Living rooms are the heart of any home as it is where families relax, enjoy their favorite TV shows, or curl up with a good book, making living rooms an important space in any home.
It is also one of the rooms that will see the most wear and tear, as it is used daily by the entire family. If you are not in the habit of vacuuming and cleaning your furniture regularly, chances are it will be harboring mold and dust mites that can affect your family’s overall health.
Older furniture can also lose its support and cushioning over time. Most sofas and chair cushion will need to be replaced at least every 5 years to stay comfortable and clean.
You will know your sofa or living room cushioning needs replacing when:
Sitting on your sofa becomes uncomfortable – If you have back pain or feel uncomfortable when sitting on your sofa, you may not be getting the support you need.
You can feel your springs – Feeling your sofa springs when seated, is a clear indication that your sofa foam has lost its support.
You are suffering from allergies – Sofas and living room furniture are regularly used and are often embedded with sweat, pet hair, body oil, and dead skin cells that cause dust mites, mold, and mildew. Even if you do not suffer from allergies, constantly inhaling allergens can cause headaches, stuffiness, and a runny nose.
Replacing your living room cushioning is a smart way to maintain a healthy, comfortable living space that can be enjoyed by your entire family.
