General Fabric Upholstery Care
- Because dust and dirt cause upholstery to wear faster, we recommend vacuuming regularly with an upholstery attachment.
- Flip, rotate and fluff removable cushions regularly to ensure even wear and increase longevity.
- Feather and down cushions have excellent recovery, but much like down comforters or pillows, need to be fluffed more frequently to restore their loft.
- Tight, attached seat and back cushions will stretch and wrinkle with use. You can easily restore their appearance by smoothing the surface and tucking excess upholstery into the sides of the seat or back.
- To minimize fading, we recommend placing your upholstered pieces where they won't be exposed to direct sunlight.
- An annual professional cleaning will keep your upholstery looking its best.
Fabric Spot Cleaning
- For persistent stains and overall cleaning, contact an in-home professional upholstery cleaning company.
- Do not dry clean or machine wash cushion casings as it may damage the fabric, backing or stitching.
- You'll get the best results if you treat stains immediately. Blot up as much of the spill as possible with a clean, dry, white cloth. Don't rub.
- Apply a small amount of cleaner to the stain. Avoid oversaturation which can damage the fabric backing or upholstery foam.
- Blot the stain with a clean, dry, white cloth, working from the outer edge to the center of the stain.
- Continue to apply cleaner sparingly and blot until the stain no longer transfers onto the cloth. This may take several attempts.
- When you have removed as much of the stain as possible, blot any remaining moisture from the fabric.
