Upholstery Cleaning NYC – Common Fabrics Found in Homes

Upholstery Cleaning NYC

When it comes to interior decorating, you may not always consider how easy or difficult it is to clean your chosen designer fabrics. Expressing your personal taste is important in your interior décor, but it doesn’t hurt to know what to watch for when you’re selecting a piece of furniture, style of drape or carpet material so you know what will work best for your particular use and needs. Furthermore, you’ll want to know how to clean your fabrics. Embassy Cleaners is here to help with all your upholstery cleaning NYC needs!

Main types of fabrics

There’s a nearly endless variety of fabrics to choose from when decorating your home. Some materials are rough while others are soft to the touch, and their feel doesn’t necessarily indicate how easy they are to clean or their durability. As you’re selecting fabrics for your furniture and drapes, remember to ask yourself what the purpose of it is and how much use it will get. Delicate fabrics on furniture may look lovely but won’t necessarily stand up to use, and lightweight material for drapes let the light in but don’t provide proper insulation against heating and cooling loss. Despite how confusing it can seem, there are two types of fabrics: synthetic fabrics and natural fabrics. And no matter what kind of fabric, we are the top service provider for upholstery cleaning NYC.

Synthetic fabrics

The origins of most synthetic fabrics were to serve as a replacement/imitation for natural fabrics. Imitations of silk include rayon and acetate, and an imitation of wool is acrylic fabric. To prevent wrinkling and staining, manufacturers usually blend polyester and nylon with other fabrics. An ideal synthetic fabric choice for upholstery is one that’s durable and wears well under various conditions.

Natural fabrics

Natural fiber fabrics certainly have their place in interior design, but fabrics such as silk and linen soil quickly and don’t stand up to heavy wear. For easy to clean natural fabrics, consider leather or its less expensive counterpart, vinyl. Cotton, wool, and cotton blends are natural fibers that are durable, wear-resistant, and relatively easy to clean.

Research options

As you’re choosing materials for your upholstery, drapes, and carpet, research all your options before making a final decision. If you like the look of an original fabric but know it won’t work for your needs, investigate other choices in a similar color, texture, and pattern and never settle for mediocre. High-quality materials last longer with proper care and if you’re ever in doubt about the proper way to clean your décor, leave it to the experts and avoid potential damage.

Embassy is so far above other places I’ve used that I regret not discovering them sooner. Not only is the quality of their service exceptional (right down to the hangers they use), but they’re also environmentally conscious, and so friendly. The service is efficient and they communicate well when your items are ready for pickup. I can’t say enough good things about them.
