What’s Hiding in my Upholstery?

Upholstery Care

Upholstery refers to the padding, springs, coverings, and fabric that cover your furniture. While we tend not to think about it, many critical elements are required to make a good piece of high-quality furniture. Like anything else, upholstery is subject to regular wear and tear. What can you do to help increase the longevity of your furniture and keep it looking as good as new?

Bacterial Breeding Ground

Unwashed upholstery makes for an ideal environment in which bacteria can grow and fester. The dense fabric provides a soft substrate and the constant exposure to different people provides ample opportunity for bacteria to spread around. As a result, your furniture’s dirty upholstery could be transmitting harmful pathogens throughout your entire office! A professional cleaning and disinfection job will help drastically reduce transmission and keep your office workers safe while also helping to get your furniture looking like new again. 

Accumulated Grime

While bacteria are of particular importance due to safety concerns, they aren’t the only problem with uncleaned upholstery. Regular use will result in an accumulation of dirt, grime, sweat, and dead skin in and around your piece of furniture. This layer of grime detracts from your furniture’s appearance and becomes more and more difficult to remove over time as layers build upon layers. Moreover, dirty furniture tends to accumulate a variety of odours, most of which one might consider to be unpleasant. However, there’s no need to throw out old furniture and spend precious resources on new ones! Regency Cleaning can help restore dirty upholstery and get rid of any lingering smells.
