Residential And Commercial Upholstery Cleaning Services
Your home should be your safe haven. A place of peace, rest and recuperation. You should be able to come from work and lounge back on the cosy furniture that you had set up in the residence. From the individual units like loveseats to the multi sectional sofas – whichever kind of unit that you have purchased for the space, it should enable you to sit back comfortably on it, as well as host guests with confidence. This won’t be the case when the upholstery is all soiled up. For starters, it makes the furniture appear older than it actually is, and negatively affects the décor of the room. The stains seem to mock you, a constant reminder of things spiralling out of control. The dirt spots gradually take away the appeal of the furnishings, and this is enough to ruin your mood the moment you walk through the front doors – but it’s just the tip of the iceberg. Gunk accumulating within the upholstered units is a major cause of their deterioration, with the wearing down reducing their lifespan. Those stains that are sitting into the fabric get more difficult to remove the longer that the upholstery cleaning is procrastinated. Decomposing residue, urine and body oil on the furnishings, urine contamination, and even smoke for cases where there has been fire incidents in the house or there are persons who smoke cigarettes – these contribute to the odours emanating from the upholstery, making those elegant sets of furniture uncomfortable to use. Speaking of discomfort, add allergens to the cocktail of substances that are riddling the dirty upholstery. These trigger reactions whenever the upholstery material is disturbed – which can occur by a person simply sitting on the sofa. A thorough upholstery cleaning is necessary to get these agents out of the material.
For commercial spaces, image is everything. Whether it’s an office building, art gallery, shopping complex, hotel, restaurant or pub, you want to have a professional look and feel that gives clients coming over confidence in your products and services. A soiled and stained set of furniture will paint the business as one that does not pay attention to detail, which can cause you to lose your clients to the competition. It’s even worse when customers and employees are exposed to health risks due to the gunk that is in the workspace. From the furniture out in the lounge area, those in the offices themselves, to the sofas in the employee break room – they all need quality care to protect the health of those using them. For your employees, the workspace is basically their second home since they spend most of the week in it, thus the need to provide a conducive environment for them to carry out their activities in. This entails ensuring that the premises is well maintained – including scheduling regular commercial upholstery cleaning services.
When dealing with the upholstery, it’s not just an issue of mixing up a detergent in water, sloshing it over the material, and scrubbing away. For starters, the different kinds of upholsteries – from natural to synthetic materials, have their suitable set of cleaning products that can be safely used on them. The products that can work on wool and silk upholsteries are different from those used on nylon units. Even water, which is taken to be a universal cleaning agent, can end up leaving water stains when used on leather upholstery. The pH of the solution used is key, in a bid to avoid cases of the material getting corroded, which is a common occurrence during the DIY upholstery cleaning tasks. With the large amount of money that was spent getting the right upholstery that suits your decor preferences, you don’t want to watch it go down the drain because of blunders made during the cleaning process.
With regards to the quantity of solutions used, here the main risk is overwetting the upholstery. This can lead to issues like colour bleeding, and prolong the drying time. Leaching of the dyes that the upholstery had been treated with takes away the aesthetic appeal of the furniture. Long drying times on the other hand increase the risk of mould growing in your unit, which comes with numerous risks to the users of the furniture, due to the spores and mycotoxins that are produced by the fungi.
During the DIY upholstery cleaning, one of the issues faced is the usage of low-capacity machinery. These units, rented from the local dealerships, lack the power and capacity seen with the industrial-grade machinery that the professional upholstery cleaning companies use. This causes aspects ranging from insufficient cleaning where residue still remains in the upholstery being worked on, to inadequate extraction of the waster from the material, contributing to the unit taking longer to dry. This is inconvenient. For instance, with more residue remaining in the furniture, you’re forced to redo the upholstery cleaning much sooner than had been anticipated, which takes up more time and resources. The furniture taking long to dry also renders it unusable for that duration, interfering with your day-to-day life.
Then there is the amount of time spent. Your weekends and days off from work should be spent relaxing, not dealing with arduous chores like the upholstery cleaning. It’s more frustrating when you dedicate your time to this and wind up with subpar results where you’re forced to redo the task. You don’t have to take on this burden. Leave the upholstery cleaning to the professional crew, who have the skills and machinery needed to deliver quality results fast.
