Friday's Ask the Experts: Upholstery cleaning methods
June 3, 2011
Friday''s Ask the Experts question from a cleaning professional on the International Custodial Advisors Network (ICAN) "Ask the Experts" page: What method of cleaning is recommended to clean sofas, chairs and loveseats? What is the going price to charge for these services?
Probably the two most popular methods for commercial upholstery cleaning are hot water extraction and shampoo.
Heavily soiled upholstery may require a pre-conditioning pre-scrub prior to extraction plus an absorbent towel/acidic treatment to help it dry after cleaning.
