Is the furniture in your home or office looking stained or dingy? Does your furniture look worn? Does it have tangled tracks that don’t react to your vacuum? It’s time to clean them up!
Upholstery cleaning not only makes your furniture fresher and newer – it keeps them in good shape longer. Dirt and other contaminants wear out your upholstery fibers and can dramatically affect the life of your furniture. Extending the life of your furniture is important, because furniture replacement could seriously hurt your budget.
When people in a need of furniture cleaning, they either decided to do it themselves or hire a professional cleaning company. Usually people hoping to save money and try to do it alone. People who hire cleaning companies usually prefer not to deal with complexity and commitments. The problem is that many people think that cleaning furniture is very simple task. You buy or rent a machine, a bottle of cleaning solution, and then run the machine over the furniture and wait for it to dry. Why do you pay someone to do if you can do it yourself?
Unfortunately, furniture cleaning isn’t really just a step forward from vacuuming. Today, we will discuss several reasons why it’s important to hire a professional to clean your furniture.
DIY Furniture cleaning costs more
You’ve decided to clean furniture yourself, what’s next? You need to rent or buy the equipment. Also would need to buy a cleaning solution, but since you never done this before it will lead to waste, which leads to the purchase of an additional solution. If you need to remove spots from your furniture, you should invest in special procedures that cost more. You should also consider the cost of time – furniture cleaning is not a quick process. In the end, there is a high probability that you will spend more by doing cleaning yourself.
DIY Furniture cleaning is hard work
You don’t want to clean the furniture again, just a few months after the first cleaning, right? Well, that means you have to do it right the first time. Proper execution takes considerable time and energy. You must move furniture, vacuum, pre-spray, mix and extract. All of that doesn’t include filling, emptying, cleaning and returning the equipment if you rented it. This is an important project, and if you don’t do it well, you can end up pulling it all out and try again.
DIY Upholstery cleaning often makes furniture dirtier
The most important part of any furniture cleaning is rinsing. Without a good rinse, the detergent remains in the fibers. Detergent is sticky and collects dirt like crazy. Furniture that were not rinsed properly will re-soil quickly. This can lead to irreversible damage to your furniture, preventing it from ever looking the same. Unfortunately, rented furniture cleaning machines don’t have enough power to completely rinse and remove the detergent. At best, they give you a cleaner surface covered in messy detergent. As a result, your furniture will quickly become dark and dull.
