Keeping in mind all the items that need to be maintained and cleaned in your home is difficult. Many ease their minds by making a list. Effective lists are typically broken down into regularly time periods. However, even with a working list in play it can be difficult to find time to get it all done. For instance, when was the last time you thoroughly cleaned your upholstery? Here’s why enlisting assistance can be very beneficial.
Why Regular Upholstery Cleaning?
Having clean furniture may seem to be a no-brainer, but there are some sound reasons that many are unaware of concerning their upholstery. Here are a few that the cleaning techs at AAA 1 Carpet & Upholstery Care share with clients:
- Upholstery is one the main harbors for allergens such as dust mites, pet dander, and pollen. If you have an allergy sufferer in your home, regularly cleaning upholstery and carpeting is essential to reducing their symptoms.
- Few consider that their upholstery also can be a haven for bacteria. When foods or drinks spill on upholstery (and are not thoroughly cleaned), bacteria will grow on the fibers. Some of the hot spots for bacterial growth on upholstered furnishing are in the crevices and folds of the fabric. These places rarely get sunlight and are harder to clean making them ideal for bacterial growth. Bacterial growth on furnishings leads to undesirable odors and an increase in sicknesses.
- The warranty of upholstered furniture ALMOST ALWAYS has clauses that call for proper cleaning for the warranty to be upheld.
Having Upholstery Professionally Cleaned
Considering all of the bullet points above, if you do not have the time or equipment to thoroughly clean your upholstery, a professional cleaner is the best option. Good furniture is an investment and fine furniture can be passed down for generations.
