How did my Lounge get so dirty?
Apart from food and drinks we leave a lot of our body oils on them. These body oils are perfectly natural and doesn’t mean you are dirty. Our bodies produce them to keep our skin from drying out and off course these come of on our fabrics. The trick is to break down these oils. However, most of todays fabrics are Olefilic which means that attract oil and are Hydrophopic which means they hate water. This then makes it hard to clean but if we have the right equipment, cleaning agents and training it makes it a lot easier and we get awesome results.If you are looking for lounge cleaning in Toowoomba you have definitely come to the right place. We are IICRC trained in Cleaning of Fabric and Upholstery and how to identify what fabric is being used.
Why is identifying your fabric important?
Because all fabrics are cleaned differently. Clean it the wrong way and the fabric can tear, have dye run, shrink, stretch, brown out or worse. We will tell you and show you how we identify the fabric. Remember if someone can’t they may wreck your lounge.
The fabrics that can’t be cleaned the same are:
- Polyester (micro suede)
Leather Lounge Cleaning
When cleaning your leather lounge we ensure that we do a test for colour fastness on the leather in an inconspicuous area. We then use Leather Safe products to clean your leather lounge and remove soils and body oils from sweat with our soft agitator tool which has special brushes that oscillate and clean the leather deeper and faster. This process removes all oils and then we must return the good oils in the form of a conditioner to the leather. This makes it feel soft and new again.
Fabric Lounge Cleaning
Cleaning the fabric of your lounge is done by steam cleaning. This needs to be hot or in our case boiling to remove the oils from the fabric. The products we use also have agents that remove that oil. In some bad cases we use our oscillating tool to agitate and remove the waxy oils. This is then extracted using our truck-mount steam cleaning machine.
We can treat for urine and also apply protectors to your lounge to aid in the reduction of stains for non polyester lounges.
