Why Professional Upholstery Cleaning is Important


by Daniel Law - August 25, 2019

We all care about our interior design of the house. Did you know your furniture contributes a lot to how your house looks? Even with the good colour scheme and fantastic wall hangings, poor furniture upholstery maintenance will make your house look shabby and dirty. Therefore, it is important to invest in good quality furniture for your house to attain the classy elegant look of your interior design. After investing in good quality upholstery, it is also important to invest in professional cleaning and maintenance of your upholstery. The same care and attention you give to the house or the car to ensure it is in a good condition should be the same care accorded to the wellbeing of your upholstery. Below are five main reasons why it is important to get a professional to help with the cleaning of your upholstery.

1) Increases the life span of your upholstery

After investing in good and quality furniture, you should clean it regularly to increase its lifespan. Many people think cleaning the upholstery will cause premature wear and tear, but the opposite is true. Professional cleaning of your upholstery will remove dust, dirt and eroding constituents that make your upholstery to wear off quickly. Professional cleaners use materials and products that are gentle and mild on the upholstery making them last longer.

2) Saves you time

Cleaning upholstery is not an easy task. You will need to dedicate almost a whole day to clean your furniture. In addition, you may not make it to clean the upholstery on your own to the thorough standards a trained and professional cleaner will do. The equipment used to clean upholstery are expensive to hire and will require investing time and money to get one. Therefore, to save you the time and money, just hire a professional to help you clean your upholstery.

3) Refurbishes appearance

Think about the many activities that happen around your couch. You watch movies from the couch, you have your visitors seat on the couch, you read your favourite book on the couch, after a long day, you lie on the couch to catch your breath before you start your house chores at home, and many other activities that lead you to the couch. In the process, the furniture upholstery may be subjected to wear, spilled coffee, food particles and dust particles. This will make the upholstery look old and dirty. To maintain the classy look, consider getting a professional to clean it for you. Cleaning removes every dust and corrosive substance on the furniture, leaving it looking new and well maintained.

4) Improves air quality in the house

Upholstery in your house is capable of collecting and harbouring dust, allergens, mould, pollen, dander and smoke particles. This will affect the general air quality of your house. Dirty upholstery will make your house feel damp and stuffy even with a good air filter and house plants. Investing in professional upholstery cleaning will remove all these particles, making the air in your house feel fresh and clean.

5) Kills bacteria

The fibre in your upholstery can harbour different disease causing organisms such as mites, fleas, bacteria, mould, allergens and dust. These organisms can cause illnesses or allergies when left in the fibre of the upholstery for too long. Steam cleaning, offered by professional cleaning companies, will kill all the bacteria and organisms present in your upholstery, ensuing a more safe and hygienic environment. It will also remove fungi, mould and mildews that may be causing serious health issues for you and the members of your family.

Cleaning your upholstery by yourself may not be effective. Without the proper knowledge and equipment needed to clean the fabric of the upholstery, you will most likely leave water moisture that can lead to the development of mildew and mould. Unprofessional cleaning can also lead to thinning, fading and damaging of your upholstery. If you are looking for professional cleaning of your upholstery, contact us at Calibre Cleaning.
