Have you ever wondered why some areas in the home are so easy to keep clean, but the couch isn’t one of them?

Think about it—we scrub bathrooms, vacuum floors, and wipe down kitchen counters on the regular. But when was the last time you cleaned and sanitized your couch?

Don’t worry, you’re not the only one who overlooks this most-used item in the home. But learning what nasty dangers likely live in your couch can help motivate you to keep your upholstery clean.

 

#1 – Allergens And Dust Mites

Dust mites (and their shedded skins and feces) thrive in soft upholstery fibers. As if this isn’t gross enough, these can irritate our airways, causing allergies, asthma, and other serious respiratory issues.

Having your upholstery cleaned once or twice a year can keep these allergens under control. Plus, Chem-Dry improves indoor air quality by removing 98% of allergens from carpet and upholstery and 89% of airborne bacteria.

 

#2 – Bacteria And Viruses

Germs are easily spread on upholstery through daily living. Because couches are such high traffic areas where our children and animals often sit, eat, and play, they can be significant danger zones in the home.

That’s why it’s crucial for soft upholstery fibers to be professionally sanitized twice each year to keep illnesses from spreading.

 

#3 – Mold

Soft upholstery fibers absorb moisture like a sponge and create the perfect environment for mold to grow. Mold is a health concern because it’s unsanitary, but also because it can trigger asthma and other respiratory issues.

 

#4 – Oils And Grease

Grease and oils from food, messy fingers, and bodies transfer easily to couches and other upholstery. This attracts dirt and stains and also creates areas for germs to collect.

Routine upholstery cleaning can keep this unavoidable accumulation of oils at bay, keep stains and germs under control, and extend the life of your furniture.

 

#5 – Toxic Chemicals And Harmful Particles

Whatever is floating around in the air—like cleaning chemicals, paint particles, dust, and more—will inevitably find its way onto your furniture. Natural, green-certified upholstery cleaning from Chem-Dry removes these skin-irritating chemicals and particles, and won’t deposit more toxins in your home.
