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!

This upholstery did not look that dirty before I started cleaning it. Couches and love seats are designed to hide the oil and dirt that is on it. Regular cleaning will help prevent permanent damage to the fabric.

For the best service possible, call Carpet Geek!

What is a reputation worth? My Google reviews.

 One of the things I am proud of is the reputation I have worked so hard to get. A referral is the best way to find a service or product. I have built my business with the referrals from many satisfied customers. I strive to give the kind of service that people want to tell their friends about.
This is a few of the online reviews that I have gotten lately:
 Tammi ‎ – Oct 4, 2011

As a property management business we rely on the quality of work from other private companies to reflect on our own. Carpet Geek does an excellent job and I am always proud to refer their services! Charlie is honest, prompt and reliable and I appreciate him and his service. If you want great service and an honest opinion, Charlie is the person you want. We use Charlie for business and for our personal home. I highly recommend Carpet Geek!

Chris ‎ – Oct 3, 2011

The Carpet Geek is the BEST! Talk about personal service! Charlie doesn’t just send someone else to take care of your carpet, he does it himself. He cares about his reputation and works hard to make sure you’re always satisfied. Any time we have our carpets cleaned, we always call Charlie. He does a great job.

Theresa ‎ – Sep 30, 2011

I have had the Carpet Geek out to my house many times. Charlie has been able to remove hard dirt and oil stains and pet accidents. I would recommend The Carpet Geek to anyone. I have recommended Charlie to my friends. And they were very pleased with the results. I will not call any other carpet cleaning company to my home. And the prices are very reasonable. Call the Carpet Geek for fast, friendly and professional service.

Michelle ‎ – Sep 12, 2011

I’ve had Charlie out to my home three or four times now. I am so glad my friend recommended him. Appointments are always easy to make and he is always prompt. When he is done my carpets look FANTASTIC! It is so nice to have the peace of mind in knowing that whatever my family might do to the carpet, I know the Carpet Geek will be able to take care of it!

Gail ‎ – Sep 4, 2011

I highly recommend Charlie, owner and operator of Carpet Geek. Charlie is prompt to answer his phone to schedule an appointment. He has been our exclusive carpet cleaner for several years. Charlie has always been on time, courteous, professional, and detailed oriented each time. The carpet always looks terrific when he finishes. He has also detailed our vehicle and cleaned the grout in our tile. We have never been disappointed with his work.

Debra ‎ – Aug 19, 2011

Charles does an amazing job of cleaning. He is thorough with the carpets and protective of the furniture. You would think it was his furniture. He arrives on time and is courteous, clean and polite. Definitely a go getter! 🙂

Michele ‎ – Aug 18, 2011

Carpet Geek is the best in the business. If you are looking for someone who knows what they are doing and does it right the first time, Charlie is the one to do it. We have also had him clean our upholstery, and stretch the carpet in many bedrooms. VERY highly recommended!

Bryan ‎ – Aug 17, 2011

It is hard these days to find someone that takes pride in their work. Charlie clearly loves what he does and the final product and his customer service are testaments to this philosophy! An honest and fair price. You wouldn’t know that my carpets had seven years of wear, tear, pets and a toddler working them over – they look factory new now. Recommended!

Tamara ‎ – Aug 4, 2011

Charlie is the best! He’s friendly, affordable and always puts in an extra effort. Every time he cleans my carpets he will go the extra mile to make sure everything looks amazing. I had asked him to clean a couple spots on my couch when he was done with the carpets and he didn’t even charge me. I’d highly recommend him!

We would love to add you to our list of satisfied customers.

Satisfaction guaranteed! If you don’t like it, return it for a full refund!

You hear these sales pitches every day, but what do they really mean? Does the product really solve your problems and will it really make your life easier? Will you really wonder how you ever lived without it?

Whenever I hear one of these claims on the TV, I always have to look and try to read the fine print at the bottom of the screen as it flashes faster than I can blink.

When I enter a customer’s home, I want them to know that satisfaction guaranteed really means satisfaction guaranteed. In will inspect the job and thoroughly explain any concerns that I have and let the customer know what they can expect.

After I perform the cleaning, I always let the customer know that if they have any questions, concerns, of are not satisfied, to call me. I will come back as soon as possible (usually that day or the next) and address the problem. I never want anyone to feel dissatisfied with spending their hard earned money on my services.

You can rest assured that I will do the best job that can be done! I don’t cut corners, I clean them.

If you ever have any questions of want me to come out to your home for a free estimate, don’t hesitate to call!

Upholstery Cleaning

Leave a comment

An often overlooked item for cleaning in the home is upholstery. It seems that most people don’t think about getting their upholstery cleaned until it is showing signs of soil build up. Just like carpet, it is easier to remove the soil from upholstery before it gets excessively dirty. If you have a favorite chair that you like to sit in to read the paper or watch TV, it is probably dirtier than you realize. The newspaper print is getting on it, drinks are getting spilled on it, and the oil from your body is being absorbed into it.

Call to have your upholstery cleaned today! Don’t wait until it is too late.
