When you or a family member accidentally spills on the couch, it can be frustrating to clean up. Adding stains to the mix means more of a headache for you. If you are having trouble removing a stain from your sofa, armchair, or loveseat, it may be best to get help from the experienced upholstery cleaning team here at Immaculate Home Chem-Dry. We can refresh the look of your furnishings and get rid of any unsightly stains. Since not all stains are created equal, here is a list of four stains that are the most challenging. 


If you have kids who are prone to scrapes and bruises, or if you are just accident-prone yourself, you may have to deal with blood stains on your upholstery. Blood stains can be difficult to get rid of and may require special cleaning methods in order to remove them. Blood stains are made up of proteins, which can bond with fibers and fabrics, making them hard to remove without the right products or techniques. Luckily, Immaculate Home Chem-Dry has the right cleaning solutions to remove blood stains in your upholstery.

Red Wine

Red wine is well-known for causing stains. We understand how annoying red wine spills can be – they’re not only stubbornly persistent but they often leave behind an unsightly discoloration in the fabric. Contrary to popular belief, we don’t just pour white wine on the stain. Our unique carbonated cleaning solutions are safer and more effective than other solutions available. You can enjoy your next date night at home, regardless of any spilled wine.


Chocolate stains can be particularly difficult to remove from upholstery and carpets. The dark color of chocolate can easily show up on lighter fabrics, and the combination of protein, fat, and sugar in chocolate will require more than just water to remove. However, Chem-Dry has a variety of stain removal products that can penetrate deep into most stains, including chocolate. Enjoy your guilty pleasures without feeling guilty for any accidental messes made.

Tomato Sauce

Tomato stains can be notoriously difficult to clean. Luckily, our upholstery cleaning services are here to help! Our trained technicians use powerful cleaning solutions and innovative equipment to eliminate the toughest tomato stains from your carpets and upholstery. We offer fast, effective stain removal that won’t damage delicate fabrics or fibers.  If you do have a tomato sauce accident on your upholstery, don’t worry – our team is here to help. 

Avoid Further Damage By Calling Our Upholstery Cleaning Team

When it comes to stains, the best thing you can do is act quickly. The longer a stain sits, the more difficult it may be to remove. However, if you attempt to clean the stain yourself without knowing exactly how to do so, you could make it worse. Certain cleaning products and techniques that are effective for one type of fabric or surface can be harmful to another. Rubbing a stained area can actually push the pigment deeper into the fibers, making the stain more difficult to remove. Immaculate Home Chem-Dry has experts that can help homeowners in Orange County and the South Bay. We have done the research necessary so that we can offer you an effective upholstery cleaning service.

In addition to professional stain removal, we also offer carpet protectant services. This proactive approach creates a protective barrier around the fibers of your carpets. This protective barrier gives you more time to try and clean up the stain before it sets in your furniture. Many stains can be completely avoided if cleaned moments after they occur. Our protectant services provide you with the longer moment you may need.
