Each cleaning begins with a detailed inspection of the upholstery for fiber damage and/or staining which may cause difficulty with the cleaning. These issues will be addressed before the cleaning begins so as not to cause issues later. After the inspection, the upholstery is then pre-treated based upon the fibers and the condition of the fabric and allowed to dwell.
In the case of leather, extraction is not an option, therefore, a cleaning and conditioning product will be used to remove soiling and make the leather more supple to the touch. For fabrics, either steam or dry extraction will be used to remove soiling and acheive the best cleaning results.
After cleaning cottons and sometimes other fabrics as well, an post cleaning treatment must be used to prevent the upholstery from browning due to extended contact with moisture, ensuring that the surface will appear as bright and clean as can be. If you have children, pets, or you just like to eat and drink while sitting on the furniture, you may also consider a post cleaning protectant product to keep your upholstery looking like new, even when accidents happen.
