Carpet cleaning is a chore that nobody loves, but it’s essential to keep your carpets looking their best. Upholstery furniture can be tricky to clean, and requires specific tools and techniques. Fortunately, with the right tips and tricks, you can easily dry clean both your carpets and upholstered furniture.
The first step in preparing for a professional carpet cleaning is to use a dry brush on all of your upholstered furniture. This will help loosen dirt, debris, pet hair, and other particles that are imbedded deep within the fabric. If you don’t have access to a dry brush, you can also rent an upholstery cleaner from a local hardware store or home improvement center.
Once your furniture is prepped with the brush or cleaner, it’s time to move onto the carpets themselves. Before bringing in the professionals for steam cleaning or hot water extraction methods, make sure you vacuum thoroughly using an appropriate attachment for each specific type of carpeting such as shag rugs or berber carpets. Vacuuming will help remove any excess dirt and debris before the deep cleaning process begins.
Finally, once both your carpets and upholstered furniture are ready for professional treatment do not forget to declutter! Remove any items that may get in the way of proper drying after carpet cleaning has been completed such as lamps or books from coffee tables so that air can circulate freely around them during their drying process. Following these simple steps will help ensure perfect results when dry-cleaning your carpets and upholstered furniture!
