Upholstery Cleaning in Gold Coast
When upholstery cleaning Gold Coast Company cleans fabric seats, they will firstly do a test piece to ensure that damage isn’t cause by not just the steam but also the cleaning product used. It is very important to do a test piece on the back of any lounge suite before applying any cleaning agents. Some fabrics are not colour fast and may run as a result of applying the wrong product. Most materials these days are ok to steam clean, but there are a few that need a cleaning solution with a lower pH level to ensure no damage is caused. This why it’s important to have a trained professional upholstery cleaning Brisbane company carry out any steam cleaning of fabric seats.
Also when upholstery cleaning, the fabric should not be left to wet at the end of the job, this can cause shrinkage or stretching of the fabric and even leave water marks.
Importance of Using the Right Cleaning Solution and Process
When carpet cleaning a test piece is still advisable as some fibre types can react to some cleaning solutions, this is very important when a carpet steam cleaner Sunshine Coast company has a wool carpet to clean. Wool carpets need to be cleaned with a good quality well maintained machine; this will prevent over wetting the carpet and reduce the risk of browning.
If a wool carpet has been over wet and browning of the fibres has occurred, then a browning treatment is required, this will bring the carpet back to its original colour, if it hasn’t been left for too long.
The cleaning solution to be used would depend on the fibre type of the carpet to be cleaned, and the setup of the machine. A quality carpet cleaning Ipswich Company would also deodorise and sanitise the carpets at the same time as the cleaning process; this ensures a full penetration of the products into the carpet fibres.
If the carpet steam cleaning process doesn’t get down to the base of the carpet fibres, residual dirt can be left behind, this will not only mean bacteria is still in the carpet but it will also resoil faster, meaning the carpet would look dirty again within a couple of weeks. This is why it is so important to use a professional carpet cleaning Sunshine Coast Company that would allow enough time between jobs during the day, so they are not rushing through each job. If a carpet clean has been rushed it can only mean one thing, it hasn’t been cleaned properly.
