How do you clean furniture?
We have a tried-and-tested cleaning method that includes vacuuming, stain removal and deodorising of soft furniture. We use the hot water extraction method, which is suitable for most types of furniture upholstery. It deals with old and stubborn dirt on sofas, armchairs and other furniture. Our professional upholstery cleaning service removes stains, dust and kills harmful bacteria.
How does the upholstery steam cleaning work?
Hot Water Extraction is carpets and upholstery treatment, which differs from the standard steam cleaning method, although many people call it that. Here is how it works:
- Hot water and cleaning detergent are mixed into a solution and sprayed through a high-pressure nozzle into the upholstery fabric. The steaming-hot solution kills bacteria and allergens settled into the furniture.
- At the same time, a suction nozzle extracts the liquid back together with the dirt and grime, leaving the upholstery sanitised and refreshed.
Hot water extraction absorbs more than 90% of the liquid. The professional steam sofa cleaning method we use is fit for natural and synthetic upholstery.
What products do you use for upholstery cleaning?
We use professional-grade products with proven cleaning efficiency to treat different stains, spots, and soiling. All of the cleaners we use are designed especially for cleaning soft furniture. They are non-toxic, eco-friendly, and harmless for children, pet animals, asthma, and allergy sufferers. However, if you are sensitive to some chemical ingredient, please tell us when booking our sofa cleaning service so we can use a substitute product.
How long will it take for my sofa to dry after steam cleaning?
Upholstery fabrics made from wool and wool blends take between 4 and 7 hours before it dries. All of the other upholstery types require between 3 to 6 hours to dry.
What types of furniture do you handle?
At Crown Cleaners, we have long experience cleaning various types of sofas, armchairs, ottomans, couches, dining chairs, car seats and other upholstered items.
How often should I have my sofa cleaned professionally?
It depends. Big families usually need to clean their upholstered furniture more often than small ones. Treating the sofa with professional stain protection products like Scotchguard can also prolong the cleanliness of the upholstery. Our Crown Cleaners specialists recommend professional sofa cleaning twice a year for home furniture used daily.
Can you remove old stains from the upholstery?
The efficiency of stain cleaning products depends on the origin of the dirt. Thanks to our professional-grade cleaning products, most of the time, we can remove even old and stubborn stains without leaving a trace. However, some spots are from substances that can permanently damage or discolour the fabric. The age and type of upholstery are also factors that determine the success of the stain removal procedure. And although not 100% of the ugly spots can be removed, our upholstery cleaning team will do everything in their power to remove them from your furniture.
What stain protection do you offer, and why should I use it?
We can provide Scotchgard – professional-grade stain protection upon your request. The product significantly prolongs the span of your upholstery’s cleanliness when applied after a deep carpet cleaning. The stain-repellent layer also helps extend the life of your sofa. We give a six-months guarantee for the anti-stain product we use on your furniture.
When can I book upholstery cleaning?
We at Crown Cleaners provide professional upholstery cleaning for your furniture throughout London 7 days/week, late evenings, and even on bank holidays at no extra cost to your bill.
Will my carpet be protected during the upholstery cleaning?
We usually place a protective sheet underneath upholstered furniture when we clean it to protect the rug or flooring below.
Do I have to pay for the parking?
The prices for our upholstery cleaning service don’t include the cost of parking or congestion charges. The best case would be if you can provide a free-of-charge parking spot near your home. Otherwise, we kindly ask you to take care of our vehicle’s parking fee while our colleagues clean your furniture.
How can I pay for the sofa cleaning service?
You can pay for our upholstery cleaning service with cash or with credit and debit cards. We accept bank transfers, too.
