Cleaning your sofa is something you should do yourself regularly. If you’re vacuuming your living room, it’s a good idea to vacuum your sofa while you’re at in order to get rid of any crumbs or hairs. Wiping down a leather sofa now and again could also be useful for getting rid of any dirt or food stains.
But just how often should you invest in professional sofa cleaning? Most modern sofas can actually benefit from being professionally cleaned once per year. This could be particularly the case if you’ve got kids or pets – your sofa could be more prone to collecting dirt and hair in these situations. The guide below explains exactly what the benefits of annual cleaning are and why you should hire a professional rather than doing it yourself.
Why invest in annual sofa cleaning?
Regularly cleaning your sofa yourself can be worthwhile for keeping on top of the basic dirt and grime that can accumulate from week to week. However, an annual deep clean is often needed to get fully into all the creases and to make sure that the fabric is thoroughly decontaminated.
Without an annual deep clean, your sofa could start to become a breeding ground for bacteria. This bacteria may live in the crevices or deep within the fabric and exposure to it could start to make you and your family ill. By annually deep cleaning your sofa, you can make sure that it’s kept as hygienic as possible.
Annual deep cleaning can also have other benefits such as getting rid of allergens. A few common household allergens include dust mites, pollen and animal fur – these allergens can often end up embedded into the fabric of your sofa. If you or someone in your household suffers from a dust allergy, a pet allergy or hayfever, an annual clean could help to prevent you constantly being exposed to these allergens.
The other big benefit of cleaning your sofa annually is to keep your sofa smelling fresh. Both bacteria and other contaminants such as tobacco smoke could start to give your sofa a funky smell after time. An annual deep clean can rid of any bad odours.
Why hire professional upholstery cleaners?
An annual deep clean is not something you should do yourself. Many people who attempt to deep clean their sofa can end up doing damage to it by not using the right products. This could include creating permanent marks by using the wrong chemicals (such as bleach stains on leather). Even soaking fabrics with water can have harmful side effects if you don’t know what you’re doing – water may get deep into the sofa where it could contribute to mould growth, causing your sofa to smell worse and making it even less hygienic by exposing you to mould spores.
Hiring a professional sofa cleaning service can help to ensure that your sofa is not damaged in the process. A professional company will know how to treat specific types of stains on specific fabrics. Such a company will also know how to deep clean your sofa with water without causing mould growth in the process.
Many households that choose professional upholstery cleaners can end up extending the life of their furniture. This reduces the cost and hassle of having to replace your sofa every few years. Even if you do decide that you no longer like the style of your sofa, professional annual sofa cleaning can ensure that it is kept in good condition so that you have the option of selling it and getting some extra cash. It’s a win-win situation.
