Fabric Furniture Care Tips

Here are some tips to keep your customer's furniture looking new. Remember, responding to a spill quickly will reduce the chance of it becoming a permanent stain. 

  • Immediately blot up liquid spills with a dry or lightly dampened (never wet) clean white cloth, sponge or paper towel. Be careful not to damage the surface by rubbing.
  • Gently scrape off any solid residue prior to cleaning. Work from the edge of the spill toward the center to prevent spreading.
  • Keep your fabric upholstered furniture at least two feet from radiators, fireplaces or other heat sources. Prolonged exposure to direct heat sources can damage the fibers in the fabric upholstery.
  • Avoid placing furniture in direct sunlight to help prevent fading.
  • Vacuum regularly.
