It’s hard to understand how some people draw a line when it comes to upholstery cleaning. They clean the drapes and the carpets but leave the dirt and dust mites in their furniture. They don’t seem to realize that their home isn’t really clean unless the upholstery has been thoroughly cleaned, too.
Dirt settles into the upholstery fibers and makes a comfortable home for tens of thousands of dust mites. Viruses and bacteria can live deep inside the textile fibers, surviving for more than a month. In fact, your upholstery might be as bacteria-ridden as the garbage can before it’s cleaned.
When you consider the fact that everyone sheds more than one million skin flakes every hour, you know that some are falling onto and into your upholstery. Thousands of mites are fed by those flakes. Fleas and bed bugs also make themselves at home in the fibers, behind cushions and inside the crevices of the seams.
Environmental pollutants make their way indoors and settle on everything inside your home. Allergens become trapped inside the weave of materials and contaminate the air that’s breathed by every member of your family. Incomplete or improper cleaning can cause allergies to worsen. Yes, dirty upholstery can make you physically ill.
Cigarette smoke contains carcinogens that build up on every household surface. It isn’t enough to clean the window treatments and the carpets.
