The American Lung Association statistics show that more people are suffering from allergies and other respiratory health problems. They suggest that the reason for this upsurge is poor bedroom hygiene. According to
CNN, at least 4 in 5 American homes have a bed with dust mites. 46% of people change their beddings only once a month, and this is a recipe for many health issues. When people neglect to wash their comforters; dust mite, dead skin, oils, sweat and food crumbs gather, exposing them to STDs, breathing problems, eczema and other health problems.
Doctors recommend that comforters are washed every other week and even more regularly when you are sick. Professional cleaning is necessary to truly rid a comforter of disease-causing pathogens. Professionals use a dry solvent instead of water on comforters to prevent the growth of mold and mildew. This is most important for down comforters as they are most susceptible to mold especially when left damp. Comforters have different fillings that require gentle care to keep them fresh.
Turning to professional laundry services is the best choice for maximum stain removal. Dead skin, oil, wine and other stains leave a damaging impression on the comforter not to mention the awful smell. Professionals know exactly what product to use for a specific item to leave it clean without ruining it. Comforters come in different shapes and sizes making it often impossible to fit them into a washing machine. That is no problem at a professional’s as they have large, heavy-duty equipment to handle large sized, oddly shaped comforters.
In addition to advanced washing equipment, you are assured that the comforter will be perfectly dry when you pick it up. Even if we are successful at washing a comforter at home, it is a major test trying to dry it. Bundling a wet comforter over a hanging line is often a task in futility and shouldn’t even be attempted in the first place as it only causes the down to settle at the bottom.
Having all comforters washed professionally even if they can be hand washed is a good idea. Professional cleaning solvents breakdown debris gathered over a long period to leave your favorites looking fresh and as good as new. You might be hesitant about taking a luxurious comforter to the dry cleaners afraid that it will ruin the construction. Don’t be afraid anymore because professionals understand that different materials demand unique care techniques in order to preserve them during cleaning.
Excellent customer service by a professional cleaner serves as a guarantee that the comforter will be cared for better than you can wash it at home. Some people are initially turned off by the cost of a single professional dry cleaning session but upon assessing the benefits, they are convinced that it is worth it.
Ethical professionals understand the sentimental value many people have attached to their comforters. In light of this, they have insurance covering these precious items in case of damage. What’s better than knowing you will get a replacement for each comforter that is accidentally damaged during cleaning? Indeed, professional comforter washing is the best bet for most all who want to keep warm and clean this winter. After collecting your comforters from
the professional cleaner’s they will certainly look fuller and feel more comfortable.
