Many residential cleaning machines are not equipped for cleaning upholstery, even though they come with a hand wand.

The first problem faced is that the material will become dirty a lot easier. More disgusting problems if revolve around the development of mold and bacteria growth. It can also allow odors to develop. The combination of these problems can make your upholstered furniture unusable.
While many homeowners feel they can handle maintaining their own upholstery cleaning needs, a great majority of them regret the decision soon after. If your upholstery needs to be cleaned, it is probably best to hire a trained professional from the start.
When it comes to residential machines, carpet is more forgiving. Fabric on the other hand, is less tolerant if you make a mistake in choosing a cleaning solution, or machine. By having a professional clean your upholstery on a regular basis, you will notice that it looks cleaner, feels cleaner, and smells a lot fresher.
