Care Tips for Textiles and Fabrics
Vacuum the surface of your furniture regularly, including the deck under the cushions, with the upholstery attachments of your vacuum cleaner.
Direct sunlight can cause the fabrics to fade. Care should be taken to limit the amount of direct sun on any piece of furniture.
Loose cushions should be flipped and rotated frequently to minimize soiling and add to the longevity of your upholstery.
All spills should be cleaned immediately, start by blotting the spill using a clean, absorbent cloth. If stain remains, please follow the care instructions according to the type of fabric on your upholstery.
To successfully clean fabric, it is important to determine the type of fabric and the recommended cleaning code. The cleaning code for your upholstery can be found on the law tag attached to the furniture. Always pretest an inconspicuous area of the upholstery before spot cleaning.
If you have purchased an after-market Stain Service Plan, please consult the our Service Department or the plan provider for cleaning instructions.
Use a water-based cleaning agent such as a mild detergent or non-solvent upholstery shampoo product only.
Use a mild, water-free, dry cleaning solvent.
Use a water-based cleaning agent or a dry cleaning solvent or foam type cleaner.
Do not use a foam or liquid cleaner of any type. Do not clean with either water or solvent-based cleaner. Use vacuuming or light brushing only.
- Use a professional furniture cleaning service if your upholstery has an overall soiled condition.
Never remove cushion covers for separate dry cleaning or laundering. Do not use bleach, any tumble method cleaning service as this may destroy the backing of the fabric, shrink, or otherwise damage the upholstery fabric.
Leather is the longest lasting and most durable upholstery material you can get, perfect for any room of your home or office. It will withstand the rigors of daily life, including children and pets and still look great. Although the initial investment of quality leather may be more than fabric upholstery, leather is actually one of the best values in the long run.
With proper care, our quality leather can be expected to last for years.
A monthly wiping with a warm and gently damp clean cloth will prevent your body oils and dust from creating a buildup. As easy as it sounds, this maintenance is key to prolonging the life of your leather furniture.
Do not use saddle soaps, oils, abrasive cleaners, soaps, furniture polish, varnish or ammonia based products. The leather has already been permanently preserved in the tanning process and needs no maintenance other than the simple cleaning.
In case of a deep cleaning or conditioning, you should use leather specific cleaners and conditioners. These products are specially designed for this purpose and will not affect the structure of the leather. Recommended 2 to 3 times a year.
Leather cleaners and conditioners are available for purchase in store.
Care Tips for Wood Furnishings
Fine furniture finishes are resistant to minor everyday hazards; however, some precautions are necessary to maintain the beauty of your wood furniture:
Dust with a soft, clean cloth slightly moistened with water, and dry completely with another clean cloth, always rubbing with the grain.
Avoid contact with cigarettes, hot dishes, and harsh solvents such as nail polish, alcohol and moisture.
Use pads beneath accessories and when writing or eating.
Remove spills and smudges immediately.
Do not leave pliable plastic materials on a wood surface; they can damage the finish.
Do not place furniture near heat outlets, windows, or in direct sunlight.
