Following the cleaning, we advise that customers consider our Carpet and Upholstery Protector. These protectors safeguard your furniture in between cleanings, extending the life of each piece and protecting against stains and oils.Just like your carpeting, your furniture gives character and comfort to your home’s interior—and, just like your carpet, your furniture can also get dirty over time. At Reliable Carpet & Tile Cleaning, our technicians specialize in cleaning multiple types of fabrics. When you need your upholstered furniture rejuvenated, call Reliable Carpet. Our technicians use a 11 step cleaning process that extracts dirt, grime, and any cleaning solution from your fabric.


  • Pre- Inspect

Our technician will perform special tests to determine the content of your fabric. The content will determine what type of cleaning solutions and techniques will be used. We will also point out any potential permanent stains or areas of concern.

  • Area Preparation

We will prepare the area where the upholstery will be cleaned to protect your surrounding furnishings.

  • Pre- Vacuum

All textiles should be vacuumed thoroughly before cleaning. This step will remove dry soils and any loose particles from cracks and crevices.

  • Pre- Treat

Depending on your fabric, a special solution designed for your fabric type and the soiling condition will be applied to “emulsify” the soil.

  • Pre- Spot

Any potentially difficult spots will be pre-treated with special solutions to increase chances of removal.

  • Pre- Groom

The fabric will then be gently groomed using soft upholstery brushes to loosen the soil.

  • Soil Extraction and Rinse

The soil is then extracted from the fabric with a gentle, controlled rinse.

  • Neutralize

The fabric is then pH balanced to maintain it’s soft, fresh feel.

  • Post Spot

Any remaining spots will be treated with special stain removal products.

  • Post Groom

The upholstery will then be prepared for drying with a gentle combing of the fabric.

  • Post Cleaning Inspection

Our technician will review the cleaning results with you to insure that your expectations have been met or exceeded.

Fabric Protector

Cleaning Process

Fabric Protector


When you buy new furniture, they often ask if you would like to add fabric protector at the time of purchase. This protector is meant to extend the life of the furniture by protecting against stains and normal wear—but this protector wears off over time. By having the protector reapplied after we clean it, it will help maintain the beauty, color, and vibrancy of your furniture. 

We recommend reapplying upholstery protector after each cleaning. An upholstery protector will not make your fabric immune from stains and spills, but it should provide time to clean up a spill before a stain sets. When talking with our technicians, ask them about the Carpet and Upholstery Protector that extends the life of your furniture and carpet.
