Sofa cleaning 101: Getting you sofa cleaned is like giving it a bath in a way! We do daily maintenance for things that are fabric like laundry & vacuuming, so it makes sense that our sofas deserve the same love too! Your upholstery is an investment, and one that with the right care can last you a really long time. When you have children and pets around, undoubtedly your couch is going to get messy sometimes, and the wear and tear it endures can start showing up over time. Getting your couch cleaned helps maintain it’s natural appearance from how it should look, and not by what it’s been through!

So now you want to get your sofa cleaned and you want to make sure you get this done right. You may have been searching for how to clean your sofa by googling something like ‘sofa cleaning vancouver’ – well look no further! Here we have your guide on how to prepare for sofa cleaning:

 

Vacuum first

Giving your upholstery a good vacuum is an important first step in getting it prepped for cleaning. Make sure you vacuum deep into the couch/under the cushions to get any loose particles like crumbs, pet hair off of there. This allows the superficial layer of dirt to be removed so that the deep cleaning can penetrate the fabric fully with nothing getting in the way. Maybe you will even find some change in there!

Move objects

It is best to move any objects or furniture that surround your sofa away from there for the time of cleaning. Push back any coffee tables, side tables, and move the couch a couple of feet away from any walls if you can. This will allow our technician to have easy access to all areas of the sofa, for thorough cleaning and to make sure that all your other belongings are safe.

Dazzle clean

When our technicians arrive they will do a post-inspection with you of the couch were they will assess all areas of the couch, and address any stains or areas of concern that you may have. Any stains that your sofa has will be treated individually with a pre-treatment spray. They will also spray a pre-treatment all over the surface areas of the couch to start dislodging all dirt from the couch and prepare it for it’s deep clean! Next, they will begin the cleaning using high heat water and extraction suction to deep clean every inch of the couch. Once they have finished, they will do one last inspection with you of the couch to go over all areas, and again address anything that may have been a concern.

Dry time

Drying times vary depending on the fabric type of the couch and the environment it is in. Drying time can typically be anywhere between 3-6 hours. We recommend not sitting on the couch until the fabric is completely and evenly dry. Once it has fully dried, you can move your couch back to it’s proper place and then it’s back to enjoying life on your now newly cleaned sofa!

Guard

At Dazzle we always want to make sure you get the most out of our services. One way to maintain and protect your sofa after cleaning is by getting your technician to apply ultra-protection guard on the sofa after cleaning. Ultra-protection guard is an additional service and is a great defense to have on your sofa. It helps to protect it against long-term wear and tear, and most importantly any accidents or spills that may happen to your sofa because hey, life happens!

  • Dazzle was one of the few places I called looking to have my sofa cleaned. In the end, I chose this company simply because the person over the phone was polite and professional. Aiden was the technician that arrived at my home, and not only did he get the nasty stains out of my sofa, but he gave me cleaning related knowledge that I was unaware of. He was also super kind, polite, and professional. I’ll definitely be sticking with Dazzle for future services!

  • I noticed the Dazzle Carpet Cleaning van at my neighbours and gave them a call to see if they could clean my place too. Thankfully Bernard was able to make a switch and fit me in! Soon after, Aidan came to my door to assess what needed to be cleaned and I could see that he was enthusiastic about stain removal! Aidan is friendly and professional and did a great job carefully moving furniture around. He thoroughly cleaned my large sectional sofa, the living room carpet and even got the blueberry stain out of my kitchen chair! I highly recommend Aidan as he clearly has confidence in his own skills and demonstrates pride in his work. I am very happy with the results!

  • My carpets looks brand new! The service was amazing, the people were very polite , the price is complete amazing too! They didnt manage to take out one stain but it almost faded , so I easily removed it with vinegar and it was gone . I feel like I would have to deal with it more difficult if they hadn't remove the stain as much as possible! I always had trouble finding someone who can clean my carpets, but I finally found one that I can trust!

  • Showed up when they were supposed to - I have had too much trouble with other companies no shows. Tech Aiden did a great job, asking questions as needed and letting me know of problems spots. Now that everything is dry, all the carpets look glossy and clean. I will be calling them again for future cleaning.

  • I used Dazzle Carpet Cleaning for the first time this week and am super impressed with the service and quality of work. After my previous carpet cleaner retired, I found Dazzle by searching carpet cleaners on the internet. I feel lucky to have found such a fantastic company first try. Kiera is very organized setting up the appointment and reminders and making sure I knew when the technician was arriving. Rob and his assistant cleaned the carpets. Rob is a very informed and talented professional. He ensured an excellent clean of my carpets and care of my walls and corners. I am very impressed and will call Dazzle in the future. I am also happy to support a small, local business.

  • I had the Dazzle come in to have our carpet cleaned prior to the arrival of our newborn. It was a very last minute decision and initially, I was hesitant about cleaning the carpet as I remembered it would usually leave a strong chemical smell and I had to ventilate the whole house for at least a couple days. We are a family of two young toddlers and a newborn on the way and I was not sure if I wanted to risk having the wet and chemical soaked carpet only a couple weeks before my due date. But I realized I worried for nothing. I was able to get an appointment promptly and get the work done in a matter of a few days. Rob and his assistant did a fantastic job! There was absolutely no need for me to worry about the smell or ventilation as there was none and the carpet were spotlessly clean. They convinced me that I could have a clean, if not cleaner, carpet without having to use strong chemical filled products. I would highly recommend to anybody but especially, for families with young children like ours who can appreciate their plant based products that are safer to little ones. All in all, I am 120% satisfied with their work and would love to have them come back to clean our carpet in the future again!
