Upholstered furniture should be deep cleaned at least once every year if you want to increase the longevity and maintain the fresh look of new furniture. Because upholstered furniture can be made up of a variety of fabrics, it is important that the cleaning technician be able to correctly identify the fabric. Our experienced technicians can tackle any difficult stain, including pet odor and dander. A fabric protector must be re-applied with every upholstery cleaning to increase the longevity and preserve the fresh look of the upholstered furniture.
12 STEP UPHOLSTERY CLEANING SYSTEM
1. Pre-Inspection. The pre-inspection will help us to determine what type of cleaning solutions and techniques will be used. We will also point out any potential permanent stains or areas of concern.
2. Area Preparation. We will prepare the area where the upholstery will be cleaned to protect your surrounding furnishings.
3. Pre-Vacuum.All textiles should be vacuumed thoroughly before cleaning. This step will remove dry soils and any loose particles from cracks and crevices.
4. Pre-Treat. Depending on your fabric and soil condition, a special solution will be applied to “emulsify” the soil.
5. Pre-Spot. Any potentially difficult spots will be pre-treated with special solutions to increase chances of removal; extra charges may apply.
6. Pre-Groom. The fabric will then be gently groomed using soft upholstery brushes to loosen the soil.
7. Soil Extraction and Rinse.The soil is then extracted from the fabric with a gentle, controlled rinse.
8. Post Stains. Any remaining stains will be treated with special stain removal products; extra charges may apply.
9. Neutralize. The fabric is then pH balanced to maintain its soft, fresh feel.
