Sure, you can save money by cleaning furniture yourself, but if you don’t know what you’re doing, you could make things worse. Professional furniture cleaning obviously costs money, but what you spend will be well worth the level of expertise and service that you’ll get.
The main reason for hiring a professional is that there are some stains you’ll never be able to remove yourself. Upholstery is made with specific fabrics that don’t react well to normal cleaning techniques. Special cleaning agents are needed for the job – cleaning agents that most homeowners don’t have. Furniture cleaning professionals know how to use these chemicals properly and safely.
Moreover, the unique shapes of furniture require special tools to get into all the nooks and crannies. It’s not cost-effective for homeowners to purchase these tools. It’s actually more affordable to hire a professional cleaning business instead. The furniture cleaning company will come to your home to do the job. In rare circumstances, they might have to take your furniture somewhere else to do special cleaning. This only happens if it is particularly dirty, or if it’s made of a very rare fabric.
Some furniture cleaning chemicals contain VOCs (volatile organic compounds), which can cause respiratory problems. That’s why it’s best to hire a company that uses green cleaning solutions that are not harmful to people, pets or the environment.
