When commercial upholstery is stained, it can be hard to know where to start. No matter the stain–be it from food or drink spills, pet accidents, or wear and tear–it’s important to act fast for best results. But tackling furniture stains isn’t always easy; you’ll need the right tools and approach if you want to get rid of them.
One step of the cleaning process involves pre-treatment. This means applying a product that breaks down the molecules of the stain so that they are easier to remove. Different types of treatments work better on different kinds of stains, and some fabrics may require special care before any products are applied. It’s also important to use the right amount of pressure when blotting out the stain; too much could damage the fabric, while too little won’t do the job.
Finally, once the pre-treatments have been applied, it’s time to get started with the actual cleaning. Depending on the type of material being cleaned, dry-cleaning or steam-cleaning might be necessary. Again, the key here is to find the right balance between using enough cleaning power to remove the stain, but not so much that it damages the fabric. Choosing an experienced professional who understands the intricacies of commercial upholstery cleaning is essential in this regard.
In sum, it takes more than just water and a cloth to effectively tackle furniture stains in commercial upholstery. With the right expertise and supplies, however, those unsightly blemishes can be gone in no time.
