How to Clean Crypton Fabric: Extraction Cleaning

As resilient as they are stain-resistant, Crypton fabrics are made to hold up to frequent cleaning. There’s a reason that over 1.5 million yards of Crypton fabrics have been installed in major hotel and restaurant installations as well as healthcare environments, offices and other public places. These high-traffic areas require regular cleanings of both their hard and soft surfaces. Even Crypton Home fabrics, specially designed for residential use, can be cleaned as often as desired and never lose their ability to resist stains, spills and odors. That’s because the performance technology in Crypton fabrics occurs at a molecular level. The performance properties become a part of the character of the fibers themselves, so their protective nature is inherent and can never wash or wear away.

The following extraction cleaning method for stain removal can be used for most medium or ground-in stains and for overall maintenance:

  1. Prepare the upholstery using the spot-cleaning method to pre-treat any spots. Vacuum the upholstery to remove any loose debris.
  2. Prepare a cleaning solution by reading the instructions on the chosen extraction concentrate bottle to include the proper dilution ratio.
  3. Pour the solution into the tank.
  4. Apply solution to fabric by spraying with the upholstery wand sprayer.
  5. Vacuum up the solution with the upholstery wand vacuum nozzle.
  6. Allow fabric to air-dry.
  7. If any stains remain, repeat the process (some stains are more difficult to remove than others).
