You may want to try upholstery cleaning as a do it yourself project, but it's not recommended. The textiles used to craft upholstery are similar to the fabrics used to make clothing, in that some are easy to care for and others are easily damaged. If you use the wrong cleaning method, you can end up permanently damaging your upholstery. Read on to learn when you can save money on upholstery cleaning by doing it yourself and when to call your local Atlanta professional upholstery cleaner for some help.
Find out how to care for your piece
Check the care tag on the underside of your furniture. Look for the paper that says "Do not remove under penalty of law." It tells you what materials were used in making your furniture. It also gives you information on how to care for the fabric, usually in the form of a cleaning code. You can look up the cleaning code online to get details on what cleaning agents can safely be used on the upholstery. If there is no care tag and you don't know what fabric is on your furniture, it's a good idea to call a pro.
