How to Steam Clean your Sofa Yourself!

Vacuuming doesn't always restore a sofa's clean appearance. For heavily soiled sofas, shampooing is recommended, rather than spot-cleaning. Wet-cleaner machines spray and remove hot detergent solution while cleaning the sofa. Here are a few steps to get your sofa looking clean as new.

  • Step 1

    Purchase or rent a wet-cleaner machine also known as a steamer, at a hardware or grocery store. When you rent a machine, the necessary cleaning products are usually included or can be purchased at the rental store.

  • Step 2

    Vacuum the floor thoroughly.

  • Step 3

    Spray heavily soiled areas with pre-spray or traffic-lane cleaner. For really dirty areas, increase the amount of pre-spray used instead of increasing the amount of sofa shampoo.

  • Step 4

    Fill the machine's hose or reservoir with hot tap water.

  • Step 5

    Use the machine and sofa shampoo according to the steamer manufacturer's instructions.

  • Step 6

    Maximize the amount of water removed from the sofa by making a water-extraction pass with the water spray on, and then again with the spray off. Test the sofa with your hand. If your hand comes away with water droplets, extract again with the spray off; if your hand comes away damp and the sofa feels wrung out, you have extracted correctly.

  • Step 7

    Wait overnight for the sofa to dry before walking on it. To dry thoroughly, open windows and use fans.

A properly maintained sofa promotes improved indoor air quality for your home, your family, your office.
