CLEAN UPHOLSTERY BRINGS A SPECIAL KIND OF COMFORT
Our furniture is an important part of our lives that often goes unnoticed. We don’t notice our hand stroking the fabric. We rest our cheek against a backrest without thinking about it. But just like all fabric in our lives, it gets dirty and a quick vacuum is not enough to clean it properly. And because we see it and use it every day, we don’t notice the dirt creeping in.
But once Master’s Touch Steam Cleaning has thoroughly cleaned a piece of furniture, you’ll certainly notice the difference. And you’ll suddenly see how it had looked when you first purchased it. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself feeling more comfortable and cozy using furniture that you had once thought of as aging. Because that is the power of a quality clean done with the industry’s best equipment.
THE 14 STEP UPHOLSTERY CLEANING PROCESS
STEP 1: PRE-INSPECTION
Before beginning the cleaning process, our technician will take time to inspect the job. This is a good time to talk to him about any concerns you might have. He can then tell you what results you can expect.
STEP 2: COMMERCIAL DRY VACUUM
Using our powerful vacuum equipment, our technician will remove all dust and other dry particles. This will eliminate dirt and get optimum performance from the steam cleaning process to come.
STEP 3: PROTECT FLOORS AND WORK AREAS
It is important to us to leave every place we enter, better than we arrived. We take care of your property while we clean. To achieve this we place any upholstered furniture being cleaned on heavy duty blankets. These catch overspray while we work.
STEP 4: PRE-SPOT
If there are any spots or marks that may require special attention, our technician will treat them first with a loosening agent. This will boost the cleaning power of the shampoo and steaming steps.
STEP 5: Pre-Spray Shampoo
Our specially formulated shampoo will then be applied to the upholstery. This will work to free up both dirt and organic matter from the fibers.
STEP 6: BRUSH AGITATION
Having the right tools for the job makes all the difference. Our agitator will gently work the fibers just enough to draw the shampoo in deep. It will also work with the shampoo to free and lift particles away from tight spots in the weave of fibers.
STEP 7: Shampoo Rinse Aid
Getting all of the shampoo residue back out is important. Doing this makes the fabric dry more easily, feel softer, and stops it from being tacky or attracting dirt. By applying a rinse aid at this stage, we ensure all of the shampoo will be easily removed.
STEP 8: Hot Steam Extraction
Just like it does for carpets, the hot steam we use gets deep into the fibers and flushes out the grime. Our powerful truck-mounted equipment delivers this steam at the most effective temperature. And the heavy duty suction pulls out all of the grime as well as the moisture.
STEP 9: POST SPOT OR STAIN INSPECTION
After the steam has extracted all of the dirt and grime that it could, our technician will inspect the upholstery with care. If he finds any marks or stains that have been stubborn enough to remain, he will focus his skills on the task of removing them.
STEP 10: PILLOW STEAM CLEANING
We know you won’t be comfortable unless your pillows for your furniture are just as clean as the furniture itself. That is why we include the pillow cleaning in the upfront costs. Your pillows will be cleaned with the same effective techniques as your upholstery.
STEP 11: REMOVE OVER-SPRAY PROTECTION
Now that there is no further chance of overspray coming in contact with your flooring or other surfaces, we remove the protective blanket placed earlier. Our Technician will also inspect the area. He will always clean up anything that may need attention as a result of his efforts.
STEP 12: SPEED DRY
Once the upholstery is clean and fresh, we’ll use a high-velocity fan to dry out any excess moisture quickly. A fast dry is important to retaining freshness. And it gets you back to using your furniture again quickly.
STEP 13: ODOR CONTROL TREATMENT
The causes of odors can be complex. But we know that most odors are from organic compounds. Instead of masking them with a perfume, Master’s Touch Steam Cleaning has a unique solution that breaks down the odor at the source. Our scientific formulation uses enzymes to break down the cause of the odor and continues to work long after we’ve finished.
STEP 14: POST INSPECTION
Once your upholstery has been brought back to peak condition, our technician will proudly show you his work. He will take time to lift pillows and point out how any difficult areas were addressed. This is a good time to talk to him about upholstery care and what protective treatment options are available.
