Is your living room starting to look dingey, no matter how much you declutter and vacuum? Is your armchair just looking kinda… sad? One solution you might not have thought of – get your upholstery cleaned! You’ll be amazed at how much of a difference clean upholstery makes when it comes to your home’s look and feel. Here are some common ways to know that it’s time to get your upholstery cleaned.

It’s Been a Year

The IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) says that it’s best to get your upholstery cleaned every 12-24 months. And if you can’t remember the last time you got your upholstery cleaned, that’s a great indicator! 

A great trick for keeping up on your upholstery cleaning is to tack the service onto your carpet cleanings. That way, you’ll have fresh and clean carpets AND upholstery every 6 months! And if you don’t book a cleaning for a year, we’ll also reach out and remind you.

The Holidays Did You Dirty

During the holidays, your home is filled with family, friends, and good times, right? And with family, friends, and good times, there’s dirt and food and spills sometimes. Life is kinda messy sometimes, as it should be. It’s the mark of a good time! 

However, it’s important to get these spots taken care of quickly; the longer they sit, the more you run the risk of permanently damaging your upholstery. Oily spots can oxidize and actually wear through, or alter, the dye in your upholstery. So, if your upholstery took a hit, and has developed some spots, it’s definitely time to get them cleaned!

Your Furry Family Member Loves the Couch

They’re cute and cuddly, but also hairy and dirty sometimes. Maybe they got up on the couch after bathtime last week and now it smells like a wet dog. With regular upholstery cleanings, the hair and allergens can stay at a minimum; everybody wins! 

And in the meantime between cleanings, lay down a cozy blanket that your pet can lie on, keeping a barrier between them and your couch or armchair. You don’t have to choose between clean upholstery and being cozy with your pet. Cuddle on pet lovers, cuddle on!

Your Nephew Had an Accident

With family coming and going for the holidays, and in the hustle and bustle of it all, little CJ didn’t know where the bathroom was and had an accident on your couch. A professional upholstery cleaning gives peace of mind that the couch is safe to sit on and that the urine smell isn’t going to linger.
