When was the last time you cleaned your upholstered sofa?

Surprisingly, many homeowners don’t know the answer to this question. If your household is like most households, you probably frequently use your upholstery, but rarely take care of it as you should. 

Couches, chairs, and other upholstered furniture absorb oils, dust, spillages, fur, allergens, and a host of other things on a daily basis. If you belong to the group of not knowing the last time your upholstery was cleaned, then it may be time to consider having it cleaned.

So, how often should you get your upholstery cleaned?

Surface Cleaning

Like your carpet, your upholstery should be regularly vacuumed. Vacuuming the upholstery regularly between cleanings is essential for keeping it free of dirt, dust, and allergens. Surface cleaning can go a long way in maintaining the upholstery and keeping it as dirt-free as possible. This is also an important step before using any deep cleaning methods on the upholstery.

Deep Cleaning

Regular cleaning can help to extend the life of your upholstered furniture, but it is important to not over clean the fabric, because damages may occur.

There are a few factors to consider when determining how often your upholstery should be cleaned. For example, if the upholstery is in a frequently used room or if it is used even more by children and pets, it is apt to get dirty more easily, so deep cleaning more frequently may be necessary.

While routine vacuuming and spot cleaning is a recommended do-it-yourself task, deep cleaning is best left to the professional upholstery cleaners

Call in the Pros

Professional upholstery cleaning typically should be done at least once or twice every two years; unless you notice a musty smell or the upholstery gets frequent abuse by children and pets or if the manufacturer recommends more frequent cleanings.

One reason it is best to hire a professional is that different fabrics require different methods and cleaning products; a professional upholstery cleaner will know which method and products are best for your furniture. Although it is fine to spot clean in order to remove stains, it is important to make sure you use the right cleaning solution in order to prevent permanent stains on the upholstery.
