Upholstery Cleaning

December 20, 2010

I have the Klein Sofa from Room & Board in the color "cloud" but have no idea how to clean it. I take that back. The cushions are slip-covered so I can just toss them in the washer and they come out looking brand new but I don't know how to clean the rest of the couch (the arms, back, sides, etc.). The fabric is composed of 70% polyester and 30% acrylic micro-bucle.

I know Scotchgard and Woolite make foaming upholstery cleaners for about $8/can so I was thinking of using one of those but wasn't sure if they'd work. I was also thinking of renting a steam cleaner and cleaning the couch that way but I've had good and bad experiences with steam cleaners and I'd hate to have to rent one every month or so to keep it looking good.

Does anyone have any good solutions for cleaning an upholstered couch?


  1. I do not---wish I did though. I may call professional cleaners that can come into your home. That may be the safest bet! : )

  2. Yeah, I figured that'd be my best bet. I think I'm going to call Room and Board and see if they sell some special cleaner or something or could recommend one to buy.

  3. This seems to be a great site which offers Professional Cleaning Company, Commercial Cleaning, High quality cleaning, Domestic Cleaning, House cleaning services, Cleaning Company, Brisbane Cleaning, Lawn Mowing Services, Cleaning Prices, Commercial Cleaning Prices, Domestic cleaning Prices etc. and i would surely like to try their service...i had been relying on http://www.peoplepowercleaning.com earlier and they too offered good stuff.

  4. Don't stress about the mess! Learn how to keep it clean, room by room.
