1.Vacuum textiles regularly with an upholstery attachment to remove dust and dirt.
2.Place textiles out of direct sunlight to help prevent fading. Dark colors and cotton fabrics are particularly susceptible to sun.
3.Have upholstered items professionally cleaned annually.
4.Rotate, turn and fluff cushions periodically to promote uniform wear.
5.Maintain a consistent humidity in the space to prevent wood frames and joints from expanding and contracting excessively, which can cause upholstery to stretch and sag.
6.Blot spills immediately with a clean, dry white cloth. Always blot from the outer edges inward to reduce the chance of a stain ring.
7.Blot stains with clear, cool water. Avoid hot water, which can set a stain.
8.Take special care not to rub when cleaning spills and stains on Ultrasuede, as it can ruin the material’s soft nap.
9.If the stain is oil- or water-based, blot the area again with a clean white cloth, repeating as necessary.
10.Remove gum and wax by placing a small plastic bag of ice on it, waiting for the material to harden, and then gently chipping it away. Repeat as necessary and blot any residual stain with a clean, damp white cloth.
11.Brush pile fabrics lightly with a stiff bristle brush to remove minor stains and regain original appearance. Do not rub or use excessive force when brushing.
12.Check the cleaning code and follow the instructions detailed on the label, when washing the removable covings.
