Upholstery Cleaning Services Reno NV
Upholstery Cleaning Services by Real Deal Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning
- Evaluating the condition of the upholstery – As with carpet cleaning it is important for our technicians to inspect the furniture closely, and determine if there is any damage, what kind of fabric it is, and if there are any stains that may be difficult to remove. Note that different fabrics require slightly different cleaning techniques. The price will vary dependent on the severity of soiling and the amount of time it will take to clean.
- Pre-Conditioning and extraction – Once we have educated our customers about what needs to be done, normally we will begin by applying our upholstery cleaner one section at a time, followed by agitation with a brush, and a thorough rinsing. The rinse restores a neutral ph level and water pressure is minimized to prevent over-saturation or the ever present possibility of browning.
- Brushing and Drying – As some fabrics require, quick brushing may be necessary directly after cleaning, to dry the fibers in the correct position. If the upholstery is cotton, an air mover will be used to dry the furniture rapidly. Usually the upholstery will take an hour or less to completely dry. You will be able to see a substantial difference as it dries.
- Final touches and Teflon protection When the technician is done with the cleaning, he/she will ask you to take a look at your furniture. We always want to make sure you’re happy. Then you will be asked if you would like us to apply our Teflon protectant, (find out more about our DuPont Teflon under our services) to prevent staining in the future. Although it is strongly suggested, it is not a required step.

Tips for Cleaning Upholstery
The furniture industry has developed codes for care tags so you can easily research how to clean upholstery when a spill occurs.
These tags are usually located hanging on the side of the furniture, or sometimes located under seat cushions.
Here are what the codes mean:
W: Clean the upholstery fabric with a water based detergent.
S: Clean the upholstery fabric with a water free product, such as dry cleaning solvent.
WS: You may clean the upholstery fabric with either a water based cleaner or a water free cleaner, depending on the type of stain. (This is the best type of upholstered furniture to purchase if you plan to remove your own stains.)
X: This upholstery fabric must be professionally cleaned. You should only vacuum and brush it — never use any type of upholstery cleaner on it yourself. (Unless you are extraordinarily rich, you really want to steer clear of buying furniture with this on the tag in the future.)
