UPHOLSTERY & LEATHER CLEANING

Our 12-step upholstery cleaning process is designed to restore your furniture to as close to its original condition as possible. We can clean all types of upholstery, even the most delicate fabrics.

Step 1: Pre-Inspection

Our technician will perform special tests to determine the content of your

fabric. The content will determine what type of cleaning solutions and

techniques will be used. We will also point out any potential permanent

stains or areas of concern.


Step 2: Area Preparation

We will prepare the area where the upholstery will be cleaned to protect your surrounding furnishings.


Step 3: Pre-Vacuum

All textiles should be vacuumed thoroughly before cleaning. This step will remove dry soils and any loose particles from cracks & crevices.


Step 4: Pre-Treat

Depending on your fabric, a special solution designed for your fabric type and the soiling condition will be applied to emulsify the soils. 


Step 5: Pre-Spot

Any potentially difficult spots will be pre-treated with special solutions to increase chances of removal.


Step 6: Pre-Groom

The fabric will then be gently groomed used soft upholstery brushed to loosen the soils.


Step 7: Soil Extraction & Rinse

The soil is then extracted from the fabric with a gentle, controlled rinse.


Step 8: Neutralize

The fabric is then pH balanced to maintain its soft, fresh feel.


Step 9: Post-Spot

Any remaining spots will be treated with special stain removal products.


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 will be placed on the upholstery to speed dry the fabric.


Step 12: Post-Cleaning Inspection

Our technician will review the cleaning results with you to insure that your expectations have be met or exceeded. 

​​Leather

As a general rule, leather furniture needs no particular daily care. Every now and again it is advisable to remove dirt and dust from furniture using a soft brush vacuum attachment or a soft duster. Once you are certain that the furniture is clean, apply a specialized leather cream cleaner and carefully polish. Make sure all dust and fragments have been removed before you begin polishing to prevent particles from abrading the surface of the leather.


There are many different types of leather, so it is difficult to give any pricing over the phone. Because of this, we offer free assessments. A certified technician will come to your home, inspect the furniture, determine the type of leather, and then type of cleaning needed. Leather furniture should be professionally cleaned often to keep it looking fresh and new.

Leather Types


Leather Master classifies according to cleaning codes and deck labels into the basic categories: (A)-ANILINE/NON-COATED, (P)-PROTECTED/COATED, and (N)-NUBUCK/SUEDE.


(A)-ANILINE/NON-COATED: These leathers are colored with transparent dyes which enable you to see the actual grain and markings. The most common process is to spray a wax finish on their surface which only gives short term water repellence.


To determine if your leather is "Unprotected," lightly scratch the surface to see if it reveals a lighter color, or if leather conditioners or water darken the hide.


(P)-PROTECTED/COATED: This type of leather is also known as "coated" or "painted". These leathers have aspects of a natural finish, but more uniform in appearance. The heavier pigments can create much darker colors. Protected leather has a substantial finish applied that makes the leather more resistant to heavy wear and stains. The heavier pigments and finish do affect the softness and scent, so these leathers often don't feel or smell like real leather.


To determine if your leather is Protected, lightly scratch the surface to see if it leaves a lighter color, or if cleaners and conditioners remain on the surface. Liquids will not penetrate Protected leather.


These leathers will also have a sheen or even shine. It's like looking at wood with a lacquer finish opposed to a wipe-on oil finish. These leathers are more common in the automotive industry.


(N)-NUBUCK/SUEDE: Sometimes called "Distressed", "Bomber" or "Suede" this type of leather is actually an "Unprotected" finish that has been brushed. Many confuse this finish with Suede leather. Suede is the flesh side of the hide, while Nubuck is an effect created on the grain side, making it incredibly soft. This 'brushing' also makes it more absorbent than regular Aniline leathers.


Nubuck leather will have a texture similar to velvet. If you move your hand across the surface, the nap will change appearance similar to vacuuming carpet. Liquids will darken this type of leather. It is popular for home furnishings, as well as the fashion industry.
