For carpet cleaning as well as for upholstered furniture, we use four different types of cleaning methods. Most popular in our industry types of cleaning are.: foam, dry, cold water, and how water extraction (also known as steam cleaning). Our trained technician will test your upholstery fibers to choose the safest and most effective method. One of the most popular methods chosen by us is the hot water extraction service which injects hot water, steam, and chemicals into the fabric of your upholstery item, and then immediately extracts it along with the dirt, residues, and allergens from its fibers.
Take a look below at some important information on how we clean upholstery, what we exactly clean, and how all our services can help extend the life of your upholstered furniture:

They are some very important factors that have a great impact on the price you’re quoted for cleaning upholstery. In to clean your upholstery we need to identify the type of fabric involved, the age of the item, and if it has any particular stains which may require extra special attention.
Please have a look at our prices for cleaning sofas, mattresses, armchairs, curtains, and all other types of upholstery items you may require. And remember, our prices are not calculated depending on the area you live in, instead, they are calculated on the size of the item you need to have us clean.
There are four methods to clean upholstered items: foam, dry, with cold water extraction, or with hot water extraction (this is also known as steam cleaning).
The type of fabric your item is upholstered in, its age, soiling condition, and the last date when it has been professionally cleaned will determine the most suitable cleaning method to employ. Thorough hoovering the fabric is a mandatory step: we use a high-pressure hoover fitted on our machines which will get rid of loose dirt and dust from the fabric of your upholstery.
If the fabric is dry clean only, we use foam or a dry compound on it, we then agitate it to make sure it gets ingrained into the fibers, and then we hoover it back along with the dirt which gets attracted into it. If the fabric is cleanable with water, we use large, industrial machines to inject water along with chemicals into the fibers of the upholstery item.
If the fabric is wool or linen, we will use Woolsafe-approved chemicals and water at up to 30 degrees Celsius; if, however, the fabric is synthetic or cotton, we will use hot water and steam along with different types of chemicals for different types of fabrics. So the fabric of your upholstery will ultimately determine the cleaning method, chemicals, machines and techniques to use.
What Kind Of Upholstery Do We Clean?
In terms of upholstery fabrics, we clean any type available out there. This includes dry clean only fabrics (such as sisal, jute, seagrass, bamboo, viscose, silk, and more), as well as fabrics that can be cleaned with water.
We do not clean wooden furniture (unless it is part of an end of tenancy cleaning service).
In terms of upholstery items, we clean sofas, armchairs, tub chairs, dining chairs, mattresses, chaise-longues, and footstools / Ottomans.
We also clean curtain in-situ, at your property’s address.
Our Upholstery Deodorizing Service Is Awesome
There are two types of deodorizing which we can do.
The first one involves using additional chemicals to refresh and deodorize any upholstery item you may have. This is included in each upholstery cleaning service you book with us.
The second type of deodorizing service involves refreshing and dealing with odd smells on any given upholstery items. It does not have to be booked with the actual upholstery cleaning service, and it is designed for properties where there are strong smells of smoke, cannabis, raw water, and other similar odors.
Protecting your upholstery items
You can protect the fabric of your upholstery items when booking a stain protector service with us. This means that apart from deep cleaning and deodorizing the fabric, we will add one extra step to the service. It involves using a stain protector chemical on the upholstery item so that it will create a protective layer on it.
The protective layer will prevent liquids from going deeper into the fabric of your upholstery. In other words, when you happen to make a stain on the upholstery, its protective layer will keep the stain at the top, preventing it from going deeper into the fabric. This means that the fabric will be easier to spot clean and to fully clean.
Maintaining the look of your furniture
You can see a great return on your investment if you book a regular upholstery cleaning service with us. This will greatly extend the lifespan of your upholstery fabric because the longer any fabric stays untreated, the longer the chances for it will be to degrade at a faster rate than normal.
You can help prevent that by regularly vacuuming each upholstery item you have, as well as booking a professional upholstery cleaning service with us, preferably once every three or six months.
