upholstery-cleaningWe offer a number of other services in Hueytown in addition to carpet cleaning. One of those is upholstery cleaning and we consider ourselves experts at it. Unlike other cleaning services, we take the time to do the job right. This means analyzing the piece of furniture before we clean it to choose the best method. Every piece of upholstery is different and must be treated differently. We look at the fabric content, construction and the level of soiling and then choose the appropriate cleaning method.

Upholstery Cleaning Process

The first step of the process is a detailed inspection of the upholstery. First, we will take a sample of the material and test it to determine the fabric content. Every material behaves differently, so we must know exactly what is in the fabric in order to clean it safely. Next, we look at the construction of the fabric. Things like type of weave and backing type can affect how it is cleaned. Finally, we look at the level and type of soiling. After considering all of these things, we can choose the proper cleaning method from our arsenal of methods.

Once the proper method is chosen, we begin the process by dry vacuuming the piece. Dry soil is easier to remove than wet soil, so this is an important step. In addition, upholstery, especially couches, tend to get all sorts of things caught in the crevices. Keys, coins, peanut butter sandwiches, we have seen it all. Next, the appropriate cleaning agent is applied to the piece and allowed to dwell. Then it is extracted using a low moisture cleaning tool. Along the way, we treat problem areas and spots. When we are finished extracting the piece, we put the cushions in a proper drying position and invite you to have a look at the furniture. If you have any concerns, we will be happy to address them.
