Upholstery cleaning is separate from carpet cleaning in that it takes its own set of tools and cleaners to leave your furniture looking as good as new. But, like carpets, you may think you can get away with just vacuuming your furniture to keep your home clean. It’s time you start thinking of hiring a professional restoration company to give your furniture a fresh look. But when should you do this? Read on.
Like carpets, professional cleaning of your upholstery furniture is suggested once every year. This gives restoration companies a chance to survey your furniture, spot treat stains, clip snags, and deep steam clean the upholstery. Because restoration companies have the right tools and chemical solutions to really get your upholstery clean, you will be thankful for this service after seeing how much more clean your furniture is. Vacuuming can only do so much.
Stains happen all the time. For small ones that can be spot treated, you’re probably okay using an off-the-shelf solution. But for large stains that cover entire cushions or that can’t really be hidden, you should call a restoration company. Along with the standard steam solution, restoration companies have a stain-lifting solution that can get out the big stains and not leave any residue behind.
After a devastating event like a flood or fire, your furniture may have taken a beating. A restoration company can tell you if anything is worth saving and repairing. Snags, stains, and even mold can be treated with the right tools and expertise. After an accident, call a restoration company right away to start treating damages. The longer you wait, the less chance you have of salvaging things.
Upholstery starts to smell after a while. If you don’t clean it regularly, you’ll definitely notice the odor. Upholstery cleaning is the only way to get rid of the smell. Not even fabric sprays will truly get to the source of the odor. Sweat, dust, mold, or anything that digs into the fabric and sits cause odors. A thorough cleaning will get rid of the odor and may also bring some brightness back into the upholstery if it’s been a while since you cleaned it.
