Why You Need Professional Upholstery Cleaning

Feb 26, 2014

maryland restaurant cleaning company 3A clean home is a happy home. You can spend hours cleaning; organizing, dusting, and sanitizing, but what do you do when it comes to your upholstery? You want the surface you sit on to be clean, but do you know how to properly clean it without ruining the fabric? Upholstery cleaning is one task that is best left to professionals.

Why Does Upholstery Need Cleaning?

Like any service, upholstery is prone to color changes and capturing odors from repeated use. Just as you consistently clean heavily touched hard surfaces, upholstery fabrics need to be cleaned regularly, too. Fabric and leather upholstery absorb dirt and pollutants which settle deep into the fibers. Routine cleaning is required to maintain softness and bright looks. Cleaning upholstery also prevents smells, helps with air quality, and ensures a clean sitting surface. Ultimately, it maintains the appearance of furniture so it continues to look new.

Why Have it Professionally Done?

When you read the instructions on your home cleaning solutions, you are warned that they may stain or discolor furniture surfaces. While you can mask the smell of dirty upholstery with fabric sprays or try your luck at spot cleaning with soap and water, you aren’t really getting your furniture clean. Entrusting your upholstery to a professional cleaning service guarantees that your furniture will get the deepest clean possible. Professional upholstery cleaners will know how to clean without damaging the material. Having upholstery professionally cleaned will remove dirt, dust, pollutants, stains, and more. Professional cleaners have the knowledge to clean your fabric without ruining its integrity, and they can even protect your furniture from future stain and discoloration by applying fabric protectors, maximizing the look of your furniture after it has been cleaned.

Do It Yourself Dangers

People like to save money by doing things themselves, but, as mentioned above, cleaning upholstery is best left to professionals. Upholstery fibers are different from carpet materials and using the wrong cleaning system or product can ruin it. The products used by professionals are often unavailable for use by the public, and even if they are used without knowledge or experience, colors can run and blend. Some cleaners may also be toxic or corrosive, and should not be used without some way to wash out or remove the chemical after cleaning. Professional cleaners also use equipment the average homeowner doesn’t own.

"WOW, WOW, WOW. I don't know what else to say. With two dogs and a 2 year old running around the house, our carpets and furniture need cleaning on a regular basis. It's nice to know that all I need to do is pick up the phone and I have no more worries. In this day and age, it is a very pleasant surprise to come across a company who will do what they say they will do when they say they will do it and with very little supervision. Kudos to Kent Clean!!! Thanks Larry!"
