Our twelve step process for the cleanest, healthiest and longest lasting sofa cleaning.
Hi my name is Andrew and I own and operate Omega Clean, thank you for clicking on my Cambridge sofa cleaning page.
Let me start by reassuring you that we offer the best and most thorough upholstery cleaning in Cambridge and the surrounding villages.
Why am I so sure; please read on and you will understand why I am so passionate about my service.
I have spent literally thousands of pounds and I have attended scores of upholstery cleaning courses held by leading experts in this field.
If you add to this the fact that I have passed exams on sofa cleaning both IRCRC, NCCA, along with local supplier run courses, I am also fully insured plus I offer a guarantee of my workmanship then this all adds up to no risk upholstery cleaning.
Please let me explain why I offer the best upholstery cleaning with the quickest drying times, then compare my service to my competitors and see what they offer and ask them what their process is.
I will make an appointment with you before the day of cleaning. This appointment will be for both of our benefit. We need to ascertain the fabric type so that we can choose an appropriate cleaning solution/method.
More importantly we need to study your sofa and chairs; we need to point out wear areas that will still show after we have left also we need to discuss the history of any marks or stains on your upholstery along with the likely outcome of cleaning.
We will arrive on time on the day you book us to come and clean your sofa. We will protect any wood flooring before we start and quickly just go through the survey again with you. This is just to clarify exactly what you want.
So now we are ready to begin the cleaning process, so we remove all of the cushions from the sofa or chair and thoroughly all the fabric including the base.
Top Tip: Ask whoever you book if they do this, a true professional will always vacuum a sofa before introducing the cleaning solution.
We test the fabric to make sure there are no issues with our cleaning solution causing bleeding, this is where for example you have a very dark colour next to a very light colour and the dark merges into the light. This is an important step especially when there is some red piping around a light coloured cushion.
Application of a suitable cleaning solution, we let this dwell for a while about five to ten minutes.
This next bit is not common but some companies like us do this next step also.
We use a micro fibre hand mitt and work the cleaning solution over the fabric.
This serves two purposes, one it ensures an even spread of the cleaning solution and the other is that it removes a layer of soiling. Already your sofa will be much cleaner and we haven’t even started to rinse it yet.
We then set about setting up the equipment and machinery. Our high powered truck mounted machine sits inside of our van outside of your property. This machine is the ultimate in extraction machines and is far more powerful than the little portable machines that other companies use.
The reason we use such a powerful machine is that we know you want your sofa to be cleaned and dried as soon as possible so that you can enjoy the luxury of your clean fresh soft upholstery.
So just to re-cap, I have vacuumed your sofa thoroughly removing the dry particulate, I have applied our pre-spray and massaged this into the fabric. Whilst doing this we have removed another layer of soil and opened up the fibres of the fabric so we can rinse the remaining soiling out along with all the non-visible microscopic pathogens.
To do this we use a specialist upholstery tool that is connected to our truck mounted powerful extraction machine that sits outside.
The specialist sofa cleaning hand tool has an angled head which is at about thirty degrees, there is a slot at the top and a slot at the bottom of the face of the tool. It is connected via solution hose and a vacuum hose that lead in from the machine.
The benefit of this is that unlike many companies who use right angled hand tools and soak the padding underneath the fabric our system only wets the fabric which greatly reduces drying times and stops potential problems such as mould, extremely long drying times that can cause odour issues or shrinking.
Once the sofa has been completely rinsed we will go back over the fabric with a micro fibre mitt. This is done to remove any excess moisture that may still be on top of the fabric. This will also re set the pile sometimes we will use a brush after the hand mitt.
If needed we will set up a snail fan that will blow air across the fabric to help it dry quickly. Usually we leave it on until we have finished clearing everything away.
We will invite you to inspect our work and we will deal with any of your concerns there and then. But sometimes things only appear once fully dried so if after drying you have any worries please contact us again and we will come out and address these issues with you, remember we guarantee our workmanship.
We can if you want apply a protector to the fabric of your sofa, this will give you time to deal with the little accidents and spills that might occur.
We normally agree this at the quotation stage but if you decide it is something that you want added just ask the technician (usually me, well always me) I carry protector on the van and as long as the fabric is still damp I can totally protect your sofa.
So those are the twelve steps to the cleanest healthiest longest lasting upholstery cleaning on the planet.
