Upholstery Cleaning

Upholstery is a beautiful addition to your home, but it attracts just as much dirt and allergens as your carpets. Dirty clothes and shedding pets only add to the problem. Alamo Chem-Dry’s unique hot carbonating extraction process is ideal for upholstered furniture including couches, loveseats, and chairs. Our upholstery cleaners in San Antonio can revitalize your upholstery with a fresh clean that dries quickly and stays cleaner longer. Before you consider replacing your furniture, give Alamo Chem-Dry a chance to save it with our upholstery cleaning service in San Antonio, Texas. 

Using the patented Chem-Dry® equipment and solutions means that we clean deeper, and more gently. We remove smells and stain from deep within your upholstery, not just the surface, so you know your furniture is really clean. We leave your carpets and upholstery clean and fresh without soaking them with water and harsh chemicals. Most other cleaning methods force water down into the fibers of your upholstery and use suction to remove the water. This method leaves your upholstery soaking wet and creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew that can be harmful to your home and family. When you choose Alamo Chem-Dry, your carpets and upholstery dry in 1-2 hours, rather than the 1-2 days required by most cleaning companies.

The Carbonated Secret Revealed

Chem-Dry® gets your furniture clean by lifting dirt and soil to the surface of your furniture’s fabric. Once the contaminants are lifted to the surface, our powerful extraction equipment whisks it away. The secret to Chem-Dry’s drier, healthier upholstery cleaning: millions of tiny effervescent cleaning bubbles. The carbonating solutions penetrate deep into the upholstery, literally exploding dust & dirt off the surface. After this, we use hot water extraction to whisk away dirt particles and ensure a thorough clean. Chem-Dry’s safe, non-toxic solutions actually help your sofas, love seats, couches & chairs stay as clean as when they were brand new.

Tested & Proven to Remove Allergens

We were curious to know just how effective our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) cleaning process was, and we’re sure our customers were as well. That’s why we called up a leading independent laboratory to come and test it out. The lab concluded that Chem-Dry’s HCE process removes an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from upholstery. The allergens tested were dog and cat dander and dust mite allergen.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for furniture to dry?

In most cases, the furniture dries within just a couple of hours, but in some cases it may take overnight to fully dry depending on the upholstery’s fabric and how deeply it was cleaned – i.e. heavily stained areas will take longer to dry.

Do you offer protectant or stain guard for upholstery?

Yes, after the upholstery cleaning, you can have the furniture stain guarded with Chem-Dry’s Protectant.

How does Chem-Dry clean upholstery?

We use our proprietary hot carbonating extraction cleaning method, featuring our core cleaner The Natural®. The carbonated cleaning bubbles release dirt, soil, airborne allergens and spots from the upholstery fibers. Then, we use our extraction equipment to remove the cleaning solution, dirt, soil and airborne contaminants from your furniture, leaving it with a deeper, healthier clean than other alternatives.

How often do upholstery manufacturers recommend that you clean your furniture?

Manufacturers recommend professional upholstery cleanings every 24-48 months. As with carpets, the presence of kids, pets, allergies and asthma in the home necessitates more frequent cleanings to improve air quality and the overall healthiness of the home. If furniture is stained, saturated or has unwanted odor then it is ready for a cleaning.

Why should I have my upholstered furniture professionally cleaned?

In homes that have carpet, up to 80% of the dust and dirt brought into the home can end up in your furniture and upholstered fabrics. Without professional cleaning, this dust and dirt will remain in your carpets and furniture and can become very unhealthy.
