Think about how much time you spend on the couch relaxing, napping, hanging out with family and friends, or even eating. This is definitely a spot where we spend a lot of time, and where memories are made. Now consider how often you deep clean your couch. If you’re like a lot of people, the answer is probably not very often.
How often do people clean their couches?
It’s an interesting paradox that we spend so much time on our couches, yet we clean them less often than just about anything else.
In fact, in a recent survey, the Hygiene Council discovered that 61% of people have either never professionally cleaned or sanitized their sofas, and for those who have, they’ve only done so once or twice ever.
Most of us wouldn’t consider going years without washing our bed sheets or clothes, yet this is often the case with the couch. The fact that most people basically never clean their couches is a pretty disturbing thought, right?
What can be found on the average household couch
A recent study conducted by Express determined that the average family couch contains more bacteria than a toilet seat. Basically, the place where we spend the majority of our time with family every day is more hazardous than where we use the restroom. Yikes!
Disease-causing bacteria and harmful allergens thrive and spread on where we spend so much of our time. But this doesn’t have to be the case when you keep up with professional upholstery cleaning.
