Maintenance & Care Guide
Nearly 80% of soils on upholstered furniture are insoluble, which means that they do not dissolve in water or solvents. The reason that fabrics, especially pile fabrics, have so much dry particulate soil is because furniture fabric is rarely vacuumed. The best way to remove insoluble soils is by thoroughly vacuuming the furniture. Keeping your fabric clean will lengthen the life of your upholstered furniture.
Normal cleaning would encompass periodic cleaning (12-24 months) done by a trained technician using methods outlined in the IICRC S-300 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Upholstery Cleaning. In between professional cleanings, we recommend vacuuming (every 2-6 weeks) of all upholstered surfaces to prevent dust and damaging soil build-up.
An ink line across the surface of fabric from a pen or marker will most likely be able to be 100% removed. Ink drip spots and larger quantity stains that have had a chance penetrate into the fabric are less likely to be completely removed.
It is very common for carpet cleaners to refuse fabric cleaning due to a lack of training and experience. The risks of using an inexperienced cleaning company for your upholstery fabrics are possible browning, bleeding, shrinkage, and color loss. Many carpet technicians love empty houses and large commercial jobs that they can simply hire a low wage employee to perform easy and simple tasks. Furniture fabric cleaning is very detailed work and a large amount of patience is needed. Upholstery cleaning is very tedious and fatiguing. Endurance in the technician’s shoulders and back muscles will ensure that the cleaning process maintains its quality from beginning to end. Being able to identify fabrics and cleaning methods require much more knowledge and expertise. Experience in and understanding the different types of soils common on furniture with delicate natural fibers and woven fabrics ensures the proper cleaning techniques for removal of a wide range of stains. We understand the value and importance of each customer and we take pride in our honesty, integrity, and punctuality. Upholstery cleaning services in the Greater Houston Area.
