We sit in our favorite chair, or lie around on our sofas as a family, after work, school, shopping, or playing daily. Our children spend a lot of time here watching their favorite programs on the TV. Sometimes we eat and drop crumbs. When we are sick we like to lounge around on the sofa. Our pets come in from outside covered in dust and pollen and climb all over our upholstery.
Everything that gets on our clothes gets transferred to the fabrics and penetrates the padding on our upholstery. Not to mention the natural oils and dead skin cells our bodies produce are a perfect place for dust mites and bacteria to grow. And just like our carpet our upholstery acts like a filter for the air.
