An expert cleanser will restore the look of your items and eliminate those unsightly blemishes quickly; especially when dealing with these typical tough-to-remove discolorations.

We’ve got this covered – so just focus on taking care of any injuries, whilst we take care of those pesky blotches.

Red Wine

If you’re a fan of red wine, fear not! Chem-Dry has decades of experience in helping homeowners rid their furniture and upholstery from those pesky red wine stains. Contrary to popular opinion, we don’t just pour white wine on the stain; rather, our expert cleaning solution works at the source to eliminate it completely – no more worrying about spills while sipping that delicious glass or hosting dinner parties with friends!

Avoid Further Damage By Calling Our Upholstery Cleaning Team

While you may be tempted to try and tackle a stain on your upholstery yourself by scrubbing or using an array of different cleaning products, this can often cause more harm than good. Rubbing the area could actually spread the pigment further into the fibers, making it even harder to remove in future attempts. Using the wrong product or method can also degrade the fabric and make the stain worse. Instead of trying to remove the stain yourself, it is best to leave it in the hands of our experts. We have the knowledge and experience to safely and effectively remove stains from various types of fabrics.

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 Green Team Chem-Dry! Call  (828) 979-3338 today to speak to a stain removal expert in Hickory, NC.
