One complaint that many homeowners or renters have when it comes to their old furniture is that it ‘looks’ dirty. Over time, no matter how much you clean your house, no matter how much dusting and vacuuming you do, dust and dirt will settle on the fabric.
After several years without a professional cleaning service, that upholstery is going to look old and worn out. However, if the fabric, leather, or other material isn’t frayed, ripped, or otherwise damaged, there is no reason why it can’t be restored through a professional upholstery cleaning.
This is usually performed by professional cleaning companies and is similar to carpet cleaning. The upholstery, if it is fabric, will collect dust and dirt. Even if you clean on a regular basis, the human body sheds skin cells consistently, all the time, and those dead skin cells account for more than 80 percent of the dust in your home. You could spend an hour every day vacuuming, dusting, and keeping up with what you can see and still not get all of it.
So it settles into those fabrics and fibers. Over time, they get deeper into the fabric, down into the bottom layer where a vacuum hose attachment can’t reach. The only way to truly get those fabrics clean is to hire a professional cleaning service.
You could certainly rent an upholstery steam cleaner, or buy one, but they either won’t have the power that will truly make a difference or they could have been used by someone to clean –shall we say- messes that you would probably prefer not knowing about.
Professional cleaning companies, like Royal Interior Cleaning, are required to handle certain jobs that involve bodily fluids or other hazardous materials in a specific manner, so you’ll know that their machines are coming into your home clean and sterile. They also have the power needed to get deep down into the fibers and return your furniture to almost new condition.
The truth is that the older your furniture is, the less likely it will look ‘like new,’ but you will be amazed at just how incredible it can look after all of these years.
