Same day cleaning done right in your home.
We follow the the Standards of the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards for cleaning of upholstery and fabrics. Mike West has taught Upholstery and Fabric Cleaning for Certification for almost thirty years and this is reflected in our IICRC Certified Technicians. We do most of our cleaning “on-site” but can clean in our plant on difficult fabrics or whites.
Wet Cleaning – As you have no doubt found when doing your personal cleaning of fine clothes, "wet" or water based cleaning will always get them cleaner than “dry” or solvent based cleaning. The typical soil and spills on upholstery responds much better to wet cleaning. If we are dealing with "natural" fibers such as cotton, linen, or wool they would normally want to shrink. The reason we can use this system is the fact that the fabric is held in place on the frame of the item or in the case of cushions, at least in shape by the filling. We use special cleaners and tools to limit the wetness. Well over 90% of upholstery will respond best to wet cleaning and it dries within a few hours.
Hydra Care™ - This is our exclusive extraction process for cleaning upholstery and fabrics. After vacuuming the fabric is pretreated with a special neutral pH emulsifier and agitated with natural protein fiber brushes to separate any soil from the fibers. Then it is rinse extracted using extraction tools designed to work only with the surface material leaving interior fillings dry. No residue is left and the soil and emulsifier are completely rinsed away. This is far more effective than surface methods using foams or shampoos which are not rinsed and which leave both soil and soap in the fabric.
Dry Cleaning – Certain fabrics cannot be wet cleaned without unnecessary risk, usually of dye bleeding or texture change. For these we use a charged solvent system with vacuum extraction. This rinses through the fabric but tends to remove far less soil than a wet system.
Dry Care™ - Our system uses petroleum based odorless mineral spirits with a mild detergent charge. While the industry term is “odorless”, reality will tell you that there is a pronounced solvent odor. This will dissipate fairly quickly, but it will depend on good ventilation to completely evaporate.
