Many retail stores try to up sell their customers into buying after care products when they purchase upholstered furniture. Items like protectants, conditioners, and cleaners can be a profit builder for retail shops. However, when it comes to actually giving instructions on upholstery cleaning, most retail stores fail.
As a reputable upholstery cleaning service provider in Stevenson Ranch CA, Exxtreme Carpet, Tile and Grout Cleaning feels responsible for educating their clients about how to properly maintain their upholstered furniture. And the first tip we give is to set a proper upholstery cleaning maintenance schedule. This is the best and only way to ensure that you get the most out of your investment.
According to the IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, Restoration, Certification), upholstery should be professionally cleaned every twelve to twenty four months. Obviously, this depends on the usage and soiling condition. Furthermore, if people with medical conditions such as respiratory issues live in the house, then professional cleaning services should be hired much more often.
Upholstery is known to filter dust and other air particles and trap them in the porous material. If these particles are not removed in a timely manner, they will destroy the fibers of your upholstered furniture, damaging it forever. That’s why homeowners should clean their upholstery on a regular basis, at least once a week. However, regular vacuuming won’t be enough in order to remove all dirt and debris from deep down in your upholstery fibers. For this, you need steam cleaning machines.
Most upholstery cleaning service providers carry truck mounted steam cleaning equipment.
These machines are able to remove oil contaminates, dry soil and other stains, without letting them get back into the air, which would cause a potential indoor environmental pollution issue. That is one of the main reasons why people who are concerned about the quality of their indoor air should hire professional cleaning services more often.
