Everybody knows how easily a house can become messy, especially when there are children running around and regular visits from friends and family.
Vacuuming and picking up after them is simple enough, albeit time-consuming and tedious. However, certain pieces of furniture are tougher than others to clean, such as the sofa and armchairs.
Sofas are big and bulky. To clean them properly you have to pull out the seat cushions and vacuum every inch and brush away any crumbs and other bits that have fallen behind and collected in the corners and along the edges.
Upholstery cleaning has to be performed on a regular basis in order to prevent unseen hazards from growing deep in the fabrics. Indeed, the more you let the sofas and armchairs collect dust, fallen hairs, crumbs and whatever else can attach itself to the fabrics, the more of a perfect breeding ground you create for microscopic pests, such as dust mites.
A good way to prevent most dirt from getting deep into fabric sofas and armchairs is by placing throws over them. Not only will a throw nicely decorate your upholstery, but they also serve to catch most dust and dirt from getting to them. They will also absorb a lot of the sweat from people that spend a lot of time lounging in them.
