Fabric couches are usually cleaned by brushing and vacuuming to remove loose dirt. Next, stains are loosened with detergent and a damp cloth, before steam cleaning all over.
If your couch is showing obvious signs of dirt and stains, it’s due for a professional couch clean. Or you might be expecting guests, planning to sell your couch, or moving house and want to freshen things up. Most couches will need a professional clean around once a year.
Most couches can be cleaned in around 30 minutes, or 1-2 hours for cleaning a whole lounge suite. However, it may take a day or two for your couch to fully dry after your cleaner is finished.
The average cost of sofa cleaning is $80-$140 when you hire a professional couch cleaning service through Airtasker. Your couch may cost more or less depending on the type of material, the number/type of stains, and the number of seats.
Couch cleaning services usually start with an assessment. Your cleaner will check the fabric/material type, the condition of the fabric, any manufacturer’s instructions, and the types of stains that need removing. This will determine the specific steps, methods, and inclusions.
If you have a fabric couch, your cleaner will start by dislodging and removing dirt using a dry brush with stiff bristles and a vacuum cleaner. Next, they’ll focus on removing any obvious stains by spot-treating specific areas and blotting them with a microfibre cloth and stain remover. After this, they’ll move onto cleaning the entire couch. Sofa steam cleaning is the most common method for fabric couches. Your cleaner will use an upholstery steam cleaner to clean and sanitise the entire surface of your couch. Once they’re finished, they’ll ensure all windows are open and fans switched on to help your freshly cleaned couch dry quickly.
Leather couches might wipe clean with soapy water, but if you want your investment to last a long time, it’s best if you go one step further. After wiping your couch clean with leather soap and drying it thoroughly, your cleaner will use a soft cloth to apply leather cream. This will condition and moisturise the fabric, minimising cracks.
Stain removal might be part of your couch cleaning service, or you might engage a cleaner just to remove a problem stain or two. It’s best if you can get stains removed straight after they occur. If the stain is still wet, your cleaner will attempt to soak it up using paper towel. If your stain is dry, they’ll try to loosen it by blotting it with a damp cloth and detergent mixture. Next they’ll gently rinse the area with a fresh damp cloth before pressing with a dry towel. Alternatively, they may use a foaming fabric cleaner to remove more stubborn stains. The exact process used will depend on your couch material and the type of stain.
