HOW DOES UPHOLSTERY / FURNITURE GET DIRTY AND WHY DOESN’T IT SEEM TO SHOW?

uphimageAllergists, upholsterers and cleaners all agree, that DUST is the #1 enemy of upholstered furniture. Upholstery fabric is very thin and can be made from different fabric types. Upholstery is often designed to hide the dirt with the various patterns and textures available. This means we have to use cleaning detergents and cleaning processes that are specific for upholstery / furniture.

Gritty matter blows in through open doors and windows and impregnates itself on your furniture cushions and back. Think of how much dust would accumulate on a table if it were never dusted. That same amount is on your sofa, too. You just can’t see it. Then when you sit on the cushion the oils from your skin compress the dirt into the fabric where it’s almost impossible to remove with vacuum cleaning, however it will help some but not remove the embedded soil. Your furniture is literally awash with soil within the short span of just a year(with an average family).

OUR PROCESS

It begins with an on-site analysis of your upholstered furniture – especially any problem areas.  We use powerful but safe upholstery cleaning detergents to break up and remove the soils. You can rest assured that your upholstery will be cleaned right the first time, without any damage to the fabric. The results speak for themselves (look below for before, during and after photos): cleaner, longer wear time, and improved air quality. We will remove months – years worth of dirt, dust and other pollutants that settle in the crevices of your upholstered furniture. You can rest assured that your upholstery will smell great, and will last longer – protecting your investment. Just as with our carpet cleaning service, you have the option to have a fabric protector applied to your upholstery after it is cleaned. It will create an invisible barrier around the fibers improving the resistance to dry soils, water-based stains, and daily wear and tear.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: The tag on my furniture says to dry clean it, can your company still clean it ? A: Yes we can the cleaning codes on the furniture tag are often confusing for the consumer.  The tag or ‘Manufacturing Liability Code’ is required to have a recommended cleaning method on it, however this does not mean that it is the method required.

Q: Will cleaning harm the protector applied to my furniture when I bought it ? A: While cleaning can impact the protective coating; dry soils that accumulate over time, and daily living and use have more impact than the cleaning. We can reapply this protective coating after the cleaning.
