The Following Important Upholstery Cleaning Steps Will Be Taken:


Step One: Pre-Inspection

Our technician will perform special tests to determine the content of your fabric. The content will determine what type of cleaning solutions and techniques will be used. We will also point out any potential permanent stains or areas of concern.

Area Preparation

Step Two: Area Preparation

We will prepare the area where the upholstery will be cleaned to protect your surrounding furnishings. We don’t want to taint the carpet while the upholstery is cleaned!


Step Three: Pre-Treat

Depending on your fabric, a special solution designed for your fabric type and the soiling condition will be applied to “emulsify” the soil.


Step Four: Pre-Spot

Any potentially difficult spots will be pre-treated with special solutions to increase chances of removal.


Step Five: Pre-Groom

The fabric will then be gently groomed using soft brushes or towels to loosen the soil.

Soil Extraction and Rinse

Step Six: Soil Extraction and Rinse

The soil is then extracted from the fabric with a gentle, controlled rinse.

Post Spot

Step Seven: Post Spot

Any remaining spots will be treated with special stain removal products.

Upholstery needed cleaning.

Often when a chair gets dirty, people think they have to replace it. This side-by-side before and after shows just how effective a professional cleaning can be to restoring your furniture to its original condition. This can also be effective for used furniture, which is a much better deal than buying it new. Whether it's stains, pet odors, or dirt, we can help make it look brand new in most cases.

The family dog had decided to claim this chair (mostly when the family wasn't home) and the chair was starting to show a lot of dirt, dog hair, and smelled like the dog as well. We did a spot treatment on a few spots, then a thorough cleaning of the cushion and chair. The family was very happy their chair was back to its original condition and are working on ways to convince the dog to use its bed.
