High Quality Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning In Coleshill
If you have a Sofa, settee or three piece suite that is looking tired or dirty, then we can help you.
We need to see it first, however. Most fabric covers are much less durable than carpet fibres so are more easily damaged. If someone does not have the experience to deal with different coverings, they can wreck them (and in nearly every case, it’s irreversible).
Over the years we have found that you cannot trust things like labels on a suite.
This is why we always insist on a visit to inspect upholstery. It is impossible to check things during a telephone call. Some fabrics cannot be wet cleaned, or are very susceptible to damage from certain cleaning fluids. Strong chemicals can make dyes run or merge into one another.
How long does it take?
I cannot speak for anyone else but for us it takes about FOUR man hours to clean an average three piece suite PROPERLY from start to finish.
Some will rush and do it in significantly less time but sorry, we will not compromise on doing a careful job.
Let’s face it. You don’t want us to wreck your furniture and we don’t want you to sue us. That’s a fair trade off, right?
What type of fabric is it?
Is it safe to clean without damage (the answer may be no)?
What will we need to do?
What do we need to be careful of in the room (are there any fragile things that need to be removed?
Dry Vacuum & Pre-Spray
First of all we put protective sheets down and cover things like televisions or french polished surfaces. Don’t get the wrong idea, we are not spraying all over the room but it’s just common sense to cover up vulnerable furniture.
We then DRY vacuum the furniture to remove as much dirt as possible. You would be amazed how much dust gets into the cushions and frame.
We then apply a fine mist of mild cleaning solution to soften the dirt before dislodging it with a soft brush or mitten. this is ready to be rinsed away.
Rinse / Extraction
Now it’s time to switch the machine on and rinse the dirt out.
In most cases we will use plain water. Sometimes however, we have to use a very mild acidic solution as this helps to stabilise the dyes in fragile fibres and fabrics.
The moment we finish rinsing a frame or cushin, we place it in front of the big airmover (dryer). It’s also on dropsheets, not your carpet. This “speed drying” vastly reduces the drying time.
