How do I clean my fabric?

Spills and stains happen and dust always accumulates. So how do you protect and clean your new upholstery?

First, regular vacuuming always extends your upholstery's new look. Removing dust and dirt particles frequently before they become embedded into the fabric keeps your decor fresh. If spills do happen, remember to blot (not rub or smear) to prevent the stain's spread. If available, read the fiber content of the material to understand the most suitable cleaning method. Test any cleaning method on a small inconspicuous area of upholstery first.  

Code W refers to fabrics that are man-made such as polyester, nylon, herculon, acetate, and olefin. These fabrics can be cleaned with water-based cleaners.

Code S fabrics include organic fibers such as cotton, linen, wool, silk along with denim, velour, rayon, damask, etc. These fabrics should be cleaned with solvent-based cleaners.

                     One suggested water based cleaner can be found below. Carefully blot the stain with a clean cloth
                     after dissolving
the detergent and vinegar into the warm water:
                                                                           1 teaspoon white vinegar
                                                                           1 teaspoon mild laundry detergent
                                                                           1 quart warm water

                     Allow the material to dry and then vacuum with a soft upholstery brush to give the upholstery its
                     original texture.

For fabrics cleanable with solvent solutions, any upholstery approved stain remover may be used. We offer Tech Stain Remover. As always, be sure and test an inconspicuous area of the upholstery before applying any cleaners.
