Upholstery Cleaning

They are IICRC certified and offer the best upholstery cleaning services in the area. Upholstery can become stained or odorous as a result of wear, spills, and pets. In order to keep upholstery looking and smelling fresh, clean, and new, it’s best to contact a professional upholstery cleaning service. A quality upholstery cleaning can remove spots and stains, disinfect the fabric, and eliminate odors.

Fabric Assessment

The first step in the upholstery cleaning process is an evaluation of the fabric. The technicians at All American Carpet & Tile are equipped with various cleaning products and tools that can clean just about any type of natural or synthetic fabric. The technicians will use the cleaning technique, chemicals, and brushes that are best suited to the type of fabric. For example, delicate materials can’t tolerate harsher chemicals and abrasive scrubbing brushes; in the case of fragile materials, a gentler product and technique will be employed. Each piece of fabric is treated individually to ensure that it gets the best cleaning possible.

Prior to cleaning, the technicians will also test fabric for colorfastness.


Once a cleaning plan has been formulated, a powerful vacuum is used to extract dry soil from the surface and fibers of the fabric.

Application of the Pre-treatment Solution

Next, the pre-treatment solution is applied to loosen debris and stains. Pre-treating the fabric will prepare it for the agitation and rinsing process. It’s an effective way to prepare the material for the rest of the treatment process. Once the furniture has been pre-treated, All American Carpet & Tile’s technicians will begin cleaning with the appropriate tools.

The Rinsing and Drying Process

A high flow and low moisture rinsing process is used on fabrics that are considered dry-clean only. The effective Dri-Steam Upholstery Tool is a device that suctions as it cleans. This tool leaves the fabric much cleaner and dryer than conventional methods used by other companies; it dries the fabric in one to two hours. Commerical drying fans may also be used to speed dry your fabric.

Upholstery Protector

An upholstery protector such as the Dupont Teflon Protector should be applied to fabric after professional cleanings. Most upholstery fabric is sprayed with a protector before it is sold to consumers. However, the professional cleaning process strips the fabric of the protective layer. This is why it is recommended that an upholstery protector product be re-applied after professional cleanings.

The team at All American Carpet & Tile uses the Dupont Teflon Protector. This protector is widely believed to be the best in the industry. It creates a protective layer between the fabric and stain-causing agents. This prevents spills from penetrating the fabric fibers for a longer period of time, and makes it easier to remove spills and stains. The upholstery protector will keep furniture looking fresh and beautiful, and extend the time between professional cleanings.
