Upholstery Cleaning

upholstery cleaningSpectrum cleaning professionals are trained to safely and properly clean and remove odors from the various types of fabrics used on upholstery, including leather cleaning and microfiber cleaning. Office chairs, sofas, loveseats, sectional couches, dining room chairs – no matter what kind of furniture cleaning you need – we can clean it.

Below is the basic process we follow when cleaning upholstery:

  • Step 1- Assessment
    This allows us to identify concerns and set clear expectations prior to cleaning.
  • Step 2 – Dry Soil Removal
    This is one of the most important part of the cleaning process. Pre-vacuum all surfaces to be cleaned using CRI certified commercial-grade canister vacuums equipped with HEPA filters. This prepares the upholstery fabric for preconditioning and hot water extraction cleaning.
  • Step 3 – Application of a pre-conditioner
    Application of pre-conditioner spray to break down down soiling or sticky substances left behind by spills, food, body oils, etc.
  • Step 4 – Agitation (as needed)
    Agitate soiled areas with a small upholstery rake or brush. This helps increase the effectiveness of the pre-conditioner that has been applied.
  • Step 5 – Hot Water Extraction
    Clean the upholstery using a hot water extraction system (either a truckmount or a portable cleaning system). Some fabrics require cold water, in those cases heat is not utilized.  We use special upholstery tools to ensure the appropriate volume of water is utilized. A rinsing agent is also used in the cleaning process to make sure the pH balance of the fabric is returned to neutral.
  • Step 6 – Apply Fabric Protector
    Hot water extraction cleaning removes the original protector (i.e. Scotchgard) from the fabric, therefore it is highly recommended to reapply protector after cleaning. This helps the fabrics to be much more resistant to spills or stains, and easier to clean in the future.
  • Step 7 – Final Grooming
    Periodically we use a special brush to “groom” the upholstery. This helps to evenly work in the fabric protector while evening out the fibers so that the overall appearance is consistent.
  • Step 8 – Post-Cleaning Inspection
    Final walkthrough of cleaned upholstery items to ensure the client is pleased with the outcome.

From Our Customers

See what some of our clients have said about our great team!

Spectrum’s response was immediate and thorough as they came alongside of our personnel and were diligent in cleanup activities which helped to restore our food facility to safe operation within 3 days. Their personnel worked around the clock to ensure that the necessary activities occurred and they provided constant progress updates to our leadership until the tasks were complete.

Terry E., VP of Operations

[Spectrum] crews came and cleaned several thousand square feet of carpeting in our meeting rooms, hallways, and office area. We were very impressed with the work that they did. They were prompt and responsive to our needs. Their staff was courteous and professional. They were careful in their work and we appreciated their sensitivity to our staff and operation.

Jay C., CEO

The morning the pipe burst in the Children’s Museum, Spectrum was on the scene within an hour of being called. . . . Each and every person who we worked with demonstrated a calm and professional manner that was exceptional during a period of such loss and adjustment for the Museum staff. . . . I couldn’t imagine a better group of people to work with through a situation like this.

Kimberly S., Director of Exhibits and Operations

The clean up team was courteous and worked so neatly, swiftly, efficiently.  In the midst of a “sorry” situation, their cheerfulness and compassion for (name deleted) residents was endearing.  An impressive company indeed.

Spectrum cleaned after a wine spill on our light tan colored carpet. They did a phenomenal job! The techs were friendly and efficient. They got the stain out completely and the rest of our carpets, and our furniture, look fantastic! I would highly recommend Spectrum!
