Cleaning upholstery is not as simple as it may seem, you don't just pour a chemical into a machine and clean. Some fabrics need to be wet cleaned, some dry cleaned and some can be cleaned both ways. Some upholstered furniture like velvet needs to be "carded" using a special brass brush. There are specific cleaners for different types of upholstery, and using the wrong cleaner on your favorite sofa could be costly! Also, the types of tools and equipment used to clean upholstery and the way they are used can be profoundly different. The wrong tool can over wet and cause water staining. Having cleaned upholstery for over 33 years, we have witnessed it all and proceed cautiously with care.

Upholstery Cleaning Code Labels
Most furniture will have a cleaning code located under a cushion and this will tell you what process is recommended for the upholstered piece. These codes are: S - for dry clean only ,W - for wet cleanable, S/W — May be done by either method and X — Do not use either method. When there are no tags on the furniture body, we can come to your home and have a look at the piece in question. We don't want to wet clean upholstery that is "dry clean only" (water based cleaners can damage furniture fabrics and even turn it brown or cause it to shrink and pucker.). In some cases, furniture that states "dry clean only" may be wet cleanable. Don't be fooled by companies offering $59 Sofa Cleaning Deals, you get a more thorough cleaning with DMS.
