Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is upholstery cleaning?

From your carpets to your drapes to your furniture, all fabrics need to be cleaned. Cleaning upholstery, or the fabric on your furniture, removes the dirt and oils that are transferred to couches and chairs through regular use. Because furniture upholstery can be delicate and colors can fade easily, it’s often a good idea to let professional sofa cleaners handle the job. They’ll determine the type of fabric — usually cotton, linen, wool, suede or microfiber — and the appropriate method for cleaning it, either steam-cleaning or applying a dry-cleaning solvent. In general, cleaning an entire piece of furniture includes a pretreatment, cleaning, and neutralizing rinse to the body, plus removing and cleaning all cushions and cleaning all crevices.

An upholstery cleaner may clean the entire piece of furniture, on a regular schedule or by request, or do spot treatments to remove pet, food, drink, or oil and grease stains. Furniture can also be deodorized to remove the smell of pets or tobacco smoke. Furniture that’s used often, like that in your family room, should be cleaned once a year to keep it fresh and extend its life. Sofa cleaners often also offer repair services to mend tears in fabric or patch holes in leather.

Who cleans couches?

Even if your furniture doesn’t appear dirty or stained, your couches are collecting just as much dust, pollen, germs, pet hair and dander, and even food crumbs as your carpets. In general, the same professionals who clean your carpets and drapes can also clean your couches. Carpet cleaners usually offer upholstery cleaning services as well, and may offer a discount if you have your carpets cleaned at the same time. Alternatively, you can choose from a range of professional upholstery cleaners in your area who specialize in cleaning different types of upholstery fabrics, including delicate antique fabrics and other hard-to-clean materials such as suede. In addition to deep-cleaning the entire piece of furniture, sofa cleaners can spot-treat food, pet, and oil and grease stains. Most professionals also offer services to sanitize and deodorize your furniture and apply protectants to prevent future stains. As with carpets, experts recommend that you have your upholstered furniture cleaned once every year or two, depending on how much use it gets and whether you have children and pets.

How much does upholstery cleaning cost?

The cost to have your upholstered furniture cleaned depends mostly on two factors: the size of the furniture and the type of fabric. The national average cost of upholstery cleaning ranges from $120 to $150. Most people have multiple pieces cleaned at once, but sofa cleaners will come to your home for just one heavily soiled couch or to spot-treat stains. The smaller the furniture, the lower the cost: A lounge chair may cost an average of $50 to clean, while a couch costs an average of $135 and an L-shaped sectional costs an average of $190. Delicate materials such as antique fabrics or suede upholstery are more expensive to clean than sturdier ones. Having the sofa cleaner do repairs will also add to the cost. Repairs such as mending a tear in fabric or patching a hole in leather may be charged by the task or by the hour; in general, repairs cost an average of $15 each. Special or delicate fabrics may cost additional fees, too.

George did a fantastic job! He was there on time and spent hours to make sure the job was done perfectly. He has legitimate industrial quality upholstery cleaning machines, and eco/kid friendly/safe solutions. We had him do a couch, two arm chairs, six dining chairs and a rug - everything looks brand new. I will always call George in the future when I need upholstery cleaning.

James went above and beyond to make sure my couch looked new, again. I was so impressed with his professionalism, upholstery knowledge, and his attention to detail to get the job done. James took his time to make sure my couch would be cleaned properly then showing me the end result. I will only proudly refer to Restora-Rug Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning to everyone I know. A very happy and new loyal customer!

Excellent service. He was on time, extremely polite, and did a fantastic job cleaning my very beat up couch. He came with all his own tools and it was an effortless process. I would definitely refer George to anyone seeking carpet or upholstery cleaning.

I put out a request for an upholstery cleaning service and within minutes, George responded. It took him about 10 minutes to get here. He spent an hour and a half cleaning my sofa. The care and precision that he took to do this job was highly respectable. If you need a couch cleaned, this is the company to do it.

George showed up on time and did a perfect job. There was one chair of the 9 that had some stubborn stains and he kept working at it until it looked as great as the other 8. He was professional and courteous and I'd hire him again in a minute to do upholstery cleaning or carpet/rug cleaning.

I had hired AMSD for upholstery cleaning services and trusted them to execute the job well as I couldn't be there to oversee it. When I went to check on the upholstery, there were still numerous dirt stains and it looked like the cleaning was not done properly or meticulously. I reached out regarding this issue via email and did not receive a response. In addition, my card had already been billed as soon as the service was finished. Upon finally reaching them via the phone, I was redirected to the cleaning guy who had rendered the service and was advised to wait as the chemicals usually take time to work. However, as the chemicals dried, the stains had worsened! I reached out to the cleaning guy multiple times after but he did not respond to my calls or messages. I had also reached out to Max, from AMSD, again and he indicated that he would drop me a call the day after but the call never came. The cleaning job was done shoddily and there were ZERO attempts at service recovery. The avoidance of the issue is also extremely unethical. The promise made of clean upholstery did not match the service rendered (which I had paid for) and pretty much amounts to fraud,

George did a fantastic job with cleaning my couch recently. It's an L-shaped sectional and he left no cushion unturned. He removed everything to steam clean each cushion one-by-one. It was two years old, never been cleaned and I was surprised at how different it looked after he was done. The upholstery was SPOTLESS when he was finished and he worked quickly. He was very mindful of the space and cleaned up all of his equipment in a timely fashion. I will definitely be requesting his services again!

George did an excellent job cleaning my couch and a few chairs. I would recommend him highly for those considering having furniture, rugs or upholstery cleaned. A few things that stood out about George...He is conscientious and worked around my schedule to accommodate this appointment which I really appreciated - especially as it required a very early morning for him (thanks so much George!). He did a great job cleaning, was extremely thorough and took the care and time necessary to clean all pieces. He is considerate and respectful and communicated quickly about all bookings and any questions I had. Again highly recommended!
