From heavily soiled to light cleaning, our 12 step cleaning process is designed to restore your furniture as close to its original condition as possible. We can clean all types of upholstery, even the most delicate of fabrics.


  • Step 1: Pre-Inspection
    Our technician will perform special tests to determine the content of your fabric. The content will determine what type of cleaning solutions and techniques will be used. We will also point out any potential permanent stains or areas of concern.
  • Step 2: Area Preparation
    We will prepare the area where the upholstery will be cleaned to protect your surrounding furnishings.
  • Step 3: Pre-Vacuum
    All textiles should be vacuumed thoroughly before cleaning. This step will remove dry soils and any loose particles from cracks and crevices.
  • Step 4: Pre-Treat
    Depending on your fabric, a special solution designed for your fabric type and the soiling condition will be applied to “emulsify” the soil.
  • Step 5: Pre-Spot
    Any potentially difficult spots will be pre-treated with special solutions to increase chances of removal.
  • Step 6: Pre-Groom
    The fabric will then be gently groomed using soft upholstery brushes to loosen the soil.
  • Step 7: Soil Extraction and Rinse
    The soil is then extracted from the fabric with a gentle, controlled rinse .
  • Step 8: Neutralize
    The fabric is then pH balanced to maintain it’s soft, fresh feel.
  • Step 9: Post Spot
    Any remaining spots will be treated with special stain removal products.
