Upholstery cleaning is a more delicate cleaning procedure than general carpet cleaning. Upholstery cleaning chemicals are hypoallergenic due to the increased contact with skin. Products used on upholstery must always be tested, even if they are dry solvent products. Do this by having product in the form you would clean with (diluted or undiluted). Look for bleeding, crocking, and color transfer while testing. Check the threading and piping for any abnormalities or different colors. Open up the cushions at the zipper and look for any magic marker used to mark cushions. Common symbols on tags for upholstery are X - vacuum only, S - solvent only, W - wet clean, and S/W - solvent or wet clean. Keep in mind sometimes these symbols are referring to the padding instead of the fabric. This is why testing is always recommended.
Dry solvent cleaning of upholstery can be done either by hand or with a dry cleaning machine. Care needs to be taken in using dry cleaning solvents; chemical-resistant gloves and other protective equipment should be worn.
Recommended Basic Method:
- Using a viton sealed pump-up sprayer, apply dry solvent pre-spray to upholstery.
- Use a furniture brush to work pre-spray into upholstery.
- Use a viton sealed pump-up sprayer or a dry cleaning machine to apply dry cleaning detergent undiluted to upholstery.
- Agitate with an upholstery brush.
- Dry vacuum with extraction cleaner or use clean white towel to blot dry.
