Couches, chairs and other upholstered furniture usually receive a large amount of wear and tear. Mainly in busy work environments or in a home with children or pets. It’s nearly impossible to avoid getting dirt or stains on furniture, especially if they’re used on a daily basis. Odors and allergens can both be additional problems that can prove to be tough to tackle. Professional upholstery steam cleaning is the solution to successfully eliminating stains and odors from upholstery. Upholstery steam cleaners are used with specialized cleaning agents to remove odors, dirt and stains from a variety of fabrics and materials.
Upholstery Steam Cleaning
Upholstery steam cleaning is a more gentle alternative to the harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaners which could harm the delicate fabrics or materials on upholstered furniture. The upholstery steam cleaning machine is used on certain fabrics by a technician utilizing a combination of heated water, gentle detergents and pressure to loosen soil, dirt and odor-causing molecules so they can then be sucked away by a powerful vacuum. This leaves clean furniture without any toxic residues. Upholstery steam cleaning is far more effective for eliminating dirt, stains and odors than simply cleaning the furniture with detergents or chemicals.
Leather, Suede and Microfiber Cleaning
Professional upholstery cleaners provide cleaning services for a variety of fabrics and materials including upholstery made of suede, leather, and microfiber. These can be delicate and difficult to clean using traditional methods. Each unique material requires a different cleaning approach, so expert technicians are trained to use the appropriate methods, equipment and cleaning agents to wash specialty materials such as leather, suede and microfiber. These delicate materials require specialized detergents and techniques to keep them fresh and vibrant. Professional upholstery cleaners make use of the cleaning agents and equipment with utmost care to thoroughly clean and preserve the beauty of these pieces.
Upholstery can become a trap for common allergens such as dust, dander, pet hair, mold and other things people suffering from allergies may be susceptible to. Having upholstery professionally cleaned in the home or business can vastly improve the air quality for those suffering from allergies. Scrubbing and vacuuming can eliminate some of these allergens, but smaller particles stay lodged in the fabric of the upholstery. Upholstery steam cleaning can eliminate many of the allergens trapped in upholstered furniture by using specialized equipment to inject pressurized hot water and detergents into the fibers before extracting the water and particles with a powerful vacuum.
Upholstery can be made of a variety of fibers and materials, and a great majority of those fibers are absorbent. Odors in furniture are caused by molecules that become embedded in the fibers of the fabric and the backing underneath the fabric that the furniture is covered in. Upholstery can easily become saturated with odors from pets, spills, cooking, and even just from heavy use. These odors can be incredibly difficult to get rid of using simple cleaners. Upholstery steam cleaning, along with gentle cleaning agents, provide a solution allowing odor causing particles to be washed away along with dirt, dust, and soil.
