The cleaning and restoration of patio furniture cushions and related textiles

On July 5, 2011, a massive dust storm, known as a Haboob, rolled into the Phoenix metro area, blanketing everything in its wake with a fine layer of sand.

Given that Arizona has the largest number of swimming pools per capita in the USA, it's axiomatic that everyone's patio furniture cushions and associated textiles ended up covered by a fine layer of sand.

So what to do?

Many resorted to the obvious: wash off those patio cushions and related textiles with a garden hose.

There was just one problem: after drying in the sun, the cushion covers exhibited dirty "tide rings" reminiscent of the sea washing up on a sandy beach. Fact is, in many cases, instead of washing the sand off, the water spray caused the sand to embed deeper in the fibers.

So what to do?

Many called up RAVE FabriCARE. After all, if we can gently clean and restore a $10,000 formal dress splattered with red wine, we can certainly clean and restore your patio furniture cushions and related textiles.

Truth is, not only could we remove all the "tide rings" but also all of the oil stains that had accumulated over the years as a result of the build up of tanning creams and lotions.

You can trust RAVE FabriCARE to restore your patio furniture cushions and associated textiles to their original, albeit sun faded beauty.

    Arizona is famous for it's dessert scape and swimming pools. When the wind blows, a fine thin layer of sand effects every single thing of the area. The sofas, the pillows, every single sitting becomes messed up. Now to resolve this issue, the RAVE FabriCARE company provides services to remove these and other stains from pillows and sofas. The above mentioned tutorial shows the condition of pillows and sofas before and after the treatment and the results are amazing as the pillows and sofas become new and fresh after cleaning.
