Our Upholstery cleaning service can clean & sanitize any piece of furniture that has fabric on it. Our technicians are trained to identify different types of fabric and the best cleaning method needed. Not all fabric can be cleaned with the hot water extraction method. Some fabric will need to be cleaned using a dry cleaning method. However, whatever the method needed, Snow White can provide it. We will ensure that the right cleaning method is used to provide the best results.
Freshen Fabric & Eliminate Bacteria
Allergists, upholsterers and cleaners all agree that DUST is the #1 enemy of upholstered furniture. Gritty matter blows in through open doors and windows and impregnates itself on your furniture cushions and back. Think of how much dust would accumulate on a table if it were never dusted. That same amount is on your sofa. You just can’t see it. Then when you sit on the cushion the oils from your skin and hair compress the dirt into the fabric where it’s almost impossible to remove with vacuum cleaning.
The abrasive action of the grit pressing into the fiber CUTS the fibers like a knife – that’s why your furniture wears out. Then combine this with pollens, food crumbs, dust mites and their nasty fecal pellets…your furniture is literally awash with soil within the short span of just a year (with an average family). If you have pets and kids your furniture needs to be cleaned thoroughly at least once a year.
Bacteria and Germs are the result of soils that are not removed from furniture on a regular basis. The byproduct of decaying living materials decomposing is a foul smell that characterizes furniture that has not been cleaned regularly.
Is Fabric Protection Necessary? You benefit by having us apply our carpet & fabric protection any time we clean your carpets, rugs and furniture. Our protector makes it more difficult for spills, spots, and stains to PENETRATE to the interior of the fibers (where they cause permanent color change). The protector keeps messes on the surface where they can be more easily cleaned. Some fabrics have protector applied during the manufacturing process. However, the protection degrades over time with use. It must be refreshed from time to time. To learn more about our Scotchgard Protector, click here.
We don’t just clean carpets. Snow White’s cleaning technicians are also experts in cleaning upholstery. We know the right cleaning methods for a particular fiber or fabric. We can clean different types of fabric construction such as Jacquard weave, Pile weave, Dobby weave, Haitian Cotton, Denim Twill weave, Velvet weave, Chenille, Microfiber and more. Our steam-powered equipment will clean almost any sofa, love seat, chair or other piece of upholstered furniture.
Often upholstery fabrics are blends of different fibers. These give the upholstery various textures and effects. It also creates challenges for cleaning since not every fiber can be identified. These challenges include bleeding, fading, loss of finish, browning, and shrinking. Some fabric is sometimes worn to the point that when cleaned it may separate or break. We will use our professional expertise and tools to give you the best possible cleaning but cannot make any guarantee regarding the above cautions. Your home contains many pieces of furniture created from many different fibers, each with different characteristics. Cleaning these fibers properly takes experience and the correct cleaning methods. No one method cleans all upholstery fibers. So that expensive living room set, dining room chair cushion, or office ensemble you bought years ago doesn’t need to be replaced. Snow White will make it look like new again.
So when you call us to have your carpets cleaned, don’t ignore your furniture. We can do both at the same time. You can also drop off a piece of furniture or just a cushion if needed to our shop. Just call to schedule a time!
