Yes, Your Couch Smells – Here’s What You Can Do About It

Does your couch smell? If so, a professional upholstery cleaning can get it smelling as good as new again.

Have you been sitting down on the couch lately and noticed that something doesn’t smell right? Your couch doesn’t smell clean to you and that can be a problem. That’s because if you haven’t cleaned your couch in a while, those smells can build up. This causes your couch to have an odor. Today, we’re going to talk about how upholstery cleaning can get rid of the smells from your couch.

What Causes Your Couch to Smell?

Simply put, daily use of your couch can cause it to smell over time. Whether you spilled something on it or your pets decided to climb on it, a couch that isn’t cleaned will have smells build up. Unless you clean it constantly or put a protective cover on your couch, at some point, you’re going to have to deal with unwanted odors.

What Can You Do About It?

The best thing you can do to get smells out of your couch is to hire a professional. The team at California Steam Clean will put your couch through an extensive process to ensure that it is thoroughly cleaned and smells fresh.

Here are the steps we will take to remove odors from your couch:


One of our technicians will come in and inspect your couch. This means they will look for any problem areas like possible permanent stains. Once they do this, they’ll talk to you about their evaluation. Then, we’ll discuss the possible results of cleaning.

Commercial Pre-Vacuum

We will run a vacuum to pick up any dry dirt and debris that may have worked its way into the crevices of your couch and cushions.


This is when we apply a preconditioning agent. This will break down more problematic areas and make general cleaning easier.


This is another layer of pre-treatment. We use special solutions that help increase the chances of dirt being removed.


Our last layer of pre-treatment massages the surface to further loosen any dirt.

Soil Extraction and Rinse

Then we rinse the carpet with a powerful extraction cleaning system. We also make sure to not overwet your couch or leave a sticky residue behind.


We clean your carpet with a pH-balanced cleaner so your couch is left feeling soft and fresh.


We will add an extra level of treatment to give your couch an extra level of clean.


This will help prevent the fibers of your couch being distorted and can help it dry faster.

Post-Cleaning Inspection

Our technician will do one last thorough inspection to ensure the job was done correctly and show you the difference so you can see the results for yourself.
