Furniture and Upholstery Cleaning

Just like carpets, furniture and upholstery are made of materials that require different treatment during cleanup. However, no matter the fabric you’re dealing with, there are a few best practices to keep in mind:

  • Clean spills right away to increase the chances of adequate spot removal.
  • Keep furniture out of the sun to keep fabrics from fading.
  • Pay close attention to fabric cleanability codes to determine which type of cleaning agent can or should be used.
  • Apply a protector once the piece is clean to create an invisible, protective layer on upholstery fabric.
