Home Upholstery Stain Removal Guide

Reliable Carpet & Upholstery Care has been cleaning upholstery in the GTA for nearly two decades and we have seen and treated upholstery stains of all varieties. We have compiled this guide to help you to treat some of the most common upholstery stains at home. Simply 'click' on select a type from the table below. Before trying any of the remedies in this guide, please consider the following:

  • Treat stains as soon as possible after staining. The older the stain, the more difficult it will be to remove. Some older stains cannot be removed.
  • Before attempting any home stain removal, always test on a small, hidden part of the fabric, to make sure the dyes in the fibres will not run.
  • Once you are certain that you will not damage your beautiful upholstery by spot cleaning, proceed carefully.
  • If you are not 100% sure, or if it appears that the solutions may damage your upholstery, it's time to call a professional. Call Reliable Carpet & Upholstery Care and rely on their expertise.
