Upholstery Cleaning Facts

When you are looking at getting upholstery cleaned do your research. Like carpets if done incorrectly your furniture will look and smell musty and feel hard. First, there is the hot water extraction method, which, in layman’s terms, is more commonly known as steam cleaning. (This is the number one method recommended by most manufactures of furniture.)  Another wet method is through shampoo. This is only used in a case of very badly damaged upholstery and is based on a similar method to the upholstery steam cleaning. It is way more aggressive, and only used in very specific cases. There are foamy substances in the shampoo which allows a deeper cleansing. Often, the hot water extraction method is used after this.

Dry cleaning is considered the safest cleaning method; however, solvents may damage adhesives or latex back coatings. The good news is that dry cleaning solvents dissolve oily soils and eliminate the fear of bleeding, shrinking, and browning. The bad news is that it will have little effect on heavily soiled fabric or fabric with water-based stains. (In other words, not recommended.) Call us today to learn more!
