Upholstery Cleaning & Protection


Upholstery Cleaning Process

Upholstery Cleaning Process


1. Pre-Inspection
Our technician will perform special tests to determine the content of your fabric. The content will determine what type of cleaning solutions and techniques will be used. We will also point out any potential permanent stains or areas of concern.

2. Area Preparation
We will prepare the area where the upholstery will be cleaned to protect your surrounding furnishings.

3. Pre-Vacuum
All textiles should be vacuumed thoroughly before cleaning. This step will remove dry soils and any loose particles from cracks and crevices.

4. Pre-Treat
Depending on your fabric, a special solution designed for your fabric type and the soiling condition will be applied to “emulsify” the soil.

5. Pre-Spot
Any potentially difficult spots will be pre-treated with special solutions to increase chances of removal.

6. Pre-Groom
The fabric will then be gently groomed using soft upholstery brushes to loosen the soil.

7. Soil Extraction and Rinse
The soil is then extracted from the fabric with a gentle, controlled rinse.

8. Neutralize
The fabric is then pH balanced to maintain it’s soft, fresh feel.

9. Post Spot
Any remaining spots will be treated with special stain removal products.

10. Post Groom

The upholstery will then be prepared for drying with a gentle combing of the fabric

11. Apply Fabric Protection (optional service)
Making sure that you have sufficient amount of fabric protector on your fabric will help keep the soil from bonding to the fabric.

12. Speed Dry
High velocity air movers will be placed on the upholstery to speed dry the fabric.

13. Post Cleaning Inspection
Our technician will review the cleaning results with you to insure that your expectations have been met or exceeded.
