The average person spends a lot of time inside—90% of their day, in fact. A lot of things found indoors impact our health, and one of the most significant is furniture and upholstery.
If this was a surprising fact for you, here’s a quick explanation as to why. Both upholstery and carpet fibers act as giant filters in our homes. They’re actually quite effective a trapping dirt, allergens, bacteria, and other harmful particles. But as they become too full due to a lack of regular cleaning, they actually become danger zones for our families and pets.
Even though our couches can look clean to the naked eye, they’re actually likely the dirtiest piece of furniture in our homes. This is especially concerning when considering how much time we spend on our couch each day.
Here’s how having your furniture professionally cleaned on a regular basis can contribute to a healthy home.
The Health Benefits Upholstery Cleaning Can Bring
Think about what can settle into upholstery fibers—dirt and oils from our bodies, spills, dust, and more. Beyond regular vacuuming and spot cleaning, professional equipment is needed to thoroughly remove allergens and bacteria.
Chem-Dry uses our revolutionary Hot Carbonating Extraction method to powerfully lift contaminants to the surface with millions of tiny carbonated bubbles. We also use a non-toxic, green-certified solution, The Natural, that won’t leave behind dirt-attracting residue and is safe for your home and the environment. Our process also uses 80% less water than other carpet and upholstery cleaners.
And the best part? Chem-Dry removes 98% of allergens from carpet and upholstery and 89% of airborne bacteria—leaving you with a cleaner, drier, healthier home.
How Often To Professionally Clean Carpet And Upholstery
Waiting until the furniture is noticeably darker, dingy, or stained is waiting too long. In fact, upholstery has likely been contaminating your home for months prior to being visibly soiled.
Aim to vacuum your upholstery at least once a week, or multiple times a week if you have children or pets. Furniture and upholstery should also be professionally cleaned every 6 months, or every 3-4 months if there are kids and animals in the home.
Not only will regular furniture and upholstery cleaning help keep your family healthy and happy, but it can also extend the life of your furniture by removing dirt that can wear down fibers faster.
