We all know that accidents happen, especially when it comes to spills and stains on our upholstery. Whether it’s chocolate from a late-night snack or red wine from a dinner party, these stains can be tough to remove and can often make our furniture look worn out and shabby. While it may be tempting to try and tackle these stains with DIY methods, this can often worsen the problem and damage your upholstery. That’s where professional upholstery cleaning services come in.

At Grace Chem-Dry, we have years of experience helping homeowners remove stubborn stains from their sofas, armchairs, and loveseats. Our team of experts uses safe and effective cleaning methods to remove stains and leave your upholstery looking new. Here are four common, hard-to-remove stains that we can help you tackle:


Chocolate Stains 

Chocolate stains can be a real headache, particularly when they’re in the form of hot cocoa spills or melted chocolate. The composition of chocolate, consisting of protein, fat, and sugar, makes it quite challenging to eliminate using water alone. Fortunately, you don’t have to give up on your favorite clothing items just because of a chocolate stain. Grace Chem-Dry offers various stain removal products to tackle chocolate stains on multiple fabrics. With our expertise, you can rest assured that your chocolate-stained carpets or upholstery will look as good as new in no time.


Blood Stains

It’s not uncommon for children or adults to get scrapes and bruises occasionally. However, dealing with the resulting blood stains on your upholstery can be challenging. Blood stains can be tough to remove due to the blood’s protein and vivid color. But with our experienced team, you can leave the task of removing these stubborn stains to us. We understand that you prioritize caring for the affected person when an injury occurs. That’s why we take the burden of removing blood stains off your shoulders, allowing you to focus on what matters. Trust us to take care of the stain so you can care for your loved ones.


Tomato Sauce Stains

Tomato sauce stains are notorious for being stubborn and difficult to remove, as the bright red color can easily seep into fabrics and leave behind unsightly marks. Furthermore, the oily or greasy nature of the sauce can make the stain even more persistent. However, there is no longer a need to fret about these pesky stains, as our team possesses the knowledge and skills to safely and effectively remove them from your upholstery. With our expertise and specialized techniques, we can help restore your furniture to its original pristine condition, free from the lingering traces of tomato sauce.


Red Wine Stains

If you’re a red wine lover, you may have experienced the anxiety that comes with the possibility of spilling on your upholstery. Red wine stains are notoriously difficult to remove, leaving unsightly marks that can be frustrating to deal with. Fortunately, there’s a solution to this problem. Our specialty cleaning solution can break down and remove red wine stains at the source, leaving your upholstery clean and stain-free. So next time you pour yourself a glass of red wine, you can relax and enjoy it without worrying about the potential for spills and stains on your furniture.
