Cotton Upholstery Cleaning – Chem-Dry Professional Workmanship
Cleaning cotton lounges can be quite tricky. Quite often the cotton is a light (white or beige) colour where every single stain and mark show quite clearly. You may have tried to spot clean the cotton and just left an even larger stain. You may have small children which are often a danger to light coloured lounges. You may have a pet that left an odour on the sofa. It does not matter what challenge our technicians face. Chem-Dry’s cotton upholstery cleaning services prove our professional workmanship and results will consistently be to a high standard.
Cotton upholstery cleaning is one of the areas where our competition fall away.
The attention for detail and problems of poor workmanship deter many competing upholstery cleaners from attempting to clean cotton fabric. Normal steam cleaners often make mistakes of over-wetting cotton and/or using a high ph chemical cleaner to try and get good results. The risk of tack/staple rusting, fabric browning and mould incubation from too much moisture are common problems that they may cause.
Why does this happen?
It all starts with customers chasing the cheapest upholstery cleaning service. When an “upholstery cleaner” charges $ 99.00 for cleaning a 3 piece suite, please consider the Sydney facts:
The cleaner will have incurred fuel costs, possible toll charges, insurance costs (we hope), training costs (some do), marketing expenses, chemical and machine costs plus a raft of other expenses that are not that obvious to the normal customer.
Our conclusion is that a cheap cleaner will either have very little time to clean the upholstery, use cheap cleaning solutions, skip on insurance, use travelers or add unexpected charges when they arrive at the job. It can be of combination of the above. In our opinion it is not possible to charge these kinds of prices unless it is a scam, ‘shonky’ workmanship or a dedicated cleaner who is consistently making a financial loss.
