Upholstery Cleaning

Professional Cleaning at Home

When it comes to professional cleaning, many often think of deep cleaning and carpet cleaning yet overlook the importance of upholstery cleaning. Your carpet may cover more square footage in your home, but we bet you spend more time sitting in your favorite spot on the couch than lounging on the family room floor. Here are a few reasons upholstery cleaning is so important:


Dirt, fleas, pet dander, mold, and other pathogens can build up and you won’t even see it. Not only can they cause a health risk to your family, mold, and bacteria can get deep into your furniture and cause unpleasant odors.

Air Quality

Just as your carpets can act as a filter for molds and bacteria in your home, so can your upholstery. Regular cleaning keeps allergens at bay so you can breathe easier.


This is probably the main reason people get their upholstery cleaned – so it looks nice. You can keep your furniture looking nicer (and help it last longer!). With regular cleanings you help prevent build-up from dirt and grime.

Leather Services

Leather is meant to be soft and supple, however if you don’t care for it properly, the color can fade, and it can crack and feel stiff. 

Our IIRC Certified technicians have a bevy of tools at their disposal and would love to deep clean, condition, or sanitize everything from your beloved sofa to your fleet of office chairs.

Upholstery Care Tips Between Professional Cleanings

Proper care of upholstery between professional upholstery cleaning services in San Francisco is essential to maintain its appearance, comfort, and longevity. Here are some tips for at-home upholstery care:

Regular Vacuuming

Vacuum upholstered furniture regularly using the upholstery attachment to remove dust, dirt, and debris. This helps prevent particles from settling into the fabric fibers.

Avoid Direct Sunlight

Minimize exposure to direct sunlight, as it can cause fading and deterioration of upholstery fabrics over time. Use curtains or blinds to block or filter sunlight.

Minimize Pet Access

If you have pets, take measures to control their access to upholstered furniture. Use pet-friendly furniture covers or train pets to use designated areas.

Rotate & Fluff Cushions

Rotate, flip and fluff cushions regularly to distribute wear and tear evenly. This helps prevent one side of the upholstery from deteriorating faster than the rest.

Test Cleaning Products

Before using any cleaning product, test it on an inconspicuous area of the upholstery to ensure it doesn’t cause discoloration or damage. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations. Also, be sure not to use harsh chemicals.

Avoid Eating on Upholstery

Discourage eating or drinking on upholstered furniture to prevent spills and crumbs. Use a designated dining area to minimize the risk of stains.

Arm & Head Rest Covers

Consider using armrest and headrest covers to protect these high-contact areas from body oils, sweat, and soil. These covers are usually washable and can be easily replaced.

Spot Cleaning

Immediately attend to spills and stains by blotting them with a clean, white cloth or paper towel. Avoid rubbing, as it can spread the stain. Use a mild, water-based cleaner recommended for the specific fabric type.

Groom Your Upholstery

Gently brush and groom the fabric using a soft brush or upholstery attachment on a vacuum cleaner. This helps remove surface dust and keeps the fabric looking fresh.

By following these upholstery care tips, you can help extend the life of your furniture and keep it looking clean and inviting between professional cleaning sessions with Dome Cleaning. Regular maintenance is key to preserving the beauty and functionality of upholstered pieces.
