Here are some of the benefits of having your upholstery professionally cleaned…

Removes allergens and other irritants from upholstery

With the spring season right around the corner, it can never be too early to begin thinking about your facility’s air quality. Allergens, dust mites, and other irritants can collect in upholstery which can affect your air quality. Every time someone sits on a couch in your lobby or at a desk, these irritants are expelled into the air. 

Professional upholstery cleaners will help prevent the build up of allergens, especially during the height of the season. In fact spring might be the best time to schedule upholstery cleaning a few times to help improve your air quality and protect the wellbeing of your employees and guests. 

Eliminates odors which may be a sign of other health hazards

If your upholstery carries an odor, such as a sour smell or something worse, you need to have it professionally cleaned. Odor is a sign of mold, bacteria, or mildew growth and will be a turnoff for your guests and employees. 

The best way to neutralize odors in upholstery is to schedule them for a deep cleaning. Deep cleaning will eliminate foul smells and stop the growth of harmful bacteria and other substances. 

Preserves fabric and the life of your office furniture

Next to carpets, upholstery is one of the most expensive surfaces in your office to maintain and replace. When you invest in professional upholstery cleaning, you are protecting your investment in office furniture by extending the life of the upholstery.
