Textiles


Like all other objects, upholstered furniture attracts dust and becomes dirty. However, you should be aware of not allowing the upholstery to get too dirty, as it will make the subsequent cleaning more difficult. Also keep in mind that dust and dirt increase wear and tear, generate an unhealthy indoor climate and diminish any fire-resistant features. Regular maintenance is therefore necessary in order to maintain the upholstery’s looks and to prolong its longevity.  


 



Loose cushions should be patted down regularly in order to maintain their shape.

Regular Maintenance
Vacuum-clean often, preferably once a week, with a soft mouthpiece at medium suction.

Stain Removal
∆ Before you remove tough stains, you should always check the upholstery producer’s recommendations regarding specific materials.


You will get the best result if the stain is removed immediately.

Stains from thick or solid materials should be scraped off with a dull knife or spatula before further action is taken. A dry stain should be vacuum-cleaned to remove any loose particles before further action is taken.

If liquids are spilt, use a clean napkin or cloth to soak up the liquids before further action is taken. Non-greasy stains should be removed by dabbing a lint-free cloth or sponge wrung in clean, hot water. You should work your way from the outer edges toward the middle of the stain. Greasy stain should be removed by using purposeful cleaning agents. However, all cleaning agents should be tested on a non-visible area before use.

In order to avoid discolouring and blotches, we recommend drying the upholstery with a hairdryer. The upholstery should be completely dry before use.

When many or larger stains are present it often requires a special technique or treatment. Thus it is recommended to contact a proffessionel cleaning service before trying to remove tougher stains yourself.

∆ Due to surplus die, dark jeans may leave smudges on the upholstery. Unfortunately, this cannot always be avoided by pre-washing or dry cleaning.

∆ Please note that you should NEVER rub the upholstery as this could damage both material and colouring.

∆ Be careful when using solvents, as they may dissolve underlying upholstery materials.

∆ Never use undiluted cleaning agents, including bleach, ammonium and soap suitable for hard surfaces.
