Frequently Asked Upholstery & Furniture Cleaning Questions

How is professional furniture and upholstery cleaning different from carpet cleaning?

In some cases, the same equipment that we use to clean carpets is also used to clean upholstery. However, in other cases, no steam or water is used at all. In all situations, far less water is used in upholstery cleaning. This is to make sure that the furniture will dry completely and not develop undesirable odors, mold, or mildew. The variety of specialty materials used in the furniture like leather, silk, chenille, linen, canvas, microfiber, velour, etc…, require correspondingly varied cleaning methods to achieve the best results without causing damage.

Why is it necessary to have furniture professionally cleaned?

Dust, dirt, pet dander, food particles, and even dangerous toxins can become trapped in upholstered seating surfaces. Professional upholstery cleaning removes much more of this unwanted material than can be accomplished with consumer-grade equipment and solutions. After a professional cleaning, your furniture won’t just look newer and smell fresher, the environment in your home or commercial facility will be much healthier.

Is it expensive to have upholstered furniture professionally cleaned?

Having furniture professionally cleaned will extend its life. Compared to the cost of replacing filthy, worn-out furniture, maintaining your furniture with professional cleaning is a bargain.

How frequently do I need to have my upholstered furniture professionally cleaned?

Most furniture manufacturers recommend having fabric upholstery cleaned every 12 to 24 months.

How long does professional upholstery cleaning take?

Total upholstery cleaning time depends on the beginning state of the furniture (stains, dirt, pet odors, etc…), the cleaning process used, and the amount of time needed for the upholstery to dry. Your K&M upholstery cleaning experts in the office and the techs performing the service will give you an estimated cleaning time prior to service.
