Upholstery Cleaning 

It isn’t just your carpets that get dirty. Though you don’t walk on your sofas, loveseats, accent chairs, or dining chairs, the upholstery throughout your home can get stained and grimy over time, prompting the need for a cleaning that will restore the look and feel of your furniture.

Why clean your upholstery? There are a number of reasons:

  • Maintaining the appearance – Of course, you want your upholstery to look good, especially if you enjoy entertaining. Regular cleaning eliminates stains and everyday dirt, and also keeps your furniture smelling fresh.
  • Safer for children and pets – As with carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning can help eliminate bacteria and allergens, which can make your family (and your furry friends) sick or can aggravate allergies and asthma.
  • Deep cleaning – While it might be easy to eliminate stains from spills with an over-the-counter cleaner (depending on what was spilled)., upholstery cleaning by a professional literally goes deeper, addressing what’s underneath the fabric as well.
  • Saving money – Furniture can be quite expensive and chances are you’ve spent plenty on your upholstered pieces. With regular cleaning, furniture lasts longer and you won’t need to replace it as often.

Upholstery cleaning can be a tricky process. After all, furniture fabrics vary and the technique used to clean them does as well.

So, if you’ve looked at your upholstery and have determined that it requires some sprucing up, don’t just grab the first can of upholstery cleaning spray you see on your supermarket shelf. Instead, hire a company that can get the job done currently without doing any harm to your furniture.

Why Is Cleaning Your Upholstery Important?

Get Rid Of Dust, Bacteria & Germs

You might not realize it, but your upholstered furniture is a haven for dust and bacteria. It’s made of cloth and hidden away from the typical vacuum and dusting you do in most rooms of your home. It’s easy for dust and other materials to get trapped in your soft furniture, and regular cleaning is an effective solution.

Keep Your Soft Furniture Supple

Cloth upholstery is soft, but it can get brittle and easily crack or tear if it’s not cared for. Prolonged exposure to the sun, dirt and grime can make upholstery materials brittle. Cleaning your furniture regularly with gentle upholstery cleaners will keep it soft and help prevent tearing or cracking.

Extend The Life Of Your Upholstery

All furniture is subjected to use and wear and tear, and the same goes for upholstered furniture. If you clean your upholstery regularly, it can last for a very long time. You will be able to prolong the life of your upholstery and save money in the long run.

Upholstery Cleaning Before & Afters


Do you have to clean your couch?

Although you don’t absolutely have to clean your couch, we recommend that you include couch cleaning into your regular cleaning schedule (quarterly, or yearly). That way, you can ensure that your couch is always looking, smelling, and feeling great. Not to mention removing allergens, bacteria, and other harmful substances that might be hiding in the fibres of your couch.

How much does it cost to clean an upholstered chair?

Just like the cost of cleaning a couch, pricing depends on several factors. The size of your couch/chair, the amount of work needed, and whether you need to remove anything out of it are just some things that affect the price. Our technicians will provide an accurate quote after they have had a chance to look at your furniture in person.

How much does it cost to clean a sofa?

The cost of cleaning a sofa depends on several factors. An accurate quote can’t be given without seeing your sofa first. Some common factors that affect the price are the materials it’s made out of, how many pieces there are in total, and how much work is needed to remove anything stored inside it.

Does steam cleaning a couch work?

Steam cleaning is a great way to maintain your couch. Using steam to clean upholstered furniture is like using hot water or other liquids, but without the risk of staining or damaging fabrics. Using high-pressure steam can remove grime, allergens, bacteria, and other harmful substances.

How do professionals clean upholstery?

Depending on the extent of the damage or soiling, some steps are taken to ensure that the couch is as clean as possible. The initial dry-cleaning process might involve vacuuming, and applying a pre-treatment on areas with stubborn stains or dirt. Then, if needed, our technicians will use specialized tools (extraction machines) to remove dirt and water/liquid from inside the upholstery.

How often should you get your upholstery cleaned?

The best way to maintain your couch is by getting it professionally cleaned once or twice per year. This will ensure that it’s always looking, smelling, and feeling great. Not to mention removing allergens, bacteria, and other harmful substances that might be hiding in the fibres of your couch.

How long does it take to clean a couch?

The time needed to clean a couch depends on several factors, such as the overall size, the number of pieces it is divided into, and how dirty or soiled it is. Our technicians will provide an accurate quote after they have had a chance to look at your furniture in person.

A general rule of thumb, however, is 2-3 hours for a 3-seater and 3-4 hours for a 4-seater.

Is steam cleaning good for upholstery?

Steam cleaning is one of the best ways to clean upholstery. Using steam allows for deep cleaning, while also ensuring that the fabrics are not damaged or discoloured by harsh chemicals (which is why many people opt for dry-cleaning).


Does steam cleaning remove smells?

Steam cleaning is one of the best ways to remove bad odours from upholstery. When steam passes through, it heats up and opens the fabric’s fibres. This allows for the smells to be pulled out along with any other substances that might have penetrated your couch (like dirt, grime, bacteria).

Does steam cleaning damage furniture?

Steam cleaning furniture rarely damages it. The heat used in steam cleaning is significantly lower than what’s used with dry-cleaning, which means that there is no risk of oxidizing fabrics (a common problem with dry-cleaning).
