Cleaning Can Save Your Life

Dear Francine,

My husband and I are trying to schedule regular professional cleaning of our upholstery because it is so easy to lose track of our last cleaning. We use a small vacuum to take the odds and sods off our furniture, but is that enough? If I need to have my upholstery cleaned professionally, how often should I arrange that?

Thanks for your e-mail, ICU! There are a number of reasons why you would want to have your upholstery professionally cleaned, which is why Sparkling Clean offers Dry Foam Cleanings for all your upholstery in Brantford, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton, and surrounding areas. Fortunately, when it comes to scheduling, that’s entirely up to you. It can certainly help to have these things penciled in, so keep an organizer or even program the dates of your past and planned future cleanings into a calendar on your phone. Those are easy ways to keep on top of things.

One of the most common questions we get asked is why you should clean your household items professionally when they’re not visibly dirty. After all, you vacuum your upholstery every few weeks, why bother with extra work?

Arranging to have your upholstery cleaned may seem like extra work, but the reward for that extra work might save your life. Over time, the furniture in your home starts to accumulate detritus particles in the form of food crumbs, hair, pet dander, and other allergens. The build-up of all these particles can compromise anyone’s breathing, but the risks are greater if anyone in your home suffers from asthma or breathing difficulties. Cleaning your upholstery professionally at least once per year allows you and your loved ones to literally breathe easier by removing these particles from your furniture. Getting your upholstery cleaned regularly keeps the air fresh in your home.

As for how often you should arrange a professional cleaning depends on how the level of activity in your home, ICU. If it’s just you and your husband, you can have your upholstery professionally cleaned as little as once per year. If you have a “high traffic” home with kids or pets, you should consider having your upholstery cleaned every six months.
