Upholstery cleaning is by its very nature a more exact science than carpet cleaning. Not only are the fabrics more delicate; more subject to damage or destruction by inappropriate methods, but there are further considerations which do not apply in carpet cleaning.
In the case of soft furnishings and fabrics there is the human body contact which can lead to the contamination of the fabric by perspiration, greasy deposits from hair and hand cosmetics, body warmth and compression.There are also hidden dangers associated with what lies beneath the fabric if not cleaned correctly.
In modern furniture foam padding can be dissolved if the incorrect chemicals are used; in older furniture, the use of shoddy multi coloured wool threads as padding or hessian covering ancient horsehair raises the spectre of cellulosic browning or wicking of unsuspected stains to the surface if too much water is used.
Like with our carpet cleaning, only our safe cleaning solutions are used when cleaning fabrics and soft furnishings. We also use the latest and most advanced hand tool on the market today! We use the Sapphire Pro Upholstery Tool to maximise cleaning and minimise wetting. Unlike the old metal hand tools some other cleaning companies still use, the Sapphire Pro gives amazingly fast drying times with virtually no risk of over wetting. Like our carpet cleaning a full initial survey is carried out, and if you wish to proceed all your furnishings are vacuumed and pre tested for colour fastness before any cleaning is carried out.
