Janssen’s is IICRC certified in upholstery cleaning and is recognized as one of the most educated and experienced upholstery care companies in Los Angeles County. Upon a thorough inspection, our certified technicians will determine the proper cleaning procedure for your specific needs.
From heavily soiled to light cleaning, our 12 step cleaning process is designed to restore your furniture as close to its original condition as possible. We can clean all types of upholstery, even the most delicate of fabrics.
HERE ARE THE STEPS WE TAKE
- Step 1: Pre-Inspection
Our service technician will inspect the upholstery, noting fabric type and soiling conditions. He will also advise you of any possible permanent staining.
- Step 2: Area Preparation (or Pick Up)
We will prepare the area where the upholstery will be cleaned to protect your surrounding floors and furnishings. In some cases, we can come to your home and pick up your upholstery and bring it into our plant for cleaning
- Step 3: Pre-Vacuum
Your upholstery will be thoroughly vacuumed to remove dry soil. Removing dry soil is one of the most important steps in cleaning.
- Step 4: Pre-Treat
The fabric is pretreated with special cleaning compounds specially designed for your particular fabric & soil condition. This loosens up the soil to make rinsing more effective.
- Step 5: Pre-Spot
Any potentially difficult spots will be pretreated with special solutions to increase chances of removal.
- Step 6: Pre-Groom
The fabric will then be gently groomed with a white towel or soft upholstery brushes to loosen the soil.
- Step 7: Soil Extraction & Rinse
The soil is then exacted from the fabric with a gentle controlled rinse.
- Step 8: Neutralize
The fabric will be PH balanced to maintain its soft fresh feel.
- Step 9: Pre-Spot Treatment
If any spots are not removed during the cleaning process, specialty-spotting techniques are employed, however potential permanent stains as identified by the technician may or may not be removed.
- Step 10: Post Groom
The upholstery will then be prepared for drying with a gentle combing of the fabric.
- Step 11: Speed Dry
High velocity air movers are set in place to speed dry the upholstery.
- Step 12: Post Inspection (and Delivery)
Our technician will review the cleaning results to ensure expectations have been met or exceeded. For upholstery that was picked up, we will deliver your upholstery back to your location typically within 5 business days.
