Frequently asked questions

How do I know your cleaning method is suitable for my upholstery?

We have a range of cleaning methods that we can use to clean upholstered furniture.

After you book, we'll call you to get more information about your carpets. From that infomation, we'll determine the best method for cleaning your carpets & bring all the tools for the job.

Usually we'll use the 'hot water extraction' method, but this isn't suitable for all upholstery. If the upholstery is too delicate for hot water extraction, we can use other cleaning methods instead that will also leave your upholstery good as new.

How do I book upholstery cleaning?

You can request upholstery cleaning as part of any one-off clean.

If you don't require upholstery cleaning as part of a deep clean or end of tenancy clean, you can book a standalone clean of your upholstered furniture. Select the deep cleaning option & tell us in the notes that the clean is for your upholstery only. We'll send you a quote.

What types of furniture can you clean?

You can book upholstery cleaning for almost any furniture. The most popular items are:

  • Sofas
  • Chairs
  • Mattresses
  • Curtains

If you're unsure about booking upholstery cleaning for an item of furniture - get in contact. We'll let you know which cleaning method works & give you a quote.

What kind of stains can be removed with upholstery cleaning?

Light stains can be removed with upholstery cleaning. Heavy staining might not be rectified with cleaning, and may require colour correction treatment or reupholstering to restore.

Your cleaner will always do their best to restore your furnishings to their original condition & will advise on the bst course of treatment.

What is Housekeep doing to stay COVID-19 secure?

We're following enhanced cleaning, handwashing and hygeine procedures, and we're asking customers and cleaners to maintain social distancing during all upholstery cleans.

About upholstery cleaning

Upholstered furniture can harbour bacteria and germs, such as COVID-19. Over time, your furniture may also lose some of its colour and can pick up unpleasant stains and odours from spillages.

Our upholstery cleaning service removes bacteria, allergens, stains and odours from all types of upholstered furniture. Our service will revitalise your furniture, leaving it softer, cleaner and healthier.

You can book upholstery cleaning for all of your upholstered furniture, including:

  • Chairs
  • Sofas
  • Mattresses
  • Curtains
  • Blinds

To book upholstery cleaning, simply fill out our online form and a member of the team will give you a call to help get you booked in. You can request upholstery cleaning on its own, or book this service as part of a one-off or end of tenancy clean.

Once we have the details about your upholstery, we'll decide on the most suitable treatment and bring all the kit we need. We'll either use hot water extraction, or a different cleaning method, depending on the material and condition of your upholstery.

Our upholstery cleaning service is COVID-19 secure; we’ve introduced enhanced cleaning, handwashing and hygiene processes, and we’re taking all reasonable steps to maintain a 2 metre distance during cleans.

We’re the UK’s market leader in home cleaning services, having delivered over one million cleans, with a 4.9-star average rating. Our service has also won multiple awards, including Service Business of the Year and Consumer Business of the Year

Estrella arrived ahead of time and worked very hard. She was at all times very courteous and good company. She observed Covid code well. She transformed my grubby kitchen! I am extremely grateful!

Jenifer, Brixton, (Yesterday)

Miryam is a delight in every way (and lovely to chat to!). She puts so much effort into cleaning and all the little finishing touches that make a difference. We are so happy to have found her.

Pamela is really lovely and made my home look absolutely beautiful! She is a very talented cleaner and extra little touches like folding the towels are extra special

Amanda, Livesey, (Yesterday)

I thought Shanara was just great - she has a keen eye for detail and is so thorough with her cleaning. She has a great work ethic and was really conscientious with her work. She was very friendly and keen to get started. I thought she was brilliant! Thank you!

Giuseppe was amazing! He was very professional and left the house 100% clean, and even helped me organise things in the house. Highly recommended.
