Carlson Pillow Service cleans, disinfects, and deodorizes the feathers in your pillows without removing any of their oil. We can also accomplish this for a very reasonable price.
Feather pillows give great comfort and natural support to the neck and head because of the feathers ability to retain their shape. Feather pillows conform to the contour of your neck, while staying firm enough to hold up the shape in a desired sleeping position. You may hear the term 'down' when referring to feather pillows. Down is a light, fluffy fill which retains maximum warmth and volume. The right mixture of down and feathers creates the ideal pillow with a great balance in firmness, warmth, and fluffy volume.
A good goose feather pillow, often considered the Cadillac of pillows, should last 60-100 years with the proper care. Here are some of the reasons most of them don't:
- Every time a pillow is washed or steam cleaned, the feathers lose between 10 and 15 years of their usefulness.
- Feathers depend on the oil in them for their life and softness. Washing or steam cleaning removes oil from them, shortening their usable life.
- Getting a pillow cleaned and covered in a new fabric ticking, can extend the useful life by many years.
Carlson Pillow Service has the necessary equipment to not only clean your feather pillows the correct way but to do it reasonably. The cleaning machine is mounted in a mobile unit and the work is completed on site while you wait. SAME DAY SERVICE!
This machine will clean, disinfect, and deodorize the feathers without removing any of their oil. With it's tumbling action the feathers are fluffed by rotating brushes which will remove the chaff and dust to a grate in the bottom of the drum and subjects the feathers to an Ultra-Violet, ozone emitting light produced by powerful Germicidal bulbs set into the top of the drum. The feathers then are put into a deodorizing chamber. Your feathers are NOT mixed with any other customer's feathers. You receive all of your own feathers back with no feather loss. This is all amazingly accomplished in 5 minutes!
