Craig's Upholstery Cleaning
Craig’s Upholstery Cleaning technicians are experienced in cleaning the finest upholstered fabrics. Our technicians will always follow a 11 stage process when cleaning upholstery.
Step 1: Pre-Inspection
Our technician will perform special tests to determine the content of your fabric. The content will determine what type of cleaning solutions and techniques will be used. We will also point out any potential permanent stains or areas of concern.
Step 2: Area Preparation
We will prepare the area where the upholstery will be cleaned, to protect your surrounding furnishings and floor coverings.
Step 3: Pre-Vacuum
All textiles should be vacuumed thoroughly before cleaning. This step will remove all dry soils and any loose particles from cracks and crevices.
Step 4: Pre-Treatment
Depending on your fabric, a special solution designed for your fabric type and the soiling condition will be applied to "emulsify" the soil.
Step 5: Pre-Spot
Any potentially difficult spots will be pre-treated with special solutions to increase our chances of removal.
Step 6: Pre-Groom
The fabric will then be gently groomed using soft upholstery brushes to loosen the soil.
Step 7: Soil Extraction and Rinse
The soil is then extracted from the fabric with a gentle, controlled rinse using our Butler upholstery tools, if utilizing truck mount unit upon request, which ensure that your fabrics never get over-wet and the maximum amount of dirt and soil is extracted..
Step 9: Post Spot
Any remaining spots will be treated with special stain removal products.
Step 10: Post Groom
The upholstery will then be prepared for drying with a gentle combing of the fabric.
Step 11: Post Cleaning Inspection
Our technician will review the cleaning results with you to insure that your expectations have been met or exceeded.
For longer fabric life and fewer permanent stains, we recommend that you go for our Gold service and have Fabric Protector applied!!
Optional (additional charges apply): Upholstery Protection &Turbo Drying
Fabrics treated for repellency with fabric protection aids to prevent & fight off dry soil and nasty, unpredictable spills and splashes, allowing liquids to bead up and roll off. Liquid spills can easily be wiped away when blotted with a clean cloth, and dry soil can be brushed off easily. Its also great for mattresses, fabrics, upholstery, luggage and outdoor fabrics.
Upon request we will place air movers in the cleaning area to encourage much faster drying of the fabrics. Sometimes upholstery is touch dry before we leave.
