upholstery-cleaningUpholstery cleaning is not like carpet cleaning. There is no one approach that will clean every piece. Unfortunately, many Hoover cleaning services take that very approach and clean every piece the same. This will work much of the time, but can lead to some occasional disasters. At Cross Country, our cleaning technicians take the time to do the job right. This means testing the material to determine the content, examining the construction and thoroughly evaluating the type and level of soiling. Only after doing these things can the proper upholstery cleaning method be chosen.

What is included in our upholstery cleaning.

Our upholstery cleaning process begins with the analysis of your upholstery to determine content, construction and degree of soiling. We also look for any damaged areas that we will need to be cautious of. Next we vacuum the upholstery to remove dry soil and clean out the inevitable debris that is trapped in the crevices. Then, a pre-treatment is applied to your upholstery and agitated or allowed to dwell. It is then rinsed from the upholstery, leaving your piece clean and as close to new looking as possible. We may vary a few steps if special treatments are needed. As always, if you are unhappy with any of the results, let us know and we will do everything possible to make you happy.
