Upholstery Cleaning Frequent Questions in Northern Virginia
The tag on my upholstery says “Dry Clean Only.” Can you still clean it?
Many manufactures use this type of label on their upholstered products to keep them from being liable for problems that may occur during the cleaning process. Professional cleaners know that with knowledge, experience, proper cleaning agents, and advanced equipment they can clean the majority of fabrics that are labeled “dry clean only”. Your Mighty Clean Carpet Care technicians will evaluate your upholstery and notify you if your furnishings should be dry-cleaned only.
How long will it take my upholstery to dry?
Mighty Clean Carpet Care uses superior truck-mounted equipment with unrivaled vacuum power to remove most of the water used during the cleaning process. Following the cleaning, high speed air movers are used to speed up the drying time. Our cleaning process and professional equipment allows us to achieve drying times typically between 1-3 hours, but this depends on the type of fabric and its level of soiling.
Is there a protectant specifically formulated for upholstery to protect my furnishings from spills and wear?
Yes! Because upholstery gets as much wear and tear as carpeting, adding a protectant is a wise investment. Upholstery fabric is very different from carpeting in its materials and construction, so Mighty Clean Carpet Care offers the very protectant designed specifically for upholstery.
Should I get my mattress cleaned?
Mattresses are used on a daily basis and despite the amount of time we spend on them, most people overlook the mattress as part of their cleaning regimen. The average mattress contains over 2 million dust mites, which are a common allergen, not to mention the millions of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and molds that can also be found where you sleep. Dirty mattresses can also aggravate bronchitis, sinusitis, rhinitis, dramatis, and other skin disorders and allergic reactions. Having your mattress cleaned can improve your health, stop morning sneezing and decrease allergy flare-ups.
