Many people wonder, “How often should I professionally clean my upholstery (couch, chair, curtains, etc…)?” Most people don’t even realize that their couch or chair needs professionally cleaning. You clean your carpets right? Why aren’t you cleaning your chairs, couches, and curtains? A good rule of thumb to adhere to is to clean your upholstery when it’s noticeably stained, discolored, worn, or smells. Why…because it’s already much too late. Please keep in mind living room or family room furniture is used quite frequently. We as humans spend at least 90% of our time indoors on this furniture. Upholstery and carpet are large filters for contaminates and allergens, even bacteria are covering entirely.
Clean your Furniture Every 6-12 Months
Dust, dirt, pets, skin oils, odors, and food will be on your furniture and to keep your furniture longevity in tact you should professionally clean. Most professionals suggest often used furniture should be cleaned professionally every 6 to 12 months depending on your current hygiene levels. Micro-biologists recommend to increase your furniture cleanings to 3-4 times per year if you have pets or kids, or if your furniture endures heavy traffic. We would be negligent not to mention you should professionally steam clean your carpets & rugs too. It’s always a good rule to get one of the rooms that is less frequented every other year.
All of those contaminates will destroy the fibers of your investment and more importantly will prevent you from getting sick or establishing allergies.
Maintaining Your Beautiful Furniture
Now after you have your furniture professionally cleaned you need to vacuum your upholstery at least once a week and get yourself a bottle of Tide Fabric Disinfectant for about $6 for a 22oz bottle at Wal Mart and Target, and spray your furniture after a good cleaning. With just this simple practice you can go longer between cleanings and prevent you and your family from getting sick.
What you should know about Mississippi Valley Carpet Care
Germs Per Square Inch
According to the The Healthy's Fun Facts: Bacteria love munching on dead skin cells. Considering that the average person sheds about 1.5 million every hour, that turns your rugs into a fine dining experience when you add food particles, pet dander, pollen, and other bits. About 200,000 bacteria live in each square inch of carpet (nearly 700 times more than on your toilet seat), including E. coli, staphylococcus, and salmonella.
