upholstery-cleaningUpholstery cleaning is a bit different than carpet cleaning. With carpet cleaning, you can typically use the same method and techniques to clean just about every carpet. With upholstery, there are far more variables and there are many different cleaning methods. To choose the proper method, we must first look at the content, construction and level of soiling of a piece. Only after taking all of these variables into account can we choose the safest and most effective way to clean.

Upholstery Cleaning Process

First, we examine the piece to be cleaned and determine the best method to use. Next, we vacuum the piece to remove dry soil and all of that debris that always ends up in the crevices. We find on average 78 cents in a couch but don’t worry, we will return it to you. Next, the proper pre-treatment is applied and given dwell time so that it can break down soil. Finally, we rinse the upholstery and spot clean difficult areas as we go. The last step is to place the cushions in a proper teepee fashion for drying.

Types of Upholstery

We clean all types of upholstery in Northport. Wonder how we define each piece? Here are the basics.

  • Love Seats
    Love seats are defined as a piece of furniture no more than 6 feet in length.
  • Couch
    We define a couch as a piece of furniture between 6 and 8 feet long.
  • Sectionals
    When a couch gets over 8 feet, we start considering it a sectional.
  • Recliner/Wingback Chairs
    These are priced the same as they are overall, about the same size.
  • Dining Chair
    A dining chair is one that has only an upholstered seat and possibly back.
  • Kitchen Chair
    A kitchen chair has upholstered arms and possibly legs in addition to an upholstered seat and back.
  • Misc
    If it has fabric, we can clean it. Call us with your special requests.
