Can Use Domestic Products To Clean Stains and Spots on My Couch?
It might be sufficient in some extremely rare cases, the truth is that domestic chemicals and solutions in your household can easily ruin your upholstery. We use professional cleaning solutions that have been tested and tried through a vigorous process before being made them available for PROFESSIONAL use. How would you feel if we arrived at your home with some Oxiclean, Downy, ammonia etc. Let’s add to some vinegar for a better result? These types of methods can agitate stains and spots and most importantly; these makeshift cleaning chemicals will not react well with proper cleaning agents leaving colored stains or discoloration. Also, you should understand that each specific type of fabric fibers requires the use of certain level of PH in the cleaning solution applied. If you apply a high PH level on certain type of fabrics you will just discolor the fibers and make your couch/sofa discolored and damaged.
Why Should I Choose Upholstery Cleaning NYC? Are Not All Carpet/Upholstery Cleaning Companies The Same?
Answer is simple! 95% of companies on the market clean upholstery with the same machines they use for carpets and rugs. We do not do that! Only upholstery cleaning machines and specialization. Only upholstery cleaning certified technicians who know how to handle each specific type of fabric your furniture has. Do not risk your upholstery to catch carpet moth and other carpet bugs after the use of same equipment.
