M-Power & HD for the really dirty areas.One settee has 5 loose back cushions. I was going to charge £ 140 which includes Nano protector.Does this sound reasonable ? Any suggestions welcome Cheers Yvonne
Personally (& without seeing it) I'd be looking at around £180 excluding Protect Nano (plus 35% for protected unless you're giving it away as a special offer).
Bear in mind that some headboards cannot withstand extraction cleaning as the material can be quite thin & rippled & it can be the folds within these ripples that can tear when extracted.
When I do headboards I prefer a low moisture "gentle" approach with M Power & M Power spotter.
Headboards are commonly upholstered in 'curtain-quality' acrylic velour. where body contact soiling is present (especially on folds) the underlying cotton weave can be weakened by the by-products of bacterial decomposition to the extent that they can split if over-stressed. An upholstery mitt and terry towels offer a safer approach or if extracted a curtain tool with a perforated head.
A Minitex may be too aggressive if the fabric is weakened.
