Caring for your Sofa

Do you offer advice on how to clean and care for your fabric upholstery?

Do you offer advice on how to clean and care for your fabric upholstery?

We recommend you carefully vacuum your upholstery at least once a week to keep it in good condition. Accumulated dust and dirt can accelerate the wear of your Sofa and cause colours to dull.

We also recommend that you do not use any soap or detergents on fabrics as upholstery fabric are not 100% colourfast. Excessive wetting could cause shrinkage. Minor soiling can be removed by using proprietary dry foam cleaner available from most furniture stores. Please test before applying to the whole area and follow instructions for use.

It is advisable to have any heavily soiled upholstery cleaned by a Professional Service.

I am thinking about purchasing velvet or chenille upholstery is there anything I should be aware of?

I am thinking about purchasing velvet or chenille upholstery is there anything I should be aware of?

Velvet and Chenille fabrics have a high pile as a result of a double weaving process. Consequently this pile may cause fabrics to shade, show pressure marks or flatten. These qualities are unavoidable and as such should not be regarded as a fault but instead a unique characteristic of these natural fabrics.

I am thinking about purchasing leather upholstery is there anything I should be aware of?

It is important to understand the characteristics of leather when choosing to purchase this time of Sofa or Chair. Leather suites are classic and timeless; the high quality, natural and hard wearing leathers we offer look great and are really easy to care for. It is key to note that leather will move over time, may display traces of the past such as healed scars, insect bites, growth marks and veins. These are all hallmarks of hide and in no way detract from the wearing qualities of leather.

Fabrics & Upholstery

Is there any specific advice for Leather upholstery?

Is there any specific advice for Leather upholstery?

Dust weekly with a clean soft cloth. Clean quarterly by wiping over with a lukewarm mild solution or pure natural soaping agent, using a damp cloth or soft sponge in a circular motion. If you are using a sponge, work the sponge to achieve a lather; it is better to use the suds to clean with.

Any accidental spills should be mopped up immediately with an absorbent tissue or a soft, clean cloth. Always work from the outside of the spill towards the centre, to prevent it spreading. This is important to avoid a stain. Then follow the ‘soaping’ cleaning procedure.

Never use:- polishes, creams, detergents, leather food, solvents, varnishes, white spirit or stain removers. They will damage the leather beyond repair. We advise that in the event of severe soiling, you should consult your original retailer where you purchased your furniture.
