Microfibre Upholstery Cleaning – Chem-Dry produces great results
Australians love microfibre couches. The modern modular furniture is just about everywhere. It may be called different things by some manufacturers but it is basically the same type of thing. The names “Sen Suede, “Fake Suede” or “Mock Suede” are all found on care labels of microfibre upholstery. Our Microfibre Upholstery Cleaning technicians have cleaned thousands of lounge suites that look like suede leather but is actually fine strands of synthetic fibres.
Follow the care label instructions
Upholstery manufacturers will often produce a care label which instructs you how your upholstery should be looked after. This label may determine the process of cleaning that our technicians will follow. As all upholstery cleaning options are available to us, this does not present a problem. Many of our competitors walk away from lounges where they see “Dry Clean Only” in the care instructions. We are only too happy to take care of these kinds of cleaning jobs.
One of the big temptations for customers is to put cushion covers into the washing machine. Our advice is to ignore this instinct because it may cause unexpected problems. Washing machines will wash the fabric very well but there could be shrinkage. If this is the case, you will struggle to get the covers back onto the cushions. Even if you manage to get the covers back on, the shrinkage could be distorting the shape of the cushions. Split seams or damaged zippers could also be the result. In some cases washing powder contain bleach or some kind of oxidising agent and the fabric comes out clean but a bit lighter. As most lounge suites do not have the removable option for the fabric on the frame, you now sit with a two-tone lounge suite. No matter how many times we clean the frame to try and get it to match the cushions, the colours will still be different.
