Spring Cleaning: Don’t Forget the Furniture!
Springtime is the perfect chance to deep furniture cleaning among your spring cleaning duties! After all, we’ve spent much of the cooler Summerville months inside – probably quite a bit of time parked in front of the TV watching movies or binging on Netflix, right? It only makes sense that as you work to straighten up and freshen up your home for spring and summer, the furniture gets a little TLC too. But, you don’t need to break out the steam cleaner yourself; Clean Masters can do the job for you!
Still not convinced this needs to be on your to-do list? Try these reasons on for size:
Kick Out Allergens
Because springtime allergies are bad enough! Just like your carpet traps dust and allergens, so does your furniture. Professional furniture cleaning isn’t just going to clean the cushions and what you see. Crews will take cushions off the different furniture pieces and clean every square inch using cleaners they know will work for that particular fabric or surface without damaging it. Plus, high-power extractors will suck the water out quickly and effectively, meaning you aren’t left waiting around for days for the surfaces to dry. Having your upholstery and other furniture regularly cleaned simply equals a healthier, cleaner, smarter home.
Did you know soils in your furniture that aren’t removed can actually erode the fabric over time, and even cause tears and holes? If your furniture is fabric, that soil can work its way all the way into the cushions and just continue to accumulate.
Plus, dust mites don’t just live in your mattresses. They live in carpeting and upholstery as well. Dust mites survive by living off dead skin cells, which humans shed in droves every single day, meaning your furniture might be providing a constant food source for those dust mites to thrive, and reproduce.
Those Tough Stains & Fabrics
There are more kinds of fabric out there than we could name in this short blog. And every single one of those fabrics is different. Some are manmade, some are synthetics. Some are easy to clean, some are not. If you are not a fabric expert, you could do some serious damage to the fabric by using the wrong cleaning solution or technique – like stretching, ripping, or discoloring.
Professional furniture cleaners have a firm understanding of the various types of upholstery, and proper techniques for each. They’ll take care to not over-saturate, which could lead to mold or stretching. They will be sure zippers or metal decorative touches aren’t going to rust, and any wood is also properly maintained.
Protect the Warranty
Believe it or not, trying to clean your furniture yourself could mean voiding the manufacturer’s warranty. However, professional furniture cleaning will simply further protect your investment. If you still have the paperwork from when you purchased your furniture, you might want to check to see what the manufacturer says about cleaning.
