Many homeowners clean their homes but don't consider cleaning their furniture. This is a mistake. Much like carpet, upholstery fabric acts as a filter, trapping debris floating in the air. This debris remains in the fabric until it is cleaned, but can be forced into the air when someone sits on the furniture. Even worse, dirt is abrasive and can wear out fabric before its time. In the Washington DC area, UCM Upholstery Cleaning can revive your upholstery and make your home a healthy home for you and your family.
Upholstery can conceal some of the top air quality offenders. Allergens, pollutants, dander, dust, and grime can all be lurking in the fibers of your upholstery. The longer you wait to clean your furniture, the greater the accumulation of these allergens, causing damage to your family's health and deteriorating your upholstery fabric. Dirty upholstery is one possible source of indoor air pollution. A simple yet thorough cleaning removes this problem and can help restore the air quality of your house to a healthier level, especially when done in combination with carpet and air duct cleaning.
Upholstery should be cleaned every 12 months under normal use. This will ensure the quality of the material stays intact. With heavier use, we recommend more frequent cleaning. Getting your upholstery professionally cleaned gives your furniture the best care, specifically tailored to the type of cloth and soil level. Trust UCM Upholstery Cleaning and our tried and tested cleaning techniques. We use professional cleaning equipment in combination with specially formulated cleansers to renew your upholstery.
Often our upholstery cleaning is carried out using a steam cleaning machine, as heat is most effective at removing stubborn dirt and stains. However, our cleaning experts have other expert cleaning methods at their disposal and are trained to identify when upholstery needs special attention. The dry time is significantly shorter for upholstery than it is for carpet cleaning, usually about an hour.
However, few homeowners realize that mold can also grow in upholstered furniture. In fact, mold is often found in couches and chairs that have been in storage for a while, or that have been subject to a water leak. Professional mold testing is relatively simple and inexpensive, and our prompt mold remediation can save you and your family from the health risks posed by fungal toxins.
