Upholstery Cleaning

Get Upholstery Clean And Protected

Furniture can be upholstered in practically any kind of fabric or fiber. Regardless of the type of upholstery you've chosen for your furniture - fabric, plastic or leather, for example - it needs to be handled properly for maximum wear.

At least once a month, you should take special care to clean the undersides of cushions, furniture bases, bottoms and backs, and of course, between cushions and deep down into any crevices. Vacuuming only removes dirt and dust. It does nothing to battle mites, or to remove the natural build up of upholstery pollutants, such as sloughed skin cells, pet dander, body oils and more. The only way to battle this kind of build-up is to hire a professional upholstery cleaning organization. Professional upholstery cleaning is actually recommended by many furniture manufacturers as a vital step in preserving your upholstery.

Upholstery cleaning usually follows this basic course of action...

  • Upholstery is inspected for problem areas, such as stains, spots, discoloration or wear.
  • Spots and stains are often pretreated for maximum removal success.
  • Discoloration and other signs of wear may or may not be treatable. Make sure that the results you expect are attainable by requesting an explanation of how these areas will be handled.
  • Surface dirt and dust are removed from every surface using high suction vacuums. This step may involve brushing the furniture before vacuuming and, of course, removing any removable cushions for full access.
  • Deep cleaning is often conducted using a method similar to that used for deep cleaning carpets - water extraction (also called steam cleaning). In this method, hot steam is applied to the fabric to loosen embedded dirt, which is simultaneously removed (along with any moisture) by extraction vacuums.
