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.

My experience with Alberta carpet cleaning was exceptional. From the first phone call dealing with Jennifer who was extremely helpful personable and professional, she helped me set up two appointments and explain the process. Justin was the gentleman who came to do the carpets, He did try to upsell Without being pushy, even though I did not purchase any extras, I did appreciate him doing his job.
