upholstery-cleaningIf you need your upholstery cleaned, you should know that upholstery cleaning is not like carpet cleaning. There is no one method that can be used for all upholstery. In order to clean it properly, your cleaning tech must first analyze the piece to be cleaned and determine the construction of the piece, the content of the piece and the level of soiling. Only then can they choose the best cleaning method. Unfortunately, most Tuscaloosa carpet cleaners use one method for every piece. This is a recipe for disaster and leads to a lot of ruined upholstery. If you want your upholstery cleaned correctly, the first time, give us a call.

What is included in our upholstery cleaning.

  • Step One
    First, we take a detailed look at the piece to be cleaned. We look at how it is constructed and what it is made from. We also look for potential pitfalls like grease pen marks on the back of the upholstery made during assembly and other oddities. Only then can the best method for cleaning be chosen.
  • Step Two
    Next, we apply the proper preconditioning agent, based on the prior analysis. We then give it time to dwell.
  • Step Three
    We then rinse your upholstery to remove the pre-spray and soil from the piece.
  • Step Four
    If any spots made it through the cleaning process, they are now treated before we ask you to examine the furniture.
  • Step Five
    We ask that you examine the upholstery to make sure that it meets your standards.
