How Our Upholstery Cleaning Works

The secret to North American Chem-Dry’s drier, healthier upholstery cleaning is the millions of tiny effervescent cleaning bubbles in the cleaner known as The Natural®. The carbonating solutions penetrate deep into the upholstery, literally exploding dust and dirt up to the surface. Once the contaminants are lifted to the surface, our powerful extraction equipment whisks it away to ensure a thorough clean. Chem-Dry’s safe, non-toxic solutions actually help your sofas, love seats, couches, and chairs stay as clean as when they were brand new. Steam cleaners in San Francisco just can’t compare to the superior results North American Chem-Dry can get in your furniture. Don’t settle for less, call North American Chem-Dry today!

They accommodated our schedule and the cost was fair. Everything looks and smells great! We will use them again. I would definitely recommend them. Thanks.”

Tested and Proven Upholstery Results

At Chem-Dry, we’ve spent years researching and developing our state-of-the-art cleaning processes, so we know that they really work. We have years of proof in the form of clean furniture and happy customers in San Francisco. However, we wanted to know exactly how effective our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) furniture cleaning process was, and we’re sure our customers were curious as well. That’s why we invited a leading independent laboratory to come and test it out. The lab concluded that Chem-Dry’s HCE process removes an average of 99.1% of common household allergens from upholstery*. (The allergens tested were dog and cat dander and dust mite allergen.) In addition, the lab found that our HCE process, used along with a sanitizer, removes an average of 89% of the airborne bacteria in the home*, improving indoor air quality. Our upholstery cleaning cleans better, it’s science!

Frequently Asked Questions 

What area do you serve?
We serve all of San Francisco. We clean upholstery for both residences and businesses in the Bay Area.
How long will it take my furniture to dry after cleaning?

In most cases, newly cleaned furniture dries within just a couple of hours. However in some cases it may take overnight to fully dry depending on the upholstery’s fabric and how deeply it was cleaned – i.e. heavily stained areas will take longer to dry.

Do you offer protectant or stain guard for upholstery?
Yes, after your upholstery cleaning you can have your furniture stain-guarded with Chem-Dry’s Protectant, which will help protect your furniture from future stains. Just ask your technician about this!
How often does my furniture need to be cleaned?
Furniture manufacturers recommend professional upholstery cleanings every 24-48 months. As with carpets, the presence of kids, pets, allergies, and asthma in the home necessitates more frequent cleanings to improve air quality and the overall healthiness of the home. No matter how long it has been since your last cleaning, if your furniture is stained, saturated, or has unwanted odor then it is ready for a cleaning.
