No two pieces of furniture are exactly alike which means no two pieces of furniture should be cleaned exactly the same way. Depending on the type of fabric and grades of fibers – not to mention fabric protectors, a custom cleaning approach is always the best idea.
Learn about the Steps to Clean Your Upholstery
The first step is to find the tag on the piece of furniture and read the instructions. The manufacturer should give some indication what the fabric is and how it should be cared for. This will give you, or a professional cleaner, a great place to start.
Next, the decision should be made if you need an allover cleaning or if a spot treatment for problem areas is the best approach. Typically, there will be a combination of both. While the chair or sofa may not look dirty all over, once a spot is removed, or a heavily soiled area is cleaned, the rest of the piece will seem dirty in comparison.
A deep cleaning will be necessary to completely clean highly soiled areas caused by spills or pets which have made an end of your sofa their favorite sleeping place. An initial treatment will loosen the dirt and soil which is what hiding the original beauty of your furniture.
After the heavily soiled areas are treated, typically a steam cleaning will be used for an overall cleaning. The before and after difference can be remarkable. Drying times can depend on several factors, but your furniture should be dry within a couple of hours or so.
