Regular Upholstery Cleaning for Health

Junior just spilled his grape soda on the couch and you're wondering why on earth you didn't go with the multi-colored upholstery that looked enough like that spill that no one could tell that it was there. Or, perhaps, you're realizing that your crazy aunt was right to put plastic over everything. Don't worry. Upholstery cleaning is inexpensive and an often neglected part of general home maintenance. It is something you should be doing with regularity, in fact, not just when there is an impossible stain.

Upholstery and Your Family: Be Clean, Be Beautiful



Every day, you and your family come in from outside and go immediately to the furniture. Often, it's snowing or raining, or your kid has come home from a sweaty soccer game or cheerleading practice, or maybe you've spent all day at the office surrounded by other people. Over time, germs, dirt, sweat - everything from ticks to swine flu - will build up on your upholstery Many people do not get their upholstery cleaned nearly enough, if at all. Basic home care should include upholstery cleaning at least once a year. It will contribute not only to the health of your home but its beauty as well.

Upholstery and Carpet Stains: Random Spills

If it isn't time for your yearly upholstery cleaning and there is a spill, you will naturally try to clean something yourself before calling in the cleaning professionals. The best method is preemptive—always ask the carpet store or furniture maker how to best clean the product while still at the store. Often you will find that you get information that is helpful but might not have been disclosed. Armed with this, you can purchase furniture that will stay cleaner longer, last longer, and you will know how to deal with problems as they arise. This also protects you from warranty problems, because some manufacturers even have specific cleaners that you can't use without discrediting any warranty or claim.

Professional Upholstery and Carpet Cleaning Services
Often, you will not be able to get a stain out. Your detergents and cleaning products might not have worked, but that does not mean that a professional cleaning service won't be able to do it for you.
