Splendid Sofa Cleaning in Gunnersbury

Ecolabels, or third-party seals of approvals, are one of the best bets right now for deciding which household goods are truly green. The Global Ecolabelling Network defines products with ecolabels, not only better for the environment than competitors, but meet more rigorous criteria. To determine a product's worth, these third parties not only evaluate the substances but also compare them to other market competitors. The EPA and Green Seal also have special eco-labels such as the EcoLogo that indicates no known carcinogens or mutagens among the ingredients. If you don't see a third-party stamp on the packaging, check out the list of ingredients. Many times, the closer you get to au naturalé, the more likely they truly are “green.”

Are the proclamations of "natural" and "green" true? One of the trickiest aspects of evaluating the greenness of cleaners is the lack of federal oversight. Manufacturers have no legal obligation to list the ingredients in their entirety since doing so might reveal trade secrets. With more than 80,000 chemical compounds cleared for commercial purposes in the United States, the EPA only requires manufacturers to warn of toxicity. That means your all-natural X Brand cleanser may be slipping in some harmful chemical cousins under the radar. Companies cannot legally mislead consumers about the contents of their products, but there isn't a regulatory agency that defines what meets green standards. Instead, they can voluntarily submit their products for review by the EPA's Design for Environment, Green Seal or other eco-labelling organizations for a stamp of approval.

White, off white, cream-coloured, smooth or polished surface finishes are strong indicators of a dry-clean only material. If you notice a halo, shadow, or a ring where a spill dried strangely this too would indicate that a water base cleaning would not be recommended. Severe water staining, shrinkage, etc. can permanently damage your furniture. So, if it’s not water-based cleanable be sure to have it dry-cleaned.

Beware of online "how-to" websites regarding cleaning leather upholstery yourself. Leather upholstery cleaning or leather furniture cleaning is far more complex than regular cloth upholstery cleaning. There are dozens of different types of leather, each with its own specific step-by-step cleaning procedure. If proper procedures are not followed not only will the procedure leave you with leather that hasn't been cleaned, you can also destroy the surface finish and/or damage the colour of your leather furniture.
