HOW TO CARE FOR FURNITURE WITH FABRIC UPHOLSTERY
Whether your upholstered furnishings are purely decorative or serve functional and stylish purposes, the careful cleaning and maintenance of fabric provides for long-term satisfaction.
There are a few basic rules for getting the most out of your fabric seat and ensuring its longevity:
- Do not place your seat near a functioning fireplace.
- Avoid exposure to excessive sunlight.
- Be careful with jeans that can stain fabric as these stains may be permanent.
- Keep away from pets with sharp claws and other sharp objects (e.g. nails, buckles, etc.).
Routine maintenance helps keep your upholstered furniture in perfect condition. Vacuum the upholstery regularly to keep the fabric in good condition and prevent dust, hair, and crumbs from settling into the body of the furniture. Be careful with fringes and tassels: vacuum on a low setting only.
Remove accidental stains as soon as possible but never with harsh soaps or detergents. In the case of an old and dried-up stain, the first step is always to vacuum.
For stain removal, use a specialized stain cleaner such as HG Stain Remover or a similar product. Always follow the instructions on the packaging and test the product first on a less conspicuous part of the upholstery.
Regularly hand-fluff and reverse cushions to maintain their original softness and springiness.
