Our 8-Stage Professional Upholstery Cleaning Process

Your fabric furnishings are probably one of the most heavily used pieces of furniture in your home, and as such, they can quickly show signs of dirt and soil.

Having your fabric furnishings professionally cleaned will not only restore them to their former glory, but will also extend their life.

Our technicians are properly trained and equipped to identify the fabrics in question and select the best cleaning method for them.

This prevents the fabrics from being damaged during the cleaning process, which is often the case with a do-it-yourself clean.

There are numerous types of fabrics used in upholstery, and correctly identifying them is a critical stage in the process.

As with our carpet cleaning service, we take a meticulous approach – from fabric identification and initial vacuuming through the wet or dry cleaning methodology, delivering consistently excellent results.

1/ Inspection /Survey

When it comes to upholstery, this step is even more important because there are so many different types of fibre and fabric that can go wrong if they aren’t found correctly.

We will test the upholstery to see how it is made and also ask questions about it to find out more about its history.

2/ Crush and croc test

To make sure that your upholstery doesn’t get damaged when you clean it, these are some more tests.

Dye bleed will also be checked during this process to make sure there is no colour run during the process.


3/ Dry soil extraction

With our commercial-grade, twin motor, upright hoover, we give the upholstery a good clean.

80 to 85 percent of dirt is dry dirt, so it’s important to remove this first to make sure the particles don’t stick to the fibres when they get wet and don’t wick back.


4. Prespray & Agitation

We go over the furniture with a cloth, mitt, or drill brush to work the prespray deeper into the fibre and loosen any stubborn dirt.

We may not agitate certain items due to weak fibres that may be damaged during this process; this will be decided during the inspection.

5. Extraction

Spray extraction provides the most thorough clean for your carpets (when performed by trained professionals).

A rinse is applied to the upholstery, which is then extracted using our top-of-the-line extraction machine and upholstery hand tools.

6. Spot Treatment

After we finish the spray extraction, we will go over your upholstery again to look for any spots or stains that need to be treated further.

We will apply a suitable stain treatment, using eco-friendly chemicals whenever possible.

7. Pile Brush

Once the cleaning process is complete, it is critical to go over the furniture with a special brush to reposition the pile.

This is frequently overlooked and, if not done, can result in pile damage and the upholstery appearing different colours in different parts on occasion.

8. Stain Protection

If you have chosen to use our stain protector, we will apply it at this stage.

Stain protectors will aid in the removal of future spills or dirt, but they are not foolproof

Why get your soft furnishings cleaned?

Your soft furnishings are a breeding ground for bacteria, and pathogens and dirt can build up to the point where they can cause health risks.

These organisms can be released into the environment each time someone sits down on a sofa or chair.

There are many nooks and crannies in your soft furnishings, down the side of the arm, under the cushions and many more.

These are all collecting ground for crumbs, dirt, dust and sometimes pocket change J

Lift up your cushion and have a quick look at what’s underneath you may be surprised what you find.

It’s all a breeding ground for germs and dust mittes which if left can have serious effects on yours and your family’s health.

Saves you money and keeps it comfortable

You have likely invested a significant sum on your sofa and chairs and as such you want them to last a long time.

Having them cleaned regularly will do just this as well as keeping them comfortable.

If they are left, they may begin to show signs of wear.

Specific areas, such as the arms and headrest, where grease, dirt, and sweat accumulate, can begin to break down the fibres over time, resulting in patches or even holes.


Our home is our largest investment, so we want to keep it looking nice, especially when friends and neighbours come over.

Having your soft furnishings professionally cleaned will ensure that they are noticed for the right reasons and that your visitors will return.

It’s in the word “professional”; we have the necessary training, knowledge, and experience, as well as top-of-the-line equipment and the most up-to-date cleaning solutions, to get the job done RIGHT.

There’s many types of fabrics and fibres in soft furnishings (more so than carpets) and choosing the wrong cleaning method or solution could cause irreversible damage.

Every step of our process has been designed to produce the best results possible while minimising the risk of causing damage to the soft furnishings.

They’re manufactured with the expectation they’ll need cleaning

Most sofas and chairs have care instructions on the label that say “clean them regularly” and “use a professional.”

Why would you not do what the manufacturer suggests?

Would you have a go at plastering your house, or installing a new boiler?

I’m guessing not. You would choose a professional, so why not do the same with your upholstery.


While we have never had to call our insurance company to make a claim, it is critical that we have all of the necessary insurance as a professional company.

If something goes wrong, you can rest assured that we have a plan in place to deal with any problems that may arise.

If however, you are unsure of anything you can always pick up the phone and give us a call.

We are always more than happy to have a chat and answer any concerns.

There are a lot of cowboys out there who will overlook this aspect of their business so always make sure you ask before booking anyone, this goes without saying for any tradesmen you have in to carry out work.
