Upholstery Cleaning

The fabric on your couches, chairs and other furniture collect dirt, debris, dander, oils and maybe the occasional spill, just like your carpets.

At Carpet Recovery, we know that your upholstered furniture requires the same maintenance and care as your carpets. 

That is why it is equally important to have your upholstered furniture professionally cleaned once or twice a year. If there are children and/or pets, then those surfaces should be cleaned every 3-4 months.


Why should I have my upholstery cleaned?
It’s simple. Sofas, chairs and mattresses are used every day.

They gather:

  • Dust
  • Mites
  • Hair

    Which can shorten the life of the fabric if not regularly cleaned. 

In addition to harbouring:

  • Bacteria
  • Allergens
  • and other contaminants
    Only with professional upholstery cleaning by a certified technician, will eliminate those, providing a healthier indoor environment.


The types of furnishings does Carpet Recovery clean?
We clean:

  • Sofas
  • Sectionals
  • Chairs
  • Ottomans
  • Draperies
  • Area rugs
  • Mattresses

How will Carpet Recovery clean my upholstery?

We use a process called hot water extraction for our upholstery cleaning services. Hot water extraction is the best way to clean fabrics because it offers a deep clean that cannot be achieved with steam cleaning.


How does hot water extraction work?

In most instances hot water extraction is a four step process:

  1. Specialized pre-spray for upholstery
    The upholstery is given a chemical treatment that breaks down the soil that is embedded in the fibers. The cleaning solution is strong enough to penetrate through the upholstery while delicate enough as to not cause damage.
  2. Mechanically agitate with a special brush designed for use in upholstery.
  3. Rinse
    Hot water is then sprayed on the upholstery to allow the cleansing agent to be absorbed and thoroughly rinsed.
  4. Extract
    The hot water is then extracted using a high pressure vacuum.

What is the drying time for my furniture?
Hot water extraction takes about six to 12 hours to dry. Hot water extraction carpet cleaning companies offer the same process for upholstery because it is the best at removing deeply embedded debris, bacteria, etc while also ridding fabrics of most stains. Steam cleaning dries much more quickly but you won’t experience the same type of immediate and long-lasting results.

Are there other benefits to professionally cleaned upholstery?

Professionally deep cleaning upholstery doesn’t just make the fabric cleaner. The air quality in your home improves as well. Every time you sit on a sofa, particles of dust, bits of mold and pet dander floats in the air. Removing these allergens on a regular basis helps to clear the air.

How much dirt is really in my upholstery?
An area rug can hold up to 200,000 bacteria per square inch. A typical mattress may have up to 10 million dust mites. Homes collect about 40 pounds of dust per year. Much of this dust settles in the soft fabric of sofas and chairs.

Is it expensive to have furniture professionally cleaned?
Not at all! The upholstery cleaning cost is far less expensive than the cost to reupholster. Buying new drapes and area rugs is both expensive and time-consuming. Regular cleaning keeps all of these items looking like new longer, extending the life of your fabrics.

Who should have their upholstery cleaned?
Carpet Recovery works with residential homes and commercial businesses. Any home or business owner should plan to have their upholstery cleaned on a regular basis.

How often should I have my upholstery cleaned?

The amount of time between professional cleaning visits varies depending on how you use the furnishings in your home. If you live in a home with small children or pets, then you should plan to have your upholstery cleaned every three to four months. Otherwise, we recommend having your upholstery cleaned once or twice per year.

Commercial businesses may find they need fabrics cleaned more often if they experience heavy customer traffic.


You can schedule to have your carpets and upholstery cleaned at the same time.
