After years of cleaning upholstery throughout Orange County working with All Star Chemdry, I have seen a great improvement in the quality of fabrics now available to homeowners. Back in the day, most couches and loveseats were upholstered with standard fabrics ranging from pure cotton and wool to blends of polyester and rayon. Our Chem-Dry hot carbonated cleaning process is able to remove much of the dirt and staining from these types of materials, and often the sofa or chair will look like new after cleaning. We get many compliments and return appointments from our happy customers that love to sit down on their freshly cleaned sectional at the end of a long day. But then a new wave of couches, dining room chairs, ottomans (you name it) started appearing in our customers’ homes sporting a new type of fabric: Microfiber, also known as Microsuede or Ultrasuede.
This upholstery, common in many homes in the Orange County area, is often mistaken for suede leather as it has a similar appearance and feel. The good news is that microfiber is typically made from polyester and is far more durable and cleanable that suede leather. Chem-dry upholstery cleaning solutions, which contain hot carbonated bubbles and gentle cleaning agents, are able to lift stains and dirt quickly and easily from micro suede sofas and their counterparts, and most of the time the furniture ends up looking like new. In addition, after we finish cleaning your couch or sectional, the chemdry process leaves the fabric noticeably softer to the touch. You wonder why you didn’t call All Star Chem Dry sooner for an affordable cleaning appointment that makes such a wonderful difference for you and your family.
I happen to have a large brown microfiber sectional that I’ve owned since 2006. 12 years later, and just a professional cleaning once or twice a year, it still cleans up like new and is soft to the touch when the chemdry service is finished. I’ve often thought about replacing my old sectional but each time I have it cleaned, it looks so good that I remember why I keep it around - It’s like an old friend in our family room! Our process also dries very quickly on upholstery so you can get back to your routine of binge tv watching fast with your family and pets.
Next time you are in the market for a new piece of upholstered furniture, check out microfiber an as option. It comes in many different variations now, from ultra-smooth to thick and textured, and the colors are basically unlimited so you can match it up with your décor like a interior designer. It’s the professional’s choice for favorite material to clean as it has a very high certainty of looking excellent upon completion, and after cleaning countless upholstered pillows, chairs, and love seats over the years, I have to say it’s a the top of my list when it comes to upholstery fabric.
