Upholstery Stains Tips and Tricks

Upholstery cleaning can be tough for homeowners, especially with stubborn stains. DIY methods may worsen the stains and damage furniture. To effectively remove tough stains from your sofa, armchair, or loveseat, it’s best to seek help from experienced upholstery cleaning professionals. They can restore your furniture’s appearance and eliminate unsightly stains, especially those that are notoriously hard to remove.


Dealing with chocolate stains on upholstery, particularly melted chocolate or hot cocoa, can be a significant challenge. The dark color of chocolate readily stands out on lighter fabrics, and its protein, fat, and sugar content make it resistant to simple water-based removal methods. However, you can rely on Chem-Dry’s array of stain removal services specifically designed to effectively eliminate chocolate stains. Enjoy your chocolate treats without the worry of making a mess on your couch, and remember that you can always count on Chem-Dry of Charleston for assistance.


Whether you have kids who often get scrapes and bruises or you tend to be accident-prone yourself, dealing with blood stains on your upholstery can be a challenge. Blood stains are particularly stubborn due to their protein content and their noticeable bright color. However, our skilled team is well-equipped to handle this type of stain effectively. Simply focus on taking care of the injury, and trust us to take care of the stain.

Red Wine

Don’t let red wine stains stress you out! Whether you’re savoring a glass at home or entertaining guests, Chem-Dry of Charleston has the expertise to eliminate red wine stains from your furniture and upholstery. Forget the myth of using white wine – our specialized cleaning solution effectively breaks down and removes the stain at its root, ensuring a permanent removal.

Avoid Further Damage By Calling Our Upholstery Cleaning Team

When faced with a stain on your upholstery, the instinct to tackle it yourself by rubbing, scrubbing, or using various cleaning products may arise. However, these DIY attempts can often cause more harm than good. Rubbing can push the stain deeper into the fibers, making it harder to remove, while using the wrong product or method can further damage the fabric and worsen the stain. Trust our experts instead of attempting stain removal yourself. With our expertise, we can safely and effectively remove stains from different fabric types.

In addition to professional stain removal, we also offer upholstery protectant services. This proactive approach creates a protective barrier around the fibers of your upholstery, giving you more time to absorb any spills before they can cause a stain.

Leave upholstery stains to the experts at Chem-Dry of Charleston! Call (843) 766-0052 today to speak to a stain removal expert in Charleston.
