Upholstery cleaning Dublin company, Aqua-Dry’s Top Tips

Cleaning furniture and fabrics in your home or office can take time and a significant effort but by following these tips composed by upholstery cleaning Dublin company Aqua-Dry can simplify the whole process and make it less of a slog!

Step 1- Preventative measures and the use of ScotchgardTM.

A very handy preventative measure is to regularly vacuum upholstered furniture. A vacuum should be used to clean soft furnishings on a weekly basis and make sure you use the right attachments – like the small angled head – as they can be very handy to get between smaller crevices, where dust and dirt can easily accumulate over time.

Another good tip is to bring cushions outside once a month or so and beat them by hand. This will stop dust from setting into the fibres of the fabric. Also if you have high quality upholstered furniture, you might consider not allowing the family to eat while sitting on your “good” furniture. Food and drink are two of the worst culprits when it comes to causing stains. Similarly you might consider not allowing pets into your sitting room as it can be hard to prevent them from innocently staining your sofas or chairs, through no fault of their own!

ScotchgardTM (sometimes spelt as Scotchguard or Scotch Guard)

This protective shield, applied by professional upholstery cleaning Dublin companies such as Aqua-Dry will help to stop spillages from turning into permanent stains on furniture and fabrics. It can’t stop accidents from happening but it makes the clean-up fast and effective, prolonging the lifespan of upholstery and fabrics.

Step 2 – Dealing with stains on the spot

The best thing to do when tending to a fresh stain is to not allow it time to set. You should use a blotting motion with either a paper towel or a clean white absorbent towel. A big mistake would be to rub-in the stain as it would make the damage larger than it already is and more difficult to remove. If blotting the stain doesn’t work, a cleaning service may be required. We do not recommend that you attempt to clean your own upholstery. We know the temptation to try something, anything, but do your best to resist. The use of a wrong product can permanently damage your suite or chair in seconds. Your best bet is to contact an upholstery cleaning Dublin company like Aqua-Dry, as experienced professionals will know the best course of action given your type of upholstery and we are always very pleased to help you over the phone if we can.

Step 3 – A deep clean

Some householders like to have a deep clean on upholstery and carpets every 6 months – for others years can go by. This is purely down to personal preference and the extent of use that your sofas, chairs, etc. get. As a loose rule of thumb, the maximum time we would recommend that should lapse between deep cleans is two years.  And when you do bring in the experts, you’ll find your whole house feels fresher and cleaner once the dust is removed; some of our clients have even told us that they and their kids were able to breathe more easily in the home after a clean.

Why not go for it today? Give us a ring and tick that box off your list. We look forward to your call.

We recently purchased a new sofa and wanted to protect it from any potential spills. I rang Aqua-Dry, the very helpful Hannah explained the process and cost structure and was able to book me in the next day. I would highly recommend the excellent professional services of Aqua-Dry. The coating is applied there were no strong smells and no disruption. They are helpful, efficient and very courteous. The company comes recommended by both Frank McGowan Furniture and Arnotts Department Store and us! Thank you Tom!

I had a bit of a crisis involving spilled paint on carpet. Aqua-Dry Carpet Cleaners came to my rescue! They were finishing a job nearby and were able to get to me within a half hour. They told me to keep the carpet wet while I waited for them to arrive. When they got here they got to work right away and they were able to get all the paint up! After they left they called and told me to watch out for any paint that may come up from the concrete and to call if I noticed anything and they will come back out. I'm really impressed at how quickly they responded to my call and how professional they were. The price was extremely affordable. I would use them again in a heartbeat and would recommend them to anyone needing their carpets cleaned.

I have used many different companies, primarily because I never found one worth to have back. The others weren't bad, they just didn't give me a reason to hire them again. Not the case here. Aqua-Dry Carpet Cleaners could not be more professional. Arrived on-time and did a fantastic job! My carpets were clean fresh and looked like new.

I was delighted with Aqua-Dry services. What a great work they did on my rug. I am thrilled to see the refreshed, totally clean and looking like new rug. Although it takes quite a long time to get your item back and it is not a cheap service, it totally worth waiting and paying. I would definitely recommend Aqua-Dry and will be using them again.

Just had Tom and his son cleaning my carpets. What a terrific job they did, they told me I had moths in my sitting room eating merrily away at my carpet but were very reassuring that they could deal efficiently with the problem and advised me how to avoid it in the future. My carpets came up like new especially the stairs which is down for about 14 years. I would highly recommend Aqua-Dry and will certainly use them exclusively in the future. Thanks a million

Delighted with our rugs! We've just moved back into our house after three long months out for repairs and wanted to make the most of this opportunity by freshening everything up. Aqua-Dry took away all our rugs for cleaning and stored them for us until we got back and they were like new on return. We have a few Oriental rugs which need to be cleaned by hand and I don't trust these to just anyone. Thank you for a very professional service and for going that extra mile.

After a bug passing through the house I needed the carpetes cleaned. Aqua dry were quick to respond. Tony did a super job on the bedroom carpets and a few spots along the way. He was prompt, efficient, friendly and a pleasure to have around. Will defiantly be calling on aqua dry again. Thanks guys.

I honestly couldn't be happier with the service. Tom collected and returned the rug when he said he would and it came back looking so much better. We got it cleaned because our cat had peed on it a few times last year but I didn't realise how much everyday dust and dirt had built up in it over 10 years even though it's vacuumed every week. It came back looking noticeably brighter and the wool had its lovely lustre back. The pile was also fuller and softer. I hadn't appreciated how flattened down it had become. I'll definitely be recommending Aqua-Dry to anyone I know who needs their rug cleaned.
