A good sofa will offer you years of comfort so it's important to protect it.
Our handy tips will help you to look after your sofa and enjoy it for many years to come!
Maintain your sofa regularly
Everyday soiling occurs from a wide range of things including clothing, shoes, children, pets, body and hair oils, general household dust and airborne contaminants from cooking and even air-conditioning systems.
Fabrics should be vacuumed regularly. Vacuuming regularly using the correct vacuum heads for upholstery and crevices is absolutely the best way to keep your new sofa clean and looking like new. If not vacuumed regularly, everyday soiling will settle between the individual fibres of the fabric and eventually discolour and damage your sofa.
PU should be cleaned on a regular basis using a clean damp cloth moistened with warm water. If not cleaned regularly, everyday soiling will settle and eventually discolour or damage the PU on your product.
Flip your cushions
If your sofa has reversible cushions interchange and flip them over every time you vacuum.
Steam or Dry Clean
Fabric should be steam or dry clean your sofa regularly to maintain the fabric e.g. every 6 or 12 months (check care label on sofa for details). PU should never be steam or dry cleaned.
Keep out of direct sunlight
Almost every fabric will fade or lighten in colour over time. The extent of damage depends on the location, exposure, intensity of light, colour, types of dyes, fabrics and yarns used. To prolong the life of your new sofa keep out of direct sunlight if possible.
