We will first test the fiber to determine whether it needs to be wet cleaned or dry cleaned, synthetic or natural fibers, and whether it is colorfast. We then vacuum the upholstery thoroughly. The fabric may or may not require pre-spray, but if it does, we will apply pre-spray and work it in with an upholstery brush to suspend the soil.
