If you had to guess, what would you say is likely dirtiest item in your home? If you said the couch, you’d be right.
It’s easier to remember vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms, or mopping floors. But for some reason, couches and other upholstery are often pushed to the back burner.
Why Dirty Upholstery Is Bad For Your Health
Soft furnishings trap crumbs, dirt, dust, allergens, cleaning chemicals, body oils, bacteria—basically everything that finds its way onto our bodies and into the air we breath. Over time, these fibers become full, and that’s where the real problems start.
All the nasty things on our couches—the area where families spend the most time—find their way onto our bodies through contact and into our bodies as contaminants are released into the air we breath.
Plus, if you have a pet in the home, add additional dandruff, hair, urine, and even feces to the mix. Yikes!
How Routine Upholstery Cleaning Keeps Problems At Bay
While spot cleaning and vacuuming are important for removing surface stains, deep cleaning is required to remove allergens, bacteria, and other dangerous contaminants that burrow deep in your upholstery fibers.
With the right method—like carbonated upholstery cleaning from Chem-Dry—your furniture isn’t only clean, but sanitized and safe for your family.
A solid rule of thumb is to have your upholstery professional cleaned at least once each year—or double the frequency if there are children or pets in your home.
