HOW DOES FURNITURE GET DIRTY AND WHY DOESN’T IT SEEM TO SHOW?
DUST is the #1 enemy of upholstered furniture. Gritty matter blows in through open doors and windows and impregnates itself on your furniture cushions and back. Then when you sit on the cushion the oils from your skin compress the dirt into the fabric where it’s almost impossible to remove with vacuum cleaning.
The abrasive action of the grit pressing into the fiber CUTS the fibers like a knife – that’s why your furniture wears out. Then combine this with pollens, food crumbs, dust mites and their nasty fecal pellets…your furniture is literally awash with soil within a the short span of just a year (with an average family). If you have pets and kids your furniture needs to be cleaned thoroughly at least once a year.
BACTERIA AND GERMS are the result of soils that are not removed from furniture on a regular basis. The by-product of decaying living materials decomposing is a foul smell that characterizes furniture that has not been cleaned regularly.
WHY DOESN’T DIRT SHOW? Because today’s fabrics are designed to HIDE dirt with patterns and colors…But just because it doesn’t show doesn’t mean it’s not there.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE MY FURNITURE CLEANED?
If you’re a retired couple and live in your home 6 months a year…probably every 2 or 3 years. If you have an active family with 3-5 kids and pets – I suggest at LEAST twice a year.
