GENERAL CARE – DESIGNER FURNITURE FABRIC
- Professional cleaning is recommended every 12 months.
- Maintain at least 30 cm gap between furniture and heating sources. Prolonged exposure to heat can cause fabric to deteriorate.
- Avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight. All materials fade over time if placed in direct sunlight.
- Do not allow pets onto products.
- Never use harsh chemicals on or near your lounge. This includes nail polish remover, bleach, glue, household cleaners and paint thinners.
- Rather than have a ‘favourite seat’, use your whole suite equally. This will keep the appearance of your lounge look equal all over and aging as one.
- Do not pull loose threads, this could create a hole. Trim them off neatly with sharp scissors.
- All fabrics require regular care and maintenance and cleaning: vacuum with an upholstery attachment as dust can cause premature wear and discolouration. Treat spills and marks immediately.
Your furniture is not designed to be lifted or moved by pulling on sofa and armchairs arms or upholstery. Damage caused to fabric, stitching or zips as a result of external force are not covered under furniture warranty.
