Most upholstery fabrics are wet cleanable but not all, so it is important to carry out a survey to decide how to proceed. We thoroughly vacuum all the pieces to be cleaned then we can attempt stain removal. Full cleaning depends on how dirty the items are and the condition of the fabric itself.
Wool is a protein fibre formed in the skin of sheep and is a totally natural, renewable source with sheep making a new fleece every year. At the end of its useful life, wool can be returned to the soil to breakdown quickly. Wool has always been appreciated for its unique properties and science has yet to produce a fibre which matches it.
Successfully removing stains depends upon the cleaner’s ability to identify the fibre and the construction of the carpet or upholstery fabric. It is then essential to choose the right product and apply it correctly. Without this knowledge, stain removal is hit-and-miss and could cause permanent damage to the fibres or set the stain in.
The most frequent comment on finishing a job is for the homeowner to tell us that their house smells lovely. As far as our customers are concerned, their carpets or upholstery must smell clean as well as look clean but cleaning alone will not eliminate odours. That is why as professional cleaners, deodorising is important to us.
A common question that I'm asked "Is it worth applying protector treatments to your carpet and sofa?" Well the answer is yes. They work by coating the surface of the carpet or upholstery fabric with a dirt repellent coating which makes it harder for dirt to stick to or spills to be absorbed by the fibres.
