How Often Should You

Have Your Upholstery Cleaned

We don’t often think about the fact that every single time we leave our home, we come back with germs and bacteria stuck to our skin, clothing, shoes, hands keys, phone, etc. and where do all of those bacteria go? They go onto our couches, rugs, curtains, chairs, and beds. We can’t avoid the germs we collect from the outside world, but we can help avoid a build of them inside of our homes.

Removing and/or reducing the number of bacteria we bring and leave inside of our homes can help reduce diseases and allergic reactions within our household. I guess the real question is, how often should we clean our upholstery?

A Healthy Home is Not a Luxury, it is a Must.
Every time you sit on the couch you are transferring bodily fluids, bacteria, dirt, and dust onto the couch's surface. The fibers in your upholstery will act as a home for all of the bacteria and small organisms that choose to take up residence in them. What a professional upholstery cleaning does is remove all of these microscopic pests from the inner being of your upholstery without using toxic and dangerous products
How often should you be cleaning your upholstery?
Waiting until you can see the build-up of dirt and bacteria is one step too late. Once you can see the build-up of microscopic organisms on your upholstery, you’re looking at a growth that needs to be completely removed, which will take your upholstery with it.

How do you avoid simply forgetting to have your upholstery cleaned? Get on a schedule with a professional company that can come out and will remove odors, stains, and build-up from all of your upholstery surfaces. Some homes with children and pets have companies come clean their homes weekly, others biweekly, and homes without children or animals call monthly.

The schedule can be one that you and your household are comfortable with, but cleaning upholstery should always be worked into a feasible budget to promote a healthy home environment.

The answer to the question of how many times your upholstery should be cleaned depends largely on what activities take place in the home. For example, are you having guests over on a regular basis? Other activities include children, pets, and family members. All of these details can help you create a timeline for each year on when and how your upholstery will be cleaned. It is important to remember that cleanings are incredibly important for long-term health and well-being.
