A professional cleaning can breathe new life into your furniture by removing stains, dirt, and allergens. A qualified pro will know the right supplies and techniques to get the best results for your fabric and furnishings.

Do I Need My Upholstery Cleaned?

Soft surfaces can attract and hold odors and contaminants like dust and dander, so periodic cleaning can improve the air quality in your home. Fabrics are also very vulnerable to staining, so if your furniture is looking worn thanks to spills and grime, it might take a professional cleaning to make it look fresh again.

What Are the Benefits of Professional Upholstery Cleaning?

Pros use high quality equipment to apply and extract cleaning solutions thoroughly, and have the know-how to choose right supplies for the application—many of which are not available to consumers. Using the right methods and materials make for an effective cleaning with little risk of damaging or discoloring your upholstery.

What Type of Upholstery Cleaning Services are Available?

Most cleaning options involve the application of cleaning solutions to the fabric covering of a furniture piece, followed by extraction or drying as appropriate. Steam cleaners may be used, as well as spot treatments for stains and manual cleaning and conditioning for leather.

How Long Does Upholstery Cleaning Take?

The size, upholstery type, and soil level of your furniture will influence the time needed for the job, but most single pieces can be cleaned in an hour or less. It might take a pro two hours or more to clean a large or complex piece, or several small items.

What Materials Are Required for Upholstery Cleaning?

A professional upholstery cleaner may use a steam cleaner or specialized extraction machine to apply and remove or dry the cleaning products needed for the job. Common cleaners and solutions include detergents, soaps, solvents, deodorizers, and dry cleaning chemicals.

Does Upholstery Cleaning Have Any Hidden Charges?

Professionals generally price upholstery cleaning by the piece, such as a chair, sofa, love seat or ottoman, so the price of the job should be determined up front. However, extra fees may apply for spot cleaning, moving furniture, or using special sanitizing or deodorizing products and techniques. Also, some providers charge a minimum fee regardless of the type, size, or number of items to be cleaned.

How Much Does Upholstery Cleaning Cost?

Rates commonly range from as little as $15 per piece for a dining chair to $50 or more for an upholstered or overstuffed chair and up to $300 for a large sectional sofa. The cleaning method used, services provided, and scale of the job can influence pricing.
