Clean Upholstery in Chicago Looks Better, Lasts Longer


Spring is a great time to have the upholstered furniture in your Chicago area office, clinic, retail space or other commercial facility cleaned, and the professionals at ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons are standing by to get the job done for you! We have the tools and techniques to quickly and effectively remove the coffee, soda, food stains, ground-in dirt, body oils, dust and odors from your chairs, sofas and other pieces of furniture.

Because upholstered furniture in most businesses sees tremendous daily use, it should be professionally cleaned at least twice a year, say industry insiders. Not only does clean and properly maintained upholstery last longer, it also helps your customers and employees feel more welcome and comfortable. After all, you don’t want to make your customers feel like they have to stand vs. taking a seat because they’re afraid of getting their pants dirty!

Clean upholstery offers health benefits, too. That’s because dirty upholstery harbors dust particles, bacteria and allergens. Allergens, substances that are foreign to the body, can cause allergic reactions. Examples of common allergens include pollen, mold, dust and dust mites. Particles and debris from dust mites are the major source of allergens in dust. As is the case with some other allergens, dust-mite particles contain proteins that are small enough to become airborne and inhaled. Yuck!

To remove those nasty allergens, along with any number of other foreign substances, we use the following multi-step process to make upholstery look like new and smell fresh:

  • Thorough vacuuming with high-powered machines
  • Inspecting and pre-treating of all stains with high-quality cleaners
  • Shampooing and rinsing with our highly effective hot-stream extraction method
  • Rapid and thorough drying
  • Polishing of all wood legs, arms and other surfaces

After we’ve completed the above steps, we’ll carefully inspect the furniture again to ensure that it’s clean and odor free. Our goal is your complete satisfaction with our professional cleaning services.
