Well Done Upholstery Cleaning
What is more relaxing than coming home from a hard day at work, and collapsing onto your oh, so comfortable, family room furniture? You can watch a movie, have a snack, curl up with a good book, or relax with the family pet. Here’s the part most people don’t know – tens of millions of bacteria, allergens, pollen, microbes, dust mites, and other living organisms inhabit your upholstered furniture. They not only live there, they eat there (human and pet dander), and reproduce there as well.
Think about it. Besides dirt and dust, your furniture fabric contains food particles, pet hair, dead human skin, drywall dust, pollen, bacteria, and can additionally contain blood, coffee spills, fruit juices, alcohol, ink, human sweat, and many other substances. Sure, you can vacuum, and wipe up spills, and you should. But the overall effect of having so many tiny organisms living, and reproducing, in your upholstery leads to increased ailments like:
- Watery eyes and nose
- Ear and throat irritations
- Shortness of breath
- Skin rashes
- and many other ailments!

Even if you don’t normally suffer from hay fever or allergies, you can be adversely affected by the bacteria, pollen, and other allergens living in your furniture upholstery. For those who already suffer from respiratory ailments, or for small children, or the elderly, the added presence of these little pests serves to bring additional suffering. Even dogs and cats are known to be affected by this. To make matters worse, mold and mildew can begin growing rapidly inside your cushions, pillows, and other items covered in fabric.
Question: “Which furniture items are at risk in my home, or place of business?”
Answer: Anything covered in fabric. Most common furniture items that might be at risk include: bed mattresses, pillows, large cushions, throw pillows, sofas, recliners, bar stools, car seats, home theater seats, chaise lounges, futon mattresses, coverlets, even patio furniture.
Question: “My furniture doesn’t smell bad, or musty. Does it need upholstery cleaning?”
Answer: Yes. Musty or dirty smells do not always accompany fabric that is loaded with bacteria, and dust mites. Your bed mattress alone could contain several pounds of dust mites, without giving off a smell at all.
Question: “How does La Mesa Carpet Cleaning Experts clean my upholstered furniture?”
Answer: We treat each piece on an individual basis. We test each fabric piece before cleaning, to ensure that colors and fabric will not fade, or be damaged in any way. We have several cleaning methods that we employ. An expensive wall hanging, or tapestry, will not be cleaned in the same manner, or style as a floor throw pillow, or a dog bed. We regularly use steam cleaning, dry foam cleaning, and hot water extraction methods to produce outstanding results. Of course, all cleaners, and solutions are safe, gentle, and non-toxic.
