You may think you’ve been cleaning your home all along, but when you think about it, it still feels dirty or less-than-stellar looking. To give your home that wow factor it once had, consider cleaning your upholstery by a professional upholstery cleaner in Metro Detroit.
Dirt and bacteria cling to your armchairs, sofas, love seats, sectionals, and throw pillows. If you were to look under a microscope, dirt particles have sharp, jagged edges that cause wear and tear on the fibers of your upholstery. What once looked new and bright may now look dingy and worn. This is why regular upholstery cleaning by a professional is critical.
Check out these five things a professional upholstery cleaner in Michigan will look for when they visit your home.
1. Initial Inspection
First, the professional will take a look at the upholstery in question and determine what the material is. That’s because they treat different fibers with different methods. To clean the piece most effectively without ruining it, they have to know what they’re dealing with.
2. Color Sensitivity
Next, they’ll check your upholstery for color sensitivity. They will detect any inconsistencies in the color of fibers or fabrics. Discoloration often occurs when upholstery is positioned near a window where it gets exposed to the sun.
The professional will overturn furniture cushions to detect inconsistencies in fabric shades, along with wear marks on the chair back, cushion, and armrests. Attention to detail is key.
3. Abnormal Wear
Upholstery ages and wears down with time by dirt, stains, and sunshine. These things can all result in permanent stains or discoloration. Your upholstery cleaning professional will take note of any stains and spots originating from beverages, natural oils in the skin, or even rust around furniture hardware.
4. Hidden Problems
Next, they will check for wear patterns in the fabric texture, as well as any tearing of seams, broken zippers, or fiber damage such as rips. If the integrity of your upholstery has been compromised, your professional will be able to treat it without causing any further damage.
5. Soiled Areas
Lastly, they will look for soiled areas that they will need to pay more attention to. Then, they can begin cleaning your upholstery for an end result that will have you amazed at the difference.
