This picture is fairly subtle, but can you tell which side of the sofa has already been cleaned? The right side of the photo is the cleaned side. The sofa in the photo is about 10 years old and has been the favorite napping area for the family's two pugs. Even though its a white sofa we were able to remove years of built-up soil and sand.
The owner said he wasn't expecting much so he was really surprised to see how clean we were able to get his upholstery. This sofa was one of three pieces of furniture we cleaned for him that day. All three looked dramatically different when we were done.
As an upholstery cleaner in Tampa FL, I get a lot of customers who ask me to just get out as much dirt as you can. They really want a good upholstery cleaning but they aren't expecting miracles. We love to see their faces when they see how much soil we were actually able to remove. In this particular upholstery cleaning, we were able to bring the sofa back to almost its original color. I can't say we get that result every time but I can say we get it a lot.
