Our team at Crystal Clean of Delmarva believes that everyone deserves to be comfortable in their own home, and we also understand that a key part of that comfort comes from the home’s furniture. In particular, upholstered furniture needs to be cleaned periodically in order to keep it as comfortable as possible and preserve its good looks. In this article, we’ll go over a few ways to tell whether your furniture is in need of upholstery cleaning services. If you notice any of your upholstered pieces exhibiting these signs, we encourage you to give us a call as soon as possible.
• Odor- One sign that you definitely need upholstery cleaning services is a noticeable odor coming from your furniture. You may not notice this sign right away, as our noses tend to filter out smells that we encounter all the time (an effect that some have called “nose blindness”), so you may want to ask a friend to visit and tell you if they smell anything in order to know for sure.
• Pet Hair- Another indicator that you need upholstery cleaning services is pet hair that has become embedded in the fibers. No matter how hard you try, your pet’s fur is likely to end up ground into your fabric upholstery at some point, and when that happens, you will need trained cleaners like ourselves to remove it.
• Increased Allergy Symptoms- A third sign that you may need upholstery cleaning services is an increase in the allergy symptoms that you or any member of your household is experiencing. For example, if you are sneezing more often or experiencing more severe coughing, then the cause may be built-up allergens in your upholstery fabric.
