Why is upholstery not treated the same as carpets?
Upholstery fabrics are subjected to the same types of spills, spots and stains as you find in carpets. However, while we tend to lump both upholstered items and carpeting into the same “home furnishings” category, the sensitive nature of many of the fibers used in upholstery fabrics, as well as some of the construction characteristics, make cleaning and spot and stain removal riskier in upholstery than it is in carpet.
Your carpet may have been chosen by the builder or the previous owner, but your furniture likely reflects your personal taste in décor and fashion. It coordinates with other colors in your home. Furniture and fabric manufacturers recommend that consumers not wait until severe soiling occurs before cleaning because the greater the soiling, the less the likelihood of restoring the fabrics original color, appearance and texture; and the greater adverse effect on indoor environmental quality.
Routine maintenance of furnishings by vacuuming and immediate attention to spills, coupled with periodic upholstery cleaning by a by a trained professional every 12 to 24 months can help restore your furniture’s appearance, extend its life, and keep it looking like new.
