Upholstery Cleaning


A memorable dinner party can leave a mark to remember… on an exquisite Louis XVI dining chair. You also don’t invest in a Poltrona Frau sofa, only to then give it a scrub with baking soda. Whether it’s a specific mark you need to remove, or just grime that’s built up over time, as professional upholstery cleaners, we should be your first port of call.

We’re based in Sydney, but our fabric care specialists can come to you,
providing upholstery cleaning services in Sydney, Newcastle, Central Coast and Canberra.

Professional Sofa Cleaning Services

Sofa and lounge cleaning on a regular basis will help extend the life of your investment. Apart from your bed, you probably spend more time on your sofa than anywhere else.

Professional Upholstery Cleaners

Our fabric care specialists know their way around a weave like you wouldn’t believe.
Whether it’s herringbone, plain or basket, or made of cotton, linen, wool, hemp or silk, our upholstery fabric cleaning experts know exactly how to tailor their cleaning to your furniture (and it’s not by using the upholstery cleaner you find in the shops!).

Upholstery Cleaning Sydney – The Process


First, we’ll examine the upholstery in detail. We will look at the type and quality of the fibres, along with the composition and any marks or soiling that has occurred over the years.

After an assessment has been conducted, we can determine which of the following steps are required to return it to the way you remember.


The main washing stage is a two-step process, as outlined below.

- Dry Soil Removal

We will remove any dust and debris that has been ground into the fabric over the years.

Using horsehair brush vacuum heads and turbo upholstery heads, we will also get into all of the gaps with a professional crevasse tool.

- Upholstery Cleaning

Depending on the fibre, and the level of soiling or stains, we will choose to either steam clean, low moisture clean or dry clean your furniture. There is no residue and no impact on the rest of your room with any of these processes, so you’re in safe hands with our fabric care specialists.


Finally, we will address any stubborn stains with a professional upholstery fabric cleaner, a process known as ‘hand spotting’, and the upholstery will be almost back to new. To finish it all off, and to finally get it looking as good as new, we will carefully brush and groom all of the fabric to give it that showhouse appearance, and then it is all yours to enjoy.


If you would like, we can also treat your upholstery with a layer of protection, such as Fiber ProTector or MicroSeal, to ensure we don’t have to visit again too soon!
