Beer Stain - Upholstery Cleaning NYC
Beer is often a very difficult stain to remove on certain fabrics because of its high yeast content. In certain situations yellowing or browning can occur if the fabric is cotton.
The best way to avoid beer stain issues on your upholstery is to get the beer in your mouth and not your couch J
But in all seriousness, we know how cramped some NYC apartments can be, and if you are hosting friends for a get together the inevitable will surely happen sooner or later. If you or one of your friends happens to fumble their alcoholic beverage during your shin dig, the first thing you should do is eject said drink dropper from the party and then grab a white rag or towel and try and blot/soak up as much of the beverage as possible.
It is best to attempt to remove the stain yourself as using the wrong products or improper cleaning techniques can potentially make the stain look worse or even permanently set it into the fabric.
Once all the dust has settled and the party is over, you are encouraged to call a professional sofa cleaning service to help you with the stain.
At PureGreen, our upholstery cleaning nyc technicians are fully equipped and knowledgeable in handling beer…stains that is..
More often than not we can remove the stain and odor from the fabric 100%. If we feel that the stain is too severe to guarantee results, we will let you know before we begin what you should expect from a cleaning.
Below is an example of a customer we had recently who sublet her apartment in NYC to someone who obviously did not get back their security deposit at the end of their stay. This stain was particularly difficult because it was on a white cotton fabric which does not respond well to heavy moisture. The stain was sitting on the fabric for about a month but the good thing was that the customer did not attempt to remove the stain themselves.
Our upholstery cleaning specialist was able to completely remove the stain and save our customer a pretty penny from having to get the sofa re-upholstered which would have been the last resort. As always we only use the best green labeled products available to our industry which means no harmful chemicals and no sticky residue left behind.
