The Best Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Service in the Business

What’s the best way to clean furniture and upholstery?

Furniture often has both practical and sentimental value—if for no other reason than our furniture often sees more of our lives (and backsides) than any other personal affect. If you are a committed do-it-yourself cleaning enthusiast (or you’ve encountered an emergency), baking soda is a safe option. Be careful not to use corrosive, bleach-based cleaning products or any generic cleaning formulas whose chemicals could pose a risk to a home’s occupants (particularly children and pets). Depending on the material, vacuuming a sofa is also a safe, recommended option.

Furniture is often taken for granted; we sit on or otherwise use or furniture without much thought, but this heavy use is not without consequences for the furniture’s outward appearance as well as longevity.

How do I find the cleaning code on furniture?

Furniture and upholstery usually feature sizable tags with cleaning instructions that you assume you’ll never need—until you do. Sometimes, these tags include symbols which can be interpreted to provide special cleaning instructions. For example, “W” means that any water-based cleaner can be used, while “S” means that spot-cleaning only can be applied as a cleaning technique. “S/W” means that either a solvent-based on water-based cleaner can be used. “Wash” means that a washing machine can be used on a delicate setting and with cold water. If you see an uninviting “X” on your tag, it means that the piece must be professional cleaned. These cleaning instructions are designed to maximize your furniture’s lifespan, and, regardless of the specific cleaning instructions for do-it-yourself cleaning, a professional cleaning team is guaranteed to provide a deeper clean with the security of knowing that your furniture will not be damaged in the process.

How often does furniture need cleaning?

The answer will depend on the type of furniture. General upholstery cleaning (including of curtains and sofas) is recommended every six to twelve months. Tables, chairs, and other surfaces require more consistent attention. A good rule of them is that, if a visual inspection suggests the need for a cleaning, it is probably overdue. In fact, when dead skin cells, dirt, and pet dander build up on a couch, the furniture can begin to smell-which is no quick fix. Antique fabrics can react severely to cleaning products, and so hiring an experienced professional is advisable in order to prevent premature wear resulting from frequent cleaning attempts.

What is the best way to clean wood furniture?

The best do-it-yourself products for wood cleaning are olive oil and vinegar. Regardless of what brand you choose, look for commercial wood cleaners that are advertised as certified biodegradable products. Why? These products do not contain wax, which results in significant buildup on wooden furniture. Before using a homemade or commercial cleaning product, use a duster to remove hair and dust from the surface. Microfiber cloths with water are the most efficient ways to remove dust and leave a nice finish on varnished furniture. If you have unfinished wood furniture, don’t use water, but just the cloth. It is important to keep in mind that “wood” is a generic category that represents a number of possible categories and species of woods. Therefore, as with carpeting and upholstery, it’s best the leave wood cleaning to the professional cleaners, who are able to identify exotic types of wood and apply the appropriate cleaning techniques and products.

How can I hire a quick and affordable professional to clean my furniture?

A professional cleaning service is the best option for thorough cleaning of furniture, curtains, and upholstery. Because they do this for a living, professional cleaning services can guarantee that furniture will be kept safe. An improper attempt at cleaning can be a thousand times worse than a spill—especially since a spill can be handled with relative ease by a professional cleaner. Professional cleaners use a variety of technologies (including Chem-Dry carbonation method as well as the hot-water extraction technique) to ensure that nearly 100% of the dirt and bacteria is removed after cleaning. A professional cleaning is a multi-step process that involves both vacuuming, odor neutralizing, and dirt extraction using non-abrasive, organic, and safe materials. A professional cleaning service can be entrusted to renew your furniture to good, clean health. Many companies will provide a free estimate and can visit your home the next day, if necessary. To find a company, start by asking friends and families about companies they have used. Word-of-mouth reviews provide excellent insight when selecting a cleaning service for your upholstery and furniture. The internet is another great tool for research companies with favorable reviews and ample customer testimonials.

How much does a top curtain and upholstery service or furniture cleaning cost?

The answer to this will depend on the type and size of your drapes and furniture. Some companies charge about $5 per pleat, others set benchmarks based on the dimensions of the curtain set (a typical set of average-sized curtains usually costs about $40-$75 to clean). For furniture items, a general guideline is that a standard cleaning for chairs costs about $50, while larger couches and sectionals cost a minimum of $100. Special types of fabric or wood that require additional products or multi-step treatments might cost more. Professional cleaning companies are usually able to provide a quote or estimate over the phone. Always ask about bulk discounts or any special promotions they are currently running.
