Upholstery Cleaning Prices


One of the most common questions we get asked on a regular basis, when it comes to upholstery cleaning, is:

What Do You Charge To Clean Upholstery?

Of course, this question is not the most important question you can ask your upholstery cleaner, but it is a question that should certainly be asked.

Much like carpet cleaning, the key questions to ask when you are thinking about your upholstery being cleaned is not about price, but rather the experience of the cleaner, the method that is going to be used, how long will the upholstery take to dry - that type of thing.

But Asking About Upholstery Cleaning Prices is Important

So, let's talk a bit about the type of upholstery cleaning prices you are going to see on a regular basis in Vancouver, Washington.

The Price of Sofa Cleaning In Vancouver, Washington

The cost of having your sofa cleaned can really vary; there is not a real set price if you are hiring an upholstery cleaning company that is honest and does good work.

The prices to clean upholstery vary with a number of factors being considered.

1.The type of fabric. Usually a natural fiber will cost more to be cleaned than a synthetic fiber sofa. Not always, but most of the time.

There is one main reason for this:

Natural fiber upholstery can be trickier to clean than synthetic fiber upholstery. With natural fibers there are more potential problems that can occur - such as bleeding, browning, and shrinkage.

2. The size of the sofa. The larger the sofa usually the higher the price to have the sofa cleaned. But it does go a bit beyond just the "numbers" when it comes to the size of the sofa.

There are factors like cushions. Does the sofa have back cushions that
need to be cleaned? If so, this can raise the price.

What about pillows that go with the sofa? If there are pillows this could also increase the cost of having the sofa cleaned.

3. The degree of soiling and stains. Soiling and stains are a major price
factor when dealing with carpet and upholstery.

The more soiled an upholstery piece is, the more it is probably going to
cost to have it cleaned.

The more stains you have on your upholstery almost guarantees a higher
cleaning price.

Upholstery cleaning prices are not as simple as an upholstery cleaner saying "this is an 8 foot sofa, so here is my price."

With high-quality upholstery cleaning companies they rarely price that way, they almost always want to see the upholstery piece to be cleaned and, most likely, also do some initial test before they quote you a price.

Ok, so what can you expect to pay to have a sofa professionly cleaned, the
right way, in Vancouver, Washington and the surrounding areas?

Let's use this sofa as an example:

An eight foot sofa with three deck cushions, three back cushions, and is made of synthetic fiber, and average soiling with no stains.

Remember, we said the RIGHT WAY. So this excludes a lot of low price
"splash and dashers" or companies that vacuum your upholstery and say they cleaned it.

For the above example that piece is going to cost from around $100 to $150.

It could be more, it could be less, but that is about the range you can expect
a good upholstery cleaning company to quote you.

If the above sofa is made of natural fibers then that same sofa can go from
$100 to $150 to easily over $200 to be cleaned.

The variance in materials, and cost of cleaning upholstery, is a MAJOR reason why you should have a firm, written, on-site quote of any upholstery you need to have cleaned.

So What Does It Cost To Have a Loveseat and Chairs Cleaned?

The same issues with a sofa obviously apply to loveseats, chairs, and large
sectionals. You really need to have the upholstery cleaner take a look at
what you need cleaned - and then give you their price.

But, in general, you can expect to pay approximately $50 to $75 for a chair,
$75 to $100 for a loveseat, and anywhere from $175 to $300 for sectional sofas.

Of course, a large sectional sofa with a lot of cushions is going to cost more
than a smaller sectional without cushions and pillows.

We cannot stress this enough: Make sure you have the upholstery cleaner look at the piece of upholstery to be cleaned before they quote you a price. And then make sure the cleaner gives you a firm WRITTEN quote.
