General usage & care of fabric upholstery
To keep your new sofa or chair looking good, we recommend that you vacuum your upholstery at least once a week.
If you allow dust and dirt to accumulate the colours will dull and wear will be accelerated.
Avoid exposing your furniture to prolonged sunlight, as even the strongest colours may fade under such conditions.
Washable cotton loose cover
Loose covers can be washed in temperatures up to 40°C and tumble dried.
We recommend leaving covers slightly damp for ease when refitting.
Although covers can be dry cleaned we advise machine washing, taking care to avoid washing powders or liquids that contain optical brighteners.
Do not use bleach and be aware of the bleaching effect that Benzoyl Peroxide, found in most acne creams, can have.
Wash dark colours separately. Steam iron on reverse if necessary.
Mop any spillages immediately with a clean white cloth.
It is important to completely wash the cover at least twice a year.
Tailored fit chenille loose cover
We recommend brushing lightly or vacuuming each week to keep in good condition.
Spilt liquid should be absorbed immediately with a clean white cloth or tissue.
A slightly damp cloth may be used to revive the texture.
The beauty of a tetrad tailored loose cover is that it gives the appearance of a fixed cover,
but is removable to allow a full cover clean.
We recommend professional dry clean only for these products.
As this cover cannot be removed for cleaning, we advise brushing and vacuuming to remove dust and dirt.
Stained fabric should be dry cleaned, preferably with a powder cleaner which lifts the stain from the
fabric and can be lightly brushed away.
It is always advisable to try out a cleaner first on a hidden area.
Seat cushions and interiors
Fabric seat cushions which are covered on both faces should be turned regularly to maximise the life of the fabric. Fibre, feather and down seat cushions should be shaken and plumped every day.
All scatter cushions should be plumped and turned (where possible) on a regular basis.
Particular care should be taken with chenille scatters to avoid snagging,
for example, when wearing jewellery or high heeled shoes, as they are of a delicate nature.
