Upholstery Cleaning Gold CoastCleaning Upholstery
Upholstery Cleaning Gold Coast or better known as Stain Solutions Gold Coast would like to share some upholstery cleaning tips with you.
What is known as a couch, lounge suite or sofa is one of the most used furniture pieces in your home. I’m sure you have has a little sleep on it, even used it as a dining table and ate some food on it. If you own a pet there is little doubt it has been on it as well. Then there’s the kids. he lounge suite has likely been used as a playground for children.
All these activities leave lots and lots of stains, dirt, dust mites, and bacteria on the upholstery. As you read this post, take a good hard look on your couch upholstery and gith honest with yourself. Does it need a good clean. Even if there are no stains because you live alone ad without pets, unless you are vacuuming the upholstey regularly there is dust settling into the fabric. This can cause allergies and would lead to dust mites and dead skin cells in the fabric. Both these are the food for bed bugs. You don’t want that!
The professional upholstery cleaning process to your upholstery is beneficial to the lounge suite, sofa, couch or whatever you want to call it. Stain Solutions Gold Coast are the experts when it comes to upholstery cleaning. We will take care of your couch fabric also while cleaning. The padding of the couch damages after some time, and can make your upholstery look dull and dirty. You will be able to simply clean your couch upholstery.
3 Different Ways for Cleaning A Couch Upholstery
1. Check The Code Before Cleaning
The very first thing you need to do is take a look at before cleaning is to verify the code mentioned on the corners of your upholstery. Not all lounge suites have this, if so the code is below. If not they will show recommendations for cleaning care.
The code is indicated in the lowercase. For example:
- Code “W” is for a wash with water only.
- Code “S” is for a wash with a water-free solvent to remove dirt, soil, and stain.
- Also, code “W/S” indicates that the fabric of your upholstery can be washed with water-based as well as solvent-based products.
- Moreover, code “X” indicates that you should always ask professionals to clean your couch upholstery rather than trying yourself at home.
2. Use Dishwashing Liquid, Warm Water and Baking Soda
Leave the various solvents that are available to the experts and use this formula. There are no guarantees as there are different types of fabrics, however if you are attending to the stain straight away there’s a high liklihood the stain will go. If not a professional can treat the problem and you have caused no permanent damage.
This process will allow you to extract the stains and dirt without harming your couch upholstery.
- Use dishwashing liquid which does not contain a lot of chemicals.
- Mix baking soda in warm water. This solution can easily remove the stain because of the warmness in it. Moreover, it also helps to remove the color dullness of your upholstery.
3. Blot Moisture and Remove Solid Debris
The liquid stain spread on your upholstery must be blotted as soon as possible with paper towels or a white terry towel. In th case of solid stains such as mayonnaise and cheese, these must be picked up with the help of a blunt knife. You should never rub such an area because it will deepen the stain inside the fabric of your couch upholstery and cause damage to the fabric.

So Who To Choose?
If the technician isn’t certified then it tells me they don’t consider the best outcome is #1 priority. So for this reason I say engage in a certified technician. The importance of this can never be over emphasised. Always consider a company that is IICRC Certified. You would always consider a company that has Insurance. If they haven’t been Police Checked, is it worth having just anyone in your home? Be sure also that they are qualified to do the job. Following these points will more than likely result in successful outcomes
Why Engage in a Certified Technician
- Stain Solutions Carpet Cleaning Gold Coast technicians have done courses at a training school plus we do internal training.
- Stain Solutions is a IICRC Certified Company. Stain Solutions technicians are trained to clean to the IICRC Standard
- Stain Solutions Carpet Cleaning Gold Coast technicians insure against their work
- Stain Solutions Carpet Cleaning Gold Coast Police Check all technicians
CHEAP IN MOST CASES IS NOT GOOD
At Stain Soliutions Carpet Cleaning Gold Coast, too many times we hear of people opting for the cheapest alternative and as a result get a clean beyond whats considered a good clean. It’s always tempting to go down this path, particularly if you are unsure what to look out for when choosing ANY tradesperson. I am a strong believer that cheap is not good. Like buying a product, you get what you pay for. To avoid disappointment, use my tips on Who To Choose above.
Professional Upholstery Cleaning is what Stain Solutions Gold Coast believes in. Stain Solutions Gold Coast should always be your #1 choice because when the time arrives, should you clean your Upholstery yourself?
Unfortunately many make the mistake of thinking they can clean their own carpets and because of this they never get a professional result.
You’ve spent a fortune on your beautiful Upholstery. Therefore it makes sense to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations and follow maintenance measures, like spot cleaning and regular vacuuming.
Then, you realise your upholstery needs to have a proper clean. Because the upholstery starts looking dull and the once fresh smell from new has gone you know it’s time to get professional help.
So, one thing NOT to do is go to the local hardware or supermarket and hire a carpet cleaning machine. As a professional upholstery cleaning company we can assure you this is a bad choice. Therefore seek to have it done by a Professional Upholstery Cleaning Company.
Until things go wrong, it will always appear to be cheaper doing it yourself rather than using a professional carpet cleaner. For too many people, it looks like an easy job. I mean to say “who can’t put water in a machine with shampoo and start cleaning”. If it was as simple as that then yes, anyone can.
Nothing can go wrong, right? WRONG! Oh oh, things have gone bad.
The next section of this article I will explain why you never really save money. Above all I will talk through how easy it is for things to go wrong. That beautiful upholstery in your home now looks secondary. Not to mention the associated health risks that goes with Upholstery that is not cleaned well could carry excess water.
Truck Mount Preferred Option
The best method is Steam Cleaning using a Truck Mount. Now you’re not going to get a truck mount machine in the back of your car. It’s highly likely you won’t even get a portable carpet cleaning machine in your car!.
So the machine you hire is really probably equivalent to a carpet cleaner from your retailer. Not always but in most cases yes.
Therefore many things play part in successfully cleaning your upholstery.
Without good suction, unless you make several dry passes you are really running a HUGE risk of overwetting the upholstery. At a minimum standard, you will only accept the power of a portable as it will have 2 motors. However, a truck mount is a totally different beast. A good truck mount and a good operator will leave your upholstery drier and cleaner hands down! What else can go wrong during this process? Well, the dirt is going to stay embedded in the padding as there’s not enough power to draw it up.
The water used can only be as hot as the hot water system can produce on the property. In most states, the temperature is regulated and will not be anywhere near the heat of a Truck Mount. So what does this mean?
As professional Upholstery cleaning truck mount machines operate at far higher temperatures and pressures it is impossible to produce the same result. The boiling hot water will enable far greater soil extraction.
The Professional Carpet Cleaning Company has access to specially formulated shampoos not available to the public. Stain Solutions Gold Coast uses formulated shampoos that are Bio Degreadeable and with some of the Shampoos Allergy free!.
You can’t just use any shampoo. There are shampoos for different fibres of the carpet and for different conditions. One product does not do all. Stain Solutions Gold Coast has up to 8 different shampoos to choose from.
So What Can Go Wrong?
If you clean your Upholstery yourself, it’s likely the Upholstery will be too wet. This can damage the padding of the lounge suite.
Browning is very common when trhe Lounge suite is over wet. It causes a brown stain over the carpet which also happens to upholstery.
When you rent a carpet hot water extractor machine the chemicals that come with them can be too alkaline.
These chemicals along with over-wetting of the sofa which will increase the chance of cellulosic browning.
NOW THE HEALTH RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH OVER WETTING THE CARPET
Mould, mildew and dust mites. It’s not often, but possible that over wetting the sofa will introduce mould and mildew to the lounge suite.
It’s not always obvious but some of the signs will be darker areas on the lounge suite. Often you might not see it at first as the mould and mildew usually grows on the backing of the lounge suite which turns to black.
Many people say the Upholstery starts smelling.
The horrifying danger is the spores now get released. Not good, particularly if you’re an asthma sufferer.
If you live in a high humidity area, due to the Upholstery being over wet can also increase dust mite populations. This means that a suitable dust mite control program needs to be implemented. This link is directed to dust mites etc on a mattress but still relevant.
ARE CARPET & UPHOLSTERY FABRICS THE SAME?
Not at all. As mentioned earlier, we use up to 8 different shampoos. Stain Solutions Gold Coast will always walk through the property and inspect the fibre and condition. We are then in a position to professionally clean the Lounge Suite.
Are you still feeling you are best to use a hire machine? Probably not, however, you know more of what can go wrong so you’re in a better position to make the right call.
So now is the dollars saved really a saving?
