In case you were wondering if your furniture would benefit from
a thorough Professional Cleaning,
Try these 4 simple tests:
TEST #1: THE "SLAP" TEST -- surface dust
Place a bright light over the top of one of your sofa cushions and, using a stick (like a paint mixing stick or wooden spoon), whack the cushion 2-3 times. Observe the amount of dust that is released into the air. If you see a cloud of dust, your furniture needs to be cleaned.
TEST #2: THE BLACK CLOTH TEST -- embedded particulate
Using your vacuum cleaner attachment nozzle, take a piece of thin black cloth and rubber band it to the end of the vacuum hose. Let it drape into the hose a little way. Attach the upholstery tool on the end of the hose. Now turn the vacuum on and run it across the top of the cushion. Turn off the vacuum, remove the upholstery tool, and observe all the dead skin, dander, and other particles. If you see accumulations of fine particles, your furniture needs to be cleaned.
TEST #3: THE WHITE TOWEL TEST -- protein soils
Take a small amount of Windex and spray it on a white terrycloth towel. Then briskly scrub it across one of your seat cushions or arm covers. Look at the towel. Any questions?
TEST #4: THE SNIFF TEST -- malodors
Completely exhale. Place your nose above the seat cushions and waft the surface air to your nose using one hand in a fanning motion. Do you notice any odors? Soil accumulations foster bacterial growth that feed on the contaminants and creatures living in the fibers of your furniture fabrics. If your furniture smells funky, it's an indication that it should be professionally cleaned as soon as possible.
