Are My Couches Dirty?

Additionally, while you go extended periods without upholstery cleaning you will end up accumulating dander, allergens, dust, and mites. If you are trying to figure out if your upholstered furniture needs cleaning, simply take a white cloth and run it along the padded seats. If it your cloth is gray, black, or dingy you can be certain that it is time for a good cleaning.

How Often Should I Get My Couches Cleaned?

There is no simple cut and dry answer for this. Getting professional upholstery cleaning done too often can lead to fading and can even ruin the fabric with time. But not cleaning them often enough may lead to embarrassing stains. For most homes having pros visit and clean upholstery once a year is adequate.

However, if you have several children, pets, or regular visits from friends, once a year is not enough. Twice a year or even at the start of each season might be more helpful. This will prevent stains and marks from regular wear and tear to appear. For instance, if the man of the house has a favorite chair, the headrest may grow a dark spot over time. The dog drooling while napping in the same spot every day is another example. Whatever the case, be sure to get regular upholstery cleaning done in order to keep your home looking good.
