Sofa Cleaning NYC

Many times, people often neglect to clean their sofas and upholstery. Upholstery cleaning in NYC is one of our most sought after services and one that we gladly perform.

Just like your carpets, upholstery is highly susceptible to soil. Think about how much time you spend on your upholstery. We are constantly shedding dead skin cells, body oil, hair and so on.

These things need to be flushed out of your fabrics with a deep hot water extraction cleaning. Often times our customers are amazed at the difference in appearance after a sofa cleaning and cannot believe what state their upholstery was!

Cleaning upholstery will help with your allergies and create a healthier/more livable environment for you and your family and extend the life of the sofa by years!

There are several different types of fabrics that your sofa can be constructed of. We cater the correct cleaning process and solutions towards your specific sofa. Our technicians are skilled in cleaning microfiber, cotton, wool, silk, polyester, and everything in between.

High Traffic Lanes

Regular upkeep of your carpets is essential if you want to make them last. Often times the dirtiest areas in a home will be the hallways because these are considered high traffic lanes.

Carpet Cleaning should be done at least once a year in order to avoid excessive wear and tear on your traffic lanes. A neglected high traffic lane can look rather unsightly if not maintained properly. Regular vacuuming every day is essential and hiring a professional carpet cleaning company once a year should keep your traffic lanes looking neat and fresh all year round.

Below is an example of a high traffic lane we cleaned recently. This customer let the traffic lanes build up for too long and ended up with highly visible marks on the carpet. Our Staten Island Carpet Cleaning technicians explained to the customer that since the carpet has been neglected for so long that achieving "like new" results will not be possible but we will do our best.

The end result was a far cleaner carpet and the customer was super happy, but the effects of excessive wear and tear on the carpet will always be visible no matter how much you clean it.

Deep Cleaning Area Rugs

Many people are unaware or uneducated on the proper methods of cleaning area rugs. In order to provide a thorough cleaning and flushing of an area rug, the rug must be taken out to a rug cleaning facility that has the knowledge and expertise in handling exotic rugs.

Cleaning an area rug in your home is not the right way to do it. This is more of a surface cleaning and can result in several problems. Firstly, the rug is not being washed thoroughly. Because it is virtually impossible to soak the rug in your home, many toxins, dust, allergens, odors and bacteria are being left behind after the cleaning.

Secondly, cleaning rugs in your home means you have to deal with a wet rug. Most area rugs are made of wool, which is a very absorbent fiber. Wool retains a natural moisture content and will act as a sponge to any water that is applied to it. Not getting it dry quickly can result in mildew/odor problems for your rug.

Lastly, cleaning an exotic rug in your home means you are taking a huge risk. Rugs are very delicate items made from natural fibers and dyes which can become damaged if not using the correct protective procedures during the cleaning process.

We recommend using our safe and thorough deep cleaning approach when it is time to clean your area rugs. Below is a video we made that shows are entire cleaning process in detail. Next time you need your area rugs cleaned in New York give us a call and we will provide you with a free inspection!
