Portable equipment is not as powerful and takes a very skilled and caring technician to use it effectively.
Synthetic fabrics can withstand temperatures of 220ºF, but wool should never be cleaned any hotter than 180ºF. Some delicate fabrics require cool temperatures.

We strongly recommend that you vacuum beforehand, though it’s not mandatory. If you don’t vacuum, please make sure all visible debris is removed. We will move most furniture if necessary and within reason. Therefore, bookcases, fish tanks, armoires, etc. will not be moved. Please remove all fragile items and décor, so we don’t accidentally damage any of your belongings.
If you have certain spots of concern, let us know so we can give them special treatment. Also, we’re animal-lovers, but if you don’t think your pet will love us, please put him or her in a separate area for safety purposes.
Our cleaning process will remove most, if not all, of the usual odors. Some other odors that are more stubborn, like from pets, can linger, which can be knocked out with a deodorizer.
