AmeriClean’s Upholstery Cleaning Process:
When our Cleaning Technician arrives he will review your order and inspect the pieces of furniture to be cleaned. He will address your areas of concern and take note of the content of your fabric and soiling conditions advising you of any possible permanent staining.
2. Area Preparation
We take the time to prep the area in which the furniture will be cleaned. Whether your furniture sits on carpet, hardwood or tile the floor will be protected. The AmeriClean’s Cleaning Technician will also move the piece away from the walls and surrounding furnishings to eliminate the possibility of damage or over-spray.
3. Pre-spray & Pre-spot
Soiled areas will be treated with a pre-spray and agitated with an upholstery brush as necessary to loosen the soil. Spots will be addressed with a pre-treatment that fits the criteria of the spot itself.
4. Rinse & Extract
Our hot water truck-mounted system will thoroughly and gently clean the upholstery while extracting the soil and cleaning agents. A rinsing agent is used to neutralize the cleaning agents leaving no residue and softer upholstery. Water pressure is regulated and powerful extraction is used so that the upholstery is not over-wet. Water temperature ranges from 190°—220° F.
Note: Some refer to this as “steam cleaning” however, the technical name for this part of the process is hot water extraction. Steam is not used but it is called steam cleaning due to the water vapors that are created from pressure and hot water.
5. Re-inspection & Re-clean
If any spots or stubborn areas are not removed at this point, specialty spotting techniques are used. If the area is then considered a “stain” you will be informed by your Cleaning Technician.
6. ScotchGard™ Carpet & Fabric Protector (optional)
We recommend having ScotchGard™ re-applied after every cleaning. Even though most upholstery comes with some sort of fabric protector when you buy it, fabric protector wears off over time.
For certain fabrics, the fabric is lightly brushed leaving the fibers standing tall and prepared for drying. This provides faster drying times and it looks nice too. And, if you have ScotchGard™ applied the grooming helps the ScotchGard™ to cover every part of the fibers ensuring proper protection.
We ask that you look over the pieces of furniture that have been cleaned with our Cleaning Technician. This is time for you to notice the job well done and to address any questions/concerns you may have. Our Cleaning Technician will be happy to answer any questions and re-clean any area you have concerns about.
