THERE ARE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN HIRING AN UPHOLSTERY CLEANER.
First consider what type of soil is on your furniture. Grease, dirt, food & pet stains are treated differently. Knowing the source of the spots & soils will help your upholstery cleaner use the correct treatment with the best possible results.
Next know what type of fabric your upholstery is made of. There are several types of fabric used for furniture. there is polypropylene, cotton, polyester, micro-sued, rayon, olefin, velvet, nylon, linen to list a few. Knowing which upholstery fabric you have can mean the difference between success & disaster. You can find out what type of fabric is on your upholstery by lifting up the cushions, there will be a manufacturers tag with cleaning care instructions listed also stating what type of fabric it is.
A professional cleaning technician will inspect the furniture prior to cleaning to determine what type of fabric it is so the technician will be able know what cleaning solutions will be best to use for your upholstery. To keep drying time to a minimum, we use powerful air movers to speed up the drying process. On a nice sunny day opening the windows and turning on the ceiling fans is also a great & effective way to help the drying process.
When your ready to start shopping around for upholstery cleaning estimates, be prepared with the type of soil that is on your furniture, learn & know what type of fabric your upholstery is made of. Ask for an estimated drying time. Also ask how long it takes to clean. A seven foot sofa generally takes 30 to 40 min. a sectional sofa could take 45 min. to an hour. If the cleaning is done too fast, it's because the technician is not taking the time to do it right.
