Furniture care instructions
General Furniture And Fabric Care
- Rotate cushions and pillows to redistribute wear and extend the life of the interior foam material, which can lose between 20-30% of its density within the first 3 months of use.
- Vacuum furniture with the crevice tool to keep it clean.
- Avoid sitting on the arms of sofas and chairs because the excess pressure may cause damage.
- Keep your furniture away from direct sunlight to prevent fading.
- Don't leave newspapers, magazines or other printed materials on furniture because certain inks and pigments may stain the fabric.
- Avoid using scented fabric fresheners, neutralizers or fabric protectors on your furniture.
- Cover or move furniture when working with household products to reduce the risk of damage.
- Blot spills with a clean, absorbent cloth or paper towel.
- Remove any excess material from solid spills before treating the stain.
- Avoid rubbing a spill or using a brush, harsh solvents like bleach, detergents or rug cleaners, which all can damage the fabric.
- Brush or vacuum slipcovers regularly.
- Remember that some stubborn stains may need more than one cleaning.
- For more information about cleaning your furniture, consult a sales associate or professional cleaner.
- Dust regularly with a dry cloth and vacuum as needed. Avoid exposure to sunlight and heat, which may cause the leather to fade or lose its soft, supple feel.
- Blot liquid spills immediately with a clean, absorbent cloth or sponge. If necessary, use clear, lukewarm distilled water.
- Wipe with a clean towel and air dry. If water is used, clean the entire area where the spill occurred. For stubborn stains, wash with a mild solution of non-perfumed, un-dyed soap and lukewarm distilled water; then rinse, wipe and air dry.
- Butter, oil or grease spills should be wiped with a clean, dry cloth.
- Do not use saddle soaps, oils, abrasive cleaners, perfumed or dyed soaps, furniture polish, varnish, detergents, ammonia or harsh commercial cleaners, as they can damage and streak the leather.
- For suede, nubuck and split leather, avoid exposure to liquid spills because these types of leather cannot be washed or cleaned as easily as smooth leathers. Do not use liquid cleaners.
- If you have any questions about cleaning your leather upholstery, please contact your sales associate or a professional upholstery cleaner.
Mattress Care Tips
- Keep your mattress dry to avoid water damage. Consider a mattress pad for protection. Remember that manufacturer's warranties become invalid for stained or soiled bedding.
- Avoid lifting the mattress by its handles; it may tear the fabric. The handles should only be used to help position it.
- Don't stand or jump on your mattress to avoid damaging its inner springs.
- Choose the correct bed frame for your mattress. For example, a queen size mattress fits a queen size frame.
- Never smoke in bed. Mattresses may be made from flame-resistant materials, but this doesn't mean they're fireproof.
- Don't remove the label from your mattress because it includes important warranty information.
Refer to your manufacturer's warranty for more information about caring for your mattress.
