Your Upholstery Cleaning Questions Answered

How often should my upholstered furniture be cleaned?

The frequency with which upholstered furniture needs to be cleaned depends upon several factors. The first is the manufacturer’s recommendations. Typically, manufacturers advise having upholstered furniture professionally cleaned every 24-48 months. 

However, if you have kids and pets in your home, you may want to up the frequency with which your pieces are cleaned. In addition, if any people within your household have allergies or asthma, cleaning upholstery more often may help alleviate some of their symptoms.


Is the process for upholstery cleaning similar to the process for carpet cleaning?

Upholstery is even more delicate than carpet, meaning it needs to be handled with care when being cleaned. Additionally, it can be damaged when excess water is used in the cleaning process. 

That’s what makes our proprietary Hot Carbonating Extraction process such a great option for cleaning upholstery as well as carpets. As part of this process, we use a carbonated solution that releases dirt and dust from upholstery fibers. Then, we extract these contaminants and the liquid solution to leave your furniture clean without the need for excess water or harsh scrubbing.


Why is it important to have my upholstery professionally cleaned?

Even in homes that are carpeted, upholstered furniture plays a major role in trapping dust, allergens, and other airborne particles. Because professional upholstery cleaning is so thorough, it is the right choice for your hardworking furniture. 

Our professional technicians can help your upholstered furniture filter harmful contaminants from the air. Regular cleanings ensure the upholstery isn’t overwhelmed with dust and debris. Moreover, we’ll leave your upholstery looking, feeling, and smelling great, something that simply can’t be said of conventional DIY methods.


Can stains be removed from my upholstery through professional cleaning?

Yes! Our upholstery cleaning services can remove some of the toughest stains, including stains resulting from pet accidents. We use innovative processes that gently remove the root causes of stains. 

Plus, we can help protect your furniture from future spills and accidents with our Protectant Package, which boosts the stain resistance of upholstered fabrics and provides a protective barrier for their delicate fibers.


How long will it take for my furniture to dry following upholstery cleaning?

Because our Hot Carbonating Extraction process does not rely on excess water usage, your furniture will dry faster with our services than with conventional cleaning techniques. For most of our clients, their furniture dries within a matter of hours. However, for certain fabrics or particularly soiled pieces, drying may also need to take place overnight.
