Upholstery cleaning requires a deep cleaning when it’s first brought home. – When first brought home, new furniture: couches, chairs, ottomans, bedframes, or whatever new piece of furniture has been purchased, must be professionally cleaned. When leaving the warehouse, most furniture manufacturers allow the furniture to go through a process called out-gassing. This is a process by which the formaldehyde-based adhesives used to put the furniture pieces together, is allowed to “air out” or out-gas. The process actually can take up to 10 years for modern furniture and can result in rashes and other reactions when used. To avoid or alleviate this problem, upholstery steam cleaning may be the solution. Upholstery steam cleaning opens the fibers of the fabric and helps to remove some toxins that rest in the fabric.

Liquids should never be allowed to soak into upholstery. – No matter the type of fabric, spills should never be allowed to sit. This may seem like common sense, but even something as simple as water can soak deep into the cushions and, if not extracted or made to dry, can create a musty smell in the fabric. Upholstery steam cleaning is a great way to ensure this does not happen with any type of spill, from water to juice, or any other type of liquid. Steam cleaning is important because of the patented extraction procedure. By extracting the water, the fibers of the fabric are able to dry quickly and cleanly, leaving nothing but fresh smells behind. Further, when steam cleaning upholstery it is important to always apply a fabric protectant. This protectant will aid in keeping the liquids from soaking into the furniture and staining.

Every type of upholstery fabric has a different cleaning method. – Each type of upholstery fabric is different, and while the steam cleaning method will work for most types of fabric, it may not work for all. Crushed velvet, for example, can be steam cleaned, but it must be brushed afterwards and sometime the chemical treatment that “crushed” the velvet will not reassert. Every piece of furniture has a tag that describes the manufacturer recommended method of cleaning.
