GO THROUGH OUR UPHOLSTERY CLEANING OPERATIONAL PROCEDURE AND MAKE IT EASY TO CLEAN YOUR UPHOLSTERY
STEP 1: PRE VACUUM
All upholstered surfaces are vacuumed with a wet & dry vacuum cleaner using a crevice tool
and upholstery nozzle as appropriate. Working deep into creases, crevices and folds all loose
dirt dust and fluff are removed.
STEP 2: STAIN REMOVAL
All marks on the upholstery are tested with spot cleaner to see if spillages are spots or
stains. Stains are pre-treated with a colloid stain removing agent (Total Elim 1:20) to
minimise the amount of moisture available for absorption by the filling. The Total Elim is left
for several minutes to work on loosening the stains prior to being absorbed with clean white
cloths. The remaining Total Elim is vacuumed out to ensure complete stain removal.
Room windows are opened to aid air movement, which speeds drying times.
STEP 3: CLEANING SOLUTION
A broad based ionised cleaning solution is applied with a Tri-jet fogger. Fogging ensures that
cleaning solutions are applied in correct concentrations to the fabric surface without wetting
the padding or stuffing in the upholstery. The tub chair and the sofa bed are fogged
separately. 2-5 minutes is allowed for the cleaning action to occur.
STEP 4: EXTRACTION CLEANING
An upholstery mitten is immersed for 2 minutes in an opposite polarity hot solution milked as
dry as possible and then the fabric is wiped with a vigorous action to remove the dirt from the
fibres. Magnetic attraction attracts the dirt onto the pad leaving the upholstery clean. Mitts are
rinsed and the cleaning action repeated as necessary. A separate bucket of plain water is
used when cleaning dirty or nicotined fabrics.
STEP 5: SECONDARY EXTRACTION
All upholstery is then vacuumed with the wet & dry vacuum cleaner, with as many passes as
necessary to remove the moisture absorbed by the cover material and filling during cleaning.
STEP 6: GROOMING
Appropriate fibres are groomed with the upholstery grooming tools.
STEP 7: DEODORISE AND SANITISE
A dual sanitiser and deodoriser is fogged for approx. 5 seconds across the cleaned
upholstery to kill any residual bacteria that might breed in the damp upholstery. It also
imparts a pleasant slow release smell
