How To Keep Your Furniture Looking Nice

Did you know we steam clean upholstery as well as carpets? Well, surprise we do! Yep, we use our professional equipment and trained, certified technicians to deep clean your upholstery. Sectionals, sofas, loveseats, ottomans, chairs, we do it all. As long as it is a material that can be cleaned, we clean it. Leather, vinyl, white cotton or suede are all fabrics that should not be steam cleaned do to the variation of different results you could end up with. Some of those materials could have fibers that contain sugars that could dye the material a different color once it has been steamed and dried. Other materials could shrink which could result in a tear in the material or furniture that can become very uncomfortable.

Upholstery Cleaning

Steam cleaning your upholstery can help to rid the furniture of allergens, dust mites and even possible mold spores, as well as helping your furniture look as new as possible. Steam cleaning has a much more effective result when compared to vacuuming. Now, we still recommend vacuuming your cloth furniture regularly. But, Vacuuming alone will not keep your furniture as clean or as nice looking as a good deep steam cleaning. When we steam clean your upholstery, we use a safe, natural pre spray solution to slightly wet the fabric being cleaned. This cleaning solution is not the same as we use for our carpet cleaning. Using to high of a PH spray, can damage your upholstery or reduce the life, as it deteriorates the material quicker. Once the pre spray has had a chance to dwell, this usually takes 5-10 minutes, the its time for it to work its magic, loosening up the dirt and grime. We then take our upholstery cleaning tools and get to work. We spray the upholstery with a high temperature water, yet safe enough for the fine fabric material, and a pressure that is lower than we use while cleaning carpet. This helps to prevent soaking the padding underneath the material. Once the material has been sprayed and wet, we then extract all the grime and dirt out with a very high pressure truck mounted cleaning unites. When we are finished with an area or peace of furniture, we will bring in our industrial air movers, these help the dry time decrease substantially. During cleaning we will make sure to clean up any excess moisture that may fall onto a hard surface. We recommend leaving any cushions in the positions we put them in, as many times removable cushions will be left on there side to ensure both sides are able to dry properly.

Having your upholstery cleaned regularly will make your furniture last longer and look better than you might think.
