Cleaning upholstery fabrics is generally a delicate process, most upholstery is designed to be softer than carpet so it takes a more delicate approach to clean. If the cleaning technique you use is too aggressive, you may find that the fabric gets ruined. Selecting the correct product to clean your upholstery with is also important, a lot of cleaning products available on the market are extremely harsh and can be damaging for most materials. We have a huge range of products specific to each material to ensure that each material is taken care of, we also have special upholstery attachments for our cleaning equipment to make sure the fibers aren't damaged from cleaning.
Having a stain removed is a very helpful service, but even better is being able to prevent one from happening in the first place. Most upholstery will have a protective coating on it as it comes from the factory, but over time this coating wears and deteriorates. When your fabric is cleaned properly with cleaning and conditioning products, this can help to restore the protective barrier over the fibers, preventing staining and keeping your upholstery looking clean and fresh for longer.
If you have a stain on your couch or chair, the easiest option is to go to your local store and buy one of the cleaners available, but you may find that these products can strip the color of the material or they feel different once it has dried. This is generally because most available cleaning products are harsh and too alkaline, which strips any protective coating from the fibers.
