You chose your furniture with care. You can trust the experts at Alberta Carpet Cleaning to take care in cleaning it.

More than just carpet cleaning – Alberta Carpet Cleaning technicians are trained and equipped to clean your upholstered and leather furniture! Even with regular vacuuming and spot cleaning for spills or stains, furniture needs cleaning every 18 to 24 months to maintain it’s best appearance and extend its maximum useful life.

Most furniture holds up very well to daily wear and tear without showing clear signs of soiling, however without professional cleaning, there is gradual accumulation of soil over time. In upholstered furniture, soil particles are worked into the surface, contributing to premature wear and permanent fabric damage. With leather, long term neglect can cause permanent discoloration and damage to the leather.

Not sure if your furniture needs cleaning? Ask our tech to test your upholstery using the vacuum test, or to test-clean an inconspicuous spot on your leather furniture.

Preparing for Your Cleaning

One or two days prior to your appointment, we will telephone you to confirm all of your details, including your cleaning address and your order. If you have any questions before then, please feel free to telephone us or contact us.

Before We Arrive:

1) Pre-Vacuum – furniture captures a lot of dust, dirt and hair. Much as you would vacuum or sweep a hard floor before mopping or cleaning, it is very important that your furniture is thoroughly pre vacuumed before we clean it. This can make a huge difference in cleaning results!

2) Preparing Your Space – please move all lamps, plants and breakables that might get in the way of access of all sides of the furniture before we arrive and make sure that the areas to be cleaned are clear of additional items (throw pillows & blankets, etc.).

On the Day of Cleaning:

1) Time – for morning appointments, we will telephone you between 7 and 8 AM to give you your two hour window of arrival between 8 AM and 1 PM. For afternoon appointments, we will telephone you between 10 AM and noon with your two hour window between 11 AM and 5 PM. If you will be away from home on that day and need 30 minutes or an hour notice to return, please let us know when we call to confirm your appointment.

2) Parking – we require legal, paved parking within 30 feet of the entrance of your home.

3) Payment – we accept debit and all major credit cards. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept personal cheques or cash.

Immediately After Cleaning:

Pay Attention to Drying

After cleaning your upholstered furniture will be slightly damp for up to 24 hours, depending on the temperature, air flow and humidity in your home. You can help speed up the drying process by keeping throw pillows or blankets off of damp furniture, running fans, including the summer fan on your furnace, opening windows (in summer) and keeping the area warm. If your furniture is not dry within a day, please contact us.

Spots & Stains

When stains have soaked thoroughly into upholstery, they often spread below the surface into the foam or batting, and cleaning can cause residues to “wick up”, causing stains to reappear or even appear larger after cleaning. If you have any concerns with reappearing stains, or any of the results of your cleaning, even after everything has dried, please telephone us.

Regular Maintenance –  Tips for Keeping Upholstery Looking Great

Vacuum thoroughly: Although it may not be obvious, dust and dirt settle into your upholstery from the air and every day use. Vacuuming your furniture thoroughly with the furniture attachment of your vacuum helps to keep your furniture looking great longer. How frequently you should vacuum is based on how must dust is in the home and how much the furniture is used.

Spot Clean: If you have a small spill or spot, clean it carefully and quickly, while it is still wet, following our stain guide. Use an absorbent material such as a cloth diaper or disposable diaper or feminine pad to absorb as much as possible. If there is a large volume of liquid, we recommend calling a professional, as it will be difficult to extract on your own. Visit our Stain Guide for at home spot and stain tips!

Get Your Furniture Treated with 3M Scotchgard™: Scotchgard™ helps fabrics resist soiling and makes cleaning up spots and spills easier. PLUS we make it easy for you to keep your furniture looking great, with our Scotchgard™ Guarantee: For 1 year from the date that we apply Scotchgard™ to your upholstery, we will return up to two times for FREE to treat spots and stains on the treated furniture items! 

Keep up the Cleaning: Your furniture should be professionally cleaned every 12-24 months in order to maintain your investment and keep it looking great for as long as possible. Cleaning your furniture regularly can prevent premature wear, improve appearance and prolong its life.

FAQs

Furniture Cleaning FAQs

Why should I choose professional upholstery cleaning?

Dust, dirt in the air and on clothing settle into upholstery and carpet. Regular use of furniture causes these almost invisible soil particles to penetrate deeper than a regular vacuum or personal steam cleaner can extract. Over time, soil particles degrade the fibres of your upholstery, causing permanent damage and decreased appearance.

My furniture has some removable covers – why not just put them in the washing machine?

Your washing machine & laundry detergent are not designed for properly cleaning the designer fabrics used for furniture. Zippered cusions are designed this way so that the foam or cushion can be replaced when it wears out, not so that the cover can be washed at home. Professional furniture cleaning provides a thorough clean without fading, shrinkage and damage to the shape or fabric. Furthermore, when you clean just the cushion covers the rest of the furniture will not match the clean cushions.

Will professional upholstery cleaning remove the protective coating applied when I bought my furniture?

Over time all fabric protectors lose effectiveness, with or without cleaning. If your furniture was purchased more than 2 years ago or is clearly showing signs of soiling, professional upholstery cleaning is recommended. Cleaning will remove what is left of the protectant that was applied when you bought your furniture. We are a certified applicator of 3M Scotchgard ™ Fabric Protector, the worlds leading fabric protection system.

Can you do anything to eliminate strong odours in my furniture?

In addition to Scotchgard ™ which is applied following your cleaning, we also offer Advanced Generation Deodorizer™, which is applied prior to the cleaning and works to disinfect the upholstery, remove odours and leave a pleasant light citrus scent. For biological stains and odours, we recommend application of an enzyme based product called Bio-Treat ™. Bio-Treat ™ is applied following your cleaning and the active formula works over the next 24 to 48 hours to actually digest any residual organic material and stains, improving the appearance and the smell.
