If you offer a professional carpet cleaning service, over 30% of your prospective business can come from cleaning soft furnishing fabrics, curtains and mattresses. If you have a carpet extractor, you probably don’t need any additional equipment to clean upholstery, so offering upholstery cleaning alongside carpet cleaning is a bit of a no brainer.
However, there is a lot more that can go wrong when cleaning soft furnishing fabrics. There are many more different types of fabric, many fabrics contain a mixture of different fibres you’ll need to know about. There are various fabrics that are dry clean only and you need to know how to identify these. We definitely recommend that you do not attempt to clean upholstery without first attending a training course.
The Cleansmart Upholstery Cleaning Course covers:
- Surveying the job
- Fabric Identification
- Fabric construction
- Cleaning chemistry
- What are the risks?
- Common fabric cleaning problems and how to avoid them (dye migration, cellulosic browning etc.)
- High risk fabrics and how to clean them
- Upholstery cleaning methods:
- Wet cleaning method
- Dry cleaning
- Low moisture cleaning
- Low moisture cleaning methods
- Fabric protection treatments
NCCA Approved Upholstery Cleaning Course
Delegates who have attended both our carpet and upholstery cleaning courses can then take the optional NCCA entrance exam (there is a £30 + VAT admin charge for taking the NCCA exam, the NCCA exam is at the end of the upholstery course day). Pass the exam and you are then eligible to apply to join the NCCA – subject to terms & conditions click here for details.
As with our carpet cleaning course, we also include a ‘hands on’ section on the upholstery cleaning course: Please feel free to bring along a cushion or even a small chair etc. to clean on the day. There is plenty of opportunity to ‘have-a-go’ and try various different types of equipment for yourself if you want to – we don’t keep you sat behind a desk all day!
Training course class sizes are small, with a relaxed and informal atmosphere, and we encourage delegates to ask lots of questions!
