Upholstery should be cleaned professionally is not a recommended as a do-it-yourself job.
Different types of fibers and fabrics mean the job needs to be done carefully to protect your furniture. We will inspect, test, pre-treat and clean your upholstery using professional tools and chemicals that are safe and appropriate to your needs.
Below are the types of cleaning methods that we use.
HOT WATER EXTRACTION (STEAM) CLEANING – Hot water extraction, or steam cleaning, begins with vacuuming and is followed by pre-conditioning. Hot water and detergent is then applied to the fabric. The pressurized solution is injected into the fabric. Suspended soil is removed by combining the flushing action of injected solutions with wet vacuuming. This method of cleaning is used on fabrics whose fibers, dyes and construction are not affected by water-based cleaners.
DRY FOAM CLEANING – Dry foam cleaning is a minimum-moisture method in which, after vacuuming, a dense foam is applied to the fabric. The foam is then agitated with a hand bonnet and brushed in to remove soil suspension, and the excess foam (along with suspended soil) is extracted by means of a wet vacuum. This method is safe on delicate fabrics or on those subject to browning or bleeding.
DRY SOLVENT CLEANING – The dry solvent cleaning method is reserved primarily for delicate or non-colorfast fabrics that can be damaged when using water-based (wet) cleaning processes. The term “dry solvent” refers to non-water, hydrocarbon-based compound, commonly referred to as “dry cleaning solvents.” Dry solvent cleaning is considered safe on almost all natural and synthetic fibers, and on most dyes as well.
LEATHER CLEANING – Leather is made by treating animal hide or skin with a tanning agent. The leather used on upholstery usually comes from cowhides, but pig and sheepskin may also be used. The primary concern is to control pH and cleaning agents so that the finish is not damaged and natural oils are not removed. Using towels and special cleaners/conditioners, we will clean your leather furniture to it’s best possible condition.
