Upholstery gets exposed to dirt and stains just like carpets. Over time carpets will require a deep cleaning by a professional. The same is said for upholstery. To help keep upholstery beautiful, it is important to regularly vacuum the fabric and clean stains as they occur. However, there will come a time when your upholstery will need a little bit more help to clean and restore its beauty. When using a professional, they will thoroughly deep clean the upholstery and can even make it look like new. For those who would like to understand what professional upholstery cleaners do, Carpet Care 2000 will share some of the cleaning techniques used to restore upholstery.
Vacuum Upholstery with Brush Attachment
All professional upholstery cleaners will start by vacuuming the upholstery thoroughly before they begin cleaning the furniture. Vacuuming is essential when cleaning furniture. If they skip this part, then as they use water and cleaning agents on the upholstery, it will just create a muddy murky appearance. Essentially it will not clean the surface at all. If you ever hire a professional upholstery cleaner and they skip this step, it’s a major red flag. Additionally, you will notice that professional upholstery cleaners will use a high powered vacuum with a number of attachments. Each attachment is designed to reach the tightest areas of the furniture and clean different surface materiel types. Some attachments will remove more dirt than hair while others will remove hair and other forms of debris. In short, each tool has a purpose and often you will see a cleaner switch between the different tools and attachments to ensure a deep and thorough vacuuming before they begin the cleaning process.
Cleaning Sofas & Couches
There are a number of materials used for upholstery and it is important to use the right cleaning method for each type of material. Some methods may use a chem-dry approach, while others may use steam cleaning. The upholstery material will determine how the cleaners approach the cleaning of your furniture. Make sure when scheduling the cleaning you let the cleaner know what type of upholstery material you have so they come properly prepared. However, in most cases they are ready for any fabric type. You may notice they will focus on removing stains before cleaning the reset of the upholstery. This can vary depending on how deep or bad the stains are.
Hot Water Extraction Upholstery Cleaning
After they use the cleaning agent to wash the material, they will then extract all of the moisture and cleaning agents out of the upholstery. This is where the magic happens. They use a high powered vacuum to remove the moisture and cleaning agents out of the furniture. At the same time, the dirt and stains will be sucked out as well. It is important the cleaners do a thorough job extracting the moisture out of the furniture or mold or mildew will begin to develop. Sometimes fans are used to help speed up the drying process. Once they are done extracting the moisture, all that’s left is for the furniture to dry completely. Once the upholstery is done your furniture is clean you will have almost new looking furniture. An added plus is that all of the dirt and allergens are now gone. You can now enjoy a cleaner environment and clean furniture.
