As part of our commercial cleaning services, ServiceMaster Restoration by Zaba provides commercial upholstery cleaning services for businesses throughout the Chicago area and surrounding suburbs.

commercial upholstery 

Sofas, chairs, office and lounge furniture are in constant use and can show soil and dirt quickly. Although not often visible, upholstery collects contaminants such as dead skin cells, oils, dirt and dust that can only be removed with a thorough professional cleaning.

Upholstered items also come in a variety of fabrics, textures and blends. And asking maintenance staff to attempt cleaning upholstered items can result in improper cleaning that causes shrinkage, color bleeding or discoloration. ServiceMaster Restoration by Zaba upholstery experts eliminate the guesswork and select the best cleaning method for your office furniture and its condition, utilizing equipment created to remove the most soil possible.

Our technicians use specially designed products, equipment and methods to achieve the best results. ServiceMaster Restoration by Zaba products are safe for all kinds of upholstery and fabrics and non-toxic to visitors and employees. We remove stains and spots already present and reduce the effects of wear on furniture and remove persistent odors. Office furnishings are cleaned on-site and are ready for use the next business morning. No matter what your service needs, budget or schedule, we will design a plan to fit your needs.

A clean and well cared for facility can make people feel welcome and valued, but not if the furniture is soiled, dusty or stained. Keep upholstery’s appearance in top-notch shape and help avoid early replacement costs with deep cleaning from the professionals at ServiceMaster Restoration by Zaba.

Besides our upholstery cleaning service, we offer our clients a broad selection of commercial cleaning services (including green cleaning, by request!)

Tips for keeping your upholstery looking its best

  • Upholstered furniture should be vacuumed on a regular basis to remove dust and loose dirt.
  • When trying to clean up a spill, it’s best to blot instead of rub and work from the edges of a spot to the center. Both techniques have been known to prevent spreading.
  • Modern furniture fabrics are usually very resilient to sunlight. However, under extreme exposure, even these fabrics show signs of fading, it is best to avoid direct sunlight.
