Couch cushions are household items that we use every day without a second thought, unaware of the assortment of dirt and pollutants beneath their surface. Even after regular cleaning, we may still be surprised to see what’s buried under the cushion covers. According to one article in the Chicago Tribune, we may be better off not knowing. Professional upholsterers have found spider webs and mouse droppings inside couches, while allergy experts also mention the disgusting allergens that the naked eye may not see, such as dust mites and pet dander.
Dust mites are an often-overlooked concern because they are microscopic and they don’t disrupt normal human activity. However, they can quickly multiply and cause allergic reactions through their feces, which makes them a problem for people suffering from serious allergic reactions. There can be millions of them gathering inside your couch cushions, and there’s only so much cleaning can do.
Regular cleanings might help stem the tide of dirt and allergens, but when you’ve had a couch for so many years, the build-up of contaminants may be too plentiful for any cleaning to fix. If you’ve had your couch cushions for more than a decade, it may be time for a couch cushion replacement.
