I am going to show you how to pick a reputable Upholstery cleaning cleaning company. This is going to save you a lot of time and energy, and save you a lot of money and heart ache as well.
For you the consumer it is a difficult thing to know what exactly you should be asking a Upholstery or carpet cleaning company or individual, before you invite him or her into your home or office.
One of the first things you should ask is are they or the person coming to clean your Upholstery fully trained? If so can they prove it by certificates?
This is good for you the consumer because you can then ring the relevant bodies and ask if this is true. The relevant body will have the name of the person who took the Upholstery cleaning exam.
The recognized bodies I refer to are if you are living in the UK the National Carpet Cleaners Association (or the NCCA for short) or the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (or IICRC for short), They may even be a member of the Alltec Select Team for example.
You can also ask what method of cleaning do they use to clean your upholstery. Any one who has been trained in Upholstery or carpet cleaning will know how to answer you.
They may mention hot water extraction - or steam cleaning as it is also known - or dry compound cleaning.
Before they answer that question they would need to know what type of upholstery you have, because different upholstery requires different cleaning.
Ask them how they would go about cleaning your upholstery. For example for Dralon upholstery, they should say: The first thing we do is to hoover your upholstery or carpet then we apply a pre-spray to the upholstery which helps to treat any stains and also conditions the upholstery. That should then be agitated into the upholstery or carpet using a brush or something similar.
Again any one who is fully trained in upholstery or carpet cleaning will be extremely familiar with this method its something we do as standard all the time with no exceptions.
