How Often Should You Clean Your Upholstery?

Upholstered pieces of furniture such as chairs, couches, and couch cushions often absorb dust, body oils, allergens, pet hair, and other materials from day to day. If you can’t remember the last time your upholstery was professionally cleaned or if it has never been cleaned professionally, then now may be the time to consider having a professional cleaning service performed. The fabric on upholstery can easily gather dead skin and loose debris, not to mention accumulation of dirt, whether this piece of furniture gets extensive use or not. At Impressions & Hardwoods, we are your source for upholstery cleaning, along with other cleaning solutions, as well as repair and restoration services for carpets and hardwood floors.

Recommended Upholstery Cleaning Frequency

Now let’s get to the question of how often you should clean your upholstery. Of course there is always the light maintenance cleaning a homeowner should perform on upholstery furniture from time to time, whether in the form of vacuuming or picking up spills or stains. But as far as professional cleaning, if the furniture is not used too often, you may need upholstery cleaning once or twice a year. Once a year may be sufficient if your home has no pets or kids and the furniture is used sparingly. Twice a year may be preferable if pets or kids are present but the furniture is not over used. However, if the usage of your upholstery furniture is more frequent, plus kids and/or pets are present, you may want to increase the frequency of professional deep cleaning in order to keep your upholstered furniture looking well-kept and timeless.
Homes with large families or those that see visitors on a regular basis are likely to have chairs, love seats, and couches that need more frequent professional cleaning due to heavy use. The same would hold true for a commercial office in which people regularly use certain chairs or couches – for example in waiting areas, desk spaces, or other areas with constant room traffic such as these could benefit greatly from regular cleanings.
