Spring is here, and now is a great time to deep clean your home and prepare for the rest of the year. If you want to have a clean, healthy home, here’s a fact you should know: the dirtiest item in your home is likely your couch.
So why is that? Well, we typically remember to wipe down our counters, sweep and mop the floors, and clean our bathrooms. But our attention is often diverted from our couches and furniture—which is where most of the dirt and dust in our homes settles.
How Often You Should Have Your Upholstery Cleaned
Think of how often we are in our living rooms and on our couch, it is an essential part of any home. But how often are you cleaning it? Couches and other upholstery in our homes trap dirt, allergens, dust, pet hair, and so much more, which is why regular, professional cleaning is essential to maintain your home’s cleanliness.
First, it’s important to remember that there’s a big difference between regular vacuuming or spot cleaning and deep furniture cleaning.
Surface cleaning as part of your routine can help preserve your furniture by reducing surface dirt that can wear down your upholstery fibers over time. Spot cleaning can also reduce visible stains as they occur.
However, there is often much more than meets the eye. In fact, the biggest risk is what you can’t see—deep down dust and allergens that can’t be eliminated without professional cleaning equipment. In order to maintain a healthy home, your furniture should be professionally cleaned once or twice a year. If there are animals or children in the home, you should clean your upholstery every 3-4 months.
Professional Upholstery Cleaning is Necessary
Regularly vacuuming and spot cleaning your upholstery are important tasks that shouldn’t be overlooked—but deeper upholstery cleaning by professionals is also needed. Delta Chem-Dry in Santa Monica can clean your upholstery thoroughly with non-toxic solutions and no excess moisture.
