Jim Pemberton
I received a series of emails and calls this week from two different fine fabric specialists about gross contamination of cushions on upholstery. Specifically vomit and urine. In each case, a guest in the home was the source of the "contamination". The major difference in each was not the contaminant, but the type of fiber in the fabric, the value of the furnishing to the customer, and the risk the cleaners were taking. . . . keep reading

Upholstery Spot Removal Warnings
Jim Pemberton
Holiday gatherings always increase the likelihood of spills in the home. At these times its vitally important to remember that fine fabric upholstery cannot be treated like carpet or clothing, and that more damage is caused by attempts to remove spots than the spots themselves. Here are a few tips to share with your customers (and to remember yourself!) . . . keep reading

Opportunities for Fine Fabric Restoration Specialists
Jim Pemberton
The restoration of soft content items after smoke damage is an art that is not well understood by most fire damage restoration contractors today. Years back, when the restoration industry was served mostly by cleaning companies that grew into the restoration business, the cleaning and restoration of soft content items, specifically upholstered fabrics, was often done successfully. . . . keep reading

It's Not Your Problem!
Jim Pemberton
STOP RIGHT NOW! Graveyards are full of heroes! Before you let your emotions lead you down some very dangerous paths, think about what you are about to do. Most of the problems listed require strong chemicals, aggressive mechanical action, and somewhat risky procedures that could cause even more damage than the original problem. . . . keep reading

Remarkable Class at Pembertons
Jim Pemberton
We had the opportunity to have a leading expert on water damage restoration, Chuck Dewald, speak to our customers on May 29th. I had heard that he was an outspoken, somewhat controversial character, and that in some cases suppliers and other industry leaders found his comments and approach to be negative. We did not find any of those concerns to be valid! . . . keep reading

Jim Pemberton
Upholstery fabrics have undergone dramatic changes in fiber, texture, and weave in the last few years. Microfiber has become one of the main fabrics of choice. You can hardly find Haitian cotton anymore. Velvets are rare, too. The Handi-Brush from Groom Industries now becomes the perfect upholstery grooming and agitation brush for almost every application. . . . keep reading

Jim Pemberton
I recently read a post on the Cleanfax Bulletin Board where a respected cleaner shared his frustration with the seemingly endless list of traffic lane preconditioning agents and detergents offered for carpet cleaning. His concerns made me take a hard look at what products are made available for upholstery cleaning. . . . keep reading
