There's nothing like new upholstery or furniture to freshen up your home. You have made an investment and you want to keep it looking great... but how long it remains looking crisp and clean is entirely up to you.
First, you and I will evaluate your furniture’s needs. “Every item must be treated differently." Then we’ll decide what will be the best approach and why! Each manufacturer recommends a specialized cleaning method, and best of all, you’ll know up front what we can and can’t do! This way there’s no surprises!
HOW DOES FURNITURE GET DIRTY AND WHY DOESN’T IT SEEM TO SHOW?
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. Then when you sit on the cushion the oils from your skin 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 a 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 by-product of decaying living materials decomposing is a foul smell that characterizes furniture that has not been cleaned regularly.
WHY DOESN’T DIRT SHOW? Because today’s fabrics are designed to HIDE dirt with patterns and colors…But just because it doesn’t show doesn’t mean it’s not there.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE MY FURNITURE CLEANED?
If you’re a retired couple and live in your home 6 months a year…probably every 2 or 3 years. If you have an active family with 3-5 kids and pets – I suggest at LEAST twice a year.
WHY PROFESSIONAL CLEANING?
Because Victoria Carpet Care uses special cleaning agents that sanitize and remove soil from your fabric furniture with extremely hot water and professional cleaning products, tools, and expertise
MANY FABRICS ARE DELICATE
If you try spot cleaning furniture you can RUIN it by not getting it evenly wet. We have seen many instances of damage done to furniture by clients who’ve tried to clean it themselves.
IS PROTECTANT NECESSARY?
You benefit by having us apply our protectant any time we clean your carpets, rugs, and furniture. Our protectant makes it more difficult for spills, spots, and stains to PENETRATE to the interior of the fibers (where they cause permanent color change). The protectant keeps messes on the surface where they can be more easily cleaned.
Some fabrics have protectant applied during the manufacturing process. The protectant degrades over time with use and cleaning and must be “refreshed” from time to time.
