upholstery-cleaningNeed to have your upholstery cleaned? If so, you need to be choosey about which Alabaster carpet cleaning company that you hire. Unlike carpet, upholstery can be easily ruined with a poor choice of carpet cleaning. Most carpet cleaners take a one step approach to upholstery and treat every piece the same. This is a recipe for disaster and can lead to some ruined upholstery. Don’t let an untrained carpet cleaner ruin your furniture. At Cross Country, our technicians take the time to do it right. Here is what is involved in a typical upholstery cleaning.

Upholstery Cleaning Steps

  • Step One
    First our cleaning technicians will take the time to evaluate the piece to be cleaned. They will look for the fabric content, the type of construction, they will look for any damage that may be present and finally, they will analyze the level and type of soiling. After taking all of these things into consideration, a cleaning method is chosen.
  • Step Two
    Your furniture is dry vacuumed to remove loose soil and clean out the crevices.
  • Step Three
    If wet cleaning is the chosen method, an appropriate pre-treatment is applied to the fabric and agitated.
  • Step Four
    The pre-treatment is rinsed from the fabric, leaving your upholstery clean, soft and smelling fresh.
  • Step Five
    We will finish up by checking the piece for any spots that might have made it through the cleaning. They are treated and the upholstery is placed in a good position for drying.
