Forum Title: How to clean sofas?
Hello everyone!Nice day to all! So my grandparents have been asking me to clean their sofas and I, for some reason unbeknownst to me accepted. They have 3 couches, and i am going to start with the small one. The small one has 3 pieces to it, the body, the back cushion, and the seat cushion. The body is made up of 60% polyester fiber batting and 40% polyurethane foam.The back cushion is 80% polyester fiber and 20% polyurethane foam. Finally, the seat cushion is 90% polyurethane foam and 10% polyester fiber batting. So how do i go about cleaning this? Thanks in advance!

I use Genesis 950 for my upholstery. I have done it a couple different ways. The first way is with a carpet shampooer. My machine has 2 compartments. One for water, one for formula. I put the 950 in the formula section. I should also tell you this only works if you have an attachment on your machine. I then use the attachment and go over the furniture with it. The second way is by hand. I mix the 950 & water in a spray bottle, spray the area I am cleaning, then go over it with a sponge - scrubbing the stained areas harder. Generally I do it by hand when I am doing a real thorough job or when the stains are bigger. I usually use the machine when I am doing the carpets and have it out. My cushions do come off. I wash those in the washing machine with 1/4 cup of the Genesis 950. However it is very important you never dry the cushion covers in the dryer or they may shrink. I always air dry them.

They need to hire a professional with preferably a truck monted system or a high powered portable.

Omg it is very important that they do nothing but higher a professional for this task. If not some very bad things can happen that are not limited to not getting it clean. Sometimes it can end up worse than it was to start with so definitely proceed with caution.
