Most people never even think of getting their upholstery cleaned unless there is a big stain on it.   The picture above shows a striking difference with no big stain on the dirty side…just grime.    Think of all the people in your home that sit on the furniture and all the guests that visit.  Dirt, skin oils, skin cells, food residue, etc slowly accumulate making your upholstery dingy & unclean.    For the health of your home & family it is a very good idea to get upholstery cleaned on a regular basis.  (Plus it makes your home look nice!)

How Often Should You Have Upholstery Cleaned?

To keep your furniture clean, it’s necessary to conduct routine maintenance (e.g. vacuuming, immediate attention to spills), coupled with periodic cleaning by a certified technician every 12 to 24 months.

 Furniture and fabric manufacturers recommend that consumers not wait until severe soiling occurs before cleaning because the greater the soiling, the less the likelihood of restoring the fabric’s original color, appearance and texture; and the greater adverse effect on indoor environmental quality.

Regular cleaning of fabric and leather furnishings by a trained, certified professional can help restore your furniture’s appearance, extend its life, and keep it looking like new. Moreover, certified professionals can offer simple suggestions to maintain a clean and healthy home or business environment overall.
