The best way to start is to vacuum your upholstery regularly. If  dust and dirt is allowed to sit on the upholstery too long it causes soiling. By not removing dust on a regularly it tends to mix with body oils embedding itself into the upholstery fibers.

Bright and pale colors usually get dirtier much faster than darker colors and will need to be cleaned more often.

An excellent cleaning aid is carpet and fabric protector, by applying fabric protection on new upholstery or upholstery that is clean and in good condition you’ll protect it from spills and dirt particles getting inside the upholstery fibers.

When fabric protector has been applied there is much higher chance of getting your upholstery back to it’s original condition.

Always use a good quality fabric cleaning product and make sure if you have a spill that you clean it up as soon as possible.

Never rub the fabric to clean it, always use a damp cloth and a blotting action to soak up the spills. Make sure you use a proper upholstery cleaner not general purpose household cleaners that could contain caustics or bleaches which could damage to your upholstered furniture.

Before using any cleaning products including upholstery cleaners, you should find an inconspicuous place and check the upholstery for color fastness and surface changes. Let it dry and check that no changes in color have occurred and that the upholstery is in good condition.

Be sure you check the manufacturers cleaning and care instructions before proceeding. 

Be sure to ask your Professional Carpet Care Specialist for “Carpet Shield” carpet and fabric protector.

     Today there are a wide range of carpets and area rugs sold.
Many would go for cheaper choices of standard carpets, made of synthetic materials. Some people choose standard carpeting because they think it being more durable than natural materials. That is not the case.
     Before buying your next standard wall-to-wall carpeting, consider a natural alternative for a better indoor environment.

     Natural area rugs and carpets are made of fibers from naturally renewable plants, or wool.  Environmentally friendly as well as to your health. They are biodegradable and naturally stain resistant. Natural area rugs and carpets can even purify your home’s air by trapping hazardous contaminants from the air.

     Most natural rugs and carpets are produced without using toxic chemicals.

So why would you have a professional clean your Tile and Grout  when you could simply use a mop in Granite Bay

Here’s why…

When using a mop you’re only cleaning the very top of the tiles, but remember you also spread dirty water over the tiles. Plus the tiles are porous, meaning they absorb the dirty water that your mop spreads around.

Having a professional to clean your tile and grout in your home twice a year will make a huge difference of your beautiful tile floors.

Specialized tile and grout cleaning equipment used by professionals actually uses high pressure and suction to blast hot water into the tiles and grout area, forcing the dirt out of the porous stone and blasting the dirt out…something a mop could never do. 

Next time you need to get out your mop and bucket, give yourself a break and call your local Professional Tile and Grout Cleaner.

Micro-fiber sofas and chairs have great things about them. Microfiber fabrics are stain-resistant and relatively easy to maintain. The type of material that comprise the microfiber fabric mostly are a kind of polyester that may leave no lint or dust after cleaning. Microfibers are very small strands of material that can be knitted or woven together, or made into non-woven fabrics. Microfiber fabrics are made from synthetic materials such as polyester or nylon, or a combination of both. Microfiber is lightweight, highly absorbent and does not stain or wrinkle easily. Microfiber fabrics that are electrostatically charged and can pick up small particles, such as dust, without the use of cleaning solvents, and leaves no lint behind. Microfiber fabrics should be washed in solutions that are free of oils, soaps and fabric softeners, since the fabric can soak up these additives, causing it to retain odors. This is where your hometown Professional Upholstery Cleaning Technician can be of help.

Haitian cotton is a fabric with its own cleaning process. Haitian cotton is an upholstery fabric made from 100% cotton, grown in Haiti or India. The fibers are not thoroughly processed, leaving bits of cotton seeds stems and other plant components in the yarn. Theses specks of brown give the fabric its natural and rustic appearance. The yarns are thick, coarse and usually white, cream, or tan in color. Occasionally, they are dyed with colors such as red or blue or may be two toned. Haitian cotton fabrics are very susceptible to browning. In fact the spillage of plain tap water is enough to produce a brown discoloration. They cannot be dry cleaned because of the latex backing used, which dissolves under dry cleaning solvents. Since it cannot be wet or dry cleaned, a process was specifically designed to clean this fabric. It is very effective and completely safe. Ask your local Professional Upholstery Cleaner for a quote on your Haitian cotton cleaning today.
