Furniture Regular Maintenance

Maintaining Furniture Between Cleanings

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 Professional Fabric Protector: Fabric Protector 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 Protection Guarantee: For 1 year from the date that we apply Fabric Protector 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.

What Our Customers Have To Say

I recently had the pleasure of using Alberta Carpet Cleaning for their furnace and carpet cleaning services, and I am satisfied with the results. From start to finish, their service was professional, efficient, and delivered exceptional outcomes. The team arrived promptly at the scheduled time, and their friendliness immediately put me at ease. They took the time to assess the condition of my furnace and carpets and explain the cleaning process, ensuring I was comfortable with the service they were about to provide. The technicians were careful in their work, paying special attention to high-traffic areas and stubborn stains. The pricing was fair and transparent, with no hidden fees or surprises.

My couch looks better than when I got it! It smells good, looks good and my technician, Jerrod B, completely understood why I wanted to salvage my couch. He explained the guarantee, told me the after care, ensured everyone in the home was aware of the hoses and cords so no one tripped. The best part about this service was Jerrod, he commented on how nice the couch was, and on the Lego I had in my living room. He was absolutely pleasant to my 8 year old sister, and the pets in the home. He was so nice and friendly to chat to, it was a shame he left! Once he was done, I looked at the couch and he said he was happy how it turned out, and the he tried his best to get it cleaned up ( cat urine is extremely difficult ) overall, if I could give a higher rating I would, the technician was great, thoroughly knowledgable, and early! The couch is better than when I bought it, and I will use their services again if I ever need it. Thank you for saving my couch Jerrod!!!

I had paid for a different company to come in and do my carpets, and there wasn't much difference at all. Then I tried Alberta Carpet Cleaning, and all the stains and odors Etc were gone. The carpet looks very, very good now, so we do not have to put in laminate. Oops, I meant to mention the gentleman who did the carpets Jason G. was fantastic , he was friendly and funny and went beyond the customer's expectations by far . I will definitely go with these guys again next time I need carpets done! Thanks again! :) Kate
