Clean Your Upholstered Furniture When These 5 Things Happen

You spent a lot of money on your furniture, so it’s natural that you would want to protect it at all costs. It’s much cheaper to hire a professional carpet cleaner in Metro Detroit than to replace a piece of furniture when it gets dirty or stained. But if you’re like any other home owner, you know messes happen that can’t be avoided.

You should have your upholstered furniture cleaned after these five occurrences.

1.  You Had a House Fire

Even if the fire was minor, your home and furnishings can reek of smoke for days, weeks and months later. The acrid smell of a fire can permeate everything in your house, even after you have cleaned the soot and debris. You don’t want to rub soot and odors further into the fabric, so hire an upholstery cleaner to do it the right way. They can clean and deodorize all furniture and carpeting in no time.

2.  You Inherited Furniture

Whether your mom passed and left you a house full of furniture or you inherited a rare Victorian couch from your antique-dealing uncle, cleaning the upholstery before you bring it into your home is important. It could take you days to scrub multiple furniture pieces on your own, plus you could be doing a lot more damage than you realize.

If you scrub too much, fabric pilling can result. You can also destroy old and fragile fabrics. If you DIY your furniture cleaning, you could leave the arm chairs and couches over-saturated with water and soap. It’s always best to hire a professional so you can preserve the integrity of the pieces.

3.  You Purchased Used Furniture

Likewise, when you buy used furniture, either online or from your neighbor down the street, you have no idea of the real history of the pieces. You don’t know the origin of the stains that you see, or the dead skin cells, pet hair and urine stains that your “new” furniture could be riddled with.

Always use caution when buying used upholstered furniture. Make sure a professional upholstery cleaner gives it a once-over before you incorporate it into your home.

4.  You Just Got Your Furniture Out of Storage

It may be your own furniture, but when it’s been in storage for any length of time, you should always have it professionally cleaned before you bring it back into your home. You don’t know if your storage unit was compromised by bugs, moisture, or mold, and having freshly cleaned and deodorized furniture will give you peace of mind.

5.  There Was an Accident or Spill

Whether your son had a potty-training accident on your couch or you spilled some wine on your loveseat, it’s important to address those circumstances right away. That’s because old stains tend to attract new stains while retaining nasty odors. A professional upholstery cleaner will not only remove the stains but the odors that go with them.

I could not be happier with our cleaning service from 1st Class! From my first call, Ginny worked with me to optimize the timing of our cleaning with other work being done, and all communication from there was clear and thorough. Claude and Ginny are genuinely nice people and were a pleasure to work with during the cleaning. They clearly know their stuff and stand behind their work. Results were my formerly bedraggled 9 year old carpets looking brand new and a company I will definitely use again and recommend to others.

This Company did a fantastic job on our 30+ year old carpet that just won't wear out! While we were moving furniture back afterward, I noticed a strip in a traffic area that didn't look quite right. When I contacted them, they were back out within a few hours and promptly took care of the issue!

We have a carpet that was the best quality at the time, but is 30 years old. It had so many stains, I was sure they were permanent. The owners showed up with state of the art equipment and 'steam' cleaned, not hot water clean, and got almost every stain and mark out of this old carpet. It honestly looks like new. The only stain remaining was because it was actual wood stain and you have to replace the carpet with that much damage. The steam allows you to walk on the carpet in 6 hours instead of the usual 24. We are selling this house and the carpet was the only sore spot, but not anymore. I will recommend this company to family and friends with a clear conscience.
