At Baltimore Carpet & Upholstery, we know the importance of professional upholstery cleaning services. With our expertise and experience in effective stain removal for different types of upholstery, we want to share with you the top 5 hardest stains to remove from upholstery.
Before identifying the hardest stains on your furniture, let's understand what causes them. Common types of stains on upholstered fabrics include food spills, pet urine and feces accidents, ink or pen marks from children doodling or writing homework assignments at home; oil-based products like makeup removers being spilled accidentally over an armrest and red wine spills as examples.
Stains like coffee, wine, and ink can be tough to remove. The success of stain removal depends on several factors, such as the type of fabric (natural or synthetic), the colorfastness rating of the dyes or inks used during production, and the cleaning history of the item. The construction methods, such as tufting and frequency of cleanings, can also affect the outcome.
No matter how careful you are, upholstery stains can happen at any time. Some of the most stubborn stains out there can be a real challenge when it comes to removing them completely. Here are the top five tenacious stains that always give homeowners a tough time:

Upholstery stains can have health implications as allergens, mold spores, bacteria, and dust mites can accumulate over time within upholstered fabrics, posing risks to children and especially those with asthma and skin conditions. This buildup can cause respiratory complications such as allergies, resulting in coughing or sneezing fits that affect the general well-being of everyone in the household, including pets. Additionally, strangers can potentially bring in pollen, dust, dander, and pet hair.
Fortunately, we offer ample protection through our proven techniques, equipment, and reliable sanitizing solutions. These are specially designed to remove the aforementioned irritants, assist with fresher air and breathing, and provide restful sleep.
Whether you're dealing with a grease-stained suede couch or outdoor upholstery fabric, such as outdoor wicker chair covers, it's always best to leave professional upholstery cleaning services to those who are experienced and trained to handle different fabric types. Enlisting the services of Baltimore Carpet & Upholstery can reduce the likelihood of making errors that can result in accidental discoloration or tears. This can happen if you unwittingly ignore instructions, such as avoiding pre-treatments on fabrics when they are not required, which may lead to issues during the deep cleaning cycle.
Our most common and effective upholstery cleaning methods include hot water extraction (steam cleaning), chemical foam dry-cleaning, rotary shampooing and finally a light wiping using microfiber or cotton towels.
