An Ultimate Guide to Getting Your Upholstery Cleaned

The furniture that we buy can often become the focal points of the rooms in which we place them, which is probably why we’re always keen to keep them as clean as possible.

A clean and tidy home can also have various mental health benefits on top of keeping bacteria and germs at bay, so it really does pay to have your upholstery cleaned thoroughly.

In this article, the John Frederick team will be covering why having your upholstery cleaned professionally is so important, as well as what a professional cleaning service looks like.

Why you should leave it to the professionals

When it comes to cleaning your upholstery, it’s always best to enlist specialists who have the best possible equipment for the job.

Furniture such as sofas and chairs can often have very delicate fabric coverings, and simply running a domestic vacuum over them can often do more harm than good.

When you choose a professional team such as John Frederick to clean your upholstery, you benefit from their many years of experience, as well as their high-quality equipment and techniques that will ensure a thorough clean.

You can also be secure in the knowledge that your upholstery won’t get damaged during the cleaning process, and will ultimately maximise the life expectancy of your furniture.

What a professional cleaning service includes

When you choose a professional team to clean your upholstery, here’s what you can expect from the service:

Inspection: firstly, your team will carry out a thorough inspection of all of your furniture to assess what tools will best bring about the desired outcome. This is also where specific stains and problem areas will be identified that might require special attention later on.

Vacuuming: once the inspection has been carried out and problem areas identified, your team will carry out a comprehensive vacuuming of your upholstery using a specialist machine.

This will help get rid of dust, dirt and fibres.

Specific area cleaning: After vacuuming, your team will then look at specific areas that require special attention, such as stubborn stains. Here, specialist detergents will be used to ensure the stain is removed without damaging the upholstery.

Deep cleaning: if your upholstery will allow it, your furniture will then undergo a general deep clean which will revitalise every single area.

Post-clean protection: To ensure that your furniture is protected long term, your team can apply a coating to your upholstery to keep dirt and bacteria at bay.
