Our chosen professional will assess the type of stain and apply one of the specialist detergents. The team is always equipped with the suitable detergents and carry a range of products designed to get out the stains. Whether it is wine, nail polish, coffee or greasy food from last nights take away, we will deal with it. Please do take note that some stains are irreversible and we will make you aware of this prior to work commencement.
Hot Water Extraction
The soiled stains will typically be preconditioned and covered in an alkaline agent, followed by stimulation with a brush and left to work its magic. This is the most effective and professional method that our team is likely to use.
Although no actual steam is involved in this process, our professional machines will heat the water to anywhere between 50 – 120 degrees Celsius. The hot water and cleaning solution will remove any dirt or stains when coming in contact with your fabric leaving around 5% moisture which will quickly dry out on its own post treatment.
The agent will then be worked over several times to remove the alkaline solution and be treated with an acetic acid to lower and balance out the PH. Finally, the surface is dried and deodorised.
Dry Solvent Cleaning
This method does not require any water. The products used will attack the dirt on a microscopic level without damaging the fabric. The issue with using this method has a small risk of leaving some solvent behind which if left on its own can attract dirt. Our professionals, up on completion of solvent treatment, use a very powerful vacuum cleaner to prevent solvent from being left behind and attracting dirt.
Dry Foam Cleaning
This method enables our professionals to treat water sensitive materials, needle felt as well as other fabric types whose fibber prevent water extraction. It is a simple process when carried out by our professionals.
Dry cleaning foam is applied on the soiled surface and immediately vacuumed.
This process is not completely “Dry” as the dry foam consists of a small amount of water mixed with air.
With regular maintenance it is relatively simple to keep your leather upholstery clean.
