Do you really need to clean your upholstery regularly? The answer is yes! From Davis to Shingle Springs, Elk Grove, Folsom, Sacramento and all points in between, here are several reasons why your upholstery needs to be cleaned.
First, it will help keep the beauty of your furniture. Many people don’t maintain their upholstery and often don’t try a professional cleaning before buying new. Take a look at our before and after gallery to see some amazing results! This will help you extend the life of your furniture and in the end, save you money by not having to replace it as often!
Second, it helps cut down on dust and other allergens that can build up naturally. Regularly professionally cleaning your upholstery will help keep you healthier! By keeping all of your textiles cleaned professionally, it helps the air quality of your home to be healthier.
It will also help keep your home smelling fresher. All fabric will act as a filter of sorts. It not only will absorb what is spilled or dropped, it will absorb smells. Oils from your skin, perfumes or colognes you may wear, that diaper someone changed on your sofa or that beloved 4-legged family member just laying on your furniture all add up to smells that build up that you may not notice. Sure, you could use a commercial fabric freshener, but is it really clean or did it just do a good job of covering up the smell? Only a certified professional cleaning can get those out.
By adding in a fabric protector product, such as our Green Guard, it helps you be able to catch stains that may have set in. See our article here on how adding our Green Guard to your upholstery (or any textile) will help with stain repellent!
Here are a few tips to help you maintain the beauty of your furniture. Be sure to thoroughly vacuum your entire piece of furniture regularly, at least once a week. Use the crevice tools to really get all those nooks and crannies. Don’t let the dust build in the corners to wear your textiles down. Be sure to move your furniture and thoroughly clean under it a well. It helps minimize dirt that can naturally be absorbed, as well help keep your air quality healthier.
