Why Should You Pull Your Couch Off the Wall?

May 31, 2024

So, why are we so thrilled about moving your couch? Because there’s a world of hidden treasures under there, and we’ve got the tips to help you clean like a pro while having a blast. Let’s dive into the whimsical world of under-furniture cleaning!

Why Should You Pull Your Couch Off the Wall?

Your couch is the cozy spot for TV marathons, board game nights, and lazy Sunday reads, often with snacks in tow. But those popcorn kernels and sticky soda spills don’t magically disappear. They turn into stains and invite unwanted guests (hello, pests!). And if you’ve got pets, who knows what surprises are hiding under there—chew toys, fur tufts, or even forgotten catnip mice.

That’s why exploring the dark, mysterious realms under your furniture should be a regular part of your cleaning routine. It’s not just about cleanliness; it’s about creating a healthier, happier home.

How Often Should You Clean Your Sofa?

We recommend deep cleaning your sofa once or twice a year. If you have pets or notice any funky odors, you might want to do it more often. Slipcovers and cushions? Give them a wash once or twice a year too. And don’t forget professional upholstery cleaning every couple of years to keep things fresh and bacteria-free. A clean sofa means better air quality and a healthier home.

How Often Should You Vacuum Under the Couch?

How often you clean under the couch depends on your household. Got a full house with kids and pets? Aim to vacuum under and behind your sofa once a month. At the very least, pull it out and clean twice a year. Trust us, it’s worth it.

Enlist Help and Be Safe

No one wants a sore back or scratched floors from a cleaning adventure. Grab a buddy to help move the couch and consider using furniture sliders to make it easier. Safety first, always!

Clean the Couch Itself

Since you rarely see the back of your couch, take this chance to clean it thoroughly. Vacuum out those stale corn chips and mysterious pocket lint. And don’t forget the upholstery—special care for leather, and a tailored routine for fabric.

Ride the Deep-Cleaning Wave

Once the couch is out, why not tackle those hidden patches of floor, carpet, and walls? Check off a few deep-cleaning tasks like carpet cleaning, wall stain removal, and sweeping hardwood floors.

Enjoy the Perks of Finding Lost Items

You might find your missing sunglasses, your dog’s favorite toy, or even enough change for a coffee. Or, maybe it’s the perfect time to rearrange the furniture and refresh the room’s vibe. Cleaning can be a treasure hunt—enjoy the journey!

And, hey, if you’d rather spend your time NOT doing all of this – you can always hire Two Bettys Green Cleaning Co!
