Maintaining Furniture Between Cleanings
Immediately After Cleaning:
Pay Attention to Drying
After cleaning your upholstered furniture will be slightly damp for up to 24 hours, depending on the temperature, air flow and humidity in your home. You can help speed up the drying process by keeping throw pillows or blankets off of damp furniture, running fans, including the summer fan on your furnace, opening windows (in summer) and keeping the area warm. If your furniture is not dry within a day, please contact us.
Spots & Stains
When stains have soaked thoroughly into upholstery, they often spread below the surface into the foam or batting, and cleaning can cause residues to “wick up”, causing stains to reappear or even appear larger after cleaning. If you have any concerns with reappearing stains, or any of the results of your cleaning, even after everything has dried, please telephone us.
Regular Maintenance – Tips for Keeping Upholstery Looking Great
Vacuum thoroughly: Although it may not be obvious, dust and dirt settle into your upholstery from the air and every day use. Vacuuming your furniture thoroughly with the furniture attachment of your vacuum helps to keep your furniture looking great longer. How frequently you should vacuum is based on how must dust is in the home and how much the furniture is used.
Spot Clean: If you have a small spill or spot, clean it carefully and quickly, while it is still wet, following our stain guide. Use an absorbent material such as a cloth diaper or disposable diaper or feminine pad to absorb as much as possible. If there is a large volume of liquid, we recommend calling a professional, as it will be difficult to extract on your own. Visit our Stain Guide for at home spot and stain tips!
