Why does my couch smell bad?

If you’ve clicked onto this blog from having read the title, then chances are you’re in the same situation as most. Having a couch and not knowing how to look after it properly can result in some unwanted occurances.

In this blog, we’ll look at why it might be that your couch doesn’t smell too great and what we recommend to do about it. 

Why does my couch smell bad?

When it comes to upholstery, there could be a whole myriad of reasons as to why it develops an unpleasant odour. The most common that we’ve come across is through a lack of proper care. 
When you take a step back and look at how many times your couch is used, and usually what happens before and during someone’s time on the couch, you can start to get a clearer idea of what’s occurring.
The busiest times for our couches is generally in the mornings and afternoons/evenings when the family is back home from their day out. When someones sits on a couch without first showering, all the germs, bacteria and other nasties on them can get transferred across to the material, and if not cleaned properly, will stay there. At first this may not seem like too much of an issue, but as you start to multiply that by multiple people, multiple times a day and then for multiple hours at a time, you really start to visualise how quickly bad odours can start developing.

And don’t forget about the animals …

If you’ve got pets at home that are allowed up on the furniture, then this can be another reason that your couch may have started developing a strange smell. Furthermore, when food or drink is consumed and then unknowingly spilt on your upholstery, this can continue adding to the problem. 

What we recommend

Looking after your upholstery doesn’t have to be a huge, regular task that’s undertaken. It can be as simple as scheduling a professional clean once every 6-months or so. You can do a few things to prolong the time between cleans which includes:

  • Prevent food and drink consumption on the couch
  • No pets jumping up
  • Try to encourage showers or clean clothes before getting comfy for too long
