3 Hardest Upholstery Stains to Remove

Cleaning upholstery can be tough for homeowners, especially with stains. DIY methods may worsen stains and harm furniture. Seeking an experienced upholstery cleaner can help with stubborn stains on your sofa, armchair, or loveseat, renewing their appearance and removing unsightly stains. This is particularly true for the three common and hard-to-remove stains.


Chocolate stains, especially melted chocolate or hot cocoa, can be a major issue on upholstery. The dark color of chocolate can easily show up on lighter fabrics, and the combination of protein, fat, and sugar in chocolate can make it difficult to remove with water alone. However, Chem-Dry has a range of stain removal solutions that can effectively lift away chocolate stains. Enjoy your treats without worrying about making a mess on your couch, and know if you do, just call Integrity First Chem-Dry.


If you have kids who are prone to scrapes and bruises, or if you are just accident-prone yourself, you may have to deal with blood stains on your upholstery. Blood stains can be difficult to remove due to the protein in the blood and the bright color. However, our experienced team knows how to effectively tackle this type of stain. Just worry about taking care of the injury and leaving the stain to us. 

Red Wine

Red wine is well-known for causing stains. If you enjoy a glass of wine at home or host dinner parties, you don’t have to worry about red wine spilling and leaving a stain on your furniture or upholstery. Chem-Dry has years of experience helping homeowners remove red wine stains from their chairs and other upholstery. And no, contrary to popular belief we don’t just pour white wine on the stain. Our specialty cleaning solution breaks down and removes the stain at the source to remove it for good. 

Avoid Further Damage By Calling Our Upholstery Cleaning Team

Removing stains from upholstery yourself can cause more harm than good, pushing the pigment deeper and degrading the fabric. It’s best to trust our experts who have the knowledge and experience to safely and effectively remove stains from various 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.
