Expert Advice

UpholsterysmAccording to the Institute for Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the most recognized body of certification for carpet and upholstery cleaners; to keep your furniture clean, it’s necessary to conduct routine maintenance including vacuuming and immediate attention to spills, coupled with periodic cleaning by a certified technician every one to two years. Furniture and fabric manufacturers recommend that consumers not wait until severe soiling occurs before cleaning because the greater the soiling, the less the likelihood of restoring the fabric’s original color, appearance and texture, and the greater adverse effect on indoor environmental quality.

Regular cleaning of fabric and leather furnishings by a trained, certified technician can help restore your furniture’s appearance, extend its life and keep it looking like new. Moreover, certified technicians can offer simple suggestions to maintain a clean and healthful home or business environment overall. IF THE DAMAGE IS DUE TO WATER, WE HAVE WATER RESTORATION SPECIALISTS THAT CAN HELP AS WELL.

Our Approach

iicrc-certified-firm2We use IICRC certified professionals to clean your upholstery.

The IICRC believes that the best way to maintain a cleaner and healthier home is to augment your regular cleaning and vacuuming with periodic visits from an experienced certified professional. For those tasks that require a specialist — such as carpet and upholstery cleaning, stain removal, and maintenance of wood and tile floors — only a certified technician will deliver the results you can trust.

We use the cleaning method most recommended in the industry!

Our years of experience in carpet and upholstery cleaning (we started in 1996), our commitment to customer service, and our 100% satisfaction “re-clean” guarantee is part of what has made Dan, Dan the Carpet Man the “go to” carpet and upholstery cleaner in Central Florida.

Our well-trained, uniformed and fully certified upholstery cleaning technicians use a “Hot Water Extraction Process” to fully clean and sanitize your furniture. This cleaning method, often called “steam cleaning”, is recommended for most fabrics by furniture manufacturers and retail furniture stores. Alternate cleaning methods may actually void the manufacturer’s warrantee.

We offer a low moisture solution to safely clean both synthetic and natural fabrics. And, for “finer” (thinner) fabrics, we have a very-low moisture process that actually “lifts” the fabric off the cushion and/or frame to prevent over-wetting delicate components and damaging loose cushion fill. (see Equipment for more information)

After our cleaning process, you’ll have a complete, deep-clean and corrective cleaning on your upholstered furniture.

We use 100% earth friendly, eco-responsible, and non-toxic fabric cleaning solutions that are safe for your home, your family, and the environment.

Customers must acknowledge this policy in writing prior to starting any job.

Our Process

7-step cleaning method for cleaning your upholstered furniture

  1. Pre-inspection. A closer look at your furniture reveals what can be cleaned and how well. We identify the type of fabric and use the IICRC recommended cleaning method.
  2. Vacuum. Our powerful system exhausts outside your home to keep indoor air fresh.
  3. Pre-treat. To make our deep cleaning even more effective, we use a proprietary 3-part mixture (disinfectant, deodorizer, and emulsifier).
  4. Pre-spot. Our technician will identify resistant spots and apply a treatment.
  5. Deep Clean. Using commercial-duty truck-mounted equipment, we clean your furniture using a hot-water (240 degrees) extraction system (specialized wand).
  6. Post spot. If any spots remain we will retreat and clean immediately.
  7. Post-inspection. We’re only finished when we review the work and you are satisfied that we have done our very best.

Please note: Our high-tech process removes most “spots” from your furniture. However, we cannot guarantee to remove “permanent stains” (whether organic, non-organic, or petroleum-based) from fabrics using our regular “steam cleaning” process alone. Some stains can be removed by alternate methods using special techniques and solvents. Please ask our technician for more specific information regarding stain removal, should any remain after our thorough cleaning.

It’s Time

When do you need professional upholstery cleaning?

To keep your home looking its best, plan to have your upholstered furniture professionally cleaned on a regular schedule. Clean heavily-used pieces at 12-month intervals and lightly-used pieces at 24-month intervals. Periodic professional cleaning removes accumulated grime, helping fabric to retain its original appearance as much as possible. Increase cleaning intervals when fabric is subjected to heavy use, or when it is located in homes occupied with persons with allergies or respiratory sensitivity.

Proper maintenance of upholstery fabrics permits less frequent cleaning, so in between professional cleanings here’s how you can keep your furniture in top shape.

  • Remove dry soil by vacuuming and (depending on the fabric) brushing to remove dust and soil particles.
  • Only vacuum with a proper upholstery attachment should be done regularly and thoroughly to remove airborne dust and lint.
  • Loose cushions should be turned and rotated to equalize wear and soiling levels.
  • Monitor any build-up of soil on the fabric’s surface and treat spots and stains (with proper techniques and solutions) immediately after spills or soiling occurs.

Dirty upholstery can make your entire room feel dirty. It’s a shame to have spots and stains on your furniture.

Our Equipment

UpholsterytoolUsing commercial-duty truck-mounted equipment, we clean your upholstered furniture using a hot-water (240 degrees) extraction system with a standard upholstery tool. This is the same equipment we use for cleaning carpets – only the wand is different (see photo). We can also attach a very-low moisture cleaning head – a Hydromaster Tool (see photo) – when cleaning more delicate (lighter) fabrics..

We dispatch a fully-equipped professional cleaning crew to your job. We have the equipment and the trained personnel to get your job done correctly (according to IICRC standards) and efficiently (in a reasonable timeframe that permits thorough cleaning).

Vehicle Fleet. Service Vans with power unit and self-contained water tank. Trailers with power unit only.

Safety. Vehicle parking cones, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, and other DOT-required equipment.

Site Protection. Pressure hose connector covers, door mat, non-marring hose retainer (for 2nd floor work), and furniture blocks (furniture moving services available) are standard site protection equipment. The use of safety signs, corner guards, entry door seal (for hoses), shoe covers, and other site protection equipment and procedures are only included with our UltraCare™ package.

Non-power Equipment. Our service vehicles are outfitted with a full complement of cleaning equipment (buckets, mops, brushes, etc.), pump-up sprayers, hand tools, and crew convenience items (drinking water, handsoap, personal gear).

Power Unit. Commercial grade, vehicle mounted, gasoline-powered, high pressure (1000psi) hot Water (240 degrees) extraction equipment specifically designed for cleaning carpet, upholstered furniture, and tile floors.

Hoses. Non-marring vacuum (2”) hoses and high-pressure hot water hoses (3/4”) reach up to 250’ and are maintained on vehicle-mounted reels. Metal couplings are covered with protective jackets (pressure hose connector covers).

Filters. Our pre-filter collects carpet fiber and all other debris. Any valuable items swept up by our vacuum process can easily be recovered before reaching our main filter.

Power Head. We use a specially-designed “upholstery wand” to pressure clean your upholstered furniture while simultaneously removing the water, dirt, and cleaning solutions. We also have a very low-moisture tool (HydraMaster’s patented DriMaster™ Upholstery Tool pictured below) so that we can safely clean lighter fabrics, 0both synthetic and natural.

Low-moisture Upholstery Tool

Hydramaster_toolHydraMaster’s patented DriMaster™ Upholstery Tool is unlike any other. Using new Jetless Cleaning Technology, it has no trigger valve, no spray jet, and never needs a second drying-pass. The solution is under constant flow, trained by the patented injector bar and slotted vacuum port system. The result is a highly effective cleaning tool that works without overwetting or heat loss. Even narrow areas can be cleaned without any overspray. The high flow/low residual moisture effect of this new technology leaves the fabric cleaner and drier while greatly reducing the chances of damage. No second pass, no over-spray, and high-volume water flow all contribute to the efficiency and speed of cleaning. And, at less than half the weight of other upholstery tools, multiple holding positions are possible so operators can effectively clean the entire surface area without undue stain or arm fatigue. When the high performance cleaning of the DriMaster™ Tool is combined with state-of-the-art cleaning chemistry, our technicians can treat most cleanable fabrics with fantastic results!

Fabric Protector

Our application protects against re-staining

The best possible way to protect upholstered furniture (and keep it looking new) is to apply fabric protection. Treated upholstery lasts longer and cleans more easily.

When you apply (“spray-on”) a quality fabric protection treatment (all surfaces get coverage) to upholstered furniture, a protective barrier is created to help prevent permanent staining and soiling. The odorless treatment does not change the look or feel of the fabric and it is safe for the environment (it’s non-allergenic too). This invisible barrier protects against the dirt and dust particles that cause excess abrasion and premature fabric wear.

Provided that the proper cleaning procedures are followed, treated upholstery will clean up easily and quickly after spills or other types of soiling. But, no fabric protector is absolutely impenetrable and improper cleaning methods can damage both the fabric and the treatment.

Dan, Dan recommends the application of a micro protectant – a permanent coating that repels liquids, prevents spotting, and resists soiling (like the original manufacturer). This application will last through multiple professional steam cleanings. Alternately we can apply a water-based protection that will need to be replaced after each cleaning. Ask your technician to help you decide what product is best for your home and lifestyle.
