Carpet and upholstery cleaning in the modern age
There are two types of Carpet and upholstery cleaning methods currently in vague today.
1. Steam Cleaning
2. Dry Cleaning
Both of these methods involve the use of certain highly specialised machines to clean old carpets and upholstery and make them look as good as new. As a general rule it is advisable to have your carpets dry cleaned in the winter months and steam cleaned in summers. Steam cleaning systems are markedly different from dry cleaning systems in the sense that they offer more extensive deep cleaning then their dry cleaning counterparts.
Upholstery and Soft Furnishings
Soft furnishings scattered all over the house in the main, tend to become dirty and prone to fading after extensive usage. However, if they are regularly washed by professionals who know just what type of chemicals to use and are skilled enough to make sure that excessive cleaning does not cause the original colour and lustre to neither fade nor allow fibres to be sucked off during the vacuuming process (thus giving your furniture a ‘bald’ look) then such regular treatments and cleaning can actually improve both the appearance of your soft furnishings. But it must be remembered that the key word here is ‘Gentleness.’
Hard scrubbing with powerful cleansers may simply do more harm than good and multiple cleaning sessions may actually mar the original beauty of your cherished arm chair or sofa set. This is where skill and expertise comes in, a department in which not every carpet cleaning company excels.
This is why when opting for a cleaning service make sure that the technicians you have chosen have been specially trained in the care of virtually all fabric types, including the most soft and delicate upholstery, so you may relax, knowing that they have just the right cleaning products and solutions for all your cleaning requirements both for your carpets as well as upholstery.
True blue professionals also use sophisticated tools to clean crevices and other hard to reach places, quickly and seamlessly, effectively ensuring all your soft furnishings are spick and span.
Truck-Mounted Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning System
A truck mount carpet cleaner is basically a cleaning unit that is fixed inside a van or alternately a mobile trailer.
Unlike conventional cleaning units a truck mounted carpet cleaning system is fully self contained, which is why it will not need to use either your water or your electricity resources. This system will give not just carpets but even soft furnishings the deepest and most comprehensive cleaning possible.
Carpet and upholstery cleaning requires a lot of skill and training. When you go for a service provider try and find out if they have completed extensive qualifications with both the Institute of Inspection & Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the National Carpet Cleaners Association (NCCA).
In addition to that, some service providers complete a six months ‘on-site training course’ to ensure that they are at the very top of their field in terms of professional expertise and know how.
