How often do you sit on your lounge or sofa?
How often do you walk on your floor rugs?
Now that you have answered those questions – how often do you clean them?
The cleaning of upholstered items in the home is not always something we think about doing and at times they will only get spot cleaned when there is something that is spilled on them, however like any other piece of furniture in your home, they should be cleaned regularly.
Your lounge is one of the most used pieces of furniture in the home, so it is bound to get dirty. Even if there are no visible stains or marks on the lounge, there would be dirt that has accumulated underneath the top layer and working its way down to the lower fibres.
Why should I get my upholstered items cleaned?
Dirt, dust and grime accumulate over time – no matter what surface they are on. Fabric surfaces tend to pull in the dirt and dust and they are held by the fibres of the fabric. It is important to clean these items regularly as it is not only a factor that they are holding hidden dirt but it can also be a health concern if they are holding dust mites or substances that can aid the growth of mould and other bacteria.
It is concerning the amount of different things that can grow in your upholstery without you being able to see them. A good deep clean or steam clean of these items can help remove and eliminate the growth of different bacteria and remove any dirt and grime build up.
Why should I use a professional?
Like any other cleaning throughout the home you can buy products from the supermarket to do it yourself however when working with fabric items this can be an issue if it is not done right.
You run the risk of damaging the fabric either through the chemicals being too harsh and breaking down the fibres of the fabric or by accidentally removing the colour from the fabric along with the stains you are trying to remove.
There is also the issue around the amount of product you use and the risk of the fabric staying wet for too long and aiding the growth of mould and bacteria.
By hiring a professional they are able to use their specialised products and equipment to safely clean the upholstered items and have them looking and feeling like new in no time. Their products and equipment do not leave the items wet for long periods of time and are the safer option when it comes to your health.
Is it cost effective?
