Homeowners know that keeping surfaces in their home free from dust and soil is an everyday task, but often their upholstery is overlooked. To preserve the fabric's color, appearance, and texture, upholstery cleaning should be attended to on a regular basis. In addition to routine vacuuming and immediate attention to spills, periodic cleaning by a professional at Enviro Pro Clean, LLC every one to three years will extend the life of furniture, as well as help to maintain a healthy and clean indoor environment.

Identify Cleaning Codes

Before cleaning upholstery it is important to first look at its cleaning code. This code will inform you what kind of cleaning is recommended. The cleaning code for a couch or chair is typically found underneath the cushion of the base:

  • "S" - Water should not be used to clean this fabric. It must be dry cleaned with cleaning solvents. Professional cleaning is highly recommended for this type of furniture, which should be regularly vacuumed or brushed to prevent a buildup of soil.
  • "W" - This fabric is compatible with water, and will tolerate a water-based upholstery cleaner.
  • "S/W" - This code means a combination of dry cleaning solvents and water can be used. Spot cleaning can be done with upholstery shampoo or foam from a mild detergent, provided the fabric is not saturated.
  • "X" - This code is seen more rarely, and indicates the furniture should never be cleaned with water or solvents; vacuuming is necessary.

Allergy Control

In a building with allergy-sensitive individuals, upholstery cleaning should be done more often. Indoor allergens such as dust mites may be controlled through regular cleaning of all surfaces in the home and business, and upholstery cleaning is no exception.

Stain Treatment

If you've stained the upholstery on a favorite chair, keep in mind this stain is much different than a stain on your favorite shirt or pants. While stains on most of your clothing can be easily treated and washed out, stains on upholstery are more difficult to remove for a few reasons:

~ Many fabrics can't come into contact with water, or else they will be irreparably damaged. This means spot-cleaning minor stains on your upholstery or drapes requires more preparation and a different approach from cleaning stained clothing.

~ While it might be easy to throw out your old stained shirt and buy a new one, furniture is an investment of hundreds to thousands of dollars, and the right maintenance will help them last as long as possible.

~ If you decide to hire a professional to treat your upholstery stain, you'll get the best results if you've been maintaining the furniture with regular dusting, brushing, and rotating seat cushions.

(Never spray stain remover directly on the stain on your upholstery it could create a new stain it is better to spray remover on a clean white cloth and blot the stain, never scrub stain you could work stain deeper into the fabric or you could spread the stain)

To keep a healthy, clean indoor environment, upholstery cleaning should not be overlooked.
