The Couch: The Dirtiest Part of Your Home

The Couch: The Dirtiest Part of Your Home

How much time per day do you spend on your couch? Your couch is where you watch TV, take naps, eat, read, scroll social media, and spend time with your loved ones. If you have pets, it’s the place you pet and play with them. Think about that for a second.

Your couch gets worked hard, daily. As you can imagine, it gets dirty, quickly.

Couches Aren’t Cleaned Enough

The truth for some people, is that they spend more time on their couch than anywhere else in the home––including their bed. Yet, we vacuum. We change our sheets all the time. So why is it that we don’t deep clean our couches?

A few years ago, the Hygiene Council conducted a survey that found 61% of people have never had their upholstery professionally cleaned or sanitized––and those who have, typically have only done it once or twice throughout their couch’s lifespan.

Nobody would go years without washing your bedsheets, or your clothes, or even your carpets. Why does upholstery get the short end of the stick? It doesn’t make any sense.

What’s Typically Found On The Average Household Couch 

Another study found that the average family sofa holds MORE bacteria than a toilet seat. What?! How does it make you feel that the place where you lay down and lounge around on every day is more of a risk to your health than a restroom. Gross.

Soft upholstery fibers are the ideal place for bacteria to foster, grow, and spread. Upholstery fibers soak up contaminants like a sponge and allow them to thrive unless eliminated with the right professional upholstery cleaning method.
