The Seven Principals of Upholstery Cleaning are published by the world’s most recognized body of cleaning certification (IICRC) and sets standards for safe, effective cleaning of upholstery. The Village Cleaner is IICRC certified and follows these standards to ensure that you get the maximum soil and spot removal with the safest procedures possible:
- Fabric Inspection: Identify the fiber content to assure appropriate cleaning method.
- Dye Testing: Apply a small amount of upholstery cleaner to an inconspicuous area of the fabric to test for dye stability.
- Dry Soil Removal: By first removing as much dry soil as possible, the effectiveness of any subsequent cleaning steps is greatly improved.
- Soil Suspension: A preconditioning agent is used on most fabrics to “suspend” the soil for more effective extraction.
- Soil Removal (Extraction): A water or solvent-based solution is used to whisk away the suspended soils.
- Pile Setting/Grooming: textiles that have a “pile” are set after cleaning with a special grooming brush.
- Drying: If necessary, high velocity air movers are used to promote faster drying.
