If your home is like most households, you probably frequently use your upholstery, but rarely take care of it like you should. When was the last time you cleaned your upholstered sofa? Many homeowners don’t know the answer to this question. Couches chairs and other upholstered furniture absorbs oils, dust, spills, fur and allergens. Regular cleaning can help to extend the life of your upholstered furniture.

Like your carpet, your upholstery should be regularly vacuumed. Vacuuming the upholstery weekly is essential for keeping it free of dirt, dust and allergens. Surface cleaning can go a long way in maintaining the upholstery and keeping it as dirt-free as possible. This is also an important step before using any deep cleaning methods on the upholstery.

There are a few factors to consider when determining how often your upholstery should be cleaned. For example, if the upholstery is in a frequently used room or if it is used even more by children and pets, it is apt to get dirty more easily, so deep cleaning more frequently may be necessary. Professional upholstery cleaning typically should be done at least once a year; unless you notice a musty smell, or the upholstery gets frequent abuse by children and pets.

Cleaning the upholstery is best left to the professionals. One reason to hire a professional is that different fabrics require different methods and cleaning products; a professional upholstery cleaner will know which method and products are best for your furniture.
