Furniture and Upholstery Cleaning ~ Victoria, British Columbia
“Most people don’t realize just how soiled their upholstered furniture is…and how much contaminated dirt, pollen, dust mite feces, pollution, and grunge sit in the cushions”. Russ Sheriff, Owner
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 pellet…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.
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 230 degree hot water and professional cleaning products, tools, and techniques.
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 carpet and upholstery protector any time we clean your carpets, rugs, and furniture. Our carpet and upholstery 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 protectant applied during the manufacturing process. The protectants degrade over time with use and cleaning and must be “refreshed” from time to time.
Our VICTORIA CARPET CARE vans are outfitted with an extensive list of steam cleaning features that distinguishes it as the most thoroughly equipped, versatile machine in the industry.
