The estimated cost of reupholstery ranges from $150 for a padded wooden chair, to several thousand dollars for an antique coach.
Rather than waiting until the point at which reupholstery becomes necessary, why not get professional upholstery cleaning?
The trick is identifying the signs that it’s time for an upholstery cleaning. As long as you stay on top of furniture maintenance, you can keep even antique upholstery in good condition for decades.
Let’s go over some of the signs that it’s time for professional upholstery cleaning.
When was the last time you flipped the cushion on your vintage upholstered chair? Give your upholstery an inspection and look for areas of discoloration.
You may think that discoloration is purely the result of light exposure and use. You would be surprised at how much a thorough cleaning could help to revive those vibrant colors.
Stain removal can be tricky when it comes to upholstery. Chemicals, liquids, and dirt have a tendency to seep into fibers and latch on.
Upholstery often consists of a combination of natural and manmade fibers. It is especially tough to know how to tackle stains that have attached themselves to mixed fibers. Professionals will know which solutions will lift deep-set stains without damaging the integrity of the upholstery.
Is your favorite chair feeling a little rough? Do you find that it makes your arms and the backs of your legs itch when you sit down in it?
The fibers of aging upholstery may begin to fray or lose their original softness. However, the majority of the time, this unpleasant texture is caused by the dirt, dust, and even food crumbs that have wedged their way into the weave. Removing this buildup not only gets rid of the itchy culprit, but also allows frayed or broken fibers to lay down, creating a smoother texture.
Let’s face it, upholstery tends to pick up a lot of funky smells. It could be from your lounging pets, your work clothes, or even the onions you cooked last week.
We don’t often think about what smell is or how it transfers. When something triggers our sense of smell, it is actually small particles entering our nose and sending signals to our brain. This is why smell can carry and stick to fabric for days or weeks after the smell was produced.
In other words, if you don’t get your upholstery cleaned, it could hold on to lingering smells that add up over time.
Did you know that dust mites can make your seasonal allergy or asthma symptoms worsen?
Dust mites are microscopic, too small to view with the naked eye. They love dwelling in textiles, where moisture gets trapped and they can easily absorb it. If your upholstery isn’t clean, you might be hosting thousands of dust mites!
