It might not be a topic you’ve thought much about, but if you own furniture that has fabric on it, or have fabric drapes in your home, you should give some time to considering the benefits of upholstery cleaning — specifically the advantages present in professional cleaning done by a company with years of experience improving the look, feel and longevity of upholstery.
Longevity? Absolutely. While most people consider only the aesthetic advantages of having clean furniture — no one can deny there’s something great about snuggling into a clean couch to read a book or watch TV — perhaps the single most important benefit of having your furniture and drapes professionally cleaned is that they will last longer because of it.
You almost certainly have a significant investment tied up in your furniture, and the longer it lasts, the better your return on that investment. Cleaning the fabric removes not only the deep down grime and oils that make furniture look and smell dingy, it also removes dust and dirt particles that contribute to the wearing of the fabric fiber itself. That’s because those tiny particles are sharp, and when the fabric moves — when a cushion is sat upon, for example — those sharp edges work back and forth on the fibers like tiny saw blades. Worn spots become holes that must be repaired — or the furniture itself must be replaced.
Add the benefit of longer life for your furniture to the pleasure of ridding yourself of stains and smells that regular vacuuming simply can’t remove from the fabric, and you’ve got a lot to tell you a professional upholstery cleaning is worth doing.

Thanks to an increased effort on the part of rug manufacturers (and their sales staff) to educate consumers about the benefits of professionally cleaning their carpets, most home and business owners are taking care of their carpet investment with at least an annual cleaning — and for high-traffic carpets, folks seem to “get” that they’re doing themselves a favor when they call in the pros even more often.
But not everyone is aware that the same dirt and grime that affects carpet can also cause problems with the fabric used in furniture and draperies — and that there’s no substitute for professional upholstery cleaning when it comes to protecting those items as well.
Letting those dust particles build up in upholstery has the same effect as in carpet; the tiny, sharp edges of these particles act like miniature razor blades, and every time someone sits on a couch or draws aside the drapes, those edges saw back and forth against the fibers within the fabric, gradually wearing them down and causing damage you can see and feel. Dirty upholstery isn’t just unsightly (and it is unattractive to say the least); that dirt is inexorably destroying your furniture.
Upholstery cleaning is a way to turn back that clock, allowing you to get the most out of your likely sizable investment in furniture and drapes. Removing those particles means you’re keeping the fabric fresh and new for longer — and the longer your furniture and drapes last, the longer you can go without having to pay to replace them. Just like with carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning is a sound financial decisions that will save money and frustration over time.

Whether you’ve got tile installed in a kitchen, bathroom, or anywhere on the floor of your home, you know by now that it’s a durable choice and has many advantages. One of the disadvantages, as you’ve almost certainly also discovered, is that light-colored grout that looks fantastic the day it was installed has a tendency to attract stains and dark spots — and that taking on the task of tile and grout cleaning in your home is a daunting proposition. If you’ve spent a few hours on your hands and knees with a toothbrush scrubbing away at grimy-looking grout, trying increasingly toxic hardware-store cleaning brews in an effort to get that white back, you may have begun to believe the only way to restore that bright white grout finish is to completely replace the tile.
The good news is, our professional tile and grout cleaning service gets you off your knees and takes care of that drab, graying look by cleaning in ways you never thought possible. After a deep-cleansing high-pressure hot water treatment, our careful and considerate staff begin to draw all the suspended dirt and soil particles back out of the tile and grout, leaving behind grout that’s as bright as the day you put it in. After we use professional-strength equipment to thoroughly remove all the water, our proprietary grout sealing compound it laid down, to help protect the newly-cleaned areas from even the harshest of staining agents. Once that compound dries, we gently buff out the affected area and thoroughly inspect our coverage — and if we need to do it again to endure every inch is thoroughly protected, we’ll keep going until the job is perfect and you get to enjoy a floor just like new!
So don’t replace your tile — contact us for a professional tile and grout cleaning today!

When you buy furniture like chairs or a couch, you expect them to last. But just like your carpet, your upholstery can be cheated out of years of its life when neglected. That’s why the first step in protecting your furniture should be investing in regular professional furniture cleaning — to extend the life of your furniture, and help prevent the long-term damage caused by not cleaning.
Look around your home — your furniture probably represents the biggest single outlay of funds involved in turning a house into a home. Choosing a professional upholstery cleaning company to take care of your furniture cleaning needs is an important part of caring for your investment, making it last longer. Much like carpet, the upholstery on furniture collects dirt and grime deep inside the fibers of the fabric involved, working its way into every crack and every crevice — and gradually, cumulatively causing more and more wear on those fibers, until a tear or other damage is almost guaranteed.
Removing that ground-in dirt and grime doesn’t just make furniture look and smell better — which of course it does. More importantly, it extends the life of that furniture, and allows homeowners to enjoy their investment longer. For your furniture to look its best year after year, there’s nothing as effective as deep furniture cleaning, performed by the same company you trust to maintain the look, feel and durability of your carpets. Let our highly-skilled and highly-experienced upholstery cleaning staff tackle everything from broad cleaning of dingy couches to stubborn stains on armchairs, knowing you’ve put your furniture investment into the hands of seasoned professionals.
