Life can get crazy and there is a lot for you to keep up with your family and around your home. Not to mention all the areas that you know should probably be cleaned, but there’s just not enough time in the day! This is why it’s so easy to overlook furniture and upholstery cleaning.


People most often tackle the bathroom or the kitchen when they find time to clean. Why do you think that is? Well, it’s a lot easier to tell when things have gotten a little out of hand or messy in these areas. Also, it’s a common idea that your bathroom is the most bacteria-ridden location in your home, so of course, that’s going to be your first go-to cleaning spot. We aren’t telling you to stop cleaning your bathroom, but we do have something to tell you. Your couch can have as many germs as your toilet seat.

While it’s clearly important to keep your bathrooms and carpets clean, chances are you spend more time hanging out on your couch. Here are just a few of the reasons why it’s so important to keep this central piece in your home clean and sanitized.


#1 – Preserve the appearance and lifespan of your furniture.


One of the main draws for upholstery cleaning is a desire for your furniture to look its best. A thorough upholstery cleaning removes dirt and any other particles that hang out in your furniture. Not only will your furniture’s fibers last longer, but a clean couch makes a huge difference in the look and feel of your home. We often forget what our favorite couch looked like the day we bought it until we freshen it up with a cleaning and realize how dirty it really was.


However, it’s important to remember the importance of cleaning your furniture long before it appears noticeably dirty.


#2 – Protect the health of your family.


Even more important than the appearance of your home is a safe environment for your children and pets to live.


Bacteria, dirt, mold, dust mites, fleas, odors, and a variety of allergens make homes in the soft fibers of your furniture. They easily move to you, your family, and your pets every time you sit down on your couch to relax. This can cause a variety of health risks if not taken care of.


It makes sense, right? After all, shouldn’t the place your family spends the majority of their time be safe? Not a potential danger zone?


#3 – Improve the air quality in your home.


It’s clear that some pretty nasty organisms live comfortably in furniture and then move to our bodies. However, when these contaminants make their way into the air you breathe, the air quality of your home is diminished. This then puts you and your family at risk for a variety of respiratory issues.
