Your sofa is most likely the first thing people notice when they step into your home. The texture and most importantly how clean your sofa says a lot about you. Generally, most people think sofa cleaning is done only when they’re stains all over the upholstery set. The answer, No! Sofa cleaning service isn’t an activity done only when they’re stains all over the sofa.
Picture this, on a regular basis; your sofa gets the most visitors, yourself included. Over time, it collects and accumulates dust and dirt particles. If these particles aren’t cleaned and maintained, they could cause permanent stains or weaken the fabric of the sofa. Regular maintenance is a necessity to ensure all the dust, and dirt particles are taken out of the fabric cleaned and refreshed.
Not only does a dirty looking sofa question the hygiene of a home, but it is also a possible health hazard. Dust and dirt particles kept accumulated for extended periods of time start decomposing and become breed grounds for bacteria. Especially is these dirt particles are food crumbs, body sweat/grease and other microorganisms. If they aren’t cleaned, they could cause indoor air pollution and trigger allergic reactions like skin reactions and asthma. The good news, Skillpatron’s sofa cleaning is a simple one-step method.

How to Clean Different Sofa Fabrics
The sensitive part about cleaning your sofa is understanding the fabric it is made out of. Different fabrics require different cleaning methods. It’s important to learn how to vacuum your sofa and how to absorb small, common stains before they become stubborn stains. Knowing how to do these things, will help maintain the quality of your sofa and prevent damage. Below is the most common type of fabrics used in making sofas.
Synthetic Fabrics are made out of synthetic fibres like acrylic, polyester, nylon or olefin. They are generally easy to clean and can stand liquids better than any other fabric. In case of an emergency, you can even take the clothing and put it into the washing machine but you want to make sure you check the label for specific instructions on the best cleaning product to use. This fabric is most susceptible to shrinkage or discolouration if an improper cleaning agent is used.
This type of upholstery is made of 100% natural fibres, like cotton, wool and in some cases silk, velvet or line. Natural fabrics typically retain water and so, wet cleaning isn’t the precise way of cleaning. The most effective method of cleaning, in this case, is steam cleaning because too much water can cause permeant damages and cause shrinking or leave watermarks.
Combination upholstery is the most familiar type of upholstery. In this case, the cotton or wool is fused with some synthetic thread or design. The trick is, combination fabric requires the most caution since each individual component requires a separate cleaning method. The most preferred option here is to hire qualified cleaners to avoid shrinkage and damages.
Microfibre upholstery uses many fibres, which prevents dirt from penetrating deep into the fabric. It is durable and easy to maintain. Light scrubbing and vacuuming should be enough to remove a simple stain. For deep stains, however, you should call professionals to prevent damaging this type of fabric.
Leather is another common material used on sofas. Leather ordinarily requires wiping off dust and dirt and some occasional cleaning to maintain its elastic and smooth texture. Again, if you encounter a stain, then your best option would be to hire a professional cleaning company because cleaning agents are bad for leather material. In addition, using water can corrode the metal and wooden parts of the furniture.

How is low-moisture sofa cleaning done?
First, we vacuum the upholstered furnishing to extract embedded dust and dirt particles. Next, the fabric is thoroughly cleaned using a low moisture cleaning agent (for emphasis, this step depends on the fabric material and depth of the stain.) The cleaning agent used, is designed to extract deeply embedded dirt particles. This is the most significant part of the cleaning process, after which the entire upholstery set is sanitized using 100% chemical safe anti-dust mites’ disinfectants. This is to ensure that it takes a while before dust mites and microorganism begins to accumulate again after the treatment. In the case of cleaning leather sofas, they will be thoroughly massaged to prevent drying and cracking. Depending on how dirty your sofa gets and how frequently it’s used, you should have it cleaned once every few months.
