Upholstery Cleaning – There’s a Right Way and a Wrong Way To Clean

Cleaning upholstery effectively requires extensive training and knowledge of the best cleaning solutions, techniques and equipment. Every carpet and upholstery cleaning company maintains their own practices for the process, but IICRC certified technicians, such as those employed by Tru-Clean, know how to thoroughly clean upholstery, which leads to greater customer satisfaction and the preservation of the client’s furniture for years to come.

Furniture is one of the worst parts of the home in terms of soil and spill collection, and while homeowners will usually vacuum their floors frequently, upholstery is often neglected. Abrasive soils wreak havoc on upholstery becoming deep-set over time causing upholstery to look dirty and dingy.

At Tru-Clean, our technicians begin the cleaning process by first vacuuming up any loose dry soils and other contaminates. This prevents more debris from being pushed into the fabric and causing damage as the cleaning process begins.

The second step is to spot treat any areas requiring special attention. A conditioning agent with the appropriate detergents is then applied which will emulsify the matted soils and spills causing them to release from the upholstery. Our certified technician will then gently agitate the fabric to ensure the cleaning solution reaches deep into the upholstery and is spread evenly. This can be done with a powered agitator or with a hand brush. After the cleaning solution has sufficient dwell time, the fabric is rinsed with a special wand attachment that runs a small jet of pH conditioned rinse over the upholstery and extracts it.

At this point, the furniture only needs a couple hours to dry and will be ready for use.

Who you choose to clean your upholstery matters. With proper care, furniture is designed to last and there’s no better way to protect your investment than allowing the professional-certified technicians at Tru-Clean the opportunity to show you our very best.
