Spot Cleaning Upholstery In Greater Boston & Cape Cod Area

Spot Cleaning UpholsteryUpholstery is very different from the carpet. Addressing spots and stains usually requires a different set of skills as well as different cleaners. Never use a carpet or rug spot cleaner on your upholstery. This can cause permanent damage to fabrics.

In the event of a spill, first, scrape off any solid substance using a spoon or dull knife. Next, use a white cotton cloth or a white paper towel to blot any liquid from the fabric. As always, be careful not to rub. Follow this up by blotting the stained area again, this time using a damp white cotton cloth.

If the stain is acidic of nature, such as wine, coffee, tea, fruit juice, or vomit, follow the above procedure by then put a sprayer into a fresh bottle of club soda and lightly spray anywhere the stain appears. Allow sitting for a few minutes then blot dry.

If you are not sure how to proceed or the stains are still present call Alec’s Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning and we'll either guide you through it or send a carpet cleaning technician to take care of the problem.
