Steps for Upholstery Cleaning

From heavily soiled to light cleaning, our upholstery cleaning treatment is designed to restore your furniture as close to its original condition as possible. We clean all types of upholstery, even the most delicate of fabrics. We take the following steps when we clean upholstered furniture

Pre-Inspection
Our service technician will inspect the upholstery, noting fabric type and soiling conditions. He will also advise you of any possible permanent staining.

Area Preparation
We will prepare the area where the upholstery will be cleaned to protect your surrounding floors and furnishings. In some cases, we clean your upholstery outside to avoid damaging your floor (especially if you have wooden tiles)

Pre-Vacuum
Your upholstery will be thoroughly vacuumed to remove dry soil. Removing dry soil is one of the most important steps in cleaning.

Pre-Treat
The fabric is pretreated with special cleaning compounds specially designed for your particular fabric and soil condition. This loosens up the soil to make rinsing more effective.

Pre-Spot
Any potentially difficult spots will be pretreated with special solutions to increase chances of removal.

Pre-Groom
The fabric will then be gently groomed with a white towel or soft upholstery brushes to loosen the soil.

Soil Extraction and Rinse
The soil is then exacted from the fabric with a gentle controlled rinse.

Post-Spot Treatment
If any spots are not removed during the cleaning process, specialty-spotting techniques are employed, however potential permanent stains as identified by the technician may or may not be removed.

Post Inspection
Our technician will review the cleaning results to ensure expectations have been met or exceeded.

Upholstery Cleaning

When you decide to hire a professional upholstery cleaner, you may be concerned about the use of soaps or harsh chemicals  that can leave a sticky residue and could be harmful to children and pets. With Kairos Upholstery, you don’t have to worry about that.

Sanitizer and Deodorizer to Reduce Allergens and Bacteria

Does anyone in your home suffer from allergies or asthma, making you more keenly aware of allergens and air quality in your home? Do you want to avoid the spread of everyday germs and bacteria in your home? Soft furnishings such as couches and chairs are actually beneficial to home health because they act like giant filters that absorb and trap common allergens and germs. But, just like any air filter, they must be properly cleaned to remain most effective at trapping particulates as they settle from the air. Kairos Upholstery’s cleaning method has been tested and proven to remove an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from the carpets and upholstery we clean.

Tips for Maintaining Upholstery

Buy the right fabric
When it comes to buying sofa synthetic fabrics are one of the more preferred choices as they are easier to maintain for cleaning purposes and have good wearing factors. If you have pets or children then synthetic fabrics are a good choice for you. Avoid the fabrics that have too much texture or ones like linen or cotton which are very light in color as these can be hard to clean and remove stubborn stains from.

Fabric protection
Fabric protection is the best way to boost the durability of your fabric without harming your home and surroundings and it helps to reduce the effect of stains in the fabric because it doesn’t allow them to absorb below the surface. Moreover, it makes regular cleaning more effective. There are two types of stain guards to place on any upholstered sofas, one is a water-based stain guard and the other is a solvent based stain guard, they are both highly effective however the solvent stain guard is applied on neat and can only be applied on when the sofa is either brand new or after it has been cleaned and dried before application. The solvent stain guard is our choice for your stain guarding needs.

Rotate cushions
Your sofa and chairs receive a lot of traffic and wear. However, you can keep your furniture looking like new by flipping and rotating the cushions from time to time. This is an easy way to prevent cushions from sagging and helps them to keep their shape.

Fabric Care
If you are not sure what cleaning method is suitable for a particular fabric, there are a lot of certified cleaning experts in Adelaide that not only offer carpet and upholstery cleaning and maintenance services but also offer tips for care and maintenance of fabrics.

Clean regularly
Upholstered furniture can enhance the overall look of your interiors. In order to keep them looking new and fresh, some maintenance is always required. Cleaning your upholstery regularly offers various benefits including better indoor air quality, maintain the appearance of your home, longevity and eliminate allergens. The process which is most suited for sofa cleaning is by steam cleaning with high heat to ensure the fabric dries quickly and also the dirty stains and soiling is captured out of the material back into the machine. A fiber rinse is also used when steam cleaning upholstery as this leaves the fabric in a neutral state without feeling sticky and attracting further soiling from hands or any bodily oils.

Remove odors
If you have found that your upholstered furniture is smelling, and it’s bothering you a lot. To remove the musty odors , you can spray at a distance glen20 over the sofas, however a professional really is required at this stage to remove the unwanted odors that are in the sofa, if its animal odors we would advise you to tell the technician to use their ultraviolet torch to see if there are any urine marks present. Airing the sofa cushions outside may also assist and a deep vacuum all over to ensure all pet hair and crumbs are all removed.

Clean up spills
When stains are left unattended for a long time, they become harder to remove. As soon as you spot the spills clean them immediately. Use a white cloth or paper towels to blot the spillage up as much as you can. Do not scrub or rub the stains as this will only make things worse and could leave a permanent stain. Also, do not use any coloured towel or sponges, bleach, oily substances, or powerful detergents.

Professional Cleaning
Professional cleaning is recommended on annual basis or beforehand. When the weather starts getting warmer, make sure you contact a certified and reputed cleaning professional. So, save your valuable time by hiring carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning experts in Adelaide.

Keep away from direct sunlight
Never keep your upholstered furniture in the direct sunlight as this can fade the fabric. If you can’t move the furniture then look for the sheers or fitting blinds to filter the light.

Treat furniture right
As hard as this maybe try not to let your pets sleep on the furniture give them a soft cushion to sit on instead. Do not let kids jump on the couch or climb over furniture and ban drinking and eating on the couch. Plus, keep sharp objects, chemicals, body oils, ink, or fluids clear of your fabric.
