How Much Does It Cost to Clean Upholstery?
Some jobs simply require the assistance of a competent professional, so if you’re looking to clean furniture in your home, the first issue you need to address is cost. Upholstery cleaning is a fairly expensive process, especially if you have your furniture professionally cleaned once every 12 months as is generally recommended. The nation-wide average for professional upholstery cleaning service is $198, with a normal range from $178 to $222. Cleaning a large sofa will typically cost around $100, and dealing with a chair should be about $50. There are four major factors that influence the cost of any professional upholstery cleaning project, and they are the size of the furniture in question, the materials being cleaned, how many total pieces are to be cleaned and whether the household has any pets.

The size of the furniture being cleaned and the total number of pieces are both fairly obvious sources of expense. Cleaning chemicals cost money, and the more a professional is required to use, the more it’s going to cost you.
Some fabrics have specific cleaning requirements in order to continue looking their best. The tags for your furniture will explain what is required. Items with a “W” or “WS” tag can be cleaned using a water-based solution, and these items will generally be cheaper to have washed. Anything with an “S” tag will require a dry-cleaning solution, and these should generally be handled by a knowledgeable professional. Items with an “X” tag have special requirements that can only be handled by a pro, and consequently, these pieces of furniture will be significantly more expensive to clean.
You love your pets, and your pets love your furniture. But, your furniture may not hold up so well to the wear and tear of pet ownership. If you have pets, you need to be sure that your cleaning service provider is always aware of this fact as some cleaning solutions are far from ideal for a pet-friendly environment. Likewise, pets mean more stains and more abuse for your furnishings than you’d expect from a humans-only household. This can often require multiple cleanings in order to achieve the results that you desire, and unsurprisingly, this raises the cost of having your upholstery cleaned by a professional.
