Upholstery cleaning is similar to carpet cleaning in a few ways. First, your upholstery is pre-treated with a cleaning agent designed to loosen soil and body oil deposits that attach to your upholstery simply from regular use. The fabric is gently agitated with an upholstery brush. This agitation is part of the cleaning process. Next, two hoses are run through your home. One supplies steam for the upholstery cleaning process and the other provides vacuum to extract the soil and moisture during the cleaning process. Your upholstery is carefully cleaned with a special tool that is designed to provide steam and vacuum at the same time. Steam is used as a carrier to remove the soil and oil deposits, along with the cleaning product. Then the vacuum or extraction just pulls all of the soil, moisture, and cleaning product out, leaving upholstery residue free!
Even leather furniture needs a regular cleaning. It takes on the same dirt and pollutants as upholstered furniture. But unlike upholstered furniture, leather faces the added challenge of lost moisture and softness over time. Store-bought leather cleaners and conditioners provide immediate relief, but they can also cause long-term damage. Proper maintenance demands an experienced professional. Carpet N Cleaning Company uses safe, professional leather cleaners, moisturizers and protectors to rejuvenate your leather furniture—without harmful side effects.
