Top Upholstery Cleaning related questions

How often should you hire an upholstery cleaner?

For regular household upholstery, a professional clean every 1-2 years is enough to keep your furnishings looking fresh. If you live in a humid area, have young children at home, or your furniture is in a professional setting, you might need to have it cleaned more often.

What is upholstery cleaning?

Upholstery cleaning involves using specialist fabric cleaning techniques designed for furniture that’s covered with leather or fabric. It usually includes items like couches, chairs, car seats, fabric bed frames, and ottomans. 

What kinds of tools and techniques are used in professional upholstery cleaning?

Your upholstery cleaner will carefully match the product to the type of stain and fabric to effectively remove dirt without doing damage. Common tools include vacuums, steam cleaners, brushes, and cloths, as well as a range of cleaners and solvents.

Why should you get a professional upholstery cleaner instead of doing it yourself?

Cleaning upholstery yourself can be a messy, time consuming, and expensive task. It’s especially expensive if you use the wrong products and ruin your couch! Professional upholstery cleaners can extend the life of your fabrics with the right products and cleaning techniques - they’ll get the job done more efficiently and effectively than if you did it yourself.

How long does upholstery cleaning take?

Upholstery cleaning can take anywhere from 30-90 minutes, depending on the upholstery type, the size, fabric types, and the level of dirt. Most couches will take around an hour to clean, and you’ll need to allow an additional 2-3 hours for steam cleaned surfaces to dry out afterwards. 

How much does it cost to get a couch or sofa cleaned?

The cost of upholstery cleaning ranges from around $90-$160 when you hire a cleaner through Airtasker. This price will depend on the type of upholstery, the size of the furniture, the fabric type, and how much built-up dirt is on the couch. 

What does upholstery cleaning include?

When you book upholstery cleaning, your cleaner will arrive at your home and use either steam cleaning (hot water extraction) or dry powder cleaning to restore your fabric furniture items. The preferred technique and products will depend on the fabric type, how dirty it is, the age of the fabric, and the type of stains. Your cleaner will recommend the approach that’s best for you.

Here’s what you can expect from the process, depending on what type of upholstery you need to be cleaned:

Couches and sofas

Having your couch professionally steam cleaned can give it a new lease of life, and remove stains, smells, and dust. Your local upholstery cleaner will remove all the cushions and vacuum the couch to remove any dust in the crevices. They will then apply the cleaning agent, leaving it to soak in and draw out the dirt particles. Once the agents have fully processed, your upholstery steam cleaner will vacuum or steam mop all surfaces and replace the cushions. If your couch has been steam cleaned, it may need several hours to dry before you can use it again.

Stain removal

If you’ve invested in a light coloured couch and have kids or pets at home, you’re probably on high alert for stains on your fabric furniture. An upholstery cleaner can easily remove stains from your fabrics using specialist chemicals to suit the stain and fabric type. Your cleaner will start by applying the chemicals to break down the stain without damaging the fabric. They’ll then remove the chemicals with a vacuum or cloths and clean the rest of the furniture. Your upholstery cleaning professional can also apply stain and water repellant products that will help liquids pool on the surface, so you have more time to clean spills before they soak in.

Fabric bed frames

Fabric bed heads and frames can be sneaky dust and mould magnets, harbouring dust mites that can trigger allergies and asthma. Usually, these areas are cleaned with hot water extraction (steam cleaning), which pumps hot water into the fabric, killing bacteria, fungus, and dust mites. The extraction machine pulls these out of the fabric, along with the hot water. While you’re having your bedhead cleaned, consider getting your mattresses, pillows, fabric ottomans, carpets, and drapes professionally steam cleaned at the same time.

Car Upholstery

Car upholstery can take a beating. From wet dogs, kids and their messes to plain messy liquid spills - a professional car upholstery cleaner can have your seats smelling fresh again in no time. Your cleaner will start by vacuuming the area, getting into any crevices and cleaning around the surrounding seat area. Next, they’ll shampoo and steam clean the fabric, paying special attention to any stains so your seats look brand new and smell fresh again.
