Can I Use a Carpet Cleaner on Upholstery?

Usually, when we think of stains in the home, we’re more worried about the carpet. Which makes sense – it’s used more often. From the areas that see a lot of foot traffic, or where our four-legged family members had accidents, or maybe a spilled drink during a holiday gathering.

Cleaning our furniture rarely enters the equation, though. Let’s face it: if we accidentally spill something on one of the cushions, we’re more than likely to just flip it over if we can. But sooner or later, you’re going to run out of sides to flip to. So you may be wondering: can I use carpet cleaner on upholstery?

Just like with the carpet, if we can use a vacuum cleaner to pick up the visible dirt, dust, pet hair, and other loose debris off the couch, we will. We even have upholstery attachments to get down to the seams of the cushions and get a quiet satisfaction when we hear all the stuff we vacuum out.

For deep cleaning of fabric couches, though, it may be time to go a little deeper to get ground in dirt or stains. There are several spot cleaners available for carpeting and carpet cleaning machines available for rent. But will they work for couch cleaning? Can you clean your sofa with products and equipment made for carpet?

The short answer is probably. Depending on the type of upholstery cleaning you have to do – there aren’t too many leather carpets out there – just make sure to read the ingredients of the cleaning solution to see if there are any limitations on materials. If you’re renting a machine, make sure it’s appropriate for your upholstery.
