Upholstery cleaning may seem easy enough to do, but if a homeowner hires a group of amateurs to do it, the results may be disastrous. Deep sanitation and debris removal can’t be done with any vacuum, so any company that shows up to the home should have all of the equipment and expertise to do the job right. The best way for a homeowner to check this is to only take on a business that is certified.
There are dozens of sanitation services in every major metro, and finding the ideal fit can take some time. This can be made easier by checking out a database that keeps track of certified upholstery cleaning organizations. The go- to place for this is the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, or IICRC. The IICRC is the agency that monitors and updates all standards within the industry. They update the guidelines to proper sanitation regularly, and any group that follows them to the letter is doing their job right. King’s Cleaning Services has been a certified firm with IICRC for more than 13 years.
Another major reason to only take on a certified business is that they are more likely to have specialists that can handle other tasks common to an upholstery cleaning group. These may include carpet sanitation, fire or water damage cleanup, or carpet inspection. Often, a homeowner needs several of these services at the same time, so farming them all out to one operation can reduce the price dramatically and abbreviate the time it takes to get it done.
In short, it is best to stay from companies that look amateurish and lack proper certification. Those that are trained to take care of fabrics will have a cadre of workers that have all attended courses, and are equipped with top of the line machines that are also approved by the IICRC.
King’s Cleaning Services is the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula’s highest certified firm. You can’t go wrong with selecting them to be your cleaning service.
