How Much Does Upholstery Cleaning Cost?

It is always better having a clean home, but many fail to remember that upholstery cleaning is just as important as any other part of the home. This should be done at least once a year, and unfortunately, it is a job you should leave to the professionals. If you are not professionally trained to clean upholstery, you risk damaging your upholstery, or not cleaning it at all.

How Much Does It Cost To Clean Upholstery?

On average you can expect the cost to clean upholstery around £150 on a professional service. However, this price may stretch anywhere between £77 and £230.

The cost for cleaning your upholstery can vary according to any number of factors. The four biggest factors include:

  • surface area of the upholstery
  • how many pieces are being cleaned
  • whether or not you have pets
  • type of cleaning that is required

Number and Size of Upholstery

Like with any other service, the cost to clean upholstery will be determined by how much there is to be done. If you have a lot of upholstery to clean, you can expect to pay more, and you can expect to pay for each piece to be cleaned instead of one flat fee. This is important, as you could end up paying a high-end service price.

The main reason to hire a professional for upholstery cleaning is that there are many stains you can not remove yourself. Furniture is commonly upholstered with specific fabrics that do not respond well to normal cleaning methods, and we highly recommend that you get in touch with local experts in your area to compare at least 3 quotes and get the best price possible.

Whether or Not You Have Pets

Something that many people do not consider is the fact that they own pets. Pets are messy. If you allow your pets on your furniture, they not only shed fur, but they bring dirt and other outdoor debris with them. Pets can leave stains that are much more difficult to get out. Additionally, if your upholstery has a lot of pet fur on it, it results in a more labor intensive cleaning.

As a rule of thumb, you can expect to pay more for upholstery cleaning if your pets are on your furniture, or even if they are just in the home.

Type of Cleaning Required

The last component is, of course, the type of cleaning. There are special types of fabrics which cost more to clean. It is important to figure this out ahead of time, so you know what cleaning process you will be paying for. If you look at the tags on your furniture, they should tell you what cleaning methods are acceptable.

Here i's how to read the tag:

  • If you see a W or a WS on the tag for cleaning instructions, clean them with a water based solution. These items are generally less expensive to clean.
  • If you see an S on the tag, you will need a dry cleaning solution and no water can be used. This should always be done by a professional cleaner.
  • The tags that have an X on them have very specific requirements and you should only use a professional. These will be more expensive to clean because of the extra care needed.
