Clean and Protect
Give your upholstery the ultimate deep clean!
Our Clean and Protect service is our most popular service, and with good reason
The Clean and Protect service starts with the same thorough cleaning process you would get with the Clean Only service however we also apply a specialist, invisible and odourless protector. This fabric protector prevents upholstery from absorbing spots or spills from adhering themselves to the fibre surface. As a result spots and spills are a lot easier to remove from the your furniture. The Stainshield fabric protector we use is very similar in the way it works to the way a non-stick frying pan works, and there is a good reason why 90% of frying pans sold today are non stick!
The main benefits of the clean and Protect Service are
- Amazingly Clean Sofas and Chairs
- Protection against Stains
- Upholstery looks cleaner for longer
- Upholstery life is extended
Here is how the Clean and Protect service is performed
We start the cleaning process by inspecting your upholstery and then we select the best cleaning solutions suited to its fibre type and condition. This careful approach means we can achieve the best possible results for your upholstery.
We carefully vacuum your furniture with our professional vacuum cleaner to remove as much dry soils as possible paying special attention to crevices. A thorough deep clean always starts with this step and should never be missed out.
Next we will apply a Pre-treatment to the fabric. This will begin to break the bond between the soils and the fibres. The Pre-spray solution we use will be tailored to the individual needs of your upholstery and the soiling present. By using the correct cleaning solutions we can remove the maximum amount of dirt possible giving fantastic results.
After applying the Pre-treatment we use a brush or soft cloth to work the treatment into and around the fabric fibres. What we use is selected appropriately to the item being cleaned and so will not cause any damage. This agitation phase will not only enhance the cleaning results but will also aid in gently lifting matted fibres and restoring the pile texture.
5) Dwell Time
We then allow the Pre-cleaning solution time to work on the soils in the fabric. In much the same way a baking tray is left to soak before cleaning, the Pre-cleaning solution needs time to work to its maximum effect, separating the maximum amount of soiling from the fibres.
Now we get to the impressive part! Once the soils have been loosened and released from the fibres it is time to remove them completely. To do this we use a powerful extraction machine, mounted in our van, which will suck the dirt up and away from your furniture, via a long hose. At this point you will see a dramatic difference in your upholstery, it will look clean, revitalised and brighter.
7) Stain Treatment
During the cleaning process we will also treat any spots, spills and stains. Many spots and marks will be removed by the cleaning process described above. Some stains however will require specialist treatments. We are trained in specialist spot and stain treatments and will apply this knowledge in the correct way to achieve the maximum results possible.
When the cleaning process is complete we groom the fabric with a specially designed brush to remove any imperfections created by the cleaning process leaving the fibres aligned and looking fresh and revitalised!
At this stage we apply our specialist fabric protector, this forms an invisible, odourless shield around each and every fibre making spots, spills and stains much easier to remove keeping your sofas and chairs looking fantastic for longer and extending their life by years.
Finally we leave a fan pointing at the item we have cleaned. This accelerates the drying time of the fabric. The amount of moisture each type of fibre absorbs varies tremendously so it is difficult to give an exact drying time, however as a general rule upholstery cleaned in the morning is normally dry and ready to sit on by the evening.
“I had forgotten what the original colour of our dining room chairs looked like until Robin worked his magic on them. We also had two sofas cleaned and despite the range of stains they had on them and their general tiredness, they have been transformed. I would thoroughly recommend Robin for his hard work and effectiveness as well as his general attitude towards doing a job well.”

“We rang Robin Ray LTD to quote for cleaning our sofa and were so pleased with the price we booked him straight away to do the job. He arrived on time and worked very efficiently with an amazing result to our sofa, which has been well used by two cats, a dog and not to mention us!! And now it looks like new. We would recommend Robin Ray to anyone who needs a professional cleaning job done at a sensible price.”
“Robin Ray did a very thorough job on my carpets and sofa recently. In the case of a particularly stubborn stain on the sofa, he didn’t give up but came back and tried several different methods until successfully removing it. I was very pleased with the results and my sofa looks as good as new.”
“Thank you Robin for your excellent service. I thought it would be impossible to clean my Chinese rug that I had used as a door mat. After just a couple of days you brought it back to me in pristine condition. I was truly amazed. Not only that but some years ago you made a fantastic job of cleaning my windows. AND, you helped me to fix a hose with which I was having trouble. You really are a star, thank you.”
