There are two general measures that most people use to decide when their they need upholstery cleaning or furniture cleaning. The first measure is does it LOOK dirty, the second measure is does it SMELL bad? Unfortunately these tests don’t always tell the whole story.

Upholstery Cleaning

Most furniture, especially in darker colors, holds up very well to daily wear and tear without showing clear signs of soiling. Aside from obvious spots or stains, Upholstered furniture usually goes years without ever really looking dirty. This is because generally soiling occurs in a fairly even distribution on furniture and over time the memory of what our furniture actually looked like when it was brand new fades.

However, even though it is hard to see the the gradual buildup of embedded soil over time, without regular and thorough professional upholstery cleaning, soil particles are worked into the surface of furniture thus contributing to premature wear and permanent fabric damage, reducing the life of your furniture. In short, it can be said that when it comes to furniture soiling everything is not always what meets the eye.

Fabric Odour

There are many products on the market that are designed to neutralize or mask odours that might be left behind on your furniture by pets, food, smoke or other environmental factors.

It’s also true that most odour neutralizing or masking products do not actually remove the particles that cause the odours in furniture, the particles themselves actually remain on the furniture, either masked by another scent or are neutralized by bonding with the particles of the spray. Either scenario is not ideal.

How do I know that my upholstered furniture needs to be cleaned?

The Three HOWS of upholstery cleaning:

How long has it been since my furniture has been professionally cleaned?

The easiest way to judge if your furniture needs professional furniture cleaning is to think about how long it’s been since the last professional cleaning, or if it has ever been cleaned. With regular maintenance (vacuuming, spot cleaning for spills or stains), furniture generally needs cleaning every 18 to 24 months to maintain it’s best appearance and extend its maximum useful life.

How is my furniture used?

Think about how often you clean chairs or benches made of wood, plastic or other materials. Your upholstered furniture will see about the same amount of day to day dirt or soiling that your other seating areas with similar use would see. For example, if you have upholstered furniture that is being used in an area where people eat, you can count on it seeing roughly the same amount of soiling as what a wooden or plastic chair in an eating area would get.

How is my upholstered furniture used?

Upholstered furniture in a lightly used area of your home such as a formal dining room or seldom used sitting area would need less frequent cleaning than your favourite chair in the family room or the sofa in a children’s play area although even less frequently used upholstered furniture is still subject to gradual soiling that is caused by airborne particles that are a part of everyday life. A simple rule is that if you can smell food cooking that smell is carried through the air and over time has an effect on everything that it touches.
