Fabric Care

We recommend a simple vacuum of your fabric sofa every week and loose seat and back cushions should be rotated and plumped regularly to extend the life for the fabric and the foam. Always lift your sofas, never drag them as you may break or scratch the legs. You may choose to remove the plastic corner protectors with extreme care, using pliers to remove staples. Do not sit on the arms or back of your sofa. We recommend that your sofa/chair is cleaned by a qualified upholstery cleaning company once a year. It is common for seat foams to soften over time.

Avoid direct heat such as sunlight, fires or air-conditioners to prevent fading, moisture build up and/or scorching. Sharp objects can cause snagging, tearing or pulling of the fabric. Cut any loose threads off the sofa, do not pull them. Minor spills should be quickly blotted with an absorbent paper towel or clean cloth to avoid staining. Avoid using aggressive household cleaners. For tough stains use the services of a professional cleaning company as recommended by our fabric protection specialists. Dye transfer between product/material can occur and should be cleaned immediately with the recommended cleaning product.

Care instructions for sofabeds
Before attempting to open your sofa bed for the first time, ensure the straps holding the mechanisms in place are undone and removed. Do not move the sofa with the bed open as this will cause damage to the sofas legs and can pull the mechanism out of alignment. Do not close the bed with any sheets, blankets, pillow or other bed linen inside. When the bed is open the mechanism is not designed for the sofa to be a seat. Excessive weight forward of the front bar may result in damage to the mechanism. Always follow the instructions carefully when opening and closing the bed.

Leather Care

Leather is a natural material which will last a long time, but only if maintained correctly. Leather should be cleaned and conditioned regularly to avoid drying out and cracking of the leather. To minimise fading, avoid exposing your furniture to direct sunlight or heat. Dusting and vacuum your furniture weekly. Wipe off any spills immediately with a soft damp cloth. Dye transfer between product/material can occur and should be cleaned immediately with the recommended cleaning product. Ink and pen marks must be cleaned immediately with an ink removing cleaner specifically made for leather. It is common for leather to stretch with use and for seat foams to soften over time.

Clean and protect the leather with manufacturer approved care products following the instructions carefully. Different types of leather and finishes require different treatments. Ensure you purchase care products to suit the leather type you have chosen.
