Upholstery Cleaning for
Fort Worth, Keller, Southlake, Grapevine & all DFW
Homeowners often do not look beyond their carpet when it comes to maintaining interior fabrics and fine textiles. Upholstery and draperies are often over-looked because they don't look visibly dirty. However, the same soils that fall out of the air and onto the carpet and other horizontal surfaces in your home also fall out onto the upholstered fabrics, fine textiles and are filtered through the draperies.
Studies show that upholstered fabrics should be cleaned and protected at least once a year and if there are smokers in the home or pets, they should be cleaned at least twice a year. Some upholstered fabrics can easily be wet-cleaned whereas other more delicate fabrics must be dry cleaned.
Carpet and Fabric Protection - Spot Removal
Almost all new carpet has some type of protective overspray applied when it is manufactured. Whether it is 3M's Scotchgard™, Dupont's Teflon® or the carpet manufacturer's own product, there is usually some type of protection applied at the mill.
You might remember when your carpet was new that any type of spill was cleaned easily from the surface of your carpet. You might also notice now that in the traffic areas of your carpet, spills no longer clean easily from the surface and they tend to just soak through. This is happening because the mill applied oversprays that will wear off with foot traffic. This is why most manufacturers recommend a protective overspray be applied after cleaning to replace whatever has been taken off with wear.
In addition to protective oversprays resisting spills, they also help prevent the carpet from wearing. The majority of soil found in your carpet is known as particulate soil which would have been tracked in from outside. These soils act as sandpaper on your carpet fibers, causing them to abrade and wear out. Protective oversprays provide a coating that helps resist this type of staining. Carpet Service Express offers a carpet & fabric protective spray which is recommended by manufacturers.
Pet Odor Removal
The majority of odors that we are asked to remove are a result of pets that stay indoors. Today, it seems that homeowners leave their pets inside more then ever before.The severity of these odors is often underestimated by homeowners as they become somewhat desensitized to the smell over time. However on humid days or when there is an attempt to sell the home, the odor may become very apparent.
Over-the-counter products that are sprayed or sprinkled onto the carpet will usually only mask the smell for a short period of time. These odors can successfully be removed; however, it takes (professional-strength) enzymes to digest the bacteria. In severe cases, the backing of the carpet has to be treated along with the sub floor.
Carpet Service Express has the training and the products to remove these odors, oftentimes at a substantial savings over carpet replacement. In addition to pet odors, Carpet Service Express prides itself in the removal of other types of odors, such as smoke, skunk, water damage, and general type odors.
