Upholstery Cleaning – Residential

All homes have it; that favorite chair or couch where we want to spend time in. Do you know what makes your easy chair or couch so comfortable? It’s not just the size or the shape of the furniture, it’s also the upholstery.

Upholstery is the collective term for the leather covers, fabric, padding, coils, springs or webbing that gives our chairs or couches the softness or the springiness that can make us forget the fact that we are actually resting on a rigid wooden or plastic frame.

Upholstery can be cheap or expensive depending on your taste. Materials can range from traditional ones like straw, burlap, linen and coir to modern ones like vinyl and Dacron. There is even upholstery from exotic animal fur.

Just to be clear upholstery isn’t limited to what stuffs your couch or easy chair; you can also find it in the seats for cars, planes and boats as well as those in bars and restaurants.

What Gets Upholstery Dirty?

Dust – The bane of the home is also the bane of all furniture. All houses have them, even in small quantities. Dust can settle on the surface and even find its way into the tiniest nooks and crannies of your furniture so it will always be there even if you don’t see it.

Dust can cause discoloring to upholstery and over time make what was once bright and vivid look dull. Dust can also cause severe allergic reactions.

Food or Drink Stains – In all likelihood you sit on that chair or couch watching TV shows late into the night. Sometimes you grab a snack to eat while watching. Sometimes it’s not just a snack but a full meal and sometimes the entire meal doesn’t go down your gullet, some of it gets on the couch.

Food stains can leave ugly marks on the upholstery, they can also attract insects or vermin. And they would love to call your home theirs also.

Sweat and Odour – If you love a chair or couch so much, chances are you will spend a lot of time there, and most likely in whatever state of dress. The more your skin makes contact with the surface the more chances your sweat will get on it. Over time this can cause your furniture to give off an odour different from how the material is supposed to smell.

Beware, you may not be able to notice the odour as you become accustomed to it, but your friends or guests surely will.

Pet hair – If you share your home with an animal companion it’s assumed they have access to the same furniture you love. Sometimes they leave behind hair, their odour and sometimes something even worse.

Cleaning the upholstery in your home can take some effort, especially if the material you are working on happens to be quite delicate or expensive. It can also take time, especially if the upholstery has not been cleaned for a while. Wouldn’t you rather let professionals who know what they are doing clean your upholstery for you?

The same goes for office furniture, although the process takes a while because the controlled environment inside the office and also because of the fact that employees are required to work with their shirts or pants on.
