Cleaning your favourite upholstery requires a professional. Upholstery chairs & lounges come is a variety of fabrics, and quality. Be it from natural or synthetic fibres, or a combination. It's not as simple as wetting them with a steam cleaning tool and waiting days for them to dry. Though thats what 90% of the self proclaimed upholstery cleaners in Melbourne do.
Carpets are of a completely different construction & density. They also contain very different types of soil, unless you walk on your chairs. The soiling found on chairs and upholstery in general is made up of body fats, oils and the occasional spillage of some kind.
Why do you insist on a pre-inspection?
- Simple put we need to know what we are dealing with
- What chemicals to use and the cleaning process most suitable
- To identify any pre-existing issues or potential problems that could occur if we proceed.
- To identify the level of soiling, types and its potential effect on the integrity of the fabric.
A quality clean takes time and attention to detail, it requires the appropriate selection of chemicals and cleaning technique needed to achieve a great result, be it a clean by hand or with an upholstery tool.
For example: Indian cotton requires a completely different approach to a polyester fabric. Regardless of quality the fabrics colour fastness can have devastating results. Over wetting can cause browning, quick re-soiling, mould growth and physical damage. Why do some fabrics turn grey when you wet them?
