Mr Steam’s 12 Step Upholstery Cleaning Process
Step 1: Pre-Inspection
Our technician will perform special tests to determine the content of your fabric. The content will determine what type of cleaning solutions and techniques will be used. In addition, we will point out any potential permanent stains or areas of concern. We will give you an evaluation of expected results.
Step 2: Area Preparation/Floor Protection
We will prepare the area where the upholstery will be cleaned to protect your surrounding furnishings.
Step 3: Pre-Vacuum
All textiles should be vacuumed thoroughly before cleaning. This step will remove dry soils and any loose particles from cracks and crevices.
Step 4: Pre-Treat
Depending on your fabric, a special solution designed for your fabric type and the soiling condition will be applied to “emulsify” the soil.
Step 5: Pre-Treat
Any potentially difficult spots will be pre-treated with special solutions to increase chances of removal.
Step 6: Pre-Groom
The fabric will then be gently groomed using soft upholstery brushes to loosen the soil.
Step 7: Soil Extraction and Rinse
The soil is then extracted from the fabric with a gentle, controlled rinse.
Step 8: Neutralize
The fabric is then pH balanced to maintain its soft, fresh feel.
Step 9: Post-Spot Treatment
Any remaining spots will be treated with special stain removal products.
*For longer fabric life and fewer permanent stains, have Upholstery Protector applied!!
Step 10: Post-Groom
The fabric will then be prepared for drying with a gentle combing of the fabric.
Step 11: Speed Dry
High velocity air movers will be placed on the upholstery to speed dry the fabric.
Step 12: Post Cleaning Inspection
Our technician will review the cleaning results with you to insure that your expectations have been met or exceeded.
