Upholstery Cleaning Services

Just what lurks within that sofa? What of the curtains, beds, and other soft furnishings? These areas usually get ignored when the rest of the house is getting cleaned. After all, the dirt and stains are much more obvious when they are on the kitchen countertops, bathroom surfaces, dull carpet and the hard surfaces. Left unchecked, the grime builds up on the upholstered units, which puts the health of the persons on the premises at risk. Take allergens for instance. These include everyday dust settling on this material, to the ubiquitous mite. Dust mite waste is actually of the leading causes of allergic reactions in households. This waste includes the faecal pellets they leave behind as they go feeding on skin flakes plus the dead mites themselves. Once they are inhaled and get onto the skin, they cause issues like sneezing, incessant coughing, skin irritation, trigger asthma attacks, and exacerbate conditions like eczema.  Bacteria and viruses too could have made a home in the soft furnishings. When there are persons who are ill in the household or business premises, it usually results in contamination spreading. This is because some of the pathogens that get coughed and sneezed all over, plus the commonly used surfaces which get contaminated- like doorknobs and light switches. While one remembers to disinfect these areas during the routine cleaning, what of the sofa itself, where no doubt the sick individual spent plenty of time resting on? These need to be addressed too. As such, a thorough sanitization is part and parcel of the cleaning process.

Benefits Of Expert Upholstery Cleaning Services


  • Get rid of stains


Are the coffee spills on your favourite sofa? Perhaps there was a party in your residence, and some wine or beer ended up on the upholstery. In entertainment joins like clubs, this is far more common, with the revellers leaving behind unsightly stains that needed to be attended to. Grease spots be it from food smudges or you’ve just come from changing your car’s engine oil, and some of the oil ends up being rubbed against the seat, food smudges, mustard and ketchup, that take-out that you brought home with you or the snacks your employees are enjoying in the break room- the resultant spills create messes that ruin the interior space. Do you have kids? The young ones are notorious for grabbing marker pens and making doodles all over the upholstery. Pets, on the other hand, can leave behind urine stains that set into the material. Inkblots, blood from nicks and cuts, that nail polish which poured onto the soft furnishings as you were preparing yourself- you want it to be got rid of. Our crew use highly effective solutions to dissolve these spots. They remove both water-based and oil-based stains that are ruining your upholstery, restoring the beauty to your sets.


  • Remove odours


When your pets come back from their outdoor escapades, they bring in dirt and debris. The soft upholstery material readily absorbs the smells in these elements. That organic residue within the furnishings, ranging from food smudges to the body husks and droppings of the insects and rodents that come out to feed on them, begins decomposing, adding to the musky smell. Then there are those pungent stenches that will render the sofa unusable- like those resulting from pet urine stains. The odours permeate through the interior space, affecting the comfort of the persons on the premises. This is resolved when the cleaning is carried out. First, the source of the odours is eliminated. The products and systems used reach deep into the material, extracting the gunk. Odour neutralisers then come into play, tackling those molecules floating about and fouling up the interior space. They are made inert, freshening up the affected rooms. Additionally, fragranced solutions can also be used, leaving behind anything from a peachy or orange scent to a flowery fragrance that accentuates the indoor decor. All this is done without putting the upholstery material at risk. Our crew employ products and processes that will be safe for your particular unit.
