We spend a lot of time on our couches and chairs. Whether it’s your weekend ritual to veg out in front of the TV or if you’ve found a new hobby in isolation, these spaces see a lot more face time than you’d think. And when we wash our sheets at regular intervals, why don’t we wash our couches and chairs regularly as well? We’ve outlined why it’s so important to include upholstery cleaning in your holiday cleaning list.

A safer and more hygienic space

Our bodies naturally shed layers of skin, hair, and other particles. And our homes show evidence of where we spend the most time by absorbing and layering up on these particles in the form of dust and dirt. These areas can also harbour bacteria and allergens as well. If you have anyone in the home that is particularly prone to hay fever or asthma, this could be connected to flareups. Regular cleanings will reduce the number of allergens in the air, making your home cleaner and your household healthier.

Regular upholstery cleaning is more cost-efficient in the long run

Over time, dirt build-up can actually weaken the fibres in your couches and other upholstered items. You may also find that stains are harder to remove with time. This means that either some parts need to be re-upholstered or have a higher cleaning bill in the end. Cleaning these items at the recommended 6-month interval will help to avoid these high-cost bills. It will also leave you with the peace of mind that you’re keeping your furniture clean and maintaining your investment.

Maintain a clean look in your home or office

Have you ever sat down on a couch or armchair when the sun hits just right and you then see a big puff of dust come out? If these items aren’t cleaned regularly, this will occur quite frequently. If you’re thinking of hosting a family dinner for the holiday season, now is a perfect time to improve the appearance of your home.

As the holidays near, we find that a lot of people are wanting to clean their home in time for their friends and relatives to visit. Don’t wait until it’s too late before the holidays.
