There are some similarities between fibers used in carpet and upholstery. Be that as it may, problems may occur where there are subtle differences. The differences are not only in the weaves. But also, dyes and blends as well as the sizing used in many of the more delicate fabrics. We are your expert upholstery cleaning company. Before cleaning begins:
Inconspicuous areas are tested for colorfastness
If there are woven patterns, testing must be done to determine if there is more than 1 fiber being used. Especially, with cotton and polyester blends. In fact, the cotton could shrink while the polyester does not. Which, causes the fabric to “pucker”.

Upholstery is More Delicate Than Carpet
Best Upholstery Cleaning Possible Without Damage
Upholstery is more delicate than carpet. With this in mind, a good knowledge of fiber characteristics is critical in obtaining the best cleaning possible without damage. Often, technicians are not only faced with pet issues. But also, spills or food residues. All of which, require special additives to the cleaning solutions to remove or treat these issues.
Cleaning furnishings exposed to direct sunlight takes great care. Especially, for any extended period of time. Because, this can cause degradation of the material.
