Avoid upholstery cleaning nightmares with us!

Thursday, Oct. 17th 2013

You’ve spent a lot of money on that furniture in your living room so you want to make sure that you hire a company that understands that there is not just one way to clean upholstery. Fine textiles require a much more gentle approach to make them look good as new. Often we see what we like to call “upholstery cleaning nightmares” and want to share one with you.

 

Fiber Distortion- Bock's Steam Star

The line running through the fabric is fiber distortion caused by improper cleaning

 

This beautiful cotton velvet couch now suffers from what we in the business call “fiber distortion.” The cleaner probably hooked up their super soaker to clean the fabric causing the nasty line through the fabric. It’s 100% the cleaner’s fault and it’s really difficult to remove. (For the record, this never happens when you do business with us).

 

Fiber Distortion- Bock's Steam Star

The couch cushion now resembles a terry cloth towell

 

This is the seat of the same couch. Unfortunately, over-agitation caused the fibers to “bloom” causing it to look much like a terry cloth towel and not fine velvet. Fabrics of this type need to be cleaned with the lay of the nap and then groomed with a special brush. Often, it needs to be brushed again when dry.

 

At Bock’s Steam Star, we understand how to adjust all the variables when cleaning fine fabrics. We perform a comprehensive inspection of the fabric before cleaning and run special tests to determine what type of solutions and techniques we’ll need to use. This eliminates any cleaning errors that may occur.

 

Our twelve step upholstery cleaning program is the most comprehensive in the industry and it was created to maximize cleaning while keeping the safety of the fabric in mind. And, we take the time to comprehensively train all our technicians to make sure they’re well –educated on the process.  We know that you don’t want to trust your investment grade fabric cleaning to someone that’s an amateur.
