What is Upholstery?
Upholstery is the art of providing furniture with padding, fabrics, or leather covers. The webbed platform of the furniture is stuffed with various materials and fabrics to provide shape, form and comfort.
What is upholstery cleaning?
Upholstery cleaning is art of cleaning the fabric used to upholster your furniture. Coming back to a dirty, smelly, unclean furniture in your home is not something most of us would look forward to. Stains at the edges of couches in particular can be unpleasant and difficult to get rid of. Consideration of the fabric type and the area to clean should determine the cleaning method.
It is recommended to have your upholstery cleaned every six months. If you have children or pets, then the cleaning should be professionally done more often.
Before any cleaning, we inspect your upholstery to determine the type of fabric. This allows us to choose the most suitable cleaning method. Moreover, we search for any tears, rips, or loose stitches and offer guidance as necessary.
Vacuuming is necessary to get rid of any debris or dry soil particles, in preparation for the actual cleaning.
Preconditioning an agitation
Grease-ladened dirt needs to be broken down for an easier clean. A pre-conditioner is applied for this purpose. The area is then agitated using specialized machinery to provide the desired clean.
Depending on the type of cleaning method adopted, the cleaning area needs to be dried. We use a specialized machine that ensures that all the water or dampness is extracted, leaving your furniture clean and dry.
If your upholstery is left damp after a clean, browning may occur. To manage this, ensure that you have your upholstery cleaning entrusted to a professional.
This may result from the use of a non-compatible detergent and compound for a particular fabric. To mitigate this, seek advice from a professional upholstery cleaning company.
As much as our upholstery may fade from application of various cleaning detergents, most of the fading can also be attributed to exposure to the Ultra Violet Rays of the sun. Investing in a suitable window tinting solution will go a long way in protecting your clean upholstery.
It is our standard operating procedure to have a pre-cleaning inspection of all your upholstery before embarking on the cleaning. This not only helps us identify any tears, but also allows us to provide the necessary guidance.
As expensive as furniture is, it is rather common to see the maintenance, or upkeep of our furniture to be overlooked. That brand new couch you brought home years ago doesn't look as inviting as it did in the department store.
