Adding new furniture to your home can be exciting and refreshing. A new couch or upholstered chair can update the look and feel of your home. Unfortunately, that new furniture won’t stay clean forever. Regular upholstery cleaning can help your couches last longer, but eventually, there will be a spill that you won’t be able to remove without help.

Is Your Upholstery Stained?

If you are having trouble removing a stubborn stain from your sofa, armchair, or loveseat, it may be best to seek the help of an experienced upholstery cleaning professional like Immaculate Home Chem-Dry in the South Bay and Orange County. Our skilled technicians can help improve the appearance of your furnishings and remove any unsightly stains. This is true when dealing with these four common, hard-to-remove stains. 


If your children are prone to getting scrapes and bruises, or if you find yourself accident-prone, you might encounter blood stains on your upholstery. Removing blood stains can be challenging due to the proteins and vivid color present. Nevertheless, our skilled carpet cleaning team is well-equipped to handle this specific type of stain effectively both on your furniture and your carpets. Focus on tending to the injuries of your kids, and entrust the stain removal to us.


chocolate stains are a common upholstery stain, particularly those from melted chocolate or hot cocoa. The dark hue of chocolate tends to stand out prominently on lighter fabrics, and the mixture of protein, fat, and sugar in chocolate makes it resistant to removal with water alone. Fortunately, Chem-Dry offers an effective stain removal process designed to efficiently lift away chocolate stains. Indulge in your treats without concerns about leaving a mess on your couch, and should the need arise, simply reach out to Immaculate Home Chem-Dry for assistance.

Tomato Sauce

Eliminating tomato sauce stains poses a particular challenge due to the vibrant red color and the common presence of oil or grease. While these stains may be stubborn, you shouldn’t let the fear of spills prevent you or your kids from savoring your favorite Italian dishes. In the event of a tomato sauce mishap on your upholstery, there’s no need to worry – our team is ready to assist you.

Red Wine

Red wine is notorious for causing stains, and if you relish a glass at home or frequently host dinner parties, there’s no need to fret about red wine spills tarnishing your furniture or upholstery. With years of expertise, Chem-Dry is well-versed in assisting homeowners in effectively eliminating red wine stains from chairs and other upholstery. Contrary to common belief, we don’t simply resort to pouring white wine on the stain. Instead, our specialized cleaning solution adeptly breaks down and eradicates the stain at its source, ensuring a thorough and permanent removal.

Choose Professional Upholstery Cleaning Instead of DIY

When a stain appears on your upholstery, the impulse to tackle it yourself through rubbing, scrubbing, or employing various cleaning products may arise. While there are blogs about homemade stain removal solutions, these DIY attempts can often worsen the situation. Rubbing, in particular, might drive the pigment deeper into the fibers, escalating the difficulty of stain removal. 

Additionally, using an unsuitable product or method can compromise the fabric and exacerbate the stain. Rather than taking matters into your own hands, entrust the task to the experts at Immaculate Home Chem-Dry. Possessing the necessary knowledge and experience, we can safely and efficiently eliminate stains from a variety of fabrics.

Beyond professional stain removal, our services extend to upholstery protectant applications. This proactive measure establishes a safeguarding barrier around the fibers, affording you more time to address spills before they have the chance to develop into stubborn stains.
