FAQs

  • Introduction

    If you're looking for an upholstery professional to repair or clean your furniture, it's easy to become overwhelmed with choices. There are plenty of businesses out there offering upholstery care and repair services, but selecting the best one for you depends on your specific needs. Are you looking to remove water stains? Do you need to disinfect the upholstery on your furniture? Maybe you're wondering if your curtains are considered upholstery. Whatever you're seeking, you'll find some useful information here to help you make an informed decision.

  • What is upholstery?

    Upholstery is the work or the art form of fitting chairs and sofas with padded coverings. Upholstery is also the term used to describe the textile covering itself that fits a sofa or chair. Fabric, padding, webbing, and springs can all be considered part of the upholstery.

  • Are upholstery fabrics fire retardant?

    In the United States, there is no requirement from the federal government mandating the treatment of upholstery fabrics with fire-retardant (FR) chemicals. In fact, it's thought that just 0.2% of all upholstery fabrics in U.S. residential homes are treated to be fire retardant. The state of California has banned the use of fire retardants in consumer products as of January 1, 2020.

  • Are upholstery staples different from regular staples?

    You can use any wire staples for upholstery, but 20 to 22 gauge staples are typically the best option. The staple gauge you select for your upholstery will depend on the type and thickness of the fabric. For extremely heavy upholstery you'll want to use 18-19 gauge wire staples. Always wear protective eyewear when operating a staple gun.

  • Are curtains considered upholstery?

    Generally, no, curtains are not considered upholstery because upholstery fabric is much stiffer, thicker, and denser than the fabric used to make curtains. However, if you like the look and feel of upholstery fabric, it is possible to use it to make curtains.

  • Can upholstery be steam cleaned?

    Yes, steam cleaning upholstery is one of the best ways to revitalize your furniture. A steamer will deodorize and sanitize your upholstery for a fresh, clean look and feel. Just make sure that you vacuum the upholstery before steaming to remove any crumbs or other debris on the furniture.

  • Can upholstery fabric be painted or dyed?

    You can paint most types of upholstery fabric, but doing so can make the fabric feel stiff and take away from the softness that is part of upholstery's appeal. It's possible to dye many types of upholstery fabric as long as the material is fiber. This includes fabrics like cotton, wool, velvet, and polyester.
