Why is it Necessary to clean your Couch?

You probably don’t clean your couch as often as you should, but when you do, how do you make it clean and nice? Is it as simple as using soap and water? No, and thus it’s important to know how to properly clean a couch, or even better, get it cleaned thoroughly by professionals.
In this guide, we will explain why it is important to clean your sofas. These tips will help you make sure your sofa stays clean and in good condition for a long time.

Good to Know

It is common to think that cleaning your sofa is simple and that it is enough to vacuum it or wipe it with a cloth. These methods of cleaning a fabric sofa can in fact remove dirt on the surface, but still it is sometimes not enough.

On the other hand, in order to tackle the tasks embedded in the materials or the various pests that have formed over time, it is essential to use a more in-depth cleaning with a steam extraction tool.

Your couch is probably a place where you spend many moments with family or friends in your daily life. Since it is such a high traffic area, many crumbs and various food residues are constantly being left behind – even with regular cleaning.

Spillovers are part of everyday life and are often inevitable. So it’s not easy to prevent spills but there are ways to take care of them so your furniture stays as good as new.

If you have sofas at home, there is a good chance that they need to be cleaned. Dust, dirt, hair, germs, allergens, pollen and bacteria can all accumulate over time. Did you know that dust mites are the leading cause of respiratory allergies?

Not only can these contaminants make your furniture look dirty, they also pose a risk to your health. Some food stains can cause mold to form if they are not cleaned quickly enough, which can irreversibly damage your sofa and become a real hotbed for spreading bacteria.

If you have pets, it is even more essential to focus on cleaning your sofas. Whether you allow them to climb or not, their hair spreads and nest everywhere.

Cleaning your sofas is a good solution to fight everyday allergens.

How to Clean your Couch?

Many websites offer tutorials to clean your sofa yourself according to the material that it is made up of. It is not totally impossible to follow them and obtain a satisfactory result. However, you should know that this cleaning will not be a complete cleaning since it will not remove the dirt embedded in the fibers and therefore, will not get rid of any parasites, mites or various bacteria.

Cleaning professionals practice a cleaning technique known for its high efficiency on the various materials: injection/ extraction. This method is based on the use of a specific machine that will inject a special mixture of water and soap into the fabric and suck it up again. This method does not alter the fabric and makes it possible to disinfect much more deeply than any other method. As long as the machine does not emerge a perfectly clear mixture, it continues to work.

The work of our artisans is articulated in several stages:

  1. Powerful dust removal is done using a technical vacuum cleaner.
  2. A specific stain remover is applied to neutralize smells and remove stains.
  3. The injection/extraction machine is then used to rinse and disinfect the sofa in depth.
  4. A drying procedure will be explained to you and must be followed for optimal results.

Depending on your wishes and personal issues, additional services can be offered. For example, if you are allergic to mites, specific products can be applied. Or, if you have pets, we also offer protective products for your sofa to prevent the appearance of new stains.

How to Choose your Service Provider?

Many companies offer cleaning services for furniture and sofas. It is therefore difficult to know which company to choose. Here are some questions to ask yourself when looking at the offers of the various providers.

For example:

  • Do they offer insurance?
  • What type of methodology do they use?
  • How long have they been practicing?
  • What is their level of expertise in sofa cleaning?

Indeed, the poor choice of a provider can permanently harm your interior. Poor product choices can not only affect your sofa, but also your health and the health of your loved ones, as some cleaning products are extremely toxic.

Don’t forget when you request a quote that the cost of the services depends on the sofa, it’s condition, it’s size and the materials that make it up. It is important to tell us if it is a fabric sofa, as well as if it is a sectional sofa.
