How to Clean Area Rugs

Viscose, or art silk, has the same soft, luxurious look and feel as silk, but at a much more affordable price.

Viscose is extremely absorbent so remove stains using a damp cloth and a mild cleanser. For tough stains, use the stain solution suggested above and gently apply the foam that rises to the top to the stained area. Blot with a clean damp cloth to finish.

Fabric Protection and Fabric Finishing with FiberCare Cleaning Services

Fine Fabric Cleaning and Protection - Cottage

What is FiberCare?

FiberCare is an invisible, long-lasting finish that protects against spots, stains and spills. FiberCare works by impregnating fibers with co-polymer resins in a mineral spirit base. This means dust and dirt can’t get trapped within the fiber.

How Do We Clean?

The best way to clean is with water. If your fabric can be wet cleaned that is how we will clean it. First we will vacuum, then we will pre-spray spots to loosen that particular type of stain.

To dry clean furnishings we pre-spray in small areas with the dry cleaning solvent, we employ several different techniques to remove spots and heavily soiled areas.

Flameproofing

Our state of the art chemical formulations and application techniques are environmentally safe, non-toxic and solvent dry cleanable. Certificate of flame repellant furnished with every paid order.

Stain Repellent

FiberCare can be applied to all fibers, even those that have been temporarily protected with mill level finishes such as Scotchguard or Teflon. FiberCare protects against both oil-based and water-based stains.

Lamination

A soft, protective, transparent vinyl film is laminated to the face of the fabric, this protects fabric from staining. With laminated fabric, spills clean up easily with a damp cloth.

Mildew Guard

This provides a mildew inhibitor and fungicide for fabrics exposed to damp climates.

Acrylic Backing

Acrylic Backing is an acrylic coating applied to the backside of fabrics. This backing increases the life and durability of the fabric by 50-100%. Acrylic backing stops seam slippage, prevents unraveling and adds dimensional stability.

Furniture and Fabric Protection

Thirty-Five Years in Business

Fabric Protection and Cleaning

When I was 30 years old I started FiberCare Inc., not because I always wanted to be in business but because I didn’t want to teach, I didn’t want to look for a job, and I loved the fabric protection and service business.

Here it is 35 years later and we are still going strong with a high end cleaning business added on.

I could toot my own horn saying most businesses fail in the early years, or even brag that even with a Master’s degree I had never had a business class. I didn’t even know which was net and which was gross, to my Father’s chagrin. So, what was the secret to creating a long lasting business?

The first thing is obvious, hard work. I worked hard during the week and spent the weekends doing paperwork with no computer just a calculator and a few friends doing secretarial duties.

The second thing, was customer service, I offer/ offered a terrific product and caring for my customer was always most important. The third thing was integrity.

I learned quickly that everyday in business is an integrity test. Would I give this designer a bigger referral fee just because my competitor would? Would I give this customer a discount because they were trying to intimidate me by losing a big job if I didn’t ? Would I allow a furniture store to use my company’s good name (FiberCare) but charge inflated prices?

These morality questions weighed hard on me the first months in business, I didn’t like it that everyday I had to deal with these emotional dilemmas. So I made a decision. Integrity is black and white, just like the truth. I would ALWAYS take the high road, my company would always have integrity. I would not be intimidated by the very rich, I would not have my arm twisted by the powerful furniture stores and I will not be threatened by fear or blackmailed by what someone will write on the Internet.

So, thank you to my clients, my designers, my friends, my trusted employees and Patrick, who have all contributed to 35 great years of taking excellent care of your fine furnishings. I have a computer now, I don’t work all weekend anymore but integrity, that hasn’t changed. It’s still black and white.

Sincerely,
Joan Friedman
