Do I Need to Clean Upholstery Frequently?
No, you don’t. In fact, we don’t recommend you frequently clean your upholstery as that can cause it to lose its color or wear down faster than normal. For furniture used regularly in a household, once every one to two years is perfectly fine.
However, if you have furniture in a public space like an office lobby or reception room, you may want to clean your upholstery thoroughly every eight months or so instead. This all depends on the material your upholstery is made out of, how many people use it, and where it’s located.
Why Do I Need to Clean My Upholstery?
Upholstery is often an overlooked part of cleaning up a home. There are many benefits to cleaning your upholstery.
Getting Rid of Bacteria
When you think about bacteria, images of dirty toilet bowls, tubs, and sinks conjure up, right? Well, you’d be surprised, but bacteria can also grow on everyday surfaces, especially upholstery. Think about you and your family on the sofa or chairs every day.
Using furniture daily means skin oils, flakes, dust, and bacteria from your body can naturally collect and build up on upholstery. While it’s mostly harmless, you still should get it cleaned every once in a while to ensure that your home remains sanitary. This is especially important if you have pets in your home that also venture outside.
Preserving the Quality of Your Furniture
Your furniture requires more attention than regular dusting and wiping. The longer you let stains and other contaminants affect your upholstery, the worse your furniture will look not only on an aesthetic principle but on a functional level as well.
Cleaning your upholstery is a part of preserving the quality of your furniture. While frequent cleaning is harmful, doing it once annually will help ensure the longevity of your chairs, sofas, and more.
Helping Your Home Smell Fresh
So you’ve thrown out the garbage, cleaned your air ducts, and mopped the floors. Yet still, there’s a foul odor lingering throughout your home. Your furniture could be the source of that smell, especially the upholstery.
If your upholstery smells, cleaning it can help eliminate those odors. While you can use air fresheners and other products, they are hardly permanent and can often be irritants to those sensitive to air quality. Instead, get rid of the odor right at the source with our hot water extraction method.
How Does Hot Water Extraction Work?
As opposed to dry cleaning, hot water extraction uses hot water to release stains and dirt while also killing any bacteria. It is a better way to clean upholstery and yields the best results. After the hot water does its job, we extract and steam it all away.
If you’re uncomfortable with hot water extraction on your furniture or if you just prefer not to clean your upholstery in this way, we still offer dry cleaning as an alternative. However, our technicians are skilled at hot water extraction and will take great care of your furniture to prevent any risk of damage.
How Long Is the Cleaning Process?
Cleaning your upholstery should take no longer than 30 minutes. The longest amount of time it can take for our technicians is usually around an hour to an hour and a half if there are lots of furniture or if special cleaning is required.
We know that you’re busy. Our technicians don’t aim to linger and aim to get the job done efficiently without compromising the quality of our work.
