Most people wouldn’t think to relate upholstery cleaning to their health. But, the truth is upholsteries, just like curtains and carpets, can absorb a lot of allergens, grease and other pollutants. The allergens in the fabric get released when due to different movements-like when you wiggle or sit on the couch, stamp your feet, lay down and more or move your couch any other way.
It can eventually lead to polluted household air which when comes in contact with you, your kids or your pets, can have allergic reactions.
Also, inhaling allergens is bad for your lungs in the long run. So, you might just see your sofa all clean just sitting there harmlessly, it is harming you. If you live in a particularly polluted area or do not have proper ventilation in your kitchen, this problem can get more severe.
So, what does it all boil down to? It all comes down to the importance of upholstery cleaning services which sadly many people have still not realised.
It is important that you have your furniture upholstery cleaned professionally at least twice a year and that you vacuum/brush or regularly clean your upholstery furniture once or twice a week, at the least.
Upholstery cleaning for better Health
Treating Allergies with steam cleaning- sounds a bit off? It might sound unusual but is quite practical. Steam cleaning uses heat combined with the force of speeding water which can not only take off grease and other allergens but also kill bacteria and germs.
So, one of the best ways to clean upholstery for better health is with a steam cleaner. If you don’t have one, you can always rent one. Or, even better, have a professional do it for you.
Vacuuming upholsteries, pillows, cushions, carpets and curtains once every week or two is also a great way to decrease the number of allergens in your household.
Why deep cleaning your upholstery is important?
Dust and other allergens can get deep inside the web of fabrics in the upholstery which means you have hidden allergens in your household. The dust and grime that settle inside the fabrics over time can be embedded deeply and released slowly over time. Vacuuming will not be able to take it all out. However, professionally deep cleaning your upholstery can.
Professional upholstery cleaners have equipment with high suction power, the right cleaning products and experience to execute a successful upholstery deep cleaning of your couch, sofa or any other upholstered furniture.
Given that there are hundreds of DIY deep cleaning upholstery videos floating around on the internet, it is natural for many to think they can just do it themselves. However, practicality is trickier than that.
One of the biggest problems people face when DIY deep cleaning upholstery is not being able to suction off the excess cleaning product or moisture/water off the upholstery. That leads to your couch staying wet for over two days which can lead to the build-up of mildew and the fabric coming apart, fading or decolourization.
Professional deep cleaning of your upholstery goes much smoother, all you have to do is call the professional upholstery cleaning service. You can ensure your good health with these ideas.
