Upholstery should be vacuumed regularly and cleaned every 12 to 24 months according to the manufacturers.
The process for cleaning upholstery is very similar to carpet cleaning. We use our hot water extraction method and upholstery specific cleaners. A special upholstery tool is used to ensure that all crevices and skirts are cleaned thoroughly. Some delicate fabrics require special solutions and techniques.
The upholstery fabric will determine the type of cleaning we do on your furniture and this will affect your drying time. The application of a protectant also affects drying time. In most cases, you will be able use your furniture within 2 to 4 hours, but complete drying can take up to 24 hours.
Most protective coatings wear off over time due to wear, vacuuming and cleaning. Soil is the enemy of fabric and fibers, however, so cleaning will help your upholstery last longer. Bluegreen recommends having a protective coating reapplied after cleaning to guard against future spots and spills.
Applying Bluegreen’s protector will keep your upholstery looking its best between cleanings. This specially formulated product helps upholstery resist soiling from dry dirt, water and oil-based spills. When you have our protection barrier applied, you will have more time to clean up spots and spills before they soak into the fibers. This makes vacuuming easier and will prolong the life of your upholstery.
