Facts About Upholstery Cleaning
Does the fabric on your furniture look dull or even like it’s worn? Microscopic dust particles are to blame. They have jagged edges—just like knives. They’re scratching the fibers of your upholstery. Having your furniture professionally cleaned at the same as your carpets isn’t an extra expense. It’s a wise investment.
Professional upholstery cleaning extends the life of your furniture. It removes the dirt, debris, stains, and odors that cause furniture to look worn and unattractive. Certified professional cleaners know how to effectively clean furniture upholstery fabric, using eco-friendly methods and equipment specifically made for the job.
The high-powered washers we use are better at removing stains and extracting debris deep in furniture fabric than any DIY method. You can actually cause damage and void any warranty for your furniture if you use too much water or detergent. Comfortable fabric used for furniture is often woven to be porous so it can breathe. Excess cleaning moisture that isn’t extracted can cause mold to grow in the cushions. An incorrect cleaning method can also damage the fabric’s color.
Take a look at your sofa and chairs. You’ll likely see discoloration on the arms and the back. Fabric absorbs the oils in our skin and hair. We’re trained to inspect and determine the best way to clean your upholstery.
- Don’t be alarmed if we suggest steam cleaning. It’s not what you think. Steam isn’t even applied. This method is used to remove soluble soil. We apply a fine mist of water and special upholstery soap—which is sprayed onto the fabric and instantly vacuumed up.
- We may suggest shampooing. Our technicians will apply water and upholstery soap with a rotary brush. This cleans the surface only. It doesn’t penetrate as deeply into the fabric as steam cleaning.
- Leather Upholstery
A leather sofa or chair can last 4 to 5 times longer than other upholstery fabric—but only with cleaning and conditioning. Leather furniture requires special care. You may not realize how soiled your leather furniture is. Here’s a simple way to find out. Rub a clean white cotton towel over the back and arms of your leather furniture. If it comes away to grey, it’s time to have your leather cleaned and conditioned.
Let’s be frank about leather. It’s preserved animal skin. It can be ruined if you don’t know how to clean it, or the wrong solutions are used on it. Harsh chemicals can cause permanent staining. Or, they can dissolve the special coating that protects the leather.
Besides soil damage, leather loses moisture and softness over time. Professional cleaning doesn’t just clean leather upholstered furniture. The process also opens the pores of the leather so they’re able to accept rejuvenating moisturizers. Yes, in many respects, we’re treating your leather furniture to a day at the spa when it’s cleaned!
