Does My Upholstery Really Need To Be Dry Cleaned?

May 15, 2015 10:02:07 AM

Furniture_CleaningUpholstered furniture receives almost constant use. We sit on it, lounge on it and put our feet on the fabric, let the pets lay on it, and the kids play on it. Dust and pet hair settle into the cracks and corners, and the daily wear and tear can really start to show. It’s possible to keep your upholstery looking tidy, but like many other features in your home, it benefits from regular professional deep cleaning. Don’t let the “dry clean only” tags deter you; getting your upholstered furniture thoroughly clean is easier than you think!

Upholstered Furniture Care

Jan 24, 2014 12:19:00 PM

patio furniture upholstered furniture cleaning JacksonvilleUnderstanding Upholstered Furniture

Upholstery is the often-padded, covered part of furniture. While it needn’t be cushioned, it typically is, thus it’s multi-layered. This makes its care more complex than rigid, single-strata furniture, such as wood or metals. There’s usually some sort of surfacing material -- most commonly fabric, leather or synthetic -- over springs or webbing, with a pad between the two. Traditional padding may be animal hair or a dried plant product, while modern furniture uses manufactured material.

Why Take the Trouble?          

Furnishings represent a large part of the investment we make in our homes. Proper care increases the service period of almost everything, while neglect will shorten useful life. If you have children, or pets, or your furniture sees heavier-than-average use (perhaps you host regular get-togethers or study groups in your home) then the furniture will need extra care. This way, it will last longer and look better.

Most of these tips apply equally to indoor and outdoor furniture, but there’s a section at the end dedicated to patio and lawn chairs and chaises, and that's taking care of upholstery cleaning Jacksonville, FL-style.

5 Signs Your Upholstered Furniture Needs To Be Professionally Cleaned

Jan 21, 2014 12:05:00 PM

upholstery cleaning Jacksonville, FLEveryone loves the look and smell of a clean home, especially regarding furniture. Deciding when is the right time to clean you furnishings is a personal choice based on individual preferences. Certain types of furniture really absorb odor and pet dander, even if it's not covered in dog hair. Allergens can also collect and irritate certain individuals if upholstery is not properly maintained in a routine manner. Below is a list of five signs that you should get your upholstery cleaning done by a professional service in Jacksonville, Florida.

Fuzzy Furniture                               

Generally speaking, if you own a dog or two and your armchair has become as furry as a grizzly bear, you're probably overdue for a cleaning. Vacuums don't easily strip off pet hair, especially regarding loose dog hair. A little is always left behind each time you try to clean your furniture. Also, since dogs that shed commonly lie on furniture, removing the hair only leaves the furniture with a dirty appearance.  

Lint brushes are great for peeling off lint and pet hair, but, as with a vacuum, the brush won't nab everything. Even if you used a combination of both a vacuum and a lint brush, there will still be some surviving pet hair (and of course all of the dirt and bacteria you won't be able to see), which is why you should invest in a professional upholstery cleaning service.
