How often should I clean my Upholstery?

quality upholstery cleaning

Your home is your haven; it is somewhere you want to go to and block the rest of the world out and chill. This means your lounge or living area is the most used room in your home.

Your busy lifestyle means your Upholstery may not get the care it should do and, in some cases, means you will be replacing it more often than usual.

Can I ask when the last time you cleaned your Sofa, dining chairs or even your Rugs was? More often than not the answer is never!

Regular cleaning can save you so much money in the long run, so here is how often you should get your soft furnishings cleaned.

Light Cleaning

Your Upholstery and soft furnishings should be vacuumed regularly, almost as much as you vacuum, we at Art of Clean Cambridge recommend a Sebo vacuum for this.

By vacuuming regularly, you will remove most dust, dirt, animal hairs and even dead skin all these things can be responsible for allergies so is always a good idea to remove them by a simple vacuum.

This is also important for when you do any heavier cleaning on your soft furnishings.

Heavy Clean

You need to think about how often your soft furnishings are used to determine how frequently you need to get them cleaned.

If they are used often by Children or pets or have a heavy traffic flow, then they will attract dirt and grime more easily so a heavier clean will be certainly needed.

We at Art of Clean Cambridge recommend a heavier duty clean by a professional is done at least once a year, this will save you in the long run.

It is always best to leave the cleaning to the professionals because they will know the method of clean needed for different types of fabrics and can take the care it needs for the best results.
