With more than 70 years in the carpet and upholstery cleaning business, Stanley Steemer boasts franchises in all 50 states and a whole host of services to keep your textiles looking and feeling fresh. For furniture and upholstery cleaning, the company offers services for leather, polyester, linen, cotton, wool, and microfiber couches, with experts on call to determine the correct course of treatment for even “dry-clean only” fabrics and unusual textures.
Setting up an appointment with Stanley Steemer is easy, with around-the-clock scheduling by phone or online and more than 300 local franchises. Each cleaning appointment begins with an inspection of the couch, checking for age, color, and fabric type to ensure that the best approach is taken. Next, Stanley Steemer uses a spot-treatment for any problem areas or stains before moving on to deep cleaning. Stanley Steemer doesn’t use steam cleaning on the upholstery—the company’s method is considered “water extraction,” during which the company uses hot water and a special solution to loosen dirt, allergens, and odors from within the couch before drawing them out with the water. Once the process is finished, Stanley Steemer will again inspect the couch to confirm you’re happy with the results, and the furniture should be dry within six hours.
For more delicate fabrics, Stanley Steemer has solutions beyond water extraction, so confirm with a representative if you have worries about the compatibility of your couch with the company’s methods. To keep your couch clean long after your appointment, consider adding on some of the company’s other offerings, from the SuperShield Plus protector treatment, which guards against stains and spills, to deodorizer application, which can neutralize smells from pets, food, and more.
