How our professional upholstery service in Melbourne works

Quick and efficient service from start to finish – including pre- and post- treatment!

A battle-ready upholstery cleaning expert arrives

On the day of your booking, we send out a professional couch cleaning expert with all the tools necessary. The pro will arrive at your address at the specified time carrying all the tools, detergents and machinery they need in their Fantastic van. Our Fantastic Cleaners always make sure to put on their protective overshoes before they enter your home.

Examination and pre-treatment

Your upholstery cleaner will get to work ASAP. They will first examine your soft furnishings and look for tough stains. Once they finish assessing the situation, the cleaner will pH-test any visible stains, then apply a pre-treating agent to loosen the stain before cleaning. Our agents always test our chemicals on a small, hard-to-reach area to avoid possible discolourations or other negative side effects.

Professional couch cleaning in Melbourne

Once the pre-treatment chemicals kick in, our couch steam cleaning technician will attach a special cleaning wand to the tube of their Hot Water Extraction machine. The cleaner will then slowly and carefully start going through the surface of your furniture

The cleaning wand boasts a specially designed nozzle that releases a powerful combination of hot water and effective cleaning detergents. This meticulous process ensures that even the most stubborn stains on your furniture are completely dislodged and eliminated.

At the same time, another part of the equipment – the suction attachment – is readily positioned opposite the cleaning wand. That way, the machine will take back more than 90% of the moisture plus all the dirt and grime, leaving your upholstered pieces perfectly cleaned and slightly damp but far from soaking wet. You only need to give it a few hours, and your furniture will be as dry once again.

Suintable for: synthetic/mixed fibres (polyester, wool, etc.)

Approximate drying time: 2 to 8 hours

Upholstery dry cleaning in Melbourne

For delicate furniture made of natural fibers, we employ safe and effective dry cleaning methods to avoid any risks of shrinkage or deformation caused by water and high temperatures.

Dry powder cleaning

Our main upholstery dry cleaning service involves applying a special cleaning powder to the fabric's surface and gently working it into the fibers using a brush. This solution loosens embedded dirt, grime, and contaminants.

After a short period, we use a powerful vacuum to remove the cleaning powder, leaving your upholstered furnishings clean, fresh, and dry, ready for immediate use.

Low-moisture solvent cleaning

Another option is our low-moisture solvent cleaning method. This technique employs a specially formulated solvent that effectively removes dirt and stains while minimising moisture.

We apply the solvent to the fabric, agitate it with a gentle brush, and then use a powerful vacuum to extract the solvent. The result is a clean and fresh fabric with minimal moisture, allowing you to enjoy your furniture almost immediately.

Drying time: within a few minutes.

Recommended for: natural fibres like cotton, linen, wool, silk, jute, hemp and others.

Please note: our upholstery dry cleaning service is a wonderful way to refresh your furniture. However, it might not be as effective at removing stains as Hot Water Extraction.

What our clients say:

Hot Water Extraction vs Steam Cleaning

Hot water extraction and furniture steam cleaning are two distinct methods used to clean carpets, upholstery, and fabrics. Although they may appear similar, they employ different techniques and yield contrasting outcomes.

Hot water extraction involves using a blend of hot water and cleaning solution for deep cleaning. The solution is applied and agitated on the surface, loosening embedded dirt and contaminants. Subsequently, a high-pressure stream of hot water dislodges grime while a suction attachment removes the dirt and cleaning solution. This thorough process effectively eliminates stains, odors, and contaminants from carpets and upholstery.

Conversely, furniture steam cleaning utilises a small amount of water and cleaning solution, generating steam at high temperatures. The steam aids in loosening dirt and grime. However, regular steam cleaning does not employ high pressure for extraction. Instead, it relies on the heat of the steam to evaporate the water and cleaning solution, leaving the surface relatively dry. It's worth noting that hot steam can even make protein-based stains harder to remove.

A key distinction between hot water extraction and regular steam cleaning lies in the quantity of water and cleaning solution used. Hot water extraction employs a larger amount, facilitating comprehensive cleaning and sanitation of the fabric. Regular steam cleaning, on the other hand, uses less water and cleaning solution, which may result in a reduced effectiveness in removing stains and odors.

In summary, while both methods aim to clean fabrics, hot water extraction offers a more thorough approach with the use of higher water pressure and larger amounts of cleaning solution.

Frequently asked questions about our upholstery cleaning service

Q: What are the benefits of regular upholstery cleaning?
A: Our professional cleaning services restore the vibrant appearance of your furniture by removing dirt, stains, and contaminants. This not only improves the overall look but also enhances the air quality in your home by eliminating dust and allergens. Regular cleaning extends the lifespan of your furniture, saving you money in the long run. Trust us for reliable and effective upholstery cleaning to keep your furniture looking and feeling its best.
Q: Will my furniture smell wet after the cleaning is done?
A: Allowing time for proper drying is crucial for optimal results. With our Hot Water Extraction cleaning machine, over 95% of the moisture and detergents used are efficiently extracted, leaving your furniture slightly damp. Typically, it takes between 3 and 7 hours for the upholstery to dry completely. To expedite the drying process, you can enhance air circulation by opening windows or utilizing fans. After the recommended drying period, you should only experience the pleasant freshness of your newly-cleaned furniture, without any lingering smells.
Q: Does your company apply fabric protectors to sofas?
A: Yes, for a small extra fee, we offer Scotchgard™ Fabric Protector. Our cleaning professionals can apply it to your upholstery after the cleaning process. Scotchgard™ helps your furniture stay looking new for longer, extending its lifespan and preventing costly replacements. It is safe to use on various fabrics, including natural, synthetic, and leather. Even if you didn't choose Scotchgard™ during your online booking, you can simply ask our cleaners on-site, as they always carry Scotchgard™ with them. Enjoy protection for all your upholstered furniture with Scotchgard™.
Q: What is the average drying time for upholstery?
A: The drying time for upholstery can vary based on several factors, such as the upholstery type, room humidity, temperature, and the level of moisture after cleaning. It is advisable to allow your upholstery to air dry thoroughly. The drying duration can significantly differ depending on fabric type and the extent of dampness. For instance, a small damp spot may dry within an hour or two, while a larger area that is completely saturated might take up to 8 hours to dry completely.
Q: Can you remove blood stains?
A: The answer depends on the stain's age and whether it has been treated with other detergents. Older blood stains or those exposed to heat or sunlight can pose challenges during the removal process. However, with our expertise, we can typically remove at least a portion of the blood stain from your upholstery using appropriate techniques and products. Rest assured, we are committed to going above and beyond to achieve the best possible results in treating blood stains on your upholstery.
Q: What happens if one of your technicians damages my upholstery?
A: All of our upholstery cleaning technicians are fully insured against any damage they might cause to your property. If you happen to notice anything out of the ordinary, we have a full customer support team on the line for you 24/7. Simply give us a call, explain the situation and our insurance will cover you 100% if anything goes wrong.
Q: Can you guarantee that all stains will be removed?
A: It's important to note that stain removal is never a 100% guarantee. The success of the stain removal process depends on several factors, including the type of stain, the type of upholstery, and the length of time the stain has been there for. Even with the most powerful spotters and chemicals, some stains may be impossible to remove fully. Additionally, certain fabrics, such as silk or wool, may require specialised cleaning methods that are less likely to remove a stain completely.
Q: What upholstery cleaning method is best for pet urine?
A: The best method for cleaning pet urine from upholstery will depend on the type of upholstery you have and the extent of the stain. Even so, the most important factor is acting quickly. You should remove as much of the urine as possible before it can soak in and cause an odour or discolouration. Since our technicians usually arrive a while after your pet peed the couch, they carry a testing set and a range of detergents -ready to tackle any stain, anytime, any place!
