1.How frequently do manufacturers recommend professional cleaning?
Manufacturers advise having upholstered furniture cleaned professionally every 12-24 months, subject to use.
2.The label on my upholstery recommends a dry cleaning process. Are you able to clean it?
Yes, we can. We test your fabric to determine which cleaning technique will be the safest and most effective. Although the label recommends a certain cleaning method, it may not necessarily be the most effective method for removing dirt.
3.How long will it take for my upholstery to dry?
This varies depending on the specific type of fabric, but will take no longer than 24 hours. To speed up the drying process, we recommend turning up the heating.
4.How do you clean the upholstery?
We use a powerful hot water extraction cleaning process whenever possible: this cleaning technique provides the deepest cleaning method possible. Certain fabrics require a more delicate cleaning method, in which case we will assist you in making a decision that is right for your furniture’s needs.
5.Just how effective is steam cleaning?
The primary reason steam cleaning is so effective is because on contact the high-temperature acts to discrete the grime and dirt from the fibres of the fabric. With steam cleaning, the heat transfers from the steam to the surface, meaning you get a thorough deep clean to the core of every fibre. Steam combats bacteria’s and destroys germs and bugs. The hot water steam is more effective on grease and stains than cleaning at low temperatures. Furthermore, those with allergies or asthma can benefit from steam cleaning, as dust mites, fleas and many other nasties are killed when steam is used to clean.
