Furniture & Upholstery Cleaning
To keep your furniture clean, it’s necessary to conduct routine maintenance, including periodic cleaning by a certified technician every 12 to 24 months. Furniture and fabric manufacturers recommend that consumers not wait until severe soiling occurs before cleaning because the greater the soiling, the less the likelihood of restoring the fabric’s original color, appearance, and texture, and the greater adverse effect on indoor environmental quality. Upholstered furniture, in many cases, can contain a wider variety of soil than can be found in carpeting. Many of the contaminants in furniture not only come from simple soil, but come directly from contact with human skin and animal fur. These soils contain high amounts of bodily secretions such as perspiration, dander, as well as skin and hair/fur oils. Therefore, keeping your furniture clean is very important to maintaining a healthy home environment. Since furniture can be made of more delicate fabrics, such as cotton, silk, and rayon, and can contain sensitive dyes, furniture cleaning requires more advanced education to ensure quality results.
Protecting Your Furniture
Over time, the furniture protector which comes with most new furniture wears off. In order to preserve the color, beauty and life of your furniture it is important reapply the protection after a few months. A re-application of DuPont Teflon protection after your regular cleanings will help increase the time between cleanings and keep your furniture cleaner, longer. After protecting your furniture with DuPont Teflon, we recommend our enzyme-based deodorizer. This non-toxic and gentle deodorizer is designed to attack odor-causing particles in your fabric and keep your furniture smelling clean and fresh.
