Here’s a fun fact: the average person actually spends about 90% of their time indoors. Really makes you think more about the environment you’re immersed in, doesn’t it? Have you ever considered how furniture and upholstery affect indoor air quality and the overall health of your home?

This might not be something you’ve considered before. But here’s why you should.

Upholstery and carpet are giant filters for bacteria, allergens, and other contaminants. This actually makes our homes healthier—at least for a while. But a big problem strikes when these “filters” become full.

Even furniture that looks clean to the naked eye could be a danger zone. In order to have a healthy home and eliminate allergens and bacteria, furniture and other upholstery need to be professionally cleaned.

Furniture And Upholstery Cleaning Is Essential For A Healthy Home

Think about how much time your family spends on the couch. It’s easy to see how dirt, dust, body oils, and spills settle into the fibers of our upholstery. Professional equipment is required to lift soil, allergens, bacteria, and pesky odors from your furniture.

Chem-Dry has taken it a step further when it comes to a healthy home. Our Hot Carbonation Extraction Process utilizes the power of carbonation to lift stains to the surface without the excessive amounts of water that steam cleaners rely on. Our green-certified solution, The Natural, is non-toxic and safe for your children and pets. Our process won’t leave behind sticky stain-attracting residue, and our unique fabric protector can shield furniture from future stains.

With Chem-Dry, you’ll be left with a cleaner, healthier, drier home.

And the best part? Chem-Dry’s revolutionary cleaning method removes 98% of allergens from carpet and upholstery and 89% of airborne bacteria. See the results for yourself in this recent independent Home Healthy Study.

How Often To Clean Upholstery

If you wait until your upholstery is noticeably stained, discolored, or worn before having it professionally cleaned, you’ve waited too long. At this point, your furniture has likely already been spreading allergens and bacteria in your home for months prior to being visibly soiled.

Routine upholstery cleaning is not only important for the dangers you can’t see, but also to preserve the appearance of your furniture. One of the most effective ways to extend the life of your furniture is to prevent dirt and other particles from wearing down the fibers. Professional upholstery cleaning will help you get more years out of your furniture.

Make it a habit to vacuum your upholstery once a week. If you have pets or kids, it’s wise to up the frequency to twice a week.

Your upholstery should be professionally cleaned no less than once a year. In order to remove allergens, bacteria, and toxins, we recommend furniture and upholstery cleaning every 6 months.

You should increase your furniture cleanings to 3-4 times per year if you have pets or kids, or if your furniture endures heavy traffic.
