Spots, Spills and Stain Removal

Coffee, Tea, Urine, Red Wine, Candle Wax and More – Our spots, spills & stain removal services professionally remove stubborn spots, spills and stains from upholstery and soft surfaces including blood, urine, faeces, vomit, crayons, candle wax, glue, nail polish, cosmetics, cordial, drinks, coffee, tea, red wine and more. Although our technicians are fully trained in stain removal, we cannot guarantee 100% removal of all stains as some spills may result in permanent fabric damage.

Removing Unpleasant Odours

Pet Odours, Urine, Smoke, Mildew, Cigarette Smoke and more – We permanently remove a full spectrum of bad odours by using our ozone Fresh-Applicator, deodorizers and antibacterial agents. Our ozone treatment is most effective as a treatment against stubborn odours. Ozone penetrates all surfaces in the room including carpets, furniture, underlay, curtains and structural materials. Odours are typically caused by bacterial growth; steam cleaning will help to kill these bacteria too.

Carpet & Fabric Protection Treatment

Scotchgard Fabric Protector –  Scotchgard is a colourless spray-on protection for carpets and upholstery. It acts as a barrier against soiling, spills and stains – also preventing germs, bacteria and fungi. Getting your carpets or upholstery treated is an investment as it provides protection that keeps carpets and upholstery looking cleaner for a longer.

Clean more than just your upholstery!

Our Uphostery Cleaning Process

We conduct a pre-inspection of areas that require cleaning. We assess any problem stains and areas and identify the best possible cleaning solution.

In order to achieve a better result, it is essential that the upholstery is vacuumed prior to cleaning. We pre-vacuum using an industrial grade hepa filter vacuum cleaner with superior suction to ensure the removal of as much dry dirt as possible.

A pre-spray shampoo is applied prior to the steam cleaning. Spots and stains are separately treated by using a wide range of specialised stain removers. We help protect your health and that of our staff by minimising exposure to harmful chemicals. We use eco-friendly cleaning materials that are environmentally responsible.

After the vacuuming and pre-treatment, we proceed with a pre-wash steam cleaning of the furniture. Pressured hot water steam is used to penetrate deep inside the furniture. Together with a powerful suction process, virtually all dirt and grime is lifted out. After the pre-wash we steam clean the furniture again where we apply a special biodegradable cleaning solution to remove age build-up dirt and stains.

To sanitise and to address odour problems in your upholstery may require an application of deodorizer or antibacterial agent. We use deodorisers that can permanently remove any unwanted odour. The odour absorption products work to neutralise most odours including pet smell, urine, smoke, mildew and more. These deodorisers and antibacterial products are non-toxic, non-flammable and environmentally safe.

Here at Local Cleaning we opt for Eco-friendly products to also help protect your health and that of our staff by minimising exposure to harmful chemicals. However, if you require specialist stain treatment there may be some instances where a harsher cleaning solution will achieve a better result. After the desired result is obtained by applying these chemicals, we will rinse-wash those affected areas to rinse out these chemicals by using our normal steam cleaning process and friendly biodegradable shampoo.

Our process uses a vacuum system that extracts the rinse water back out of the upholstery. This vacuum extraction extracts over 90% of the water out to leave the surface drier. Your upholstery should be dry within a few hours after the steam cleaning depending on the weather, temperature and humidity conditions. To help the drying process you can open windows and doors to improve air flow or use a fan and a dehumidifier.

If you have concerns about pet odours it is important to consider the affected fabric as well as inside. Pet urine and other odours are typically caused by bacterial growth. Steam cleaning your upholstery will help to kill bacteria and ultimately eliminate odours from the them.

Steam cleaning is a deep clean where as dry cleaning is a surface clean similar to general dry vacuum cleaning. Carpets and upholstery fabrics are made to be cleaned and the steam cleaning method is the most thorough cleaning method and recommended by most carpet and upholstery manufacturers. Over-wetting is the greatest risk in using the steam cleaning process but with our modern machinery and trained staff it is never a concern. In the steam cleaning method chemicals and dirt will dissolve in the rinse water and be sucked out but in the dry cleaning process some of the chemical powder will be unable to be vacuumed up and will remain.
