Why to Get Your Upholstery Cleaning Done Professionally

Why to Get Your Upholstery Cleaning Done Professionally

Aug 1, 2022

Your high-quality upholstered furniture is an investment. But when was the last time you thought about deep cleaning? Your armchairs, couches, sectionals, ottomans and other furniture with fabric elements need to be deep cleaned—just like your carpets – if you want them to last. Upholstery cleaning is a must to keep your furniture looking new and clean. Typically, a sofa can last between seven and 15 years, so why not ensure the longevity of your furniture? On the fence about whether your furniture needs the extra effort? Check out our top reasons why you might need professional couch cleaning and upholstery cleaning.

Enhance the Appearance (and Health) of Your Upholstery

Your couches and upholstered pieces get a lot of traffic, and those fabrics easily attract bacteria, dirt, dander, sweat and oil. Ewwwww, right? While you may vacuum routinely, it only scrapes the surface. It will not remove embedded dirt, allergens and bacteria from porous and absorbent materials like linen and velvet. Professional couch cleaning will flush those out of the fibers and bring the color in your cushions back to like-new vibrancy.

Improve Air Quality

We regret to inform you, but every time you hop onto the couch or into an armchair, you’re releasing dust, dirt, dead skin, bacteria and even potential mold into the air of your home. It can create symptoms of seasonal allergies like sneezing, coughing, and itchy, watery eyes. Unfortunately, vacuuming alone isn’t enough to remove the allergens from your fabrics. Professional couch cleaning can improve the air quality of your home and alleviate symptoms for you and your family.

Get Rid of Lingering Odors

For most of us, your living room furniture is the family’s favorite spot for hanging out, watching television with snacks, snuggling with a pet or fighting off a cold. With so much going on… on our couches… it can lead to unpleasant smells, whether it’s from past spills, bodily fluids or pet accidents. Instead of masking with upholstery sprays and over-the-counter carpet and upholstery cleaner, professional cleaning will permanently remove the odors by completely removing the source.

Remove Stubborn Stains

A stubborn stain is frustrating. While you may be tempted to clean upholstery on your own, we want to caution you. Sofa cleaner and other upholstery cleaners can actually be damaging to your fabrics. Without the proper equipment, you will not be able to fully extract the moisture which will lead to mold, mildew and potentially, even more staining. Our professional-grade equipment will remove deeply penetrating stains, so they no longer come to the surface or have lingering odors. While leather is more durable in terms of liquid-specific stains, pen, paint and other materials are difficult to remove from leather surfaces. So, no matter what fabric you have, our team can remove the most stubborn stains.

Once you have your upholstery cleaning services completed, why not protect your investment?

It works with cotton, silk, suede, leather and other fibers, so no matter what style of your upholstered furniture, we can help you repel liquids and prevent fabrics from attracting dust and dirt.
