Upholstery Cleaning Questions

WHY SHOULD I HAVE MY FURNITURE PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED?

Gritty greasy dirt can’t  all be removed by vacuuming or brushing. At least once a year furniture should be deep cleaned,

NOT superficially by hand or machine scrubbing methods that don’t remove embedded dirt and that may actually harm the fabric

NOT with  do- it –yourself gadgets that leave furniture blotchy and smeared and often soaking wet.

It should be cleaned safely and effectively with the Dry Foam system by Deluxe Upholstery Cleaning technicians

WHY SHOULD I  USE DRY FOAM CLEANING?

Because the process uses so little water the risk of rusting, water stains, shrinkage and dye run are almost non- existent.

We achieve stunning results on all popular upholstery fabrics

The Dry Foam  system that we use  eliminates over wetting dangers NO liquid penetrates the  internal  padding, so the furniture dries rapidly and is usually ready to use the same day.

HOW WILL YOU CLEAN MY FURNITURE?

We have a four step process

STEP 1 The furniture is vacuumed to remove dirt and dust and loose soil
STEP 2  Low moisture Dry Foam is applied and specially designed counter-rotating brushes in our hand held power head gently scrub and agitate the dirt and grime loose

STEP 3 Our built in vacuum immediately extracts the dirt embedded foam and collects it in a recovery tank

STEP 4  We lightly brush the surface of the fabric when almost dry to restore nap and fabric pile if needed.

WHAT IS DRY FOAM cleaning?

Fluffy dry foam is generated by our special machines and brushed into the soiled fabric , the foam is only 10% moisture so we call it a LOW MOISTURE process. The delicate thorough action of the cleaning system suspends emulsified soil and the dirt and foam are removed by powerful vacuum action immediately.

The system is incredibly fast and effective – the under padding of the furniture is not soaked so the furniture dries rapidly and is often ready for use the same day

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

It depends on what items of furniture you are having cleaned….we have a minimum charge of £60 per appointment and that is the cost of one 6ft sofa with cushions or two large armchairs and an office chair. Many of our clients like to have all their upholstery cleaned by us every year but a minimum appointment will take us about 2hours depending on the degree of soiling.

CAN YOU PROTECT MY UPHOLSTERY AFTER YOU CLEAN IT?

Yes we can, we know our clients want to keep their furniture the way it looks after cleaning—fresh and beautiful, but that’s not always easy with entertaining ,pets and children or a busy lifestyle.

Applying  fabric  protector makes real sense and we offer two different kinds  – regular for easy use and super  for the pieces furniture that are subject to heavy use. We have it ..just ask and get some peace of mind !

If you have a brand –new  sofa we strongly recommend applying fabric  protector and stain repellant  as soon as you bring it home – especially if it is light colored. Our super protector is much  better than the  one that the manufacturer provides… we know!
