Most cloth upholstery is delicate. It can be damaged it by the wrong cleaning agent and/or by rubbing too hard or too much. Some people make a mistake by not understanding their particular fabric. One error in the fabric upholstery cleaning department and you can make a real mess of things.
Wine stains are treated differently from food stains. Ink and crayon issues require different cleaners from those even. Pet and human “accidents” are different from that – even the processes change whether it’s urine, feces or vomit. That’s one reason you really do want someone that knows what they’re doing.
Your fabric couch may not look especially dirty, however, a subtle dinginess happens without you even noticing. Just like it settles everywhere else, dust and grime settle on your sofas, love seats, and chairs.
A thorough professional cloth upholstery deep cleaning can take years off your chair, sofa or loveseat’s appearance. Most people get their entire sectional or living room set done at one time.
Fabric Cleaning is Good For Your Health
When your skin comes in contact with the fabric, your natural body oils and sweat get transferred onto the fabric. These become absorbed and embedded into the fibers of the material. As a result, your furniture becomes a breeding ground for allergens, bacteria, and dust mites. (Who knows what other creepy micro-organisms might be in there.)
The American Lung Association states: “Mites are one of the major indoor triggers for people with allergies and asthma. Dust mite exposure can even cause asthma.” (You’ll find more info on the mattress page.)
When you deep clean your furniture’s upholstery on a regular basis, it mitigates these health risks. In addition, professional fabric furniture cleaning will extend the life of your furniture.
You know how it is.
The Dreaded Spill happens to everybody sooner or later. Even though you suddenly turned into an Olympic sprinter for the nearest absorbent material, now you keep seeing that spot.
Or did it happen this way? One uncomfortable moment you notice the cloth on your furniture looks kind of dingy. So you trot out your trusty vacuum and have at it. And you stand back proudly to see… sadly it still looks a little shabby to you.
