When You Need Upholstery Cleaning

How Can You Tell If Upholstery Needs to Be Professionally Cleaned?

Upholstered furniture requires constant maintenance to ensure it remains in pristine condition and doesn't trigger health hazards. But how can you know when to get it professionally cleaned? How frequently should you clean it? What health risks does a soiled piece of furniture cause? How can you get it professionally cleaned? Read on to understand.

Signs Your Furniture Needs Upholstery Cleaning

How can you tell if your upholstery needs to be professionally cleaned? Here are some telltale signs:

  • Allergies: If you or your loved ones experience an increase in allergy symptoms, your upholstery may be the culprit behind it. Over time, your furniture can absorb dust, pet dander, pollen, or other micropollutants. These pollutants get released into the air each time someone uses the furniture. Getting your upholstery professionally deep cleaned by us is the best way to keep allergens at bay.
  • Odor. A well-maintained house often smells pleasant. So, what happens when you smell something unpleasant in the room but cannot pinpoint the source? The likely reason could be upholstery that hasn't been cleaned recently.
  • Worn Down Appearance. Pet hair, body oils, sweat, dirt, dust, and smoke particles can find a permanent home in your furniture. When neglected for a long time, it can dull the natural color of your upholstery and make your furniture look fuzzy or dingy. The best way to determine whether your furniture needs cleaning is to see if the exposed parts have similar color (and texture) as that of the hidden parts.
  • Pet Hair. If you have pets, its natural for them to shed their hair all over your furniture. However, over time, our furry friends leave countless hair strands that end up latching onto the upholstery fabrics. Pet hair can often accumulate in difficult-to-reach areas and demand the cleaning expertise of a professional.
  • Stains. From coffee to food and everything in between, your furniture is no stranger to stains. When neglected long enough, these stains accumulate and ultimately cause you to replace your furniture. Our professional upholstery cleaning services ensure you get stains removed at lower prices rather than spending thousands in replacing a piece of furniture.
  • Discomfort. As your upholstery fiber ages, it wrinkles, stretches, pills, and feels rough when it comes in contact with your skin. This makes your furniture uncomfortable to sit on. By cleaning every nook and cranny of your upholstery, professionals ensure your furniture offers ample comfort.

If you notice any of the aforementioned signs, your furniture needs upholstery cleaning. To ensure these signs don't become permanent, it is critical to reach out to our professionals!

How Often Should Upholstery Be Cleaned?

When it comes to keeping your upholstery in pristine condition, it's critical to tap into two types of cleaning - routine cleaning and professional deep upholstery cleaning from Sunbird Carpet Cleaning Paterson.

Regular cleaning typically involves vacuuming the upholstery once or twice a week to keep it free from dust, allergens, and pollutants. The frequency of cleaning depends on two things: how often a piece of furniture is used and what material it is made of.

If a piece of furniture is placed in a busy area of the house or used more by kids and pets, the frequency of regular vacuuming and deep cleaning increases. While routine cleaning is more of a DIY task, deep cleaning demands the expertise of professionals.

The frequency of cleaning also depends on the type of furniture upholstery. Pieces upholstered with fabric must be vacuumed once a week and professionally deep-cleaned once a year. Leather furniture, on the other hand, requires professional cleaning every six months.

How Can Polluted Air Impact Upholstery?

Be it indoors or outdoors, the air around us is often full of pollutants such as pollen, dust mites, mold spores, and other allergens. The porous nature of upholstery fabric absorbs these harmful pollutants over time. These pollutants eventually find a permanent home in the upholstery, triggering several health issues along the way.

Pollutants like mold spores trigger respiratory diseases and allergies like asthma, nasal irritation, cough, runny noses and more. Dirty upholstery also causes skin infection, itching, and redness each time your skin comes in contact with it.

To keep your loved ones safe and keep your furniture clean and healthy, it is critical to understand how polluted air can impact upholstery and get it deep cleaned immediately.

Are There Any Risks of DIY Upholstery Cleaning?

When it's time to clean your soiled upholstery, its natural to consider choosing the DIY route. Unfortunately, however, there are several risks associated with DIY upholstery cleaning.

Upholstery fabric requires specific cleaning processes and products to ensure no harm comes to the fabric. When performed the wrong way (using too much water, harsh chemical cleaners, etc), the fabric gets damaged beyond repair. DIY processes can also shorten the lifespan of your upholstery.

Dust, mold spores, dust mites, pollen, and other pollutants often find sneaky hiding places which are almost impossible for DIYers to reach. When not addressed immediately, these spaces can become breeding grounds for elements that cause several health issues.
