Why Do I Need To Have My Furniture Professionally Cleaned? Steam Cleaning, Victoria BC


My Furniture Does Not Look Dirty?

Did you know that DUST is the number ONE enemy of upholstered furniture.  Gritty matter blows in through open doors and windows and the result is that it settles into your furniture cushions and back.  Then when you sit on the cushion the oils from your skin compress the dirt into the fabric where it’s almost not possible to remove with vacuum cleaning. 

The abrasive action of the grit pressing into the fibre actually CUTS just like a knife – that’s why your furniture wears out.  The combination of pollens, food crumbs, dust mites and what they leave behind on your furniture accumulates with soil within a the short span of just a year (with an average family).  If you have pets and kids your furniture needs to be cleaned thoroughly at least once a year. 

BACTERIA AND GERMS are the result of soils that are not removed from furniture on a regular basis.  The side-effect of decaying living materials decomposing is an odor that characterizes furniture that has not been cleaned regularly.


Because today’s fabrics are designed to HIDE dirt with patterns and colors…But just because it doesn’t show doesn’t mean it’s not there.


If you’re a retired couple, probably every 2 years.  If you have an active family with 3-5 kids and pets – I suggest at LEAST once a year.  You get the idea, right!  You will be amazed at the difference a good cleaning will make for your upholstery.  This is especially true if you suffer from allergies.  Our goal is to create the healthiest homes for our clients in Victoria. 

Why Professional Cleaning?

Because Victoria Carpet Care uses special cleaning agents that sanitize and remove soil from your fabric furniture with extremely hot water and professional cleaning products and tools. 

Many Fabrics are Delicate

If you try spot cleaning furniture you can RUIN it by not getting it evenly wet.  We have seen many instances of damage done to furniture by clients who’ve tried to clean it themselves.  Never use a product with a bleaching product in it. 

How Much Does It Cost? 

Most furniture cleaning is done by the linear foot, but factors such as soil conditions and the difficulty of the piece affect the price.  That is why we are always happy to provide a FREE in-home cleaning estimate.  That way you will know the exact price.  Victoria Carpet Care has NO hidden fees!  If that is not enough, we offer the most thorough cleaning ever, or its FREE... that's our guarantee!
