Love to sit and relax on your favorite clean sofa? You’ve taken naps on it, you’ve eaten on it, you’ve had your morning coffee on it, you’ve had your pets on it, what else?
Because you have spent so much time on your sofa, it is very important to have your upholstery furniture cleaned as often as carpet cleaning. There may be dirt, dust, food particles, pet fur, bacteria as well as germs living in your sofa that you should want to get rid of.
Here are some reasons why you need a clean sofa!
1. Air quality
Did you know that your upholstery furniture releases dust, dirt, dead skin, germs and bacteria into the air of your home every time you sit or move around? Yup, this is true! Sofa that is uncleaned release these into the air which of course affects the quality of air in your home, which also causes the house to be dusty. To avoid your sofa from releasing dust and allergens into the air, deep cleaning your sofa regularly is a must.
Dust and allergens that are being released into the air can cause allergies and breathing problems. Those who are sensitive to dust may be sneezing often and this could be one of the reasons. Dirt, dust mites, pet fur, bacteria, mold and allergens can get into the fibers of your sofa and sit there till it gets thoroughly cleaned. Deep cleaning your sofa often can help get rid of these unwanted irritants and help keep your home and family healthy and illness-free.
Have you ever noticed the nasty odor your sofa gives out? That is because you probably have not cleaned your sofa! When was the last time you gave a thorough clean? Your sofa is probably the ultimate place where a lot of things happen. From having family discussions to having meals and watching tonnes of movies there, even your pets love the couch! Besides that, cooking odor from the kitchen can also stick onto your upholstery furniture which gives that unpleasant smell. Deep cleaning your sofa regularly can help remove this odor and make it look and feel fresher!
How your couch looks depends on how you take care of it. Most of the time, we have stubborn stains on the sofa that are there due to spillage of food or drink and we often cover them using a blanket especially when we have guests coming over. The best solution for this is to hire a professional cleaning service to help you clean your sofa as cleaning dirt and grime on the sofa on your own may make things worse.

5. Make your furniture last longer
Furniture can be very expensive and you don’t want to keep having to invest in a new one. Whether it’s just a small tear, spilled wine or dirt, cleaning your sofa professionally often can help your furniture extend its life so you don’t have to keep buying a new one.
How often do you need to clean your sofa?
This actually depends on how often your sofa gets dirty. At least once a year should be sufficient. However, if you have kids or pets at home, it’s best to clean it as regularly as 3 to 4 times a year as they can get pretty dirty quickly.
