*Add-on service. Not included with standard service.


Prior to cleaning the furniture, the technician will vacuum the upholstery to remove loose debris, pet hair and dirt on the surface.

The Natural® 

The technician will spray The Natural on the upholstery. The Natural is carbonation-based and contains no soap, detergents or chemicals. The bubbles from the carbonation lift dirt and contaminants embedded into the fabric to the surface of the upholstery.

Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE)

Next the technician will use our state-of-the-art equipment for Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE). The process uses suction to remove all of the dirt, contaminants and debris as well as The Natural solution from the upholstery.

Each piece of furniture requires 10-15 minutes of cleaning. After our upholstery cleaning service the furniture will typically be dry within a few hours. The length of time depends on soil conditions, humidity and other factors. Running your air conditioner or ceiling fans will help reduce the dry time.

Upholstery Protectant

Most modern furniture is manufactured with a stain guard or protectant. That manufacturer stain guard fades over time.

Champion Chem-Dry of Lake County technicians can apply Chem-Dry upholstery protectant after the standard cleaning service. This new application forms a protective shield around the furniture and repels most liquids and stains that creates an opportunity to clean the stain before it becomes permanent.

We offer protectant as part of our carpet cleaning too!

Upholstery Sanitizer

You can also add Chem-Dry sanitizer to our standard service. Chem-Dry sanitizer eliminates bacteria both on upholstery and in the air. Studies have proven that Chem-Dry sanitizer in combination with our upholstery cleaning service removes 89.1% of airborne bacteria in a home.

Why is Upholstery Cleaning Important?

Furniture is both functional and decorative and is often the centerpiece of a room. In order for furniture and upholstery to remain comfortable, functional and beautiful, it requires routine professional cleaning to remove embedded dirt from the fabric.

If embedded dirt is ignored for too long the upholstery will suffer from expedited wear and tear and colors will fade.

New furniture is not cheap so it is best to take good care of your current furniture so that it lasts as long as possible. We also offer upholstery cleaning for car interiors so that you love the look of the inside of your car while you own it.

How to Prepare for Upholstery Cleaning?

Clear Clutter

Remove all clothes, toys, shoes, socks and other items on the furniture prior to the technician arriving. Limit the amount of clutter around the furniture so that the technician isn’t hindered and your upholstery cleaning service is both effective and efficient.

Move Furniture

If possible, move all the furniture being cleaned away from the wall so that the technician has access to all sides of the furniture. If this is not possible it is OK since technicians are able to move upholstered furniture as part of the standard service.


Scan the furniture and upholstery before the technician arrives to identify problem stains or areas you want to ensure the technician recognizes. This should not be necessary since our technicians are well trained in identifying stains on upholstery but more customer communication is always appreciated!

Easy Access

Clear walkways to the furniture of clutter so that the technician can maneuver the upholstery cleaning equipment with ease.


There can be some commotion during the upholstery cleaning service and our technicians will come in and out of the home often. Some pets are scared of strangers too. It is best to put your pet somewhere where it will not run outdoors or interfere with the technicians so that your service is smooth and efficient.
