Upholstery Cleaning

The Zerorez Process

Step 1
Inspection

We identify the type of fabric on your upholstered furniture, inspect its general condition, do a dye bleed test (colorfast test), and determine if it can be cleaned without damage. If we clean it, we'll proceed to step 2.

Step 2
Pre-Treatment

After doing a quick vacuuming, we apply a specially engineered pre-treatment upholstery cleaning spray to your furniture and agitate it with a horse hair brush. This helps breaks down the dirt and grime deeply embedded in the fabric.

Step 3
Rinse, Extract & Dry

With the upholstery cleaning tool, we apply Zr Water® at a low-pressure, further loosening embedded dirt and thoroughly rinsing the upholstery fabric, sucking suck it away with our powerful trunk mount system. We then groom the fabric pile appropriately so the nap dries correctly.

Step 4
Fiber Protection*

Applying our premium fiber protector on your upholstery prolongs the life of your furniture, minimizes spots from future spills, and keeps your furniture cleaner, longer.

*This is an optional, additional service.

Why Professional Furniture Cleaning Matters

Upholstery filters the air in your home, trapping dust, dirt, allergens, and grime in its fabric. While that's great for improving your home's air quality, it isn't great for the furniture, as it speeds up how quickly the fabric wears down, dulls the fabric's appearance, makes it crunchy and stiff, and overall makes it far less enjoyable to sit on.

Deep cleaning furniture is important for improving your upholstery's longevity as it removes all the crud trapped in its fibers. And, of course, a deep cleaning helps to restore its appearance and softness.


While you can find many do-it-yourself DIY upholstery cleaning products, methods, tools, or suggestions online, it is usually safer, quicker, and more effective to use a professional cleaning service like Zerorez.

Why Choose Professional Upholstery Cleaning

When it comes to your furniture, there's no other surface that brings you as much comfort. Upholstered surfaces are a soft place to land at the end of a long day, and keeping yours clean isn't always the first thing that comes to mind.

Unfortunately, couches and sofas are houses for all kinds of dust, dirt, dead skin cells, and oils from our bodies. Because we use them so frequently, keeping up with professional sofa cleaning services is the best way to prolong the life and look of your upholstery.

Why Upholstery Cleaning by Zerorez?

Not only will you get the trained, certified and friendly Zerorez team to provide you with our legendary customer service and detailed workmanship, you can expect:

How often should you professionally clean a fabric couch?

Couches and other upholstered furniture should be vacuumed regularly to remove dirt and debris, and any spills or messes should be wiped up and blotted as soon as possible after they happen.

However, it is generally recommended that couches are professionally cleaned every 6 months. But, there are several factors that go into how often you should deep clean your couch such as its color, how often you use the couch, spills, stains, and accidents on it, your sensitivity to allergens, and if you have pets. Regular couch cleaning helps prolong the life of your furniture.

What does professional upholstery cleaning include?

Professional upholstery cleaning usually includes cleaning the sides, backs, cushions, and included pillows on the upholstered furniture. Each included part of the furniture will be inspected, vacuumed, pre-treated (if needed), rinsed with Zr Water®, extracted, and dried.

We may not always clean the "the decking," which is the fabric that seat cushions of sofas rest on, as this increases dry time, can cause dye bleeding onto the cushions, water spots, and a weakening of the fabric.

We can also spray the fabric with our premium fiber protector after it's cleaned, as an additional service.

How much does a professional couch cleaning cost?

Pricing for professional upholstery cleaning is usually based on size - either the number of seats, the length of the furniture, or a combination. Each Zerorez location sets their own prices for the cost of couch and other furniture cleaning. Please contact your local Zerorez to learn more. Locations periodically run special promotion and discounts on upholstery cleaning.

How long does upholstery take to dry after being professionally cleaned?

It depends a lot on the upholstery materials and its weave, but usually cleaned upholstery will dry in 6 hours or less. We work hard to ensure your upholstery dries quickly, often using a fan, and setting cushions in an inverted V pattern.

Does Zerorez clean commercial upholstery?

Yes! Zerorez loves helping companies keep their workplaces clean, fresh, and comfortable for their employees, so we can clean office furniture, sofas, chairs, cubicles, and wall partitions. Learn more about our commercial services to find out more and the benefits of cleaning office furniture.

The Upholstery Cleaning Process

What can you expect from Zerorez Upholstery Cleaning St. Louis? We aim to provide as much information about our services as possible so you understand and can anticipate what working with us looks like.

Once you've booked your upholstery cleaning, one of our cleaning experts will come out to your home and identify the material used for your upholstery. From there, they can tailor the cleaning process and give you helpful tips on how to keep your upholstery clean after the service.

Using our pretreatment first to begin loosening the dirt and grime that has accumulated, we are able to get to those hard-to-reach areas. Then, we agitate the pretreatment before going in with our Zr™ Water to flush out and vacuum up the water and dirt. When we are done, you're left with beautiful, bright upholstery.

A Difference You Can See and Feel

A traditional upholstery cleaning company will flood your furniture with soaps and detergents, leaving harsh chemicals all around your home. And when they're done, your upholstery is still going to feel grimy and sticky even if it does look a little cleaner.

That's because these harsh chemicals leave a residue behind that can actually attract dirt, causing you to need more frequent cleanings. With Zerorez Upholstery Cleaning St. Louis, we aim to do the opposite.

Our process is intended to make your cleaning feel better and last longer. Without the use of harsh chemicals, soaps, or detergents, we leave nothing behind. That means softer, brighter upholstery that lasts. And with faster dry times, you can get back to resting your head on your comfy couch in no time, knowing that you've chosen the healthiest and deepest clean for your home.
