Our upholstery and furniture cleaning services are strong enough to clean the deepest stains, gentle enough not to damage furniture and safe for your entire family.

Clean Upholstered Furniture The Natural® Way

We use The Natural, the same eco-friendly carbonated cleaning solution we use to give your carpets that deep-down, healthy clean, to work wonders on upholstered furniture as well. That means Chem-Dry’s cleaning process for upholstered furniture is safe for your entire family, dries faster and resists resoiling.

Envision millions of tiny bubbles working away at breaking up the dirt and grime trapped deep within the fibers of your upholstered furniture so they can be easily whisked away. That’s how our safe and non-toxic carbonating cleaning solution, The Natural®, revitalizes your furniture for a fresh, healthier, longer lasting clean. This completely natural cleaning method works perfectly with all types of upholstered furniture materials. And because The Natural doesn’t contain any soaps or detergents that can leave behind a sticky dirt-attracting residue, your upholstery stays cleaner longer.

Prepare your Home for An Upholstery Cleaning

Step 1: Remove clutter

The Chem-Dry upholstery cleaner will need to be able to maneuver around the pieces of furniture being cleaned, so removing clutter on both the floor and the furniture itself will go a long way. Shoes and toys on the floor can cause a tripping hazard, and blankets and pillows on the furniture can get in the way. If you set these things aside before the technician arrives, the upholstery cleaner can finish the job quickly, allowing you to resume your regular routine that much faster.

Step 2: Move furniture away from walls

In order to clean the upholstery on your furniture as thoroughly as possible, our upholstery cleaning technicians need to be able to access all sides. Even if it seems like it’s not necessary to clean the entire piece of furniture due to the back being pushed up against a wall, only cleaning one part can lead to your upholstery being discolored, should you ever move the piece to another location. If you move the furniture a few feet out from the wall, the Chem-Dry technician will be able to reach your furniture and deliver a thorough couch cleaning.

Step 3: Make note of problem areas

Our cleaners are very thorough, but different factors such as lighting and shadows can disguise blemishes and hide problem areas from view. Make notes beforehand of any spots that you believe could use extra care and be sure to point them out when the technician arrives.

Step 4: Clear a path for easy access

Our upholstery cleaners need to be able to get their equipment to the furniture, so take a few minutes before they arrive and make sure there is a clear path from the front door to the room where they will be cleaning. Not only will this help the cleaning to go more quickly, but it will lower the risk of tripping on anything as they transport equipment to and from their vehicle.

Step 5: Prepare pets for the visit

While we know you love your pets, a visit from a stranger with big equipment and lots of new smells and sounds can agitate them. It may be wise to have a plan for where you will keep any pets during the cleaning.
