How are sofas cleaned?
Steam cleaning your sofa is acknowledged as the best system available.
This procedure when carried out will remove grease, grime, dust mites, and allergens.
If a fabric is steam cleanable this is our process.
1/ Vacuum using our crevice tool. This helps remove a lot of dander and grit.
2/ Applying alkaline chemicals dedicated to sofa fabrics. This is liberally applied, and left to dwell. Chemical will be gently agitated using a
drill brush or hand brush. Our solutions reacts with any dirt contained within fibres. We can add boosters or colour enhancing chemicals.
This would be determined at survey.
3/ Our process now starts.
Using a dedicated hand tool, steam cleaning at around 150 to 200 psi. We never exceed this level of pressure. One reason for this is all
fabrics are stitched and any higher pressure could damage any stitching.
A hand tool around four inches wide with a clear window is used. This allows us to see the extracting water change from a dark colour to
An operator is required to cover every inch of the sofa.. Arms, backs, sides, seats, headrest area, all edges, and both sides of the seat itself.
So a lot of detail is required.
Upon completion, we will wipe down all of the sofa with a white terry towel. This allows us to apply friction, speeding up the drying process,
but most importantly a very good indication that the results show no transfer of dirt. A normal drying time would be 3 hours. This will improve
with low humidity.
Dry cleaning upholstery
Some fabrics cannot be wet extracted. They may suffer damage by shrinkage or distortion.
A dry compound dedicated to sensitive fibres will be used.
We then agitate using a white towel. The friction generated lift the dirt.
This is not the best process for results however the safest for this type of fabric.
Here are some before and after pictures of work we have carried out.
As you can see the vast difference in colour.
People become used the slow change in colour until make
the decision to call for an appointment.
