How Often Should You Clean Your Couch & Upholstery?

Jan 6, 2022 | Upholstery Cleaning | 0 comments

It’s finally Spring! The changing season brings crisp air and blossoms. It also brings a subtle reminder to clean our homes. If you want to have a clean, healthy home, here’s a fact you should know: the dirtiest item in your home is likely your couch

So why is that? Well, we typically remember to wipe down our counters, sweep and mop the floors, and clean our bathrooms. But our attention is often diverted from our couches and furniture—which is where most of the dust in our homes settle.

How Often You Should Have Your Upholstery Cleaned 

First, it’s important to remember that there’s a big difference between regular vacuuming or spot cleaning and deep furniture cleaning

Surface cleaning as part of your routine can remove some dust and harmful particles. It can also help preserve your furniture by reducing surface dirt that can wear down your upholstery fibers over time. Spot cleaning can also reduce visible stains as they occur. 

However, there is often much more than meets the eye. In fact, the biggest risk is what you can’t see—deep down dust and allergens that can’t be eliminated without professional cleaning equipment.

In order to maintain a healthy home, your furniture should be professionally cleaned once or twice a year. If there are animals or children in the home, you should clean your upholstery every 3-4 months. 

Professional Upholstery Cleaning Is Important

Regularly vacuuming and spot cleaning your upholstery are important tasks that shouldn’t be overlooked—but deeper upholstery cleaning by professionals is also needed. Nova Clean Chem-Dry can remove deep-down dust and allergens with non-toxic solutions and no excess moisture
