Taking proper care of your new upholstered furniture will help keep it looking beautiful for many years. Remember, the same amount of dust that builds up on your end tables, coffee table and television also builds up on your upholstery; it's just not as noticeable on fabric. To preserve that showroom look, vacuum your upholstered furniture regularly using the wand attachment.
If possible, flip and rotate your cushions once a month. This will ensure even fabric fading and foam core wear.
If there are zippers on the backs or arms of your furniture, don't hesitate to unzip them, reach inside and fluff the stuffing. It'll keep your furniture looking new longer.
Have your upholstered furniture cleaned by a trained, insured professional. It's a small investment that will extend the beauty and life of your furniture.
Make sure to clean up spills immediately before they soak in. If you haven't purchased your new furniture yet, we highly recommend our Platinum Protection Plan. It protects against food, beverage, gum, ink, nail polish, bleach, glue, grass, mud, grease stains and more for 5 full years!
Here are some upholstery cleaning codes and what they mean to you:
W: Spot clean with water-based upholstery shampoo or foam upholstery cleaner. Avoid soaking the fabric. Use a professional cleaner for overall cleaning
S: Use a water-free upholstery cleaning agent for occasional spot cleaning. Don't use water—it may cause shrinking, bleeding or water spots.
WS: Use either water-based or solvent-based upholstery cleaners to spot clean.
X: Don't use any cleaning chemicals. Instead, use a nonmetallic brush to loosen soil from the fabric. This cleaning code is most commonly found on silk- and satin-upholstered products.
