Cleaning upholstery fabrics
To uphold the fresh look of new furniture, it’s necessary to regularly clean and protect the fabric. Preventive impregnation of textiles makes cleaning easier and also gives you extra time to remove any spilled goods or liquids.
- To remove dust, crumbs and dirt from your textile upholstery you can use the furniture attachment of your vacuum cleaner. We recommend doing this at least once a week. Make sure you don’t exceed 500 Watts and that the furniture attachment has a nice soft brush.
- Or: you can use the LCK® cleaning glove. Depending on your fabric* you can use a few drops of destilled water. *)Please check whether your fabric can be cleaned using water on our website.
- Do not use cleaners that contain bleach or solvents. These are not suitable for upholstery fabrics.
- Do not sit on furniture with clothing that may bleed colourdye into the fabric such as jeans.
- Sharp objects on clothes such as zippers, buttons and buckles can cause irreversible camage.
Do remember that even with the best possible protection an accident can still occur!
- In case of stains first of all: Don’t panic!
- Absorb any spilled liquids by carefully dabbing paper towels on the fabric. Remove solids from the furniture using a spoon.
- Do not put any pressure on the fabric.
- Always treat stains from outside in.
- Treat an entire section from seam to seam. Chances are that the stain remains visible if you only work on one spot.
- After cleaning your fabric with a cleaner (such as the Puratex® strong cleaner) make sure you protect the fabric again using an impregnator.
