3 Frequently Used Furnitures You’ve Probably Forget to Clean


It’s safe to say that when it comes to cleaning the house, most of us will regularly clean the floors, bathroom and kitchen on our own or hiring a cleaning service provider. But oftentimes, your home requires a bit more. There are a handful of forgotten furnitures that we should be cleaning more often to reduce allergens.

1. Mattresses


You probably wash and replace our bed sheets on a regular basis , but do you know that it is important to deep clean your mattress as well? Mattresses accumulate dead skin flakes, dust, sweat, body oil, hair and dust mites. Think about sharing your bed with two million dust mites. How disgusting! Knowing how to clean a mattress can help to get rid of all the allergens and help you sleep better at night.


Here’s an easy way on how you can clean your mattress: remove your bed sheets, sprinkle a thin layer of baking soda over the surface of your mattress, let it sit for a couple of hours then vacuum it thoroughly. Then repeat the steps for the other side of the bed. It is recommended to clean your mattress at least once every six months.

2. Sofa


Like your mattress, your sofa can easily accumulates dust, food crumbs, pet hair and body oil. We all love being couch potatoes but it’s no fun to lounge on a dirty sofa.


Reclaim your sofa lounge-worthy status by cleaning it regularly. First, check the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions before you start. There are different cleaning instructions for different types of materials. You’ll find a cleaning tag with either one of the four alphabets – W, W/S, S or X. Here are what the different alphabets represent:


  1. Wis the easiest to clean and means water-based cleaners are okay to use
  2. W/S means that either water- or solvent-based cleaners are safe
  3. S means only solvent-based cleaning chemicals should be used
  4. X means do nothing more than vacuum or brush the fabric

Now, you should have an idea on how you should clean your sofa and you should not deviate from the recommended cleaning method.

3. Carpets


If you think that vacuuming your carpet regularly on your own can maintain your carpet cleanliness, then you are wrong. Vacuuming your carpet is not enough to keep it clean and you might even damage your carpet if it is not done correctly. Whether you like it or not, professional steaming and cleaning of carpet is the only way to protect your carpet and keeping it away from dirt, dust and pollutants. So, getting professional cleaner to deep clean your carpet is necessary!
