How to Hire a Professional Upholstery Cleaner

You can tackle some furniture upholstery stains yourself, but there are times when it’s best to call in a professional.

Upholstery Repair

Upholstering is the process of covering a high-quality piece of furniture, antique or keepsake with materials such as fabric and padding. Freshen the look of a room by giving furniture a new look.

Quality leather furniture can last decades, but like almost any investment, it needs proper care and routine maintenance to hold up well.

Angie's Answers

I second the original question (still unanswered). Speaking as someone who logged in today to try to find an attorney, I see this category as one that's exactly what I have my Angie's List membership for:

1. It's important that I find a good one
2. I'm not an expert enough to know myself who is a good one
3. The industry is full of advertisements and misinformation
4. I wish I knew what experiences other people have had


?
I don't care about lawns--I planted mine in clover and don't have to mow it. When I do need to mow I use a rotary Fiskars mower, which is great--or a scythe. That's right--a scythe (the European type, which is smaller, and it's very good exercise). Gas-powered mowers, chemical fertilizers and weed killers--all nasty stuff that gets into everyone's air, soil, and water. I'm sure my neighbor doesn't like my wildflowers, semi-wild pockets of fruit bushes, and unmown areas and yes, dandelions (I have 10 acres) but that's too bad. It's better habitat for wildlife, especially the pollinators on which our food supply depends. I think this obsession with the Great American Lawn is a waste of time and resources. Plant some food instead.


?
I'm not sure Angie et. al. want you to have a complete answer to this question. By re-subscribing at the Indiana State Fair in 2012, I think I paid $20.00 per year for a multi- year subscription. Maybe even less. At the other extreme--and I hope my memory isn't faulty about this--I think the price, for my area, for ONE year was an outrageous $70.00. And they debited me automatically without warning. I had to opt out of that automatic charge. I like Angie's List, but if some of the companies they monitor behaved the way they do in this respect, they'd be on some sort of Pages of Unhappiness. I'll be interested to see if this comment gets published or censored out of existence.

That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.

You have to put your self in the shoes of a business that is in business to turn a profit of some sort. All businesses have different overhead which in turn decides what their bottom line would be on their services. I personally would not go with an unlicensed professional for this type of install. You are messing with gas, venting issues, electrical wiring{electric water heater} and updated code issues such as a drain pan and tempature and relief drain lines for heaters that currently do not have them. I do agree that there are some companies that are way out of line for their installs but most of these companies are the really big companies that have very high overheads  I would assume. Tank type water heaters have changed over the last several years and with these safety changes come bigger prices. The price of steel thanks to China is skyrocketing and tank type water heaters are made of steel. Most wholesale plumbing supply companies cannot match what the big box stores are selling at retail to consumers. I happen to think from research that heaters such as Rheem, Bradford White and AOSmith who have been in business forever make a better product than what you can buy in the big box outlets. You also have to take in consideration the location of the water heater that is being replaced. Is it in the house, basement, garage or attic. Most 40 and 50 gallon water heaters that are purchased in a plumbing wholesale store in Texas cost between 300-340 for a 6 year warranty heater with 6 year on parts and tank. Speaking of warranty. Most big box companies will take a least 24 hours to a week to get your warranty problem taken care of. Most reputable plumbing companies will give same day service if they installed the heater.

So lets break down a typical install at cost to a licensed plumber in Texas

Heater: $315, water shut off $6.50, water flex lines or unions to code $20, gas flex line and cut off to code $12, misc fittings $15, Total $368.50 Lets add a 35% profit which is some what low  for a business $129, Total 497.50

This doesnt  include permits, pan and drain or any venting issues. The vent must go from the heater to the outside of roof using double wall vent.

Cost of permit on average $60

Most plumbing companies allow for 3 hours of time for a water heater. This includes picking the new one up. Delivering out to house. Draining and removing old water heater. Hauling off old heater. Installing new heater up to code. Going down to city and pulling permit.

Average Labor charges for heater installs $400

That would make this install run without extras on any code issues $957.50

I just had a 50 gallon gas water heater installed in my house for $1200 but I needed a pan installed. I used a licensed plumber.

Todd said it best.

An itemized list / cost breakdown, more often than not is used against the contractor when it is shared with other builders who will then beat it.

Good contractors use good people, and good people cost more.  Just the cost of having the appropriate insurance / bond can be the difference between winning a job or losing it ot a 'lower bid'.

It is the rule of three; there is Good, Cheap and Fast.  You can have any two:  Good and Cheap, won't be Fast; Good and Fast, won't be Cheap;  Cheap and Fast, won't be Good!

When comparing bids, it isn't the cheapest or the 'nicest' person you should select.   You should understand why there is a large price difference (it shows there are gaps in your design program or what you have asked for specifically, which means there may be arguments later).  If most of the bids are in line, and one is way high or way low,  you want to know why before dismissing or selecting them.

A price-only decision almost always costs more in the long run. 

Good luck!

The slipcover was great. He had many fabrics to choose from and offered recommendations when I asked for them (pets, kids, etc). He came out, measured my couch and sort of himself a pattern. A few weeks later he came back out with the slipcover and put it on the couch.

These people are truly amazing. I got very personal and professional service. They had excellent fabrics to choose from, and provided advice that helped me choose the right option for different locations. For the kitchen sitting room couch, which gets an enormous amount of use from people and pets, they recommended a remanufactured leather which ...More is quite lovely and so much easier to care for. They also added cushioning to make the couch a bit more comfortable. I purchased a sectional couch that didn't fit down my basement stairs. They allowed my contractor to bring it to their work room where they opened up the upholstery. It then came back to my basement family room, was cut down to fit, and was then reupholstered using the same fabric. This truly involved going above and beyond any service I had a right to expect. Finally, the two living room chairs needed quite different things. One needed a bit of restoration before it could be reupholstered, and the other did not. Both turned out looking splendid and sitting very, very well. My family and friends constantly comment on the work I've had done by this business.

We contacted and DuRoche ( is a misspelling) to inquire about re-upholstering a bed headboard which we planned to purchase from a bedding store. suggested that not only could they do the upholstery but they could also construct the headboard. Her ballpark ...More pricing information for doing both sounded attractive so we decided to take the next step with her. She came by to look at our bed, made a detailed proposal, and had a large array of fabric samples from which we could make a choice. She was very knowledgeable, professional and personable. She had lots of great suggestions. She wrote up a purchase order and was willing to modify it to include things we wanted such as the use of non-toxic materials and a "complete by" date. The next step was for , who would construct and upholster the headboard, to stop by to look at the bed. Both of them stopped by and worked collaboratively with us to plan the dimensions and configuration. delivered and installed the finished headboard a day or two after the due date which was fine with us. We can't say enough good things about the finished product! The detail on the seams is perfect. The upholstered headboard looks great, is just the right size, and mates perfectly with the bed. even designed the upholstery so the it fits snuggly with the mattress as it raises and . Note that the DuRoches also do business under the name White Cloud Industries, Inc.

this is a business you can trust. came out, checked out the chairs and told us how we could fix the problem easily ourselves. He also gave advice about replacing a leg on an antique ottoman.
Years ago, I had 's reupholster a different ottoman, and they did a wonderful job.

I was so pleased with a previous job by that when I picked up the first order, I decided to have more work done: No one wanted to sit on our small couch because the back cushions sagged and did not offer any support. did a wonderful job of re-stuffing them so that they are firm and have definite structure. ...More It's like having a new piece of furniture in our living room!

Three of the four chairs had torn seats, which had been patched over the years with electrical tape and duct tape, making them quite unsightly. did a wonderful job in one week's time of replacing all four seats. They also cleaned the chrome, which, together with the new vinyl, makes the chairs look almost new. I look ...More forward to sitting on them around our table for many years to come!

They were prompt in coming to give the estimate and then in picking up and dropping off the piece. The work was done quickly and professionally and you really couldn't tell when the piece had been completed that it had been repaired.

I was very pleased with the experience. gave good suggestions. I thought I would need the cushions replaced but he pointed out that the stuffing was of good quality. I was considering some fabric from 's that was on sale .When I told him the cost of the fabric he informed me that using that fabric ...More would be a better deal than getting it through him. Once I brought in the fabric, it only took a few days to get the work done. I rated the work a B because it was good but not perfect. I am happy with the results for this project.I would use him again.
