Benefits of Having Your Furniture Professionally Cleaned
Most people don’t realize just how soiled their upholstered furniture is… and how much contaminated dirt, pollen, dust mite feces, pollution, and grunge sits in the cushions. Even if you keep your house extremely clean, your couch may be a hiding dust, mold and grime. In carpeted homes, up to 80% of the dust and dirt brought into the home can settle into upholstered furniture and carpet. Allergists, upholsterers and cleaners all agree that the key to keeping upholstered furniture in good shape is frequent vacuuming.
Think of how much dust would accumulate on a table if it were never dusted. That same amount is on your sofa, too. You just can’t see it. Dust is the #1 enemy of upholstered furniture. Gritty matter blows in through open doors and windows and gathers on your furniture cushions and backs. Then, when you sit on the cushion, the oils from your skin compress the dirt into the fabric until it’s almost impossible to remove by vacuuming. The abrasive action of the grit compressing into the fiber cuts the fibers like a knife--that’s why your furniture wears out. Our professional cleaning processes help prevent damage to upholstery fabric by removing tiny soil particles that, when left unattended, slowly scratch, abrade, and permanently change the appearance of your upholstered furniture. Then, combine this with pollen, food crumbs, dust mites and their nasty fecal pellets…your furniture is literally covered with soil in the short span of just a year (with the average family). If you have pets and kids your furniture needs to be cleaned thoroughly at least once a year.
Those small soil particles are allergens to many individuals and have an impact on inside air quality. Having dirt, dust mites, and other pollutants professionally removed from your upholstered furniture helps to reduce allergic reactions.
