Professional Upholstery Cleaners
At Your Service
There are several types of upholstery. These types are:
- pillows and mattress (usually made of innerspring or upholstered foam)
- upholstered furniture with fabric such as upholstered dining chairs, armchairs, loveseats, couches, sofas, and sectionals.
- upholstery chairs
- upholstery drapes
- upholstered benches (quite similar to sofas, but somewhat wider and commonly used in churches or auditoriums)
- upholstery headboards (it has a fabric on the back that cloaks an entire wall then is attached to a metal frame with wooden legs at the bottom)
- upholstery ottomans
- upholstered booths
- Some home items with upholstery can also be seen outside on patio sets or barbecues.
Upholstery requires peculiar cleaning since they are materials that can get dirty rapidly due to all the regular contact with bodily fluids. At least every six months upholstery should be cleaned due to the fact that bacteria can build up speedily in these materials. Upholstered furniture also requires some deep cleaning when it has been in a smoky room or has been in contact with pets.
Upholstery is also in need of deep cleaning when it is no longer in use and you put up the furniture for sale, donation or store it away for a really long period of time. Special care should be given to upholstery fabrics because they can be destroyed by water so they require special upholstery cleaners.
Special care should also be given to upholstered sofas and mattresses because they are made of springs and/or foam that cannot endure a lot of moisture owing largely to their absorbent nature. A lot of mattresses hardly require any form of special chemical treatment or spot cleaning except they are contaminated past wearability.
Mattresses need special attention too since they have upholstery and also due to the additional fabric coverings that can get filthy such as sheets or comforters. It would be wise to consider removing these stains by dry cleaning with a mattress cleaner machine which has powerful suction for that reason. We sometimes advise that the best option is dry cleaning since it will definitely remove the dirt and debris from deep inside the fiber where a vacuum cleaner or steam cleaner cannot reach. A technician performs upholstery dry cleaning and will use a gas-powered machine with powerful suction and heated air to pull out the dirt from deep within the fibers.
If the need arises, we may call upon our upholsterer – a skilled professional, who renovates furniture upholstery to a fresh new condition. The upholsterers at our service clean and repair sofas, mattresses, and chairs as well as office desks, cubicles and other objects with upholstery.
After upholstery cleaning is performed, the furniture will have a fresh new look that can last for a good number of years.

Upholstery Cleaning Processes

Professional upholstery cleaning is targeted at upholstery that is soiled, stained or damaged.
The chemical or cleaning mixture used for cleaning upholstery penetrates into the fabric and disintegrates dirt. After soaking for a few minutes, upholstery items are rinsed rigorously to remove any remnant of dirt left behind. Solutions for dry cleaning of upholstered furniture can be applied through dry-cleaning
- Identifying the type of stain(s) is the first step in the process of upholstery cleaning, using a pre-approved cleaner for that kind of stain. Our professional cleaners can check for dirt and dust, and pet hair in the upholstery, right before the cleaning process begins.
- Treating it again as necessary is the next step, this is done until the stains are gone. Our professional upholstery cleaners mostly use different types or grades of chemical agents which is also dependent on what type of stain is come across. This cleaning process is akin to carpet cleaning since it entails vacuuming the exterior of the upholstered furniture first, then spraying a pre-treatment on stained or dirty areas. An extractor machine can also be used in some scenarios for heavily stained fabric.
- Our upholstery cleaners make use of detergents that contain enzymes which disintegrate proteins so as to clean up what is poured on fabric materials. The cleaner then sprinkles or wipes the exterior that has stains with a water and soap mixture, which is left to soak for some time until it dries out naturally. It is also possible to employ steam extraction techniques using a hot water vacuum machine that bursts humid air mixed with chemicals used in upholstery cleaning. Upholstery cleaners are of two types: water-based cleaning and dry-cleaning solvents. Some cleaners like the solvent based cleaners usually leave a chalky residue that has the ability to attract dirt, so they’re oftentimes not recommended for use on fabric with deep piles.
While performing upholstery cleaning, our professional cleaners most times wear a suit that covers their entire body in order to avoid direct contact with the fabric and upholstery while cleaning. They can also wear disposable coveralls or disposable gloves when there is a high concentration of fabric.
Common cleaning agents used in cleaning upholstery include: detergents, soaps, bleach and enzymatic cleaners. Conscious effort is made to avoid the risk of fire and toxic fumes by use of products that are safe and suitable for the nature of your fabric.
