upholstery-cleaningDo not trust your upholstered furniture to just anyone. Furniture is much more difficult than carpet to clean. There is no one method approach to upholstery cleaning. In order to clean it properly, your technician must first determine the fabric content, the construction of the piece and make a good analysis of the soil level. Then they can determine the best method out of the many different cleaning methods available. Unfortunately most cleaners fail to do these steps and the results can be disastrous at times. If you want it done right, give us a call. Cross Country is the name you can trust in Vestavia Hills upholstery cleaning.

How Do We Clean Upholstery?

First, our technicians will examine the piece to be cleaned. They are looking for a few different things. First, they want to determine what the fabric is made of whether it be cotton, silk, rayon, a synthetic fiber or a combination of any of these. Next, they want to look at how it is made. Some pieces, for example will have a thread that only appears on the surface in a few locations, but runs the length of the material underneath. This could be a problem if that color bleeds. Finally, they look at how soiled the piece is and what kind of soil it is. After taking all of these things into consideration, a proper cleaning method can be chosen.

Once the method is chosen, the piece is pre-vacuumed, a pre-spray is applied and it is extracted. This is the typical case, but some pieces might take additional or different steps. In any case, when we are done, we invite you to look the piece over and if you have any concerns, they will be addressed.
