Three Reasons to Have Your Couch or Sofa Professionally Cleaned

How long has it been since you’ve had your couch or other upholstered furniture professionally cleaned? While many people know and understand the value of professional carpet cleaning, keeping the sofa clean isn’t on most people’s radar. But it should be. The same pollutants and allergens that affect your carpet also affect your couches and chairs. In this article, we’ll detail the three biggest reasons to call Sams to schedule professional cleaning for your upholstered furniture.

Reason #1: Professional Cleaning Extends the Life of Your Couch

The biggest and most beneficial reason to have your furniture professionally cleaned is an economical one. While wear and tear is a natural part of any piece of furniture’s lifecycle, replacing it can be an expensive, and often unnecessary, solution. The Sams team specializes in bringing worn and dingy furniture, that customers were prepared to discard, back to life. We provide the same level of care and attention to detail when we work with your furniture as we do when cleaning your carpets. How much could you save by getting five or ten more years out of your furniture before replacing it?

Reason #2: Prevent Damage from Cleaning Incorrectly

Not all upholstered furniture pieces are created equally. In fact, there is a myriad of fabric and construction choices furniture makers can use when designing and building their products. And the choices they make dictate how the furniture needs to be cleaned. Using the improper method to attempt to clean the couch on your own could result in permanent and irreversible damage. Leave the decisions (and the work) to the professionals. The Sams team will thoroughly inspect your couch to determine the appropriate cleaning method, and then tackle the project correctly.

Reason #3: It Reduces Allergens Hiding in Your Furniture

Just like your carpet and every other piece of fabric in your home, your upholstered sofa is like a magnet for dust, dirt, pet hair, and other potentially harmful allergens that could be making you sick. Furniture traps pollutants you can’t see. Every time you sit or lay down to relax, the pressure of your body weight reduces and activates those allergens into the air. Professional sofa cleaning from Sams is like a big reset button for your upholstered furniture.
