Upholstery Cleaning

Performance Carpet Cleaners is experienced in cleaning all types of upholstery fabrics ... from cotton and cotton blends to microfiber to synthetics to wool ... and everything in between.  We specialize in cleaning furniture with fine down stuffing. 

Furniture and fabric manufacturers agree that you should not wait until soiling is apparent to have a professional clean your upholstered furniture.

Look at the manufacturer's label, as it will tell you the type of fabric and the recommended cleaning method.

The codes are:

"W" = Clean with water.

"S" = Clean with a furniture cleaning solvent.

"SW" = Both water and solvent can be used.

"X" = Do not apply water or solvents.  Instead, clean with a soft brush or dry cleaning.

The longer you wait to clean your upholstered furniture, the greater the soiling and the less likely the fabric’s original color, appearance and texture will be restored. Just as dirt can break-down the fibers of carpets, it can also break-down fabric fibers.

Even if stains are not visible, the upholstery fabric can harbor bacteria, as well as mold ,dust, mildew and allergens.  If it is not removed, it can be effect your healthy home environment.

Routine upholstery maintenance includes regular vacuuming and immediate attention to spills, in addtion to periodic cleaning by professionals.  Most experts recommend upholstery cleaning every year or two.

Other tips include:
- Use arm caps and rotating seat cushions to prolong life of the upholstery
- Vacuum the furniture regularly to remove dry soil and dust.
- Do not soak upholstery with water.  Using excessive water will prevent it from drying properly and can cause mildew and mold to form.
