Most synthetic furniture recommends that you use warm water and the foam from some type of soap or shampoo. Although, we strongly recommend that you avoid using any type of soap or shampoo on your upholstery, if your tags recommend that processes, then the following procedure will be perfectly fine to use. If your furniture tags recommend dry cleaning (D), we recommend that you contact a professional instead for your upholstery cleaning.

Pre-spraying your upholstery with a quality Fire Fabric low PH Pre-Spray allows the cleaner to work it's way deeper into the fabric, thus helping the cleaner to loosen and dissolve the dirt and soils more effectively.
Heavy Soiled Furniture we utilize Conditioning and Brushing for Upholstery Cleaning
Using an upholstery brush, horse hair brush, or other soft pile brush, lightly scrub the piece of upholstery that has just been pre-sprayed. This will again work the cleaner deeper into the fibers and loosen dirt and soil.
Using the hot water extraction cleaning system, extract the piece of upholstery that has been pre-sprayed and conditioned. Making sure to overlap each stroke of the wand to prevent streaking. We always extract the upholstery at least one more time without water. This will help to remove more of the water and allow the furniture to dry faster
- Apply Fine Fabric Upholstery Protector to keep the upholstery in the best condition and help prevent soiling and staining.
- Final Grooming once the fabric is dry, groom the pile against the nap using a nap brush

Dry Clean Only Materials
The great majority of materials can be wet cleaned but there are a few exceptions. Some materials are to delicate and have to be dry cleaned. Dry cleaning a fabric insures that the dyes stay intact and the texture is maintained. We are aware of those types of material and have a dry cleaning process for these materials.
