It’s Important to Clean Your Sofa Upholstery Regularly

Your furniture is a valuable part of your home. It adds character and style, while also being a functional part of your everyday life. Your furniture is also an important investment, and it is vital that it be cared for properly. Even if you believe your furniture is clean, your sofa upholstery may be housing more things than you think.  That is why regular sofa upholstery cleaning is important.

Cleaning your sofa upholstery on a regular basis will help you avoid the build-up of unwanted materials, even if the dirt isn’t immediately visible. It is recommended that you perform sofa upholstery cleaning at least every year, and if you have pets or children or if you smoke, you may want to consider it more often. Things that may be hidden in your upholstery include:

  • Germs
  • Stains
  • Dust
  • Dander
  • Allergens
  • Bacteria

Regular sofa upholstery cleaning will help to protect the quality and value of your furniture, remove deep stains, restore color, and revive textures. It can also remove unwanted scents and pet odors.

It’s easier to maintain your sofa upholstery between each cleaning by vacuuming weekly, removing new stains as best you can with a clean cloth, and using specialized cleaning products made for your sofa fabric type.  Other special care instructions can be found on the upholstery tag.
