How to extend the life of your upholstery
In order to keep your furniture looking new, it is essential to conduct maintenance regularly. Vacuuming and immediate attention to spills are necessary. A deep, thorough cleaning by a certified technician is also recommended every 12-24 months.
Due to the wide variety of fabrics involved, upholstery cleaning is more difficult than carpet cleaning. As with carpet cleaning, attention to detail and technician skill are key for best results.
Don't forget, the longer a spill stays on furniture, the deeper it will absorb into the fabric and the more likely it will become a permanent stain. The greater the soiling, the harder it is to restore the fabric’s original color. Furthermore, a dirty piece of upholstery will contribute to poor indoor air quality.

Frequently Asked Questions
When your couch or upholstered furniture has become dirty or stained, it is time to call in a professional upholstery cleaning service. When considering a professional service, the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) recommends regular cleaning of fabric and leather furnishings by a trained, certified professional can help restore your furniture's appearance, extend its life, and keep it looking like new.
Moreover, certified professionals can offer simple suggestions to maintain a clean and healthy home or business environment overall.
Keep in mind that most upholstery cleaning problems occur due to over wetting or to slow drying. If you can keep either of these from being a factor during your cleaning endeavors then you should be in the clear when it comes to successfully cleaning your upholstery.
Can my upholstery be wet cleaned?
Most fabrics can be water-based cleaned. Ayoub Carpet Service recommends hiring a professional as there is a bit of an art to upholstery cleaning.
There are a few fabrics that are not compatible with the wet cleaning process. These include cotton, velvet, and silk. Wet cleaning these materials can result in color bleeding or even fiber damage. So make sure you know what type of upholstery you own and always test any cleaning method on a small, out of site area first.
Will my upholstery bleed?
In most cases the fabric won't bleed. However, it is possible to have ink wick up. Using safe cleaning agents, specifically designed for upholstery, ensures that your fabric will not bleed and will be soft, healthy, without allergens. Dye migration, browning and pile distortion can all be caused or made worse by inappropriate cleaning methods.
Will my upholstery shrink?
Typically upholstery fabrics will not shrink if they are secured tight on the frame. Hiring a certified helps prevent damage to your furniture.
Do you have advice for keeping my furniture clean?
It's necessary to conduct routine maintenance (i.e. vacuuming, immediate attention to spills), coupled with periodic cleaning by a certified technician every 12 to 24 months. Furniture and fabric manufacturers recommend that consumers not wait until severe soiling occurs before cleaning because the greater the soiling, the less the likelihood of restoring the fabric's original color, appearance and texture; and the greater adverse effect on indoor environmental quality.
