You need to know when to call a professional upholstery cleaner, as your furniture can easily become damaged if you don’t clean it properly.
How often you use your furniture determines how often you should have it professionally cleaned; most professional furniture cleaners recommend every one or two years. A really deep clean is vital to ensure that your furniture looks its best.
Should you call a professional or clean your furniture yourself?
You may not be able to get your hands on the professional cleaning equipment that most pro furniture cleaning companies have. It can be well worth paying for the services of a professional cleaning company as most companies invest a lot of money in making sure they use the best possible products and techniques.
However, your furniture can be damaged if the right upholstery cleaning equipment isn’t used, and if you choose to rent cleaning equipment instead to save money, always make sure it is in excellent condition.
Risks of Cleaning Your Upholstery Yourself
It may not be worth the money you save to try to clean your own furniture, especially if you have a valuable piece or a piece you have just purchased. Always make sure you are using the right cleaner before you begin any cleaning job, as different types of cleaners should be used on different materials. Test a small piece of material with a cleaning solution before using that solution n the entire piece of furniture.
It may pay you to hire a professional upholstery cleaning company if you simply don’t have the time to clean your own furniture thoroughly, as most of us don’t. It’s well worth comparing the time it will take you to clean your furniture against the cost of paying someone to do it for you.
However, before you contact a professional to come to your home and clean your sofa, consider the following factors.
You can help to protect your valuable furniture to some extent by rotating the cushions regularly and protecting the arms by using the fabric arm caps. If you have small children or pets in your home, you probably vacuum the floors fairly regularly, and you should vacuum your upholstery just as often, especially in a high traffic area of your home.
If you spill something on your furniture, clean it up immediately to avoid a stain. Remember that different types of material require a different cleaner, so always use the appropriate one. Of course, you should always follow the instructions on any cleaning product you are using, and find a hidden area of the upholstery to test any cleaning product on before using it.
