A Top-rated Upholstery Cleaning Service
While most people, actually all people, have some type of upholstery in their home, and while many types of upholstery are made of soft fabric as well as leather, people are often puzzled as to what to search for when looking for a upholstery cleaning service. Is it a carpet cleaning company that would do this? Or perhaps an upholstery cleaning company that is truly specialized? They often get stuck amidst the blur of DIY (do-it-yourself) home cleaning products, “as if” you want to clean your expensive Italian leather couch yourself. We don’t recommend that!
Many homeowners in affluent communities like Greenwich or Stamford want to “outsource” this headache to a professional who knows the varieties of upholstery and the varieties of fabrics (not to mention has a skilled grasp of how to clean out stains from common upholstery and furnishings) In fact, many people these days suffer from allergies and want a professional upholstery cleaning service to come to their home in Greenwich or New Canaan, and get the job done. The job done, right. We can help. HomeCare by Fabricare is ranked as one of the best upholstery cleaning services in Darien, Fairfield, or Norwalk not just because of our commitment to quality, but because we are a “total solution.” We can clean not only furniture, upholstery, and all types of furnishings (whether of cloth or leather), but also carpets, drapery, upholstery, and even bed linens. If it’s made of cloth or leather and it’s in your home, we can clean it. And because we’re part of the Fabricare family, we can also handle your dry cleaning and laundry needs.
We can set up an appointment, first, to overview your cleaning needs and give you an estimate. Then, assuming you like what you hear, we can schedule a cleaning. It can be as simple as just cleaning the furniture, or it can be as complex as an entire in-home cleaning: the carpets, the rugs, the furniture, the upholstery, the drapes. You name it. We can clean it. Finally, some customers want us to schedule a regular cleaning engagement, so we can come back monthly or quarterly to make sure that your home stays fresh and clean.
Reviewing Your Upholstery Cleaning Needs
Here are the steps to get started. First, simply give us a call. We can discuss over the phone what needs cleaning, and our service area. With our “home bases” in Darien, Fairfield, and Norwalk, the cleaning service area for our upholstery cleaning service is obviously those cities, places within a twenty mile radius, and common cities in Connecticut such as Greenwich or New Canaan. We even go as far South as Scarsdale, Mamaroneck or Port Chester in New York. Next, one of our reps will come out to your home and walk through what needs to be potentially cleaned. He can give you an estimate. Then, on “cleaning day,” we’ll come out and clean it. For some items such as linens or potentially drapes, we’ll have the cleaning done in our plant. For many others such as carpets, rugs, or furniture, we’ll have the cleaning done in your home. Don’t worry. We’ll choose the most efficacious cleaning strategy for your in-home cleaning needs.
And remember: we’re full service. We clean all types of upholstery, but also furnishings, couches, sofas, carpeting and even high-end rugs!
The Etymology of Upholstery
Upholstery is an interesting word, when you think about it. Technically, it refers to the padding or covering on a piece of furniture, but it has come to be a synonym for furniture, especially furniture that is cloth- or leather-based. It was first recorded as used in 1640, and its etymology comes from the verb “upholster.” That is: 1853, back-formation from upholsterer “tradesman who finishes or repairs articles of furniture” (1610s), from upholdester (early 15c.), formed with a diminutive (originally fem.) suffix, from obsolete Middle English noun upholder “dealer in small goods” (early 14c.), from upholden “to repair, uphold, keep from falling or sinking” (in this case, by stuffing);
