In this study, tests were undertaken to ascertain whether the laser could achieve a better level of cleaning on polyurethane foam than vacuum cleaning. Optimum laser parameters were found using statistics on data from color measurements. The laser proved to be very effective regarding the removal of dust, but also caused damage on some PU-variants. The laser cleaning has been carried out at National Workshops for Arts and Crafts, Copenhagen, Denmark.
