Here are a few tips from our product care on how to look after and maintain your chosen chairs:-
Wipe down the chair every two weeks with a damp, clean cloth. This will remove surface grime that gets into the bonded leather’s pores.
Dust the crevices and seems of the bonded leather every two weeks as well. You may either use a vacuum or dry cloth for this task.
Clean spills whenever they occur by first blotting the food or liquid and then gently wiping it with a damp cloth. Do not use soap or abrasive cleaners as this may dry your leather. If a spill stains use a specially formulated leather cleaner
Apply a leather conditioner twice a year. Follow the directions on the package as each brand differs. This will help keep the bonded leather malleable and help keep it attached to its backing.
LEATHER MATCH AND LEATHER
Wipe the leather furniture down regularly with a clean, dry cloth. The basic care routine for leather upholstery is simply wiping the furniture down with a dry cotton cloth. This will remove dust from the leather and keep it looking its best.
Vacuum dust and debris from the furniture’s crevices. Just as with any other piece of upholstered furniture, the best way to remove the dust and debris that gradually builds up in crevices and under cushions is by using your vacuum’s hose attachment. No special precautions are necessary when vacuuming leather furniture
Apply a leather conditioner regularly. The most notable difference between caring for leather versus fabric upholstery is the need to condition the leather. Leather conditioners are products that have a creamy consistency and are designed to be buffed into the leather. Conditioning the leather regularly keeps it from drying out and developing cracks. (Leather conditioner can be purchased from many furniture stores)
Clean spills immediately with a dry cloth. When anything is spilled onto the leather upholstery, wipe it away as soon as possible. Use a dry cloth or sponge to absorb as much of the spilled liquid as possible, only resorting to a moistened cloth if necessary. Use as little water as possible to clean the spill, and wipe the area dry afterwards.
Avoid soaking the leather in water or soap. Unlike fabric upholsteries, leather should never be cleaned by prolonged soaking in soap or water. Doing this can damage the leather even more than the initial stain you are trying to remove.
HERRINGBONE & TWEED
With fine weaves, distinctive materials and a reputation of high performance, herringbone and tweed fabrics are specially crafted for superior quality and style. Here are a few tips on how to maintain the look and comfort of the material on your chosen chairs.
Attend to the stain immediately. The sooner you clean it, the more likely it is that the stain will be removed.
Blot the stain if it is fresh. Use a gentle touch and a towel. Do not rub the fabric. It is a good idea to apply a fabric protector to tweed furniture as soon as you get it, and occasionally afterward. Check first to see if it has already been applied. If you have applied this in the past, a liquid stain should bead up and be fairly easy to remove by blotting. The stain protector does not make it waterproof
Evaluate the fabric. If it is an expensive article, then choose to dry clean tweed. Choose a dry cleaner you trust. Harsh chemicals like carbon tetrachloride can damage and shrink tweed.
Apply either a water based method or a solvent to the stain. A commonly used stain removal adage is “like dissolves like.” This means that the water in a water and detergent solution dissolves water-based stains like soup or juice, and detergents that are petroleum-based can easily dissolve greasy or oil-based stains.
Place a pad under the other side of the fabric to capture moisture and dirt that run off during the cleansing process
Mix a small amount of mild laundry detergent with warm water. Apply this mixture to the stain by gently rubbing it with a towel or sponge. Allow it to sit for a few minutes. For removable tweed seating, mix 2 cups of detergent with warm water in a large bucket or trough and soak before washing in the clothes washer, this should loosen dirt from the fibres.
Rinse with warm water. Repeat, if necessary.
Allow to dry,
Here are a few tips on how to maintain the look and comfort on the material of your chosen chairs.
All solid particles from the spill must be removed. It’s always best to vacuum the area first to not only remove the spill and other dirt that has collected, but because picking the solid remnants of the spill with your fingers could spread the stain. Knowing what spilled is important in knowing how to clean it. If food with oil or grease is spilled, clean it with a cold Cloth and dish soap.
The dish soap will help cut the oil and grease and leave the linen looking clean. If it’s a spill from anything else, apply an upholstery cleaner to the stain. (upholstery cleaners can be purchased at most superstores). Leave the cleaner on for 30 minutes, then clean it up with a damp washcloth.
If there is no stain and you just want to keep your linen chairs looking great, wash the chairs once a month with an upholstery cleaner. It will extend the lifespan of the fabric and it will be gentle enough for the linen but tough enough for the dirt.
Chenille chairs need gentle treatment to maintain their luxurious appearance.
Clean your chenille chairs by vacuuming them with the upholstery brush attachment. Rubbing the stain with soap and water on a sponge will only work the dirt deeper into the twisted fibres.
If the spill is wet, then absorb as much of the liquid as possible with a clean towel. If a stain remains after blotting, consult a professional dry cleaner for advice on removing that particular liquid.
Dry cleaning solutions do remove some stains, however, refer to the care label on your chair since mills use their own chemical formulas when dyeing the fabric.
One of the handiest items you should have around the house to reinvigorate your suede furnishings is a suede brush. A suede brush is used to return the nap to an area of suede that has lost its original finish. Use this specially designed brush both before and after treating stains.
You’ll find that your treatment method for removing stains will vary depending on what kind of stain or mark you are dealing with. Regardless of whatever kind of stain you are fighting, you will want to test a small, less visible portion of the chair to make sure that no adverse effects occur (loss of colour, acid wear)
For dry scuff marks or similar problems, gently rubbing the area with a pencil eraser often does the trick.
Here are a few tips on how to maintain the look and comfort on the material of your chosen chairs
Once the stain has been eradicated, use a silicone-based solution designed to waterproof suede. Always allow the suede to air dry after cleaning. If the nap is still a bit off, try using a suede brush, emery board or textured sponge. If your attempts at cleaning that stain have made it worse or have failed to completely remove the stain, call a professional cleaner.
