Silk Upholstery Cleaning – Chem-Dry sets the standard
Silk fabric looks beautiful and silk upholstery can make any room look a lot more special. When you consider the production process, it is also little wonder that is so expensive. From a maintenance perspective it is difficult to keep clean and some cleaning attempts may even ruin the lounges. Chem-Dry Silk Upholstery Cleaning technicians have the skill, training and advanced cleaning solutions to take care of your upholstery. Not many cleaning companies are prepared to clean silk fabric. The risk of water staining is just too great. Indeed many customers will come to us when they have already water stained the silk fabric. The unfortunate truth is that the damage is permanent and we are not able to reverse such stains.
If you are serious about keeping the silk upholstery looking great for as long as possible, consider the following:
If you have small children it is best not to have silk upholstery. If you do have this kind of upholstery, keep the kids out of the room permanently. Make it a toddler free zone!
Ban any consumption of food or drinks whilst sitting on the sofas. Even better still, make everyone take their shoes off before entering the room as well. You would be amazed how these little habis/rules make all the difference.
Make sure the fabric has been protected against stains when you buy silk. Do not attempt any stain removal yourself as you are likely to make it worse.
Vacuum the silk fabric on a regular basis to remove dust and ingrained dirt. More details on maintenance is found on http://www.howtocleanstuff.net/how-to-clean-silk-upholstery/
