If you live in Warrington and have a fabric couch or a leather sofa that needs cleaning then you’re at the right place.
I have been a professional upholstery cleaner in Warrington for many years and have the experience to help get your sofa back looking great.

The first step when I clean furniture is to determine the fabric or leather type, soiling conditions and the surrounding environment.
As an example, I may be invited to clean an elderly person’s suite, in this instance, I will make sure at least one piece of the suite is fully dry and ready for immediate use once I leave.
The method I choose to deep clean your leather or fabric upholstery will be decided upon arrival at your home – it may be a dry foam clean or a deep steam clean or one of a variety of methods.
A lot of upholstery I clean in Warrington is done using my ‘Vanmount’ machine. This has a lot of power to flush any soil out of the upholstery, combined with plenty of heat and vacuum in order to leave your fabric fresh, clean and dry in no time at all.
Some upholstery such as Draylon or Microfibre sofas is usually dry once I have finished – other fabrics may need up to 12 hrs to dry fully. This will be advised on upon arrival at your home. We can also offer you a leather sofa cleaning service.
Once your upholstery has been cleaned you can be safe in the knowledge there is no sticky residue left as all our upholstery solutions are natural and bio degradable.
I can also help you with carpet cleaning in Warrington upon request.
Leather needs care in order for it to last, one problem I see a lot is the incorrect cleaning of leather carried out by my customers after reading poor advice on the internet.
Bars of soap designed for human skin, hairspray for ink marks, even bathroom cleaners and scouring pads!
Lots of problems can occur from the clear top coat finish being scrubbed away, through to the dye in leather sofas being damaged. We need to figure out what variant of leather you have and then decide on the correct cleaning procedure.
As I can also carry out colour repairs on leather suites, I can usually spot a problem before it happens.
When I see your leather suite I will be able to identify what you have.
In the main, there are 2 different types (although there are variants within these types)
This type of leather is the best to clean and condition. The leather has been stripped of the animals oils, it is then coloured (usually via a spray) a colour such as white, cream, red etc. The leather is then covered in a clear lacquer to help protect the suite.
In this case, I will use a leather cleaning foam by hand, or mechanically using rotating brushes. Once clean I add a blend of wax and oils.
Here the leather has been stripped of oils from the animal, but the natural characteristics are left showing (such as scratches) giving a more natural rustic look.
Rather than being spray coated with colour, aniline leather is dipped in a vat of dye.
These leathers are more tricky to care for, as they are absorbant. They will stain if you spill something on them, and they will also soak in head grease.
These are cleaned with a different type of leather cleaner, but I find adding dye to these suites can help restore the natural look.
