Upholstery Cleaning

Grossbusters Carpet Cleaning provides upholstery cleaning to Lacey, Olympia, Yelm, and Dupont WA area residents. We clean your furniture's upholstery, your vehicle's upholstery, and any other upholstered items that you may have. We clean all kinds of natural and synthetic upholstery including polyester, nylon, cotton, silk, microfiber, velvet and many more.

Our clients choose us time and time again for their upholstery cleaning needs because we outperform other cleaners in the area.

Like our other processes, our approach to upholstery cleaning is extremely thorough

Here are the steps we take to ensure that your upholstered items turn out looking fantastic!

  1. Inspect all upholstery. Identify the fiber type and select a cleaning agent. Be sure to test the fabric for colorfastness prior to cleaning. Look for tears, loose fibers, and other problem areas.

  2. Vacuum all upholstery to be cleaned. Vacuum each side of sofa cushions, under cushion area, and in between cracks. Remove as much hair and debris as possible.

  3. Apply the pre-conditioning agent to loosen up body oils, soil, and other spots and spills

  4. Use a fabric appropriate brush to agitate the pre-conditioner into the upholstery. Use care around loose fibers and other problem areas.

  5. Steam clean the upholstery using the proper chemicals, water pressure, and water temperature. DO NOT OVERWET! Use repeated "vacuum only" passes to remove as much moisture as possible.

  6. Re-inspect the upholstery, checking for spots which did not respond to the primary cleaning system. Apply fabric safe, specialty spot removers as necessary.

  7. If client desires, apply 3M Scotchgard and/or deodorizer at this time.

  8. Create an optimal environment for the upholstery to dry as quickly as possible. Arrange cushions so that air can contact each side. Use fans, turbo dryers, and heaters as necessary.

Special consideration must be given to which type of upholstery is being cleaned. Our technicians are trained to test for colorfastness, fiber strength, and other stability factors before they begin the cleaning process. Grossbusters Carpet Cleaning will recommend the best cleaning method based on which type of upholstery you need cleaned.

Upholstery owners tend to put off professional steam cleaning. As a rule of thumb, the upholstery in your home should be cleaned just as often as your carpet. For most households, this is every 6-12 months depending on a few factors such as number of residents, number of pets, and whether or not there are smokers living in the home. However, if your furniture receives heavy traffic, especially from pets, it may require more frequent cleaning. Oils, dander, and even small bugs like flees and ticks can infest your furniture when cleaning is put off. Individuals who suffer from allergies will especially benefit from frequent, professional steam cleaning.

Selecting the best upholstered furniture for your home...

As important as it is to select the right type of upholstery for your furniture, do not overlook the importance of selecting the right "build" of furniture. You want to make sure that they piece of furniture you choose is strong enough to support the level of traffic it will receive. For example, you should stay away from furniture with soft wood frames if it will be receiving a lot of jumping on and thrashing from kids and pets. Instead, choose furniture with a frame constructed from hardwood like oak, alder, or maple or from metal.

Microfiber SofaAfter you have selected the right type of frame for your furniture, you should now think about which type of upholstery is best for your application. If your furniture will receive heavy traffic from kids and pets, its best to choose a tough, synthetic material like nylon, polyester, or olefin. These materials are extremely durable and don't have complicated cleaning requirements. Microfiber sofas and chairs have become a popular choice in the last decade because of their soft feeling, resemblance to real suede, and ease of cleaning.

Wool CouchIf you are on the market for more luxurious and decorative furniture, consider wool, cotton, velvet, or leather. Furniture covered in these upholsteries can be very beautiful and can add a great feeling to any room. However, they are usually not well suited for heavy traffic and require much more careful cleaning attention. Usually, these materials are far less durable and require specialty chemicals and equipment.
