Furniture and Upholstery Cleaning
The products and tools we employ are the latest on the market. Check out how we can make your upholstery cleaner than ever!
First, there is a pre-inspection to be performed. Thus, our specialists can understand exactly what problems they will encounter. A very important step that helps to avoid any problems.
Color Fastness Test
The next step is to perform a quick dye test on the fabric. This determines colorfastness. We can then determine the best and safest cleaning procedure for your fabric type. As the wrong process could lead to damage.
Afterward, a solution to pre-condition the furniture helps to loosen the soil. Looser soil will come up easier. This maximizes the cleaning process during extraction.
In the next step, the soil embedded in the fabric is extracted. We rinse thoroughly. It’s repeated as many times as needed to make sure the upholstery looks crisp, clean, and great.
This step is only implemented when needed. We use a spotting solution if the spots/stains do not respond well to our pre-conditioning and extraction processes.
You can purchase an extra protector. We strongly recommend this as it will help maintain the fabric of your upholstered furniture for much longer than normal.
In the after-cleaning phase, we use powerful air movers (if necessary) to reduce moisture and speed up the process of drying out your upholstery. Therefore, you can start using your furniture sooner!
We perform a final inspection once we are finished. We want to make sure you are 100% satisfied when we leave, so if you are present while we clean, we ask you what you think with regards to our work and make sure we take care of any concerns you may have.
That is the short, nitty-gritty details of the 8-step process. Keep reading to learn more about a few other items.
We Inspect and Prep the Furniture
First, an inspection is conducted to ensure we know where all the stains and spots are located. This will ensure that we do not miss anything. Next, we identify the fabric type in this phase. The correct cleaning method can then be used. We finish it with a colorfastness test. After that, the dirt and soil are removed from the upholstered surface in a pre-cleaning process. Before "cleaning" the surface, we use a stiff brush or dry cloth to remove any loose dirt and debris. We may use a pre-conditioner to loosen the soil. This facilitates the extraction of dirt, grime, and lint trapped in the upholstery.
We Clean the Upholstery
The solution or process we use will depend on the type of material. Depending on the type of furniture we are cleaning, the process will vary but usually involves steam cleaning. To eliminate all stains and spotty areas we utilize an advanced steam cleaning tool coupled with the appropriate chemicals.
OPTIONAL: If you choose to use this service. We will also use a disinfectant to help prevent any future build-up of germs and allergens from occurring again. An antimicrobial and/or sanitizing agent is sprayed on your furniture with a high-pressure sprayer after the dirt and bacteria have been removed.
We Protect the Upholstery
Optional, but recommended. Our protective barrier prevents stains from permeating the fibers of your beautiful fabric. This will also keep future spills from staining your furniture. The line of water-resistant protectors we offer is impressive.
Professional Upholstery Cleaning: What Is It?
Professional upholstery cleaning is a process of thoroughly vacuuming, shampooing with soap or other detergents, or steam-cleaning. By using this method, soil that is invisible to the human eye can be removed. Clean, fresh-smelling and stunning upholstery is the result.
Why Does Upholstery Cleaning Matter?
The goal is not just to look good, but also to prevent people from getting sick; this involves getting rid of germs as well. Because upholstery breeds allergens, germs, and bacteria that contribute to all kinds of health issues and trigger current allergies such as asthma, it is vital to look out for this when cleaning upholstery.
The smells and odors trapped in home furniture are often hidden from homeowners. You can call this being “nose blind”. If you are around a particular smell for long enough, your body becomes accustomed to it. This is exactly why upholstery cleaning is so important. Other people smell it, you can't, so you gotta take care of it.
Additionally, there is the aesthetic aspect. Having dirty upholstery can be a real eyesore, so you must clean it as soon as possible. A stained couch is the last thing anyone wants when they walk into their living room each day. Furthermore, if you keep your upholstery dirty, it will probably not last as long or may even deteriorate more rapidly as a result of the accumulation of dirt and debris, which breaks down the fabric faster. You might be unable to save your upholstery if you keep it dirty for too long. Having your furniture cleaned can help them last longer as well as save you money in the long run.

How Does Upholstery Cleaning Benefit You?
Furniture that is clean, hygienic, stain-free, and dust-free does create a healthy atmosphere in one's home. The following are some other advantages of cleaning upholstery:
Air Quality: Clean, stain-free furniture keeps the air fresh. Old, dirty, stained, and dirty upholstery may compromise the quality of the air in the room. A noticeable odor hits you when you enter a room. Yet, what you don't notice are the invisible micro-dust particles, bacteria, and pollen. With professional upholstery cleaning services, you can avoid all of these problems.
Upholstery Lifespan: By keeping your furniture clean, you can prolong its lifespan. Keeping it dirty causes it to degrade faster than clean, good-looking upholstery.
Cost-Effective: Think that it’s cheaper to simply replace your upholstery once it starts to get too worn, old, and soiled? Think again, as replacing furniture is not an easy ordeal by any means. An upholstery cleaning company will be able to provide a 'refresh' much more economically than replacing the items.
Better Aesthetic Appearance: After working all day, do you feel better if you've had a shower? No doubt you do, and the same holds for your upholstery. Walking into a room and seeing everything is clean will make you feel good. You will also preserve the integrity of the fabric since clean upholstery prevents deterioration. The result is that you get a home that looks great and gives you a feeling of pride in your home.
Keep your upholstery clean for a healthy and happy home!
