rid of problems such as mold, dust, mildew, and allergens. Your soft furnishings are a breeding ground for bacteria, and pathogens and dirt can build up to the point where they can cause health risks. These organisms can be released into the environment each time someone sits down on a sofa or chair.
They’re manufactured with the expectations they’ll need cleaning
There is padding beneath the fabric, which is ready to soak up liquid you may spill at some point. Even if you think it has been removed from the surface, the spillage will likely be embedded deeper in the furniture and could reappear later it its life. This is especially important to note if you have upholstered furniture in boats.
