Care and cleaning is essential to increasing the life span of your new furniture. If any warranty issues arise, it’s important that the piece was in otherwise great condition prior to the issue. Keep your furniture appealing and clean with the tips below.
For all fabrics:
- Always try to use a protective cover when eating or writing while on the furniture, or when children or pets are playing.
- We recommend having your furniture professionally cleaned every 6-8 months.
- Keep furniture out of direct sunlight, as fabric can fade over time.
- Do not use harsh cleaners or chemicals to clean. Use only recommended products for that specific fabric.
- Periodically dust your furniture with a lint roller, feather duster, or vacuum cleaner.
- Make sure you immediately dab the spot with a paper towel after the incident. By doing this, you are absorbing the most from a stain and leaving less to clean up later.
- Take a clean sponge or soft cloth and dip into water. Wring out any extra water, as you only want a damp cloth or sponge. Light wipe or dab the stain.
- Make a light soapy water mixture and using the sponge or cloth again, dab or lightly rub the stain. Repeat until the stain lifts.
- If stain persists, use a leather cleaning product. These can be found at home improvement stores. We also recommend using a leather condition to keep your leatherette from cracking and drying.
- Do not leave newspapers, magazines or receipts on your leather, as the ink can transfer to the leather and stain.
Woven Polyester & Cotton-Polyester:
- Routinely remove lint and hair from the upholstery. Vacuum often and remember to get between the cushions!
- Spot-clean with damp sponge or cloth. Blot to remove any excess water.
- Avoid excessive cleaning as fibers can wear down.
- Professional cleaners should be called for any serious stains.
- Use paper towels to absorb any liquid from the stain as soon as possible.
- Create a soapy water mixture and agitate to create an abundance of suds.
- Using a clean sponge or cloth, dip into the suds only and dab the stains lightly.
- Blot with a dry towel or sponge to absorb any remaining suds and let air dry.
- Brush over the velvet to restore the nap of the fabric.
- You can use a steamer to revive the luster and shine of the velvet.
- Consider hiring a professional cleaner to maintain the velvet, especially if it’s badly stained.
- Polish with a soft cloth weekly to maintain luster.
- Avoid putting wood near air conditioning or heating units, as those can dry the wood out.
- If placing on a wood, tile, or linoleum floor, use felt pads under the wood legs to prevent scratching.
- Scratches on the wood can generally be fixed by purchasing touch-up crayons or markers at home improvement stores.
- For stains, remove any liquid with paper towels as soon as possible. Rub with a clean cloth to polish over.
- For serious stains or water marks, combine 1 Tablespoon of vinegar with 1 quart of water. Take a clean cloth and gently rub the wood in the same direction as the grain.
- For any serious damage, contact a professional who works with wood restoration.
- Dust regularly with a dry cloth.
- Be careful around humidity, especially near saltwater, as some metals can rust.
- Never use harsh chemicals to clean. If there are stains or residue on the metal, use a light soapy mixture and rub with a clean cloth or sponge. Dry the metal completely with a clean towel.
