04 Jun Professional Upholstery Cleaning
An upholstery cleaning service can bring new life to your furniture that may have seen better days, but it is important that you know what to look for in a company, the questions to ask, and what to expect during the process. There are different styles and sizes of furniture, and a good provider will recognize the importance of handling each piece individually rather than as a whole. A cherished couch purchased last year should receive the same level of excellence as a prized family heirloom. Here are some expectations you should consider when hiring a professional upholstery cleaning companies – like Carpet Keepers.
What happens during the upholstery cleaning service?
There are three basic steps to the process: prepping the area, cleaning, and finishing. Each company may have different ways of completing each step, but it ultimately boils down to those three things. You want to transform and give new life to soiled, frazzled furnishings, and a professional is invaluable when it comes to maintaining and restoring furniture as close as possible to its original state.
What to look for in an upholstery cleaning company?
According to the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration, the answer is simple: experience and education. The experienced and educated professional will know how to maintain the integrity of the fabric while completing the project. The best professionals are certified by the IICRC, which sets the standards when it comes to this type of work. Fortunately for you, an IICRC professional can be found at Carpet Keepers Inc. We are CleanTrust certified by the IICRC.
A carpet and upholstery cleaning service is capable of restoring the life to the fabrics in your home and will specialize in more than just eliminating debris and dirt. In fact, many consumers will turn to Carpet Keepers when there has been fire, smoke, or water damage to household or office furniture. Even if they are only able to salvage a few pieces, it is more cost effective than having to make all new purchases.

These days environmental awareness is just as important as maintaining a beautiful home. A reliable and reputable carpet and upholstery cleaning service will also be environmentally conscious of the chemicals used in the process. Not only should the chemicals be safe for disposal, but the chemicals should be non-toxic to the residents—both the family and their pets. A newborn baby should be able to crawl or sleep on the surface once completed and dry. Thorough extraction of the chemicals from the furniture is mandatory to guarantee safety to the consumer.
This is why Carpet Keepers has taken all the extra steps to ensure we remain up-to-date on all the latest certifications and go a step further with CleanTrust certifications. We are also Green Seal certified!
There are emergencies where it is important to get the project started without delays, such as after a basement flood or a sump pump failure. The sooner Carpet Keepers is able to step in and treat the furniture and floors, the more likely we will be able to salvage more pieces.
