Who Needs Professional Upholstery Cleaning?
If there’s furniture in your house, you need professional upholstery cleaning. From rugs to furniture to drapes, there are multiple benefits to having a professional clean the upholstery in the home. A clean house has significant effects on a family’s health. A study conducted by Indiana University concluded that people who have clean houses are healthier than people with messy houses. But who has the time to keep up with all of the housework? Between daily maintenance and massive seasonal projects, there may not be enough time in the day to worry about the upholstery. However, hiring a professional carpet or upholstery cleaning service can take a lof off of homeowners’ plates, especially this time of year before the holidays.
The Five Benefits of Professional Upholstery Cleaning
There are multiple benefits to having the upholstery in the home professionally cleaned. The CDC recommends keeping the house clean to prevent the spread of illness, but there are more benefits to having professionally cleaned upholstery. Here are a few of them:
1. Better Air Quality in the Home
The upholstery in the home collects allergens naturally. Professional upholstery cleaning removes allergens such as dander, pollen, and dust. These allergens commonly irritate the eyes, nose, and throat of both humans and pets in the home. When these allergens are removed, everyone in the house experiences better air quality and better health.
2. Longer Furniture Life
Having the upholstery cleaned professionally will lengthen the usable life of the furniture in the home. Regular professional upholstery cleaning prevents long-lasting stains from forming on the furniture. Additionally, cleaning the furniture removes buildups of odors, body oil, and dust that may permanently attach themselves to the fabric. Maintaining a regular cleaning schedule for all fo the upholstery in the home will lengthen the life of the furniture and will save homeowners money in the long run.
Admittedly, it’s no surprise to homeowners that clean furniture looks better than dirty furniture. A professional upholstery cleaning leaves all of the furniture in the home looking new and fresh. Additionally, the integrity of the couch cushions is preserved by regular cleaning, and they’ll look better and last longer.
4. Fresher Smell
From food spills to animal odors to teenagers’ sweat, the furniture’s upholstery gathers a ton of scents throughout its life. While homeowners may be tempted to use fabric freshening products like Febreeze, these products only cover up the smell and don’t address the source. A professional upholstery cleaning is the only way to rid the furniture of invasive and unwanted odors truly. A fresh-smelling home is a more comfortable home for everyone, humans, and animals alike.
5. Safest Cleaning Practices
Professional carpet cleaning companies that offer upholstery cleaning services have experience with a myriad of different fabric types. When homeowners hire a professional upholstery cleaner, they don’t have to worry about any damage to their furniture. The professionals identify the safest cleaning practice for each piece of furniture, and they already have all of the supplies.
Tips for Pet Owners
Pet owners have a unique problem when it comes to their upholstery. Many homeowners, particularly those with cats, know the frustration of getting ready for work or school in the morning to realize that pet hair is all over everything. Cats and dogs shed fur everywhere, and it can find its way into nearly any crack and crevice of the furniture. For people who have allergies or are sensitive to other contaminants, this amount of hair can be uncomfortable at best. Vacuums only go so far when removing hair from the upholstery. There are a few ways to reduce the amount of pet hair that finds itself embedded in the upholstery and carpet around the home:
- Regular grooming. Pets shed their fur often, and this hair finds its way into the furniture’s upholstery, especially in between couch cushions. To stay on top of this shedding, make sure to regularly brush all pets in the home to ensure that loose hair is collected before it has a chance to fall off on the carpet or couch.
- Pet beds. When dogs and cats have their beds to lay in, they may get on the furniture and in the bed less. By providing pets with beds, homeowners reduce the surface area needed to be cleaned to rid their homes of pet hair.
- Rubber brooms. Rubber brooms create a static charge when they make contact with the carpet. Pet hair is attracted to the rubber pad, and when it accumulates, the pet hair can be removed by vacuum.
While all of the above will undoubtedly help with a pet hair problem in the home, the best bet is to call a professional carpet cleaner to rid the carpet and upholstery of pet hair completely. Additionally, for those with small children in the house, it’s important to ensure cleanliness to ensure children’s health.
When Hiring a Professional Upholstery Cleaner, Be Sure To:
- Inform the professional carpet or upholstery cleaners of any allergies or sensitivities to any chemicals in the home.
- Mention what kind of and how many pets live in the home.
- Inform the cleaner if any small children are in the home or any who spend significant time on the carpet or furniture.
