Upholstery FAQ’s

The tag on my upholstery says “Dry Clean Only.” Can you still clean it?
Many manufactures use this type of label on their upholstered products to keep them from being liable for problems that may occur during the cleaning process. Professional cleaners know that with knowledge, experience, proper cleaning agents, and advanced equipment they can clean the majority of fabrics that are labeled “dry clean only”. We would inform you if we were unable to complete your cleaning but in most case we can clean your furniture.
How long will it take We use high powered equipment with vacuum power to remove most of the water used during the cleaning process. Following the cleaning, high speed air movers (fans) can be used to speed up the drying time. Our cleaning process and professional equipment allows us to achieve drying times typically between 1-3 hours, but this depends on the type of fabric and its level of soiling.

Is there a protectant for upholstery to protect my furnishings from spills and wear?
Yes! Because upholstery gets as much wear and tear as carpeting, adding a protectant is a wise investment.
