how much does sofa cleaning cost

Having your sofa professionally cleaned is the best way to preserve its lifespan over the years.


A sofa cleaning service can deep clean your sitting area, tackling even the toughest stains and removing any build up of dirt imaginable.


Doing it yourself is often very cumbersome and the results often less than impressive. You won't have that fresh feeling and the sofa itself will take ages to dry.


What's more, many sofas are made of different materials, each requiring separate cleaning treatments. For example, you wouldn't clean a suede sofa in the same way as a fabric one.


With so many benefits of having your sofa cleaned, the next question people ask is 'how much does sofa cleaning cost' and is it even worth it?


In this blog post, we aim to answer those questions so let's dive in.


How much does sofa cleaning cost?


While not every material sofa is the same, nor is every job equal in terms of product and time usage, here is the average cost of sofa cleaning:

  • 2 seater sofa £40

  • 3 seater sofa £50

  • 3 seater corner sofa £55

  • 4 seater sofa £55

  • 4 seater corner sofa £60

  • 5 seater corner sofa £70


These prices are based on averages. If you have particularly tough stains to remove then the prices can increase, whereas if your sofas just need a freshen up then they could cost less.


It's always important to remember that companies will have a minimum charge fee.

We set our minimum call out charge at £50 for local customers and £100 after 10 miles.


Other companies will do similar so just be aware that it may cost that bit extra if you have one job only to get done.

Leather and suede are specialist materials that require a different method of cleaning. Because of that, it is a more of a product and time heavy process to do it safely.


Will I get a discount for multiple sofa bookings?


Yes most upholstery cleaners will offer a discount for multiple bookings so it's definitely worth considering.


For example, we offer a 20% discount off when you book 2 sofas of the same or similar materials. This would mean that If you had two 2 seater sofas requiring a clean it would cost £64 rather than £80.
