A Brighter Home – Our upholstery cleaning process. Why trust us as your professional upholstery cleaning company? There are lots of upholstery cleaning companies who will all tell you they are the best upholstery cleaner – so which professional upholstery cleaning system should you trust in your home or office?
We have over 20 years’ experience of sofa cleaning and are familiar with all current methods. The equipment, processes and cleaning solutions we use are the result of this experience and know how. The following is our ‘quick guide’ to furniture cleaning and the various processes – together with our handy comparison chart you can be sure you’ve made the right choice using A Brighter Home as your furniture cleaners.
There are only a handful of distinct methods of fabric upholstery cleaning:
- Hot water extraction (HWE), often misnamed as ‘steam cleaning’ or ‘upholstery steam cleaner’
- Dry cleaning
- Upholstery shampoo cleaning
Most upholstery cleaners choose to use the hot water extraction or steam clean method, although the term is actually incorrect as steam cleaning can damage many fabrics!
For professional upholstery cleaning, much as with cleaning clothes, we believe it is really only possible to get good results by emulsifying soiling into a liquid and then removing by rinsing (extracting).
For this reason we use a Hot Water Extraction method but with very advanced cleaning solutions and equipment that typical operators don’t invest the money or the time in.
Our 8 Step Cleaning Process to the Cleanest, Healthiest Sofas and Upholstery
Before we bring any equipment into your property we will carry out a pre-inspection with you. This enables you to point out any areas of particular concern you may have and for us to advise accordingly
High Filtration Commercial Vacuum
If necessary, we vacuum with a high filtration commercial vacuum system specifically designed for deep down soil removal
Apply Eco-Friendly Non Toxic Pre-Spray
Next we will apply a pre-spray fabric cleaner which is then hand brushed in to the upholstery. This begins to lift oily dirt and pollutants from your fibres and suspends them in solution ready to be extracted using our state of the art high pressure upholstery cleaning machine
High Pressure Extraction
Our patented extractor sprays high pressure water based solution into the fibres to quickly and efficiently rinse away soiling. Through the use of advanced design of our moisture controlled cleaning extraction technology, we recover up to 92% of the solution, meaning not only a thorough clean but exceptional drying times.
Further Stain Removal
Any remaining stains that have not been fully removed are now treated by hand to ensure everything possible has been done to remove staining.
We now gently also ‘buff’ your upholstery with soft highly absorbent cotton towels
Use Rapid Dry Air Mover
Where possible we will also use a powerful rapid dry fan system to begin to dry your upholstery
