How often you need to clean your furnitureHave you been cleaning your home for spring? If so, you might have missed one of the most important places you need to clean. If you want to have a clean, healthy home, here’s a fact you should know: the dirtiest item in your home is likely your couch.

Why is your couch so dirty? Well, most people typically remember to wipe down our counters, sweep and mop the floors, and clean our bathrooms. However, many people often forget about their furniture, even though they sit on it almost every day.  

Why You Need to Clean Your Dirty Furniture

Your furniture picks up dust, dirt, grease, oil, and more every day. Think about the amount of time you and your family spend on the couch compared to how often you clean it. As you can imagine you, your kids, and your pets spread all kinds of messes to your furniture every time they sit on it. 

How Often You Should Have Your Upholstery Cleaned

First, it’s important to remember that there’s a big difference between regular vacuuming or spot cleaning and deep furniture cleaning. Surface cleaning is an important part of a regular home cleaning routine, but your vacuum can’t remove everything that has built up in your furniture. Spot cleaning itself is an important step to prevent permanent stains but doesn’t do anything to clean your furniture as a whole. 

In order to get your furniture really clean, you need to have regular professional cleanings. You should have a professional furniture cleaner deep clean all of the furniture in your home at least once or twice a year.

If you have young children or pets, your furniture might benefit from even more frequent cleanings to take care of the messes they make.
