Upholstery cleaning for your couch, sofa, chair, or sectional will disinfect, decontaminate, and beautify. You should vacuum your furniture regularly, and have a professional upholstery cleaning at least once per year. If you have a dog, consider upholstery cleaning two to three times per year.
Although do-it-yourself spot treatments can be risky, if done right, it’s okay. However, upholstery should be thoroughly cleaned top to bottom at least once per year by a professional. If you don’t, the cushions and arms that you use more than others will begin to darken more and more — and will eventually become so worn, that even the most powerful upholstery cleaning won’t be able to make a dent. Upholstery darkens from use — grease, dirt, and life in general. This happens because once the contaminates are in the fiber, they act as agitators against the dye and they literally compromise the integrity of the upholstery itself. After a while, as the dirt builds up, it grinds away the color and the fiber itself until it’s irreparable without replacement.
Professional vs DIY
A professional upholstery cleaning is tough on stains, odors, and dirt while not risking the integrity of the fiber. The Drysteam upholstery cleaning method is over two hundred degrees, high enough to obliterate all bacteria while not enough to risk damaging the furniture. Stains should be treated as soon as possible. Treat a spill as soon as it happens, and then call for a professional upholstery cleaning. Take a rag or cloth, and wet it with a bit of dish soap. Dab the liquid up from the fiber, and then gently scrub with the soapy rag. Do this a few times, and then schedule an appointment with us. Often times we’re able to help the same day you call.
Whether you know what upholstery fabric your furniture is made out of or not, it’s fine. Drysteam professionals are well-versed and educated in recognizing and cleaning even the most exotic fabrics. From microfiber to cotton, we’re equipped to expertly handle it with ease.

Commercial Upholstery Cleaning
If you have a workplace in Fort Lauderdale, you more than likely have furniture, which means you’ll need commercial upholstery cleaning at some point. Businesses can be a bit tougher on their furniture than your average homeowner, so the cleaning should adapt – most notably in strength.
How commercial upholstery cleaning differs from Residential:
- The pre-treatment used varies based on the need. Restaurants, libraries, churches – places with heavy traffic – will need a different approach than an average home.
- Storefront businesses need to have their upholstery cleaned during off hours.
- The cost per unit is less expensive because most commercial furniture is made of cheaper fabric than home furniture.
The advantages of keeping your furniture clean:
Upholstery, very much like carpet, can carry bacteria, fleas, dust mites, and even fungi; all of which find a home in the fibers of the fabric. Having DrySteam perform commercial upholstery cleaning at your business will not only revive the look of your furniture, but it will also help you disinfect and sanitize the furniture that you and your customers use on a daily basis.
