Don't risk turning a bad situation into something worse by doing it yourself. Upholstery Cleaning stains and odors are often best left to the professionals.

Before cleaning a recliner, I ask if there are any particular spots that might need special attention. Many times there are pet stains around the lower edges of the recliner where a pet likes to lay. The arms of the recliner are often very dirty and need extra cleaning. I start in the back of the recliner and work my way around the sides. I then open up the recliner so I can clean all the hidden areas of the recliner.
