Upholstery Cleaning Vancouver: How to Clean Up like a Pro

Apr 12th, 2019 | by Angelo |    0   

Even though Angelo’s FabriClean is best known for being a team of Vancouver carpet cleaners, these technicians also offer upholstery cleaning in Vancouver. From a full-scale cleaning to the occasional touch-up, your La-Z-Boys, sofas, drapes, and chaise lounges will all be in good hands!

The key steps for cleaning any kind of fabric-covered furniture remains basically the same. It’s important to vacuum away loose dirt and then steam it while paying special attention to stains and spots. However, before doing anything, remember to check the fabric codes (if applicable). This might not be possible on older or antique items, but you should have an idea of what the fabric is—and what it can tolerate—before attempting anything.

For DIYers, a handheld garment steamer will work well on furniture. In addition to helping clean the fabric, this will kill dust mites near the surface. Use the upholstery attachment of a vacuum to go over the entire thing. Remove any cushions to clean separately and clean underneath them as well.

But before treating any spots or stains, be sure to check any fabric code as well as product instructions. If there are no fabric codes or instructions, conduct a spot test where fabric cannot be seen.

Upholstery Fabric Codes

  • W means water-based cleaners are okay to use.
  • W/S means that both water and solvent-based cleaners are safe.
  • S means only solvent-based cleaning chemicals should be used.
  • X means do nothing more than vacuum or brush the fabric.

Following these tips will help keep your furniture looking better and brighter. But when it’s time to call a Vancouver upholstery cleaner, contact Angelo's Carpet Cleaning. By considering the fabric construction, fibre content and dye stability, the technicans at Angelo’s can determine the safest, most effective method to clean all your upholstered furniture.
