When picking a piece of furniture or upholstery for a living space it is important to consider your living conditions and what kind of maintenance you are willing to put in in order to preserve your furniture's appearance and integrity. Most synthetic fibers, such as microfiber and polyester, will have a W code, indicating that they can be cleaned with water and with/without a cleaning solvent. Cleaning these types of materials can usually be done without the aid of professional help, however some assistance should be sought when dealing with stubborn stain removal.
Professional cleaning services like Carpet Cleaning Alexandria VA must be hired if your upholstery has a cleaning code of S or S/W. S stands for 'solvent' and W stands for 'water'. In the case of cleaning code S, absolutely no water can come in contact with your upholstered furniture. The only option for cases like this is dry cleaning, which as it turns out, is a very efficient and easily carried out cleaning service offered by Carpet Cleaning Alexandria VA. Code s/w indicates that water can be used but the amount must be regulated. Many people opt to have these types of upholstery professionally cleaned as well. Attempts to DIY will likely lead to upholstery shrinkage or running dyes. Natural fibers like wool and certain cotton blends are the most commonly seen fibers which require this type of professional treatment.
Our furniture and upholstery cleaning services are quite diverse. As mentioned above, we handle all types of fabrics, and a wide variety of upholstered furniture. We can clean your sofa, recliner, overstuffed chair, loveseat, lazy boy, ottoman, bar stools, dining chairs, and of course your mattress as well.
Mattress cleaning every now and then is very important. You spend a long time on your mattress. Like anything else, your mattress absorbs dust particles and along with that, dust mites, pollens, dander, pet hair (if you have them) and many other pathogens that are linked with allergies, respiratory problems and other health issues. Keeping your mattress clean of those is a great step towards better health, and our industrial strength cleaning and hot water extraction makes sure the job is done and your mattress will be completely dry in just a few short hours.
Upholstery cleaning by Carpet Cleaning Alexandria VA includes leather cleaning as well. Leather is an incredibly sturdy material used for various household items and can often outlive many of your other upholstery goods. However, over time leather suffers from a loss of moisture and softness and will require a special cleaning and moisturizing treatment in order to avoid stiffness and cracking caused by perspiration and many body oils. The leather cleaning process is similar to upholstery cleaning in that it is best carried out by a professional, however the steps and products used are totally different. In situations where leather is stained, Carpet Cleaning Alexandria VA suggests using the services of a professional exclusively.For more details on our special deals or about our specialty products, please call us today 703-635-7342.
