Chem-Dry tech cleaning upholstery in a living room

Our upholstered furniture is hard at work trapping dust, dirt, and allergens that are tracked inside of our homes in Lake Tahoe. Because of this, they require professional cleaning services to maintain their appearance, texture, and overall filter-like functionality throughout the years. While reaching for the vacuum is a good place to start, it won’t solve the problem at its core. In fact, due to the fair share of usage that upholstery sees, a majority of dirt and allergens have become so deeply set in the fabric that they won’t be able to be extracted by at-home DIY methods alone.

Partnering with a leading upholstery cleaning company in Lake Tahoe like Chem-Dry can ensure your furniture is properly cleaned. With the upholstery cleaning service from Chem-Dry of Lake Tahoe, you can be confident that your upholstered furniture is receiving an industry-leading cleaning service. In fact, it has been proven that our service removes allergens from upholstery. This will allow your furniture to continuously trap more dirt and allergens in the future, contributing to an overall healthier indoor environment with cleaner air to breathe.

How often should my upholstered furniture be cleaned?

You should aim to have your upholstery professionally cleaned at least once every 24 months. However, if you have any kids or pets in your home who spend an increased amount of time on upholstery, you may want to consider upping the frequency of professional cleaning appointments. Because our service is so effective at removing trapped allergens, it can also help to alleviate allergies or asthma symptoms in the home.

Is the process for upholstery cleaning similar to the process for carpet cleaning?

Upholstery tends to be composed of fabrics and materials that are more delicate than those found in a carpet. Because of this, cleaning an upholstered couch or chair needs to be done with care. Accidentally using the wrong cleaning solutions or too much water can leave the upholstery damaged.

At Chem-Dry of Lake Tahoe, we’ve built a reputation for being one of the best upholstery cleaners in Lake Tahoe. That’s because we use our proprietary Hot Carbonating Extraction process to clean upholstery, which relies on 80% less water than traditional steam cleaning methods. The natural power of carbonation in our solution dives deep into upholstery fabrics to thoroughly extract dust, dirt, and allergens. Our powerful suction equipment then removes all utilized cleaning solutions, leaving behind no dirt-attracting residue.

Can stains be removed from my upholstery through professional cleaning?

Our upholstery cleaning service is also formulated to remove virtually any stain from your upholstery. Our team in Lake Tahoe has years of experience in removing some of the toughest pigmented stains from a wide variety of upholstery materials, including those from pet urine accidents.

Once we have successfully removed stains from your upholstery, you’ll most likely want to do everything in your power to keep your upholstery as clean as possible. That’s why we offer an innovative Protectant Package which boosts the stain resistance of upholstered fabrics and provides a protective barrier for their delicate fibers.

How long will it take for my furniture to dry following upholstery cleaning?

As previously mentioned, our upholstery cleaning service relies on significantly fewer amounts of water than typical methods in Lake Tahoe. While this is better for the environment, this also means that you can expect to enjoy clean, dry furniture in a matter of hours once we’ve finished. However, for certain fabrics or particularly soiled pieces, drying may also need to take place overnight.
