Furniture and Upholstery Cleaning
Furniture is usually a big investment we all make in our homes in terms of both money and time- choosing the perfect armchair or most comfortable sofa, not to mention picking through the endless colour options and materials. We all invest money with an open heart but when it comes to the maintenance and cleaning of the items we once deliberated hours over choosing, we can fall short! Whether you have children or pets, frequently host family and friends, or are simply at home a lot, you know your upholstery is constantly getting a workout. Allergens and contaminants such as dust, pollen, food crumbs and stains are all unavoidable, no matter how careful you may be. In fact, up to 80% of the dust and dirt brought into your home could end up in your upholstered fabrics and furniture. But you don’t have to live with it! Our domestic upholstery cleaning team can revitalise any dirty or stained home furnishings, giving even the most world-weary upholstery a new lease of life!
Upholstery cleaning extends the life of your furniture and, with our system, is safe and nontoxic to children and pets. One of our professional domestic upholstery cleaning technicians can refresh and clean your upholstery, rejuvenating your furniture. Once our upholstery cleaning process is complete, your furniture will usually be dry within a few hours or so, this means it is ready to be used by you and your family again normally within the same day.
Tested and Proven Results
Our cleaning system has been independently proven to remove on average over 98% of common household allergens from upholstery. The allergens tested were some of the most common found in households. These included dog and cat dander and dust mite allergen. Used alongside our upholstery-safe sanitising products, we can remove up to 89% of airborne bacteria in the home, improving indoor air quality.
Clean Upholstery The Natural® Way
Although there are many options out there when you decide to hire a professional upholstery cleaner, you may be concerned (and should be!) about the use of soaps or harsh chemicals. You can find many of these in solutions used by other upholstery cleaners but they can leave a sticky residue and could be harmful to children and pets. Choosing Northern Cleaning Solutions for your next upholstery clean will relieve you of this worry! We use only our own patented domestic upholstery cleaning solution which is green-certified, eco-friendly and carbonated. This ensures your upholstery gets the deepest, most thorough clean. Thanks to the carbonation of our solution, dirt and dust is brought up from deep within the upholstery fibres to then be whisked away by one of our high-powered vacuums. Using this method, we ensure that our upholstery cleaning is safe for your entire family, your furniture dries in the fast times possible and the upholstery is left resoil-resistant.
Carbonated Cleaning system
The action of our carbonated system is best considered akin to the action of a fizzy drink which raises a drinking straw to the surface of a glass. The millions of tiny bubbles in our upholstery cleaner get to work, breaking down particles of dirt and grime even trapped deep within the fibres of your upholstery, and lifting them to the surface for extraction. This solution, in the hands of one of our certified upholstery cleaners, can achieve truly remarkable results.
Thinking about how much use the average sofa or chair gets, spills are inevitable. We at Northern Cleaning Solutions have realised this and offer many different stain guard options that can be applied to almost any type of upholstery. Applying Protectant to your furniture to create a barrier around the fibres will help resist staining. This works by repelling water and the stain, giving you the opportunity to wipe it up before the stain sets in deep. Thus, your upholstery stays cleaner for longer and maintains that just-cleaned look in between professional cleans.
No Matter the Material
Whether your sofa is suede, leather, denim or any natural or synthetic fibre, our furniture cleaning services can safely and effectively handle any job. Certain items, such as leather sofas, require regular cleaning and maintenance. With leather being a natural product, it requires feeding to avoid cracking and damage. Our technicians use only specially developed products to restore your leather back to its former glory and can offer advice on how to maximise the longevity of these results.
Sanitizer and Deodoriser to Reduce Allergens and Bacteria
Does anyone in your home suffer from allergies or asthma, meaning you are concerned about allergens and air quality? Do you have children, or even pets, who love nothing more than to play on the carpets in your home, leaving you worried about bacteria? Upholstered items can offer enormous advantages when it comes to air quality control, acting as giant filters within your home. Common allergens and germs can be gathered and absorbed by soft furnishings, improving air quality. But, just like an air filter, upholstery can become full over time and must be thoroughly cleaned to ensure maximum efficacy for trapping particulates as they fall from the air. Our upholstery cleaning services have been tested by an independent air quality laboratory and proven effective at removing an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from the upholstery we clean. And when we use a specialist sanitiser, developed for upholstery, up to 85% of the bacteria in the air and around 82% of the bacteria from upholstery can be removed, leaving your upholstery clean and air quality healthy, ensuring a safer environment for your family. Any home can benefit from this service, but it is essential for any household with pets!
Stain Prevention Tips between cleans
Upholstered furniture is usually one of the first places that dirt & stains build up! Not only is it used frequently, but upholstery is also porous, meaning that spills and dirt can easily penetrate the fabric. In order to keep your upholstery clean and stain-free in between professional cleaning sessions, follow these tips:
– Use upholstery protectors, like Scotchgard or upholstery shields. These will help prevent spills and dirt from becoming embedded in your upholstery fabric.
– Vacuum your furniture regularly, using a brush attachment so that dust and debris don’t settle on the upholstery.
– Blot up spills quickly with a clean, dry cloth to prevent stains from setting in. Just make sure you Didn’t rub the stain in!
– Avoid eating and drinking on upholstered furniture. Easier said than done – we know…
By following these simple tips, you can help keep your upholstery looking its best between cleaning appointments. However, if you want the very best upholstery cleaning results, hiring a professional cleaning team like ours is the way to go!
How long does it take furniture to dry after a clean?
The furniture cleaning process usually takes about an hour, depending on the size of your furniture and the level of dirt and staining. After a professional upholstery cleaning session, it normally takes up to six hours for your furniture to dry completely. During that time, you should keep pets and children away from upholstered furniture as they can easily damage the upholstery while it is still wet. You should also open up windows and doors to speed up the drying process. Get as much air flowing through the room as you can do (weather permitting of course).
How often should you get your upholstery cleaned?
Ideally, upholstery should be professionally cleaned every 12-18 months. However, if you have pets or small children, you’ll probably need to clean upholstered furniture more often. Regular cleaning can help extend the life of your upholstered furniture and keep it looking beautiful for years to come.
When you hire a professional upholstery cleaner, you can trust that your upholstered furniture will be cleaned expertly and safely. With up-to-date techniques and specialised equipment, your upholstery will get the deep clean it deserves – leaving you with fresh, stain-free furniture!
