Tips for day-to-day upholstery care
Rotate all loose cushions frequently to assure even wear. Vacuum dust & dirt from all fabric, cracks and crevasses. By far, fabric protection is the best way to extend the life of your upholstery.
- Vacuum often to reduce grit that can cause abrasion.
- Reverse loose cushions weekly for even wear.
- Protect from the sun: Ultraviolet light can cause deterioration and discoloration.
- Keep pets off of furniture, Pets' body oil rubs off and is very difficult to remove.
- Use caution with clothing such as blue jeans as fabric dyes can transfer onto your upholstery.
All upholstered furniture will become soiled through use. Most spills and soil on fabric-protection treated upholstery will clean easily and quickly, provided that the proper upholstery cleaning procedures are followed. A fabric protection application is not an absolute impenetrable barrier, and improper upholstery cleaning methods can damage both the fabric and the protection treatment.
- Always blot (don't rub) spills immediately with a clean absorbent dry cloth while the spill is still fresh. Dried spills and older stains are more difficult to remove.
- Identify the cleaning code for your type of fabric. This is helpful to determine the type of cleaner for you to use when treating spots and spills.
- Always read and follow the instructions on the cleaning agent.
- Use distilled water with the cleaning agent if water is called for (W & WS codes only)
- Pretest any cleaner on any fabric in a hidden area. Check for color fastness and fabric compatibility.
- Keep a small spill small - work lightly, blotting from center to edges. "Feather" the edges by dampening edges irregularly and blotting quickly to avoid rings.
- Quickly dry a cleaned spot by using a small fan or blow dryer on low, directed across the fabric.
