We recommend that you vacuum your upholstery regularly and remove stains by means of a damp cloth (not over-wet) and soapy water or mild detergent if necessary, following closely the manufacturer’s instructions. For more stubborn stains please consult a professional cleaning company. All stains on Aquaclean fabrics can be fully cleaned using just water, with only a dab of soap needed on the toughest stains only.
All pile fabrics including chenilles are subject to a certain degree of shading or pile crush with frequent use. This is not a fabric fault, nor will it detract from the wearing properties of the material. The effect of pile crush can be minimised by regular brushing with a soft brush and occasional steaming where the pile is showing signs of wear.
In order to create the extra softness inherent in ‘chaise’-type seatwraps it is important to remember that the upholstery is somewhat looser than in conventional seating, particularly as it cannot be pulled tightly from side to side. This may result in a little ‘bagginess’ or ‘wrinkliness’ appearing in certain fabrics which can usually be smoothed out by hand after use. It is also worth noting that with this type of upholstery horizontal seams in seating and joins in back cushions may become misaligned in use. When this happens it is advisable to re-align the affected areas by hand after use.
Armcaps are available with most items to prevent excessive wear on the vulnerable arm sections. Please also remember that direct sunlight may fade certain colours. Avoid sharp objects, including pets’ claws, from damaging your upholstery.
Showwood areas should be wiped daily with a soft dry duster. To remove grease marks use a diluted solution of warm water and vinegar and buff with a soft duster. Do not use spray furniture polish.
