You wouldn’t dream of only vacuuming your carpet only once a year, and yet most people give little thought to their expensive sofa or loveseat, dining room chair cushions or office ensemble. These pieces are made up of many different fibers, each with its own set of characteristics. We are pros at matching the proper method, cleaning agent and water temperature to specific fabrics and fibers for the best furniture cleaning service available.
What You Can’t See, Can Hurt
Even if your upholstery doesn’t show stains, dust has been compressed into the fibers. Imagine what your table would look like if you only dusted it once a year. The same thing happens to upholstered furniture … dust accumulates over time and when people sit on it, the oils from their skin press it deep into the fabric, making it nearly impossible to remove just by vacuuming with an upholstery attachment.
Not only does this grit cut into the fibers, which causes wear on the upholstery, it is laden with bacteria from pet hair, pollen, food crumbs, and dust mites with their germy fecal pellets. As all this material decomposes, it gives off a foul-smelling odor.
At In-Depth Cleaning Professionals, we are experts at upholstery and furniture cleaning. We use a Butler truck-mounted steam-extraction system with special upholstery tools. Our cleaning products are specifically designed for the different types of fabrics used in upholstered furniture and other applications. We are experienced at adjusting the chemicals and water temperature to match each material. All practices are based on the guidelines developed by IICRC – the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, which sets the standards for our industry.
Every time we do your upholstery and furniture cleaning, we also apply Scotchgard, a stain and water repellant by 3M. This protection makes it more difficult for spills, spots, and stains to penetrate to the interior of the fibers, where they cause permanent color change. Scotchgarding lasts up to a year, so you should have your upholstery cleaned annually. We recommend scheduling an upholstery and furniture cleaning appointment for the same time you have your carpet cleaned. You can also drop off furniture or cushions to be cleaned at our warehouse any time it’s convenient for you.
