Residential Upholstery Cleaning
Residential Upholstery can be unique and require special care when it comes to proper cleaning. Blue Sky Carpet Care's technicians are all certified by the IICRC in Upholstery and Fabric cleaning. This means each technician has been trained on how to effectively identify and employ the correct cleaning strategy for every fabric type. We carefully inspect the construction of the upholstery and pay special attention to any areas of concern to assure the proper cleaning techniques are employed. The result is a more thorough and detailed cleaning for your delicate upholstery.
Our 9 Step Residential Upholstery Cleaning Process
Step 1: Inspection: The furniture is inspected for fabric type, construction and any areas of concern.
Step 2: Set-up: Before the cleaning process is started, every precaution is taken to protect your home. Walk-off mats and moving blankets are used to protect hard surfaces, corner guards used for walls and a door barrier is used to seal around the door to maintain inside temperature.
Step 3: Set-Up: Pre-cautionary measures are taken to protect your home. Moving blankets are placed on hardwood and tile areas that are not being cleaned. Corner guards are placed around corners to protect walls and a door barrier is installed to secure openings around the door.
Step 4: Pre-Vacuum: The furniture is thoroughly vacuumed before cleaning.
Step 5: Pre-Conditioner: A pre-conditioned fine fabric spray is applied to the furniture.
Step 6: Agitation: The pre-conditioner is agitated into the fabric with a horse hair brush or bonnet to break down and suspend soils.
Step 7: Rinse: The pre-conditioner is extracted using a PH balanced rinse.
Step 8: Grooming: The fabric is groomed using a furniture grooming brush.
Step 9: Protection (optional): 3M Scotchgard is applied to the furniture for added protection.
