What To Expect From An Upholstery Cleaning Service

An upholstery cleaning service can give run-down and tired furniture new life, but it is important that the consumer know what to look for in a company, the questions to ask, and what to expect during the process. There are different styles and sizes of furniture, and a good provider will recognize the importance of handling each piece individually rather than as a whole. A cherished couch purchased last year should receive the same level of excellence as a prized family heirloom.

There are three basic steps to the process: prepping, cleaning, and finishing. Each company may have different ways of completing each step, but it ultimately boils down to those three things. The consumer wants to transform and give new life to dirty, frazzled furnishings, and a professional is invaluable when it comes to maintaining and restoring furniture as close as possible to its original state.

Can a carpet cleaning expert can complete the tasks? Or is it better to find a specialist? While a carpet expert may suffice, it is a good idea to make sure the company is also an expert at providing upholstery cleaning service. Many companies are capable of providing both for their customers.
So what makes a company an expert?

The answer is simple: experience and education. The experienced and educated professional will know how to maintain the integrity of the fabric while completing the project. The best professionals are certified by the IICRC, which sets the standards when it comes to this type of work.

A carpet and upholstery cleaning service is capable of restoring the life to the fabrics in the home, and will specialize in more than just ridding the furniture of everyday grime and debris. In fact, many consumers will turn to this type of company when there has been fire, smoke, or water damage to household or office furniture. Even if they are only able to salvage a few pieces, it is more cost effective than having to make all new purchases.  

These days environmental awareness is just as important as maintaining a beautiful home. A reliable and reputable carpet and upholstery cleaning service will also be environmentally conscious of the chemicals used in the process. Not only should the chemicals be safe for disposal, but the chemicals should be non-toxic to the residents—both the family and their pets. A newborn baby should be able to crawl or sleep on the surface once completed and dry. Thorough extraction of the chemicals from the furniture is mandatory to guarantee safety to the consumer.

A high-quality company will be licensed and insured and will provide good service in a reasonable time frame. There are emergencies where it is important to get the project started without delay, such as after a broken pipe or a fire. The sooner the expert can get started the easier it is to complete the project successfully. Choosing a superior upholstery cleaning service does not have to cost a lot. A good company will charge a reasonable price that provides the customer with good value.
