What methods we use when performing upholstery cleaning

Professional upholstery cleaning London - steam cleaning a sofaWhether it is a sofa, a couch or an armchair, the technicians follow an industry-standard procedure of steps in order to bring the best cleaning results to your furniture.

  1. Upon arrival, the technicians inspect the type of fabric of your soft furniture to determine the most suitable cleaning method that needs to be applied.
  2. Then, they thoroughly vacuum the piece to remove all hard particles and dust.
  3. Next, the cleaning operatives pretreat all traces of spills, pet soiling and any smudges with a professional stain removal solution.
  4. As a final step, the furniture is expertly steam or dry cleaned, depending on what its made of, with industry-powered upholstery cleaning equipment.

Cleaning methods we use

Depending on the material/fabric of the upholstery, the expert upholstery cleaners will determine and carry out the most convenient for your furniture cleaning method. More details about hot water extraction, dry cleaning and leather treatment can be found in the table below:


Suitable for synthetic & mixed fibre

This method uses a powerful steam cleaning machine with special upholstery cleaning extensions and attachments. It is suitable for heavily soiled and badly stained synthetic fabrics. The technique incorporates the use of hot water, a professional solution and high pressure.

Your upholstered sofa, settee and armchairs are first sprayed, and then, the equipment is used to extract the moisture (up to 95%) along with the grime, leaving your furnishings looking as new. A drying time of 2 to 4 hours applies.


Used for delicate & natural fibre like wool and silk

Textiles made from more delicate natural fibres, bright-coloured fabrics, as well as suede, generally benefit from being dry cleaned. The procedure involves the use of foam or a dry powdered solvent, which interfere with the dirt after a process of agitation.

A powerful vacuum cleaner is employed at the end to remove the dissolved soils and the detergent. The method brings back the original look of your furniture, leaving it virtually dry and ready to use straight away with no chemical residues left behind.


Either used for faux and genuine leather upholstery

Our leather sofa cleaning solutions are designed to restore the great look of your luxurious items and extend their life. The qualified upholstery cleaners apply a professional leather cleaning product with a soft brush that is subsequently polished off with a cloth.

Your sofa or lounge is then buffed with a leather rejuvenator as a final touch. The method is also applicable for pieces made from eco-leather. The recommended drying time is about an hour.

Stain protection for your favourite sofa with Scotchgard

When the cleaning procedure is done, the product is applied evenly to the upholstered item. After it gets dry, your upholstery will be protected from future soiling without its breathability being harmed.
