3 Reasons to Schedule a Furniture and Drapery Cleaning

Sofa cleaning

Whether you’re concerned about appearances, cleanliness, or getting the most out of your purchases, regular furniture and drapery cleaning is a good idea. Fort Wayne homeowners can experience many benefits from hiring a cleaning company every 12 to 18 months to clean their drapery and upholstery. Some of the upholstered pieces in your home may be family heirlooms, so keeping them in good condition will allow you to pass them down to future generations. If a deep cleaning is required to remove stains, odors, pet fur, and common household allergens from your upholstery and drapery, schedule a professional cleaning to ensure that the cleaning is performed correctly.

Stains, Dirt, and Discoloration

If you use your furniture regularly, dirt will collect in the fabric fibers, and stains will blotch upholstered surfaces. Mild discoloration can be just as frustrating as bold stains, but hope is not completely lost. Having a cleaning company examine and remove the stains will save you the heartache you might feel if your DIY stain removal method goes awry.

Harmful Allergens

Upholstery and drapery are notorious for accommodating allergens like dust, dander, and pollen. Movement often releases these air pollutants, causing symptoms such as watery and itchy eyes, sneezing, and coughing. Even if you clean your cushions and drapes regularly, annual deep cleaning from a professional is recommended because the allergens are so prevalent.

Pet Fur

Many homeowners have intentions of training their pets to stay off of furniture, but sometimes snuggling with your furry companions on a cozy chair or couch is more important than keeping fur off of your upholstery. However, when your pet hops off of your lap, you may be shocked at the amount of fur left on your clothes and couch cushions. Pet fur is difficult to remove completely, but cleaning companies have the heavy-duty equipment required to rid your upholstery of unwanted fur.

Quick Maintenance Tips

  • Install blinds in your windows so that your drapery does not fade rapidly.
  • Don’t place sharp objects, pens, or markers on upholstered furniture.
  • Keep upholstered furniture out of direct sunlight to prevent fading.
  • Cover upholstered furniture with blankets in places where pets sit.
  • Rotate and fluff cushions on upholstered furniture periodically.
