Separating Fact from Fiction When It Comes to Professionals Cleaning Your Furniture

Our cherished couches, armchairs, and ottomans are more than just furniture; they're comfort zones, conversation starters, and silent witnesses to countless memories. Keeping them clean and well-maintained ensures they stay in their best condition, but navigating the world of upholstery care can be confusing, especially with so many myths floating around.

At JAE, we want to empower you to make informed decisions about your furniture's well-being. So, let's debunk some common myths about professional upholstery cleaning and separate fact from fiction.

Myth #1: Professional cleaning is only necessary for really dirty furniture with visible stains
Even if your furniture looks clean on the surface, dust, fine grit, allergens, and even microscopic critters like dust mites can accumulate deep within the fabric over time, causing premature wear. Regular professional cleaning, recommended every 12-24 months, removes these hidden enemies, promoting a healthier and cleaner living environment and extending the life of your furniture.

Myth #2: DIY cleaning is just as effective and cheaper
While DIY cleaning appeals to the frugal side, the risks involved often outweigh the potential savings. Using the wrong product or technique can lead to permanent damage, requiring expensive repairs or even furniture replacement. Professionals such as JAE have the experience and expertise to choose the safest and most effective cleaning methods for your specific upholstery, ensuring a thorough clean without the risk of costly mishaps.

At JAE, we understand your concerns about upholstery cleaning. Bree is here to answer something we get asked all the time: "Can you clean my furniture?"

Myth #3: All professional cleaning companies are the same
Just like any industry, there can be significant variations in quality and expertise. Opting for a reputable company like JAE ensures your furniture is in the hands of certified technicians who use high-quality, safe cleaning solutions and equipment. We have decades of experience and we also prioritise training to stay up to date on the latest cleaning methods to ensure your furniture receives the care it deserves.

Myth #4: My furniture is too old or worn for professional cleaning

Professional cleaning can actually help bring older furniture back to life. By removing deep-seated dirt and allergens, professional upholstery cleaning can help revive the fabric's appearance, extending the furniture’s lifespan, and potentially even preserve its value.

Myth #5: Professional cleaning uses harmful chemicals that can damage upholstery
At JAE, we prioritise using safe and eco-friendly cleaning solutions that are effective yet gentle on upholstery fabrics. These cleaning agents are specifically formulated to dissolve stains, break down dirt, and eliminate odours without causing damage or leaving behind harmful residues. We also offer a Fabric Protection Service after cleaning, to lessen soiling and staining of your beautiful upholstery.

Myth #6: Professional cleaning takes a long time and disrupts my day
At JAE, we understand your busy schedule. Our cleaning services are designed for convenience and efficiency. We offer flexible scheduling options and ensure a quick drying time, minimising disruption to your daily routine.
