Upholstery Cleaning: Why It Needs to be A Company Priority


Keeping your upholstery clean and looking like new should be on the top of your to-do list this winter to help protect one of your most costly and necessary investments. Upholstery is often overlooked when planning to clean the office space, even though your flooring may cover more square footage, your leather or fabric furnishings, and panels require just as many cleanings. Dirt, dust, and other pollutants that collect in the fabric and crevices of your furniture can compromise air quality as well as leaving it looking soiled and stained.  A professional upholstery cleaning can completely freshen up the look in your building, as well as increase the indoor environmental quality.

Routine maintenance on your buildings’ upholstery can actually reduce sick days as well. Upholstery easily collects dust mites, pollen and other allergens. Regular upholstery cleaning can help reduce the total amount of allergens in your building. When it comes to health, allergens are not the only things to worry about with your upholstery. Bacteria can also take hold in the cracks and crevices of your furnishings. This bacteria will not only leave your furniture smelling bad, but it can also set off a chain of continuous illness for employees, clients, or visitors. Regular cleanings will make sure that the bacteria are killed and leave your building a healthier environment for everyone.

When your buildings’ upholstery is left to its own devices, it can become grimy and dirty. You may notice that the colors look faded and your furnishings no longer look like they did when you first purchased them. Regular upholstery cleanings can keep your fabrics and furnishings looking like new. Getting rid of the dirt and dust can bring back the original look and feel of your furnishings. Repeatedly replacing furniture or panels can become a costly exercise. When a professional takes care of your furniture and other upholstery on a regular basis, you can extend its life span. This can save you money in the long run.
