How often do you clean the upholstery in your Philadelphia, PA home or business? ServiceMaster by ARTec provides residential upholstery cleaning.

What’s your residential upholstery cleaning process?

When most people attempt a doityourself approach to residential upholstery cleaning, it probably consists of using a vacuum extension to rid furniture of crumbs and clean the upholstery on a surface level.

That type of effort isn’t enough to reach the deep level of soil in your upholstery.

Maybe you’ll attempt a more earnest approach where you try to use a cleaning solution or rent a machine to get the job done, but if you’re not careful you can make mistakes that end up doing more harm to your upholstery than good.

We encourage you to leave your furniture in the hands of the professionals at ServiceMaster by ARTec when it’s time for upholstery cleaning. We have the tools, training, and experience to bring your upholstery back to life and remove tough stains.

If you attempt to do it yourself, you may run into one of these problems:

Choosing the wrong solution – Couches come in different materials such as microfiber and leather. Each type of material requires a different type of treatment. If you’re not properly educated on which type to use, you may end up using the wrong treatment.

Using a weak machine – A rented machine or vacuum extension will certainly remove some of the dirt and debris from your upholstery, but it won’t remove all of it. ServiceMaster by ARTec provides its staff with high powered cleaning machines in order to reach the deeply embedded dirt and soil most other machines miss.

Using the wrong amount of water – It’s tricky to determine the right amount of water needed to clean your upholstery. If you’re not careful, you can use too much and it will remain in your upholstery, mixing with the soil and actually leading to harmful mold growth.

Professional services of all kinds help you save time, ensure that the job gets done right, and give you peace of mind with one less item on your plate.

Taking care of your Philadelphia, PA home or business takes energy. Why not share the load with a company you can trust?
