There’s no better way to keep your furniture clean, healthy, and looking great than to have regular professional upholstery cleaning services performed. New Jersey Upholstery can get dirty very quickly, and even if it looks alright, it may be contributing to unhealthy indoor air. Taking care of your upholstery is a major priority, and when you do need to have it cleaned, you can rely on the professionals at All Clean Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning for prompt and professional service.
Still, knowing exactly when and how often you need to clean your New Jersey home’s furniture can be difficult. The frequency of your upholstery cleaning depends on a number of different factors, but you should definitely have them cleaned before any visual signs of wear-and-tear become apparent. Deep-deep soil that settles in the fibers of your upholstery can cause your carpeting to break down prematurely, which will shorten its lifespan. For that reason, it’s very important that you think of professional carpet cleanings as a necessary part of maintaining a carpet, just like changing the oil in your car.
Here are a few things to consider when you’re deciding how often you should have your upholstery cleaned:
Do You Have Children?
Young children love to play outdoors and run around inside—and then sit right down on the couch. They also frequently spill drinks and food, and they might allow a crayon or marker to slip onto the furniture every once in a while. If you have children, you know how that cleaning up after them is one of your biggest tasks.
Our professionals recommend that if children live in your New Jersey home, then you should have your upholstery cleaned around once every 9 months.
Do You Have Pets?
We all love our pets, but unfortunately, the dander, hair, and dirt and dust that they bring into your New Jersey home make it necessary to have your upholstery cleaned once every 6 months. Of course, there’s some variation here, based on whether your pets are well trained enough to stay off the sofa, and whether or not they tend to stay outdoors. You can start with 6 months as a base line, then determine the frequency based on those factors.
If your pet has any bladder or urine issues, you may need to have your upholstery cleaned even more frequently.
The Number of People in Your Home
If you live alone or with one partner, you may be able to go up to two years before it’s necessary to have your upholstery cleaned. You’ll need to judge the amount and the kind of traffic that carpeting has to take, then determine what’s best for your New Jersey home.
Without pets or children, the frequency of necessary upholstery cleaning significantly diminishes. However, it’s still important to make sure your upholstery is cleaned before any significant damage is done.
