Upholstered Furniture Pre-Treatment and Preparatory Work
Prior to steam cleaning, our crew will perform the preliminary / preparatory work. This commonly entails notation of heavily soiled areas and/or stains. If necessary, we may vacuum clean and pre-treat areas with spot removers. We may pre-spray targeted areas to better enable us to remove stains or soiling during our steam cleaning and extraction process.
Steam Cleaning and Extraction
During the steam cleaning process we use our robust, commercial grade, top-quality, vehicle mounted units to inject hot water and non-toxic, environmentally friendly, cleaning solution(s) into your upholstered furniture then extract the solution along with offending foreign contaminants (grime, allergens, soil, dirt, dust mites, debris, etc.) This process lifts the pollutants from the furniture, rather than abrasively brushing the foreign matter into the fabric. The extracted blend is returned to the vehicle’s holding tank, to be removed and properly disposed of by our company. Our goal is to restore your furniture it’s original cleanliness and luster, while maintaining it’s plush comfort.
Professionally applied fabric protection is available and recommended to better repel and resist many common carpet-ruining culprits. Fabric protection products, such as 3M Scotchguard (trademarked) and Dupont Teflon (trademarked,) bond / coat to your upholstered furniture’s fabric fibers to provide more durability and lasting resistance to staining and wear. The protection products are designed extend the longevity, and durability of your furniture, while enhancing it’s appearance.
Scotchgard surrounds carpet and upholstery fibers with an invisible barrier that protects against oil and water-based stains. When spills and accidents do occur, the customer has more time to get the spot up before it becomes a stain – helping ensure the carpet stays looking newer and fresher for longer. Plus, Scotchgard helps release stains more easily during professional cleanings.
3M Scotchgard is environmentally friendly. 3M no longer uses perfluorooctanol chemical (PFOS) compounds in the Scotchgard formula. So not only does your customer get excellent stain protection , but also you can confidently use a formula that has enhanced environmental, health, and safety benefits that pass regulatory reviews of the EPA and other environmental agencies around the world.
Dupont Teflon Advanced
DuPont Teflon Advanced is a fluorochemical carpet protector that helps to protect carpets from wet and dry soil. The repellency of this product is unrivaled in the industry. New and improved formula contains no PFOA! Now you can get the same great protection from the formula you trust, but leave an improved environmental footprint behind. DuPont Teflon Advanced is applied to cleaned carpets. Upon drying, it forms an invisible shield around each fiber that resists soils and stains. Fabrics treated with Teflon Advanced will keep fabrics looking newer longer. Safe for use on most upholstery, even those with built-in soil and stain resistance.
Fabric Deodorizers may be necessary to remove or neutralize unwanted odors. While other companies may be content temporarily masking the offending odor, our goal is to entirely remove the odor. We try to provide the right product(s) to effectively neutralize unwanted odors and smells embedded within the upholstery. This requires a complete application of the appropiate deodorizer directly upon the origination sources.
At your request, we can apply deodorizer with a neutral or more pleasant fragrance.
A Word of Caution
Furniture may remain slightly damp after cleanings but should completely dry in a matter of hours. Dry time can decreased with increased airflow. It is safe use furniture after their cleaning, but we recommend taking caution not to dirty the furniture as it is drying. Additionally, we advised caution not to slip. To avoid discoloration, protective pads should remain in place until the carpet, furniture, or upholstery is dry.
