Frequently asked questions

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.

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.

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.

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 best course of treatment.

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

The plumber was fantastic, made sure the job was complete and that I was aware of what I needed to do to keep on top of the plumbing so we didn't have to call him out again. Very happy with the service
