How Often Do You Clean It...Under the Couch Cushions

Yep, that's right...that oh so neglected place that we almost always NEVER clean until one of the kids looses a toy or sock or the remote control disappears...and we apprehensively lift the couch cushion for fear of what it may look like under there.
 How often do we really think lets clean UNDER the couch cushions. This is one of the mysterious places that logically shouldn't get dirty but does. Every time I lift the cushions I am always amazed at the stuff that is under them, how exactly does a sock get smack dab in the middle of the underside of the cushion???
 Either way, it does get dirty and depending on your families habits, # of kids and animals, what you find will vary. Mine mostly gets dirty with dog hair and the occasional bakugan or silly band. We don't eat in the living room so thankfully I don't have to worry about anything more than an extra pet growing under there.
 I really don't think about this area often, usually once or twice a year. So here I go, for all my friends who know me personally and see my house spic and span I am afraid I may crush your expectations, 
I am revealing the ugly truth of what my couch beholds...

I really don't know what that is or how it got there...
Now time to whip out the trusty vacuum, I only use my attachments for the corners and sides, other than that I just vacuum the couch like I would the carpet. The vibrations loosen all the dirt, bouncing it around and allowing it to vac up easier (that what I tell myself at least), and then I do the same for the cushions.

And 10 minutes later...


Now it's ready for me again!

And of coarse you know I'm gonna ask...HOW OFTEN DO YOU CLEAN...UNDER YOUR COUCH CUSHIONS??? Any tips or tricks???

Once every 2 months? When I remember? Why is it when I was growing up I would find money (coins) and here I only find crumbs, and occasional lego pieces?

Once every couple of weeks. My kiddo's like to use the cushions for play (lava, building "houses", etc)so I get nice reminders that it's time to vacuum under the cushions. I also vacuum under the couch regularly. They like to push the couch away from the wall and play house or pirates or wherever their imagination brings them. :)

I am going to vacuum mine tomorrow, but the last time I vacuumed them was probably 5 months ago? So probably 2-3 times a year and I'm good. We only find crumbs and dog hair also...but thankfully short dog hair :).

My kid accidentally spilled a soft drink on the couch, and I had no idea what to do next. I randomly called lounge chair clean Adelaide by extracting contact from Google, and I must say, they are worth every penny spent!
I got a call from them immediately and they sent a team of professionals to my home for an inspection. They not only expelled the soft drink out from my couch but also made sure that the couch is dry so that it doesn’t attract any mold and mildew. I would recommend them to everyone. Thanks Fresh Upholstery cleaning.

I live alone in the city because of my job. In order to tackle with my loneliness I recently brought a pet at my home. That little cat is the sweetest little thing in the world. Unfortunately, one day when I came back to my home from work, I saw some scratches on the upholstery of my chair. Apparently, my cat was playing on it and due to her claws the upholstery got detoriated. I got tensed as the property was my owner's. I started browsing online for some help, and soon came across the Clean Sleep Upholstery Cleaning Canberra who have expertise in this work. I immediately booked an appointment, and they came the very next day. To my surprise after they did their work, each and every scratch had disappeared and a few spots and stains were also gone. They are the best, perfect savior. Thanks Clean Sleep Upholstery Cleaning.

I am too lazy to work and investing my energy in cleaning the stuff is not me! And, so I usually hire cleaning companies to do the tasks for me. Lately I have been very disappointed with the kind of services my old cleaning company provided.

Basically, we went on a foreign tour for a month, and when we returned, my upholstery, couch – everything was coated with a thick layer of dust.My husband suggested Sofa cleaning Adelaide as his friends have hired them a few times. And yes, they actually worked wonders. They not only helped in cleaning the upholstery, but also offered us a quick discount as a part of their promotional scheme. I am glad and satisfied with the services I received. Without a doubt, they are the best!
