Reviving that Ugly Couch: Effective Upholstery Cleaning

professional upholstery cleaning lbiIt can be hard to imagine a well-loved piece of furniture can be effectively cleaned, but it is true! Some popular fabrics today, like microfiber for example, seem to stain so easily – and feel impossible to keep clean and maintain. However, that’s not necessarily true.

Crews from Stretch Cleaning have revived literally thousands of pieces of furniture across Long Beach Island. Paying for professional upholstery cleaning is a much more economical solution than just hauling the furniture to the curb and heading to the nearest furniture store for something new. Plus, investing in routine cleanings will help your upholstered furniture last longer. Stretch has special tools and cleaning solutions that can thoroughly, effectively, and efficiently clean your furniture in just a few hours. No more stains, no more being embarrassed about your couch. Plus, professional cleaning can help remove any odors from pets!

Need more convincing? Here are three more reasons to let us revive your furniture:

  1. Protecting your warranty

When you initially purchased your furniture, did you take the time to read the fine print within the manufacturer’s warranty? There is a chance that trying to clean your furniture yourself could void your warranty! That is because, like we said above, every fabric is so different and a cleaner you pluck from a store shelf could actually hurt the fabric. Professional cleaners have experience will all kinds of materials and will know what will and will not work in every situation.

Professional furniture cleaning will simply further protect your investment. If you still have the paperwork from when you purchased your furniture, you might want to check to see what the manufacturer says about cleaning.

  1. Some fabrics and upholstery can be hard to clean

There are more kinds of fabric out there than we could possibly name; truly infinite possibilities. And every single one of those fabrics is different. Some are manmade, some are synthetics. Some are easy to clean, some are not. If you are not a fabric expert, you could do some serious damage to the fabric by using the wrong cleaning solution or technique – like stretching, ripping, or discoloring.

Professional furniture cleaners have a firm understanding of the various types of upholstery, and proper techniques for each. They’ll take care to not over-saturate, which could lead to mold or stretching. They will be sure zippers or metal decorative touches aren’t going to rust, and any wood is also properly maintained.

  1. Extend the life of your furniture

Like we already mentioned, if your furniture is fabric, soil can work its way all the way into the cushions and just continue to accumulate. Want to get even grosser? Dust mites don’t just live in your mattresses. They live in carpeting and upholstery as well. Dust mites survive by living off dead skin cells, which humans shed in droves every single day, meaning your furniture might be providing a constant food source for those dust mites to thrive, and reproduce.
