Even if your upholstery doesnt look dirty, it can get that way over time, especially if you have small children or pets. Small dirt particles infiltrate fibres and can slowly cause miniscule tears. Food and drinks then get dropped and all that can take years off of the life of your sofa. Additionally, microscopic bugs can burrow themselves into your sofa and make themselves at home, causing trouble for those who suffer with asthma or other breathing and skin conditions.
If you choose to clean your upholstery yourself, you may be tempted to use a shop bought, ready made solution that you spray directly onto the material. A lot of these products contain toxins, such as acetone or other harmful chemicals like solvents, which can depress the central nervous system and cause epilepsy, as well as breathing difficulties and skin irritation. Some of them even contain nitrilotriacetic acid, which is a potential carcinogen.
Here at Botley Carpet Cleaners we will only ever use 100% environmentally friendly products. None of our products contain any of these harmful chemicals. They are applied in the pre-clean process and all residues and dirt are then flushed away with clean fresh water leaving no nasties behind on your furnishings.
