upholstery-cleaningEvery cleaning service in Homewood also offers upholstery cleaning but few excel at it. At Cross Country, our cleaning technicians are experts in upholstery care. This is important because there are a lot of pitfalls in upholstery cleaning that need to be avoided. If the wrong cleaning method is used, a piece can easily be destroyed. To choose the proper method, we must look at several things. First, we determine what your furniture is made of. All materials have their own characteristics. Cotton behaves differently to cleaning than Rayon for example. Next we look at how the fabric is constructed. This is important because many different weaves and backings are used. Finally, we look at the type and the extent of soiling. Only after taking all of these things into consideration can we choose the best cleaning method.

Upholstery Cleaning Process

  • Step One
    First we examine the piece to be cleaned to determine the best method.
  • Step Two
    Next, we dry vacuum the upholstery to remove loose soil and all of that “stuff” that gets trapped in the cracks.
  • Step Three
    Then, a pre-treatment or pre-spray is applied to the fabric. The type used depends on the earlier examination.
  • Step Four
    Finally, we rinse the piece clean, treating stubborn spots as we go.
  • Step Five
    In the last step, we position your furniture and your cushions in the perfect way for proper drying.
