Congratulations on your new fabric furniture! To ensure the comfort, longevity and ascetics of your furniture please follow these guidelines:
- Vacuum weekly (or anytime you vacuum your floors) with the soft brush attachment to remove soil and prevent dirt or grime working in-between fibers, which can increase abrasion and wear. You vacuum your floor often, furniture gets just as much dust as your floors.
- The life of upholstered cushions can be increased through periodic turning. The weekly reversal of loose cushions will allow even distribution of wear over long periods of time. Consumers should also fluff up loose pillows to even out any lumps or settling in head or kidney cushions. Normal use will cause cushions to lose some of their firmness, and should be expected- especially if you have a “favorite” spot.
- When spot cleaning (see below), pretest fabric for discoloration and shrinkage on an inconspicuous part of the furniture. When spot cleaning always, clean the entire seat not just the spill area. Same goes for a back or arm panel- clean the entire area. This insures that you don’t get a brighter, cleaner look than the rest of your sofa. Never remove cushion covers or arm caps for separate cleaning as this may destroy the backing, causing shrinking, and color changes.
- Some fabrics will naturally “pill” or ball up (just like some sweaters) after the first couple uses. Pilling is caused by loose fabric rubbing against each other and working their way out causing a very unsightly look. Although this is very rare, it is considered natural and not covered under the manufactures warranty. Shaving off the furniture can be done in-house and normally takes care of the issue.
