How long has it been since you’ve had that favorite sofa, love-seat or chair cleaned? If you’re like most folks, you & your family spend a great deal of time using your furniture’s upholstery, but very little time cleaning it (if any). It’s recommended you clean your upholstery every 1 – 3 months depending on how much dust & dirt build-up from daily use.
Particularly watch the Arm & Headrest areas of your furniture where oils from hair & skin build-up. For light upholstery cleaning, your vacuum and most commercial cleaners & shampoos should be fine—check the manufacturer’s upholstered furniture or fabric label or tag to be sure.
Be careful about applying too much water to prevent damage or unnecessary wear to your fabric. Minimizing drying time also reduces the chance of bacteria growth occurring. Use an electric fan or open a window to increase drying time where appropriate.
The 7 Principles of Upholstery Cleaning
- Fabric Inspection
A simple test which involves taking a tiny swatch of the fabric reveals the fiber content and helps tailor the cleaning process.
- Dye Testing
A small amount of upholstery cleaner is applied to an inconspicuous area of the fabric to test for dye stability.
- Dry Soil Removal
When cleaning any textile, the first step is always to remove as much dry soil as possible. Not only does this improve the cleaning process, but it also will help prevent damage and scratches to your fine fabrics from dry soil particles.
- Soil Suspension
A preconditioning agent is used on most fabrics to “suspend” the soil for more effective extraction.
- Soil Removal (Extraction)
A water or solvent based solution is used to whisk away the suspended soils.
- Pile Setting/Grooming
Textiles that have a “pile”, such as chenille or velvet, are groomed with a special upholstery grooming brush to arrange the individual fibers into a uniform position.
High velocity air movers are used to promote faster drying. This will help the fabric dry quicker and not leave a chance for mold and bacteria to grow in your fine fabrics.

Pet urine removal
Pet urine is the most embarrassing and disturbing kind of stain that you can have on your carpet. It is important that the pet urine is removed when it has been noticed. This is because if left to stay it is going to cause odors that can make the house inhabitable. It will also cause the pet to come back and urinate at the same spot because they use urine as a way to mark territory.
You do not want your pet to be urinating on your carpet and make your house unpleasant to be in. We have the best products for pet urine removal. Our products react at an enzyme level to break the crystals that form on the carpet due to the urine. The urine is then easily eliminated from the fibers of the carpet.
Afterwards we use the best deodorizers that sink into the carpet fibers and neutralize the particles that could cause odor on your carpet leaving it fresh and clean.
Deep carpet cleaningNormal vacuuming does not get deep into the fibers of the carpet. Our process uses hot water and cleaners that sink deep into the carpet fibers and soften all the dirt and other filth that is hidden down there. Then we have powerful vacuum cleaners that will extract the now loose particles and debris together with the washing solution and water. This kind of cleaning ensures that the carpet regains its lost glory. The fibers are raised up straight and are left soft and smooth to the feel. Deep cleaning is also important in removing allergens.
A clean carpet to the eyes may have a completely different situation. Allergens trapped and collected on the carpet sink down to the bottom of the carpet fibers where they are not easily reached by the vacuum cleaners used at home. Dead skin cells, dust mite droppings, pollen grains and other allergens are easy to remove with a deep cleaning process.
It is estimated that an average household may have up to 2 million dust mites. You can therefore imagine the amount of droppings you can have in your house at any one time from these dust mites. That is why it is recommended that you have regular deep cleaning of your carpet.
