Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Services in Hamilton Township & Surrounding Area? is one of the most important services that can be performed in a household. Sofas, chairs, beds and even stools are used more often than most other surfaces in the home and yet are among the least cleaned.
According to BBC Science, the human body renews the entire epidermis every 30 days. That means the human body sheds 1.6 trillion skin cells every 30 days. These skin cells are released when driving, working, sleeping, spending time with family, etc., floating away harmlessly and resting on the next surface: upholstered furniture. These cells, mixed with the occasional hand wipe, accidental spills and pet scent marks, can slowly dull the light-colored fabrics and become a breeding ground for other unsightly allergens and bacteria, including dust mites.
Upholstery steam cleaning, a specialty service performed by a professional, is a cleaning process designed to treat each of these elements. Steam cleaning is cleaning with steam. The water is properly heated and applied to the fabric at high pressure and immediately extracted from the fabric. The steam opens up the fibres, the pressure forces the dirt out of the fabric and the extractions pull it all away from the upholstery.
Peter, owner and operator of in Hamilton Township & Surrounding Area explains: “Upholstery cleaning is not only about cleaning, it is also about disinfecting the fabric. Sofas and chairs are some of the most used surfaces in our homes and can absorb a fair amount of what’s in the air. Upholstery steam cleaning quickly disinfects the furniture while providing the added benefit of restoring the fabric to both the look and feel, preserving the life of the furniture pieces and improving indoor air quality.”
Skin cells are also known to attract dust mites. Dust mites, as described by the American Lung Association, are very small, insect-like pests that lodge in dust and fabrics, clinging to mattresses, upholstery fabrics, carpets, and curtains. They don’t bite, sting, or dig, but most people with dust allergies have a reaction to these microscopic creatures. Those with asthma or other lung problems will benefit from a regular upholstery steam cleaning service. Dust mites are guaranteed to be eliminated and washed away by steam cleaning upholstery and mattresses.
It is also very important to consider the types of cleaning products used on upholstery. It was already impressed that steam cleaning upholstery is incredibly important. If the purpose of cleaning is to remove all bacteria, viruses and dust mites, then the products used should leave nothing behind either. Certain products can leave soap, odorous substances or similar residues. Sometimes these particles can either cause allergies or pull dust back into the upholstery fibers.
All types of upholstered furniture need a thorough cleaning every 9 to 12 months regardless of the condition of the furniture itself. Upholstery attracts all types of particles and steam cleaning is one of the most efficient ways to keep the furniture and home clean and healthy. For this reason, and for the health of the home and the people in it, upholstery steam cleaning is always necessary.
