Upholstery is a tricky thing to keep clean. Whether we’re talking about your favorite couch in the living room or the backseat of your car, upholstery needs to be cleaned pretty regularly. If you haven’t cleaned your upholstery in a while, there’s a good chance that your upholstery has already given you a handful of signs that it’s time. Even so, it can be difficult to recognize these signs if you have absolutely no idea what you’re looking for!

Sani-Kleen Carpet Care of Savannah offers high-quality upholstery cleaning services to the Savannah and surrounding areas. Keep reading to discover four signs that it’s time to get your upholstery cleaned.

Visible Stains

One of the most noticeable signs that your upholstery can give you are unsightly stains that you simply can’t get out. Spills are totally common for couches, office chairs, and the seats of cars, but that doesn’t mean that they should stick around for the foreseeable future. If your upholstery is stained pretty badly or it’s starting to get a bit grimey in the areas where it’s used regularly, you’re definitely due for a cleaning. 

Questionable Smell

As if an ugly stain wasn’t enough of a reason to book your upholstery cleaning, a bad, lingering smell is definitely a reason to contact a professional upholstery cleaning company and book your services. Smells are another major sign that your upholstery needs to be professionally cleaned. As with those tricky stains we just finished talking about, odors are something that can only be removed with the commercial equipment of a professional company. This type of equipment can get to the root of the upholstery where the cause of the smell is lingering, something that you can’t tackle on your own. 

Bad Allergies

Allergies are something that many struggle with, but you’d be surprised just how many of your allergies are due to the upholstery that you’re spending time on. Fabric is capable of holding onto pet dander, dust, and impurities in the air. If you are someone with pretty bad allergies as is, your upholstery could be your worst enemy! In the case that your allergies have recently gotten worse, it’s worth cleaning your upholstery and seeing if that helps. You’d be surprised just how much this can minimize the irritation of allergies.

Pet Dander

While we’re on the topic of allergies, let’s talk about something that almost always gets allergies going: pet dander. Pet dander is so small that it easily makes its way into the fabric of your furniture and, when lounging on the couch, can cause allergies to flare up. Even when you’re not struggling with allergies, pet dander is definitely something that you don’t want to have hanging around on your couch. If you have pets that lounge around on the couch, having a professional come and clean your upholstery regularly is a must. Not only is it good for the quality of air in your home, but it also helps prolong the life of your furniture; two things that we think are worth every penny!
