Do it yourself upholstery cleaning is based on knowledge.
Why a Professional Upholstery Cleaning Service May Be Best
Upholstery cleaning is something many people don’t know about and often have a variety of questions about how to do it. Cleaning your upholstery the right way is very important, not just for appearances but for your health as well.
Why should I have my upholstery cleaned?
The number one reason that you should make sure that you have upholstery cleaning done regularly is for your health. While you might think that the reasons are to make the furniture look great, or to improve the life of your furniture, those are benefits in addition to the most important reason. Dust, pollen, mold and bacteria and other allergens and pathogens can get trapped in your upholstery and cause breathing and allergy problems. Having your upholstery cleaned can improve the air and help decrease allergies and other breathing problems that your family may have. But how often should you clean your upholstery?
First off, check the care instructions, as we covered previously. All furniture comes with a manual for the care of your furniture. If you bought your furniture second hand, or you didn’t get a manual, look up the model # and the manufacturer from the label and you should be able to find the information online. Without any further knowledge however, a good time frame to follow is that you should clean your upholstery every one to two years.
What Are the Health Risks if I Neglect Upholstery Cleaning?
There are a variety of health risks that you are potentially exposing yourself and your family to if you neglect upholstery cleaning on a regular basis. Breathing problems, allergies, and even skin conditions such as eczema and contact dermatitsis can be caused by upholstery that has not been cleaned. Neglecting upholstery cleaning may also result in your family being sick more often as well.
While it may be possible to do upholstery cleaning on your own, it is actually best to have a professional upholstery cleaning service do the upholstery cleaning for you. Professional upholstery cleaning companies have the right combination of experience, equipment, and chemicals. While it probably would be cheaper to do it yourself, more than likely you would not get rid of the allergens and other nasty things deep in your upholstery, and that is the primary reason for having upholstery cleaning done anyway. Spend the money and have a professional upholstery cleaning service in Manhattan Beach do the job for you.
