The Great Furniture Debate of 2016: Reupholster, Replace, or Clean the Couch

upholstery cleaning servicesOkay, so maybe this debate isn’t that big in comparison to if the Falcons are going to win the Super Bowl next year, but nonetheless, if your couch is looking a little dingy, it might be a conversation that has come up once or twice.

It can be hard to imagine that a well-loved piece of furniture can be effectively cleaned, but it is true! Plus, choosing to have your upholstery professionally cleaned by a company like Sincerely Yours is probably going to save you a pretty penny over full replacement, or even reupholstering by the time you pay for the work, the fabric, and the other necessary materials.

Still need a little convincing? Here are some other reasons going the professional cleaning route is a good idea:

  1. Upholstery is a breeding ground for bacteria and allergens.

Reading that sentence might make you want to immediately go out any buy new furniture altogether. But with a routine cleaning regimen, that is not necessary, and neither is reupholstering.

Unlike leather that can be wiped clean, the fibers and weave in upholstery absorb and collect dust, oils, dander, and other particles. Over time, all of these items can not only make the fabric look and feel dirty, but also break down the fibers in the couch and cause the fabric to wear out sooner.

  1. Protecting your warranty.

When you initially purchased your furniture, did you take the time to read the fine print within the manufacturer’s warranty? There is a chance that trying to clean your furniture yourself could void your warranty! That is because, like we said above, every fabric is so different and a cleaner you pluck from a store shelf could actually hurt the fabric. Professional cleaners have experience will all kinds of materials and will know what will and will not work in every situation.

Professional furniture cleaning will simply further protect your investment. If you still have the paperwork from when you purchased your furniture, you might want to check to see what the manufacturer says about cleaning.

  1. Extend the life of your furniture.

Like we already mentioned, if your furniture is fabric, soil can work its way all the way into the cushions and just continue to accumulate. Want to get even grosser? Dust mites don’t just live in your mattresses. They live in carpeting and upholstery as well. Dust mites survive by living off dead skin cells, which humans shed in droves every single day, meaning your furniture might be providing a constant food source for those dust mites to thrive, and reproduce.

Are those enough reasons for you? Professional cleaning techniques combined with top of the line cleaning products, solutions, and equipment, mean you will feel like you have new furniture! Deciding to have the furniture in your Columbia-area home professionally cleaned by Sincerely Yours means you can sit back and relax, and smell the clean!
