Cleaning furniture upholstery can be performed using different techniques and technologies. There is the wet extraction method also known as hot water extraction or steam cleaning. With this method, a fine mist of special detergent water is sprayed on the surface and immediately vacuumed along with the soil and other contaminants.
Another way of cleaning upholstery is by a dry cleaning technique. The furniture is first pre-vacuumed. Then an absorbent powder compound is applied that breaks down the contaminants. After a prescribed amount of time, the material is again vacuumed thoroughly. The advantage of dry cleaning is that there is no need for drying time unlike the wet extraction method.
The fastest and simplest way to clean upholstery is by directly vacuuming your furniture. It is also considered safe since you are not using additional cleaning agents that may adversely affect the fabric of your upholstery. Maintenance vacuuming should be done as often as possible. Professional upholstery cleaning should also be scheduled as often as may be needed.
