We have been in business for almost 9 years. I’ve had the opportunity to clean some unusual homes and vehicles. One of my favorite opportunities was cleaning the Wienermobile. This iconic marketing vehicle rolled into town and I made it my mission to find it and clean the carpet in it.


It was a fun project and the crew driving the vehicle loved the fresh, clean carpet.

Microfiber couches can be a love hate situation for most homeowners. They look great when you first purchase them, are reasonably priced, and can be spot cleaned relatively easy. The problem with them is that microfiber is simply a reinvention of polyester.

I personally own microfiber couches and they have been very durable. They are about 6 years old. I clean them a couple of times a year and they clean up nicely. Most spots rinse out fairly easy with a normal cleaning solution and don’t need any specialized spotters. My couches are starting to show some wear along the beading on the cushions. This is from simply sitting on them and having clothing rub against it and wearing off the fabric. Even after I clean them, these areas can appear to still be dirty because the backing on the fabric is starting to show. There is nothing that can be done to prevent this, it is simply normal wear and tear.

One problem I encounter with microfiber is oil. If you have ever tried to get an oily spot out of a polyester shirt, you know where I am coming from on this. If you have your couches cleaned regularly, than this is not as much of a problem. However, if it has been years since the couches have been cleaned, then cleaning them can be a challenge.

Oil can come from many sources. Food, animals, hair and skin are just a few. Polyester adsorbs the oil. People or a pet then sit on it causing friction that grinds it deeper into the fabric. If it is not cleaned, this can become permanent damage.

If you spill something on your couches, try to use water to dab it out. Using a white towel (so no colors from the towel bleed onto the couch), wet part of the towel and press it onto the spot. After that, use a dry part of the towel to press on the spot and absorb as much of the water and spill as possible. This technique can be used on carpet too.

Most importantly, have your couches cleaned at least once a year. It will protect your investment.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call!
