Ask Carpet Tech: Everything You Need to Know About Professional Upholstery Cleaning

Carpet isn’t the only high traffic area in your home. Your sofa, loveseat, and chairs get their share of spills and dirt. Did you know that up to 80% of the dust and dirt brought into the home can end up in your furniture and upholstered fabrics? A professional upholstery cleaning from Carpet Tech can revitalize your furniture and drapes to make them look new again and last for years to come.

We get a lot of questions about our professional upholstery cleaning service. Here’s what you can expect from your appointment with Carpet Tech.

How long does it take for furniture to dry?

This varies depending on the type of fabric, the amount of soiling and the overall condition of your upholstery. In many cases, your furniture will dry within a couple of hours, but in some cases it may take overnight to fully dry. Your expert technician will review this process with you before leaving your home.

Do you offer protectant or stain guard for upholstery?

Yes. After we thoroughly clean your upholstery, we can apply a Scotchgard protectant to help future spots come up with ease and prevent stains.

How does Carpet Tech clean upholstery?

We use specialized equipment for thoroughly cleaning and maintaining all types of fabrics. Our IICRC certified technicians can provide spot treatments, dry cleaning, or steam cleaning treatments to remove dust, dust mites, dirt and pet dander. Once we’re done, your upholstered surfaces will look and smell like new.

How often should I have my upholstery cleaned?

Most furniture manufacturers recommend hiring a professional to clean upholstery every two to four years. However, the presence of kids, pets, and allergens in your home means you should clean upholstery more frequently to improve air quality and overall cleanliness.

Your soft fabrics are in good hands with Carpet Tech’s trained technicians. Let our professionals revitalize your upholstery and make it look new again. You’ll rest and breathe easier after a service appointment with our team!
