Outdoor Furniture Cleaning For The Boston Area & Cape Cod
Alec’s Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning specializes in the cleaning of outdoor upholstery. Whether it’s your poolside cushions or just your porch furniture. Most of your better outdoor cushions are upholstered in a fabric such as Sunbrella, which is a solution-dyed polyester fiber. This fabric is far superior to most fabrics for their usage in an outdoor environment but they do need proper care and cleaning since they can deteriorate after normal use and exposure to the elements.
The proper way to ensure that your outdoor Sunbrella cushions last a long time and are always in their best condition is to wipe any spills or stains immediately as well as brushing off any pollen and debris and take them in every night. Unfortunately, most people will leave their outdoor cushions out day and night.
Even though a polyester fiber will not support the growth of mold, due to all the soiling and residual left on the fibers they may not only become soiled, mold can grow on these substances and bond to the fabric. Besides normal soil and mold, there is always pollen, bird droppings, and even sun tanning oils that we cover our body with before sitting or lying on our outdoor furniture. The combination of all these issues will require the need for a professional upholstery cleaner to ensure they are cleaned properly as well as the removal of all the mold and finished properly to give you years of future usage.
Besides the cleaning of outdoor cushions made with Sunbrella, manufacturers recommend the application of a fluorocarbon stain shield fabric protective treatment to ensure both the ease in removal of future soil as well as the water repellency replacement factor to your cushions.
Alec's Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning will pick up all your outdoor cushions at the end of the season and bring them to our plant where we can restore them to look like new again. Whether you live in Boston, the suburbs of Wellesley, Weston, and Hingham, or on Cape Cod, we cover all these areas regularly. In our plant we will remove all soil, stains, pollen, oils, and mold that are present on your cushions, then rinse them to remove any residual, providing you with the cleanest possible cushion. As part of the finishing process, we will then apply a fluorocarbon finish, which enhances water repellency and future stain removal. We then wrap each outdoor cushion in clear plastic for storage. Next, we schedule a convenient time to deliver them back to you ready for you to use again for your first outing in the spring.
