Did you know that the average person spends about 90% of their time indoors? Have you ever considered how the furniture and upholstery you sit on everyday could be impacting your health?
Here’s a quick breakdown: upholstery and carpet act like giant air filters in our homes, trapping allergens, bacteria, and harmful particles. This is actually a good thing because furniture helps to keep the air in our homes healthier. But here’s the catch: just like with any filter, our upholstery can become too full.
In fact, the couch is often the dirtiest piece of furniture in our homes, despite looking clean to the naked eye. To remain effective at keeping our homes healthy, furniture must be deep cleaned regularly.
Health Benefits Of Regular Furniture And Upholstery Cleaning
We can see how dirt, dust, and grime from our bodies, regular spills, and even just dust settles around the house and into our upholstery fibers. Powerful extraction equipment from professionals can lift particles, allergens, bacteria, and odor to the surface of your furniture and whisk it away, leave you with a healthier home.
Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonation Extraction Process is unique when it comes to home health. Our green-certified solution, The Natural, works with the power of carbonation to gently yet powerfully lift harmful contaminants to the surface with millions of active cleaning bubbles. Next, the particles are removed for good with hot water extraction.
The best part? Our solution is eco-friendly and non-toxic—meaning it’s safe for your children and pets but tough on stains. We don’t leave behind dirt-attracting residue that can leave you with worse stains down the road, and our fabric protector shields your upholstery fibers from future soiling.
Chem-Dry removes 98% of allergens from carpet and upholstery, and 89% of airborne bacteria—making our Hot Carbonation Extraction Process the clear choice for a happy, healthy home.
How Often You Should Professionally Clean Upholstery
A lot of people only clean their upholstery when they see it noticeably darker, dingier, or stained. Waiting until this point is too late, as your furniture has likely already been contaminating your home for months prior to being visibly dirty.
Regular furniture and upholstery cleaning also extends the life of your furniture because dirt and other particles can wear down your upholstery fibers faster. Regular cleaning will prolong your precious furniture investments.
It’s a good rule of thumb to vacuum your upholstery once a week—more often if you have pets or kids. In order to keep your furniture and upholstery free from harmful allergens and bacteria, you should have it professionally cleaned every 6 months.
Definitely clean your upholstery no less than once per year, and up to 3-4 times per year depending on traffic and if you have pets or kids in the home.
