Upholstery Cleaning Guide - How to Avoid Common Mistakes

Author:Nathan Nwachukwu

Most people hesitate to clean their upholstery by themselves in fear that a bad job will only leave their furniture improperly dried or have its fabric ruined. If you are one of these people, you have two options – one is to hire professional cleaners, the other is to learn how to properly clean your furniture. But you need not worry, whichever you decide to do: most professional cleaners are very competent with their job; and you might find that with the proper upholstery cleaning guide, sprucing up your furniture may not be very difficult.

If you have been used to the old way of cleaning up your furniture upholstery, you might have noticed how long it takes for drying to take place. Water soaks deep into the material and even if the surface has dried up, the inner layers are still damp. Prolonged dampness can do great damage to your furniture. It can give off bad odor, lose the quality of your fabric, or worse, foster the growth of molds and molds.

People who are unfamiliar in cleaning upholstery probably know little about the damage that harsh cleaning agents can do to the material. But aside from the damaging effects of these chemicals to the upholstery and furniture, they can also harm your health. If you don\'t follow a proper upholstery cleaning guide, residues of strong cleaning agents may remain in your furniture and cause irritation, rash, and other health issues.

If the fabric covering your furniture is stained on a small portion, there is no need to for a thorough cleaning, as spot cleaners can do the trick here. Many dry cleaning solutions can be bought at grocery shops. To remove stains in you upholstery, you will only need a clean cloth, some mild detergent and warm water.

To ensure the safety of your materials, try to use only mild chemicals and take precautions when applying it. Clean one portion at a time of your furniture to minimize any possible damage and cover all nearby items (or the parts of your furniture that you\'re cleaning) when applying these cleaning agents. Before you attempt to do the cleaning you have to ask yourself if you can actually do it because you would only be wasting your time and effort and the cleaning materials if you end up with a sloppy furniture.

The more convenient option to having clean furniture is to simply hire professional cleaners. Many cleaning companies can provide upholstery cleaning services as well as carpet, drapery and linen cleaning. However, beware of scammers who claim to be skilled cleaners. Make sure to seek only cleaners from a reputable company. Have second thoughts about those who tell you they are freelance, door-to-door professionals offering cleanup service.

Finding a cleaning service company near your area can easily be done through a quick search in the internet. Most of them can offer quick or thorough cleanups, and many cleaners will even give you an upholstery cleaning guide so that you can better do simple cleanups by yourself.

Winn’s Pro- I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

I manage 16 luxury homes in Aspen, Colorado and would not go anywhere else for my carpet cleaning needs. On top of requiring very discreet and trustworthy services, our homeowners have specialty rugs and carpets which require unique care. Over the long relationship Ute Place has shared with Marty, there is not a problem Winn’s pro has not been able to handle for us. When he says, “call me any time”, he means it! Marty is always willing to help in emergency situations late in the day or over weekends and holidays and arrives on your doorstep quickly and with a smile. My homeowners are continually impressed with the “magic” Marty works on their carpets and rugs, always leaving them looking like new. I would, without hesitation, recommend Marty’s professional services to any client looking for a superior, friendly and flawless cleaning service.

Thank you Winn’s Pro!

Testimonial from Mason Morse Real Estate:This is to let you know that Marty Winn did an excellent job of cleaning our carpets. His service is unbeatable and the quality of his work is definitely first class.We had stains on our carpet that no other carpet cleaner was able to get out. The stains were set in and had been there for quite some time. Marty came to our office and said he did not care if we gave him the job or not; but he wanted to try and get the stains out. He not only got them out, his prices were excellent also.Marty came and cleaned our carpets and has followed up to make sure the stains have not returned.I highly recommend and trust Marty and Winn’s Pro Carpet Cleaning. He definitely is a professional and takes pride in his work.Thank you for all that you have done!Sincerely,Karen Scarberry/Office ManagerMason Morse Real Estate0290 Hwy 133Carbondale, CO. 81623
