To keep your furniture and drapes clean, it’s necessary to conduct routine maintenance, including periodic cleaning by a IICRC certified technician every
one to two years. Furniture, drapes and fabric manufacturers recommend that consumers not wait until severe soiling occurs before cleaning because the greater the soiling, the less the likelihood of restoring the fabric’s original color, appearance and texture, and the greater adverse effect on indoor environmental air quality.
Regular cleaning of fabric and leather furnishings by a trained, certified technician can help restore the appearance of your furniture and drapes, extend their life and keep them looking like new. Regular cleaning of your furniture and drapes can also reduce allergens in your home. Moreover, certified technicians can offer simple suggestions to maintain a clean and healthful home or business environment overall.
To help protect your upholstered furniture you might also want to reapply the ‘scotchguard’ protection treatment. You can learn more about this treatment on our fabric protection page.

To keep your furniture clean, it’s necessary to conduct routine maintenance, including periodic cleaning by a IICRC certified technician every one to two years. The following tips will also help:
- Control soil by using arm caps and rotating seat cushions frequently to prolong life and appearance of areas prone to wear and tear.
- Remove dry soil by vacuuming and, depending on the fabric, brushing to remove dust and soil particles.
- Increased cleaning may be required when fabric is subjected to heavy use, or when it is located in homes occupied with persons with allergies or respiratory sensitivity.
