Seats can get very dirty over time, especially if they haven’t been cleaned in some time. This is where you ask the help of a professional seat cleaning company that understands what sort of cleaning solution to use on the many different types of materials. It is the best way to get the most out your lounge suite.
Seat Steam Cleaning
Seat steam cleaning is the most popular way to clean seats or sofas. It works very well, but there are some materials in which a wet clean or shampoo is not recommended. The only other way to clean these fabrics is with a seat dry cleaning method. A cleaning solution is applied to the seat, then it is agitated with a machine with brushes. This agitation makes the solution activate. The solution absorbs the dirt and is then removed using an absorbent cleaning cloth.
A professional carpet cleaner will firstly do a test piece somewhere out of sight on the fabric. This tells the technician what type of clean to do and also what sort of cleaning products can be used.
Deodorisers and Sanitisers
When cleaning seats with a steam cleaning machine, they should never be left to wet. It can lead to stretching and this can’t be reversed. A professional is the best person to steam clean seats. During the cleaning process, deodorisers and sanitisers can also be used. This will help eliminate any bacteria within the fabric.
The main problems cleaning companies have with seats is the removal of sweat stains. This has to be removed using solvents. The solvent base cleaner is applied to the surface of the seats and left to sit for a while. Then a shampoo is applied and then steam cleaned off. Any solvent-based cleaning solution must be thoroughly rinsed or it can lead to more stains that may become permanent.
The picture below shows a seat that has been cleaned. It was previously heavily soiled in sweat. A solvent-based product was used, then a shampoo. The products were removed using a truck mounted steam cleaning machine. When a seat is as bad as this one, the only way to properly clean it is with a truck mounted machine. These machines get reach a temperatures of 160 degrees. It’s this heat, along with the cleaning solutions, that helps to remove the stains.
