Upholstery Cleaning


We offer a high performance upholstery cleaning service based in Bournemouth and covering Poole, Christchurch, Wimborne, Ringwood, Highcliffe and surrounding areas.

We are able to clean most forms of upholstered fabric coverings on sofas, chairs, armchairs and electric riser recliners using various cleaning methods and solutions.

We aim to remove as much of the soiling as possible without damaging the fibres of delicate furnishings.  We clean many fibre types including polyester, acrylic, cotton, polypropylene and viscose mixes.

Working to high standards we take great care to ensure the service we provide meets or exceeds our exacting customers requirements.

Using a hand tool to dry vacuum an armchair before cleaning

Dry soil removal

We always start with this first step in all our cleaning processes.  We use a powerful vacuum cleaner and a range of nozzles to remove the dry soil and dust from the items being cleaned.  We vacuum all around the suite including the backs and all crevices.

Pre treatment

Treating the soiling on upholstery can require different techniques and products.  We spray our pre treatment on to the upholstery and hand brush through the fibres to help break down this remaining soil and separate it from the carpet fibres.

Treating spot stains on an upholstered sofa

Spot removal

We treat all spots and stains as we go which increases the time for our products to work.  We use a range of general spotters and Eco spotters to give us a range of products to suit soil composition and customer preference.

To help remove the maximum amount of soil we brush the cleaning solutions into the fibres to increase the chances of the cleaning solutions contacting all the soil and grease and helping to remove it.

When all treatments have been completed the upholstery will be rinse extracted with a hot water rinse.  This will remove all the residual soiling including cleaning products, leaving the upholstery clean.

Removing moisture from the cleaned items using a cotton towel to reduce the drying time


After the cleaning is finished all areas can be wiped with lint free cloths to remove any excess moisture.  During colder months we can deploy driers to speed up the drying process.

We use cotton drop sheets and waterproof sheets to protect the sub floor from any overspray during preparation and pre cleaning.

Cushions, if removable will be stacked to enable drying to take place in the most efficient way.
