Upholstery Cleaning Throughout SW Florida

Why Is It One Of The Things We Use The Most We Clean The Least?

Just take a few seconds to think about all of the things you use the most in your home. Your favorite comfortable chair or sofa is perhaps one of them.

Now think about what you clean most frequently. Your furniture may not be on that list, right? Why is it that we use our furniture daily, but we hardly remember to have them professionally cleaned, if ever?

If it has been a while since you’ve had your furniture cleaned, these three things may be present:

Viruses & bacteria:

Each of us picks up bacteria and germs daily and if you have children or pets, even more, contaminates, viruses, germs, and bacteria are brought into our home and deposited on our furniture. And if you’ve ever spent a day at home sick on the sofa watching your favorite TV shows, then those germs or viruses end up on your upholstery too.

Bacteria and other contaminants stick to upholstered items and may continue to multiply until the furniture is professionally cleaned and treated.

Dust mites & allergens:

Dust mites are small bugs that are at home in the soft fibers of our furniture. Every home has them, and it doesn’t matter how often your home is cleaned.

Dust Mites feed off of the skin cells we shed, and in turn, leave feces behind that we inhale. Dust mites contribute to indoor air pollution and are one of the leading causes of allergies in a home. The less often you have your upholstery, carpeting, or mattresses cleaned, the more there are.

In addition to dust mites, pollen is deposited on furniture and is “squished in” to the upholstery fibers each time we sit or lay down.  Other creatures present in upholstery can be pet dander if the homeowner owns pets, body oils, hair dyes, and whatever our clothes have come into contact with throughout the day.

Your typical vacuuming will not eliminate these annoying mites & allergens, nor will a spray of your favorite canned disinfectant.


In the warmer climates of SW Florida, our technicians regularly see evidence of mold in the crease of clients’ furniture.  This mold is usually present in homes that keep their thermostats high or have humidity issues.

Mold spores seep into fabrics like a sponge, and without professional cleaning, can cause respiratory, watery eyes, contribute to a miserable night’s sleep, or allergen attacks.
