Maintenance Tips Fabric

Good maintenance will expand the lifespan of your furniture. If you do correct maintenance and follow the tips below, you will be able to enjoy your purchase for longer.

  • Over time, every fabric will display more or less discolouration because of the influence of light. That is why you should always keep your furniture out of direct sunlight;
  • Furniture fabrics are vulnerable to sharp buckles, your pets’ nails, toys and rings, etc. All of these things can cause lasting damage to the fabric. Stiff kinds of denim and the rivets in them will also speed up the wear process;
  • It’s important to vacuum your furniture frequently. Make sure you use the right nozzle (soft brush that is only used for this purpose) and beware that it doesn’t have any protrusions that can get caught in the fabric. Move the nozzle over the furniture carefully and with low suction (!), and in case of fabrics with a pile always in the direction of the nap. This way you will remove dust particles such as sand, which cause wear and pilling.

Maintenance Tips Leather

  • Regularly wipe the furniture with a moist, clean cloth, or a clean chamois. Use chalk-free water, since tap water can cause circles, and certainly do not use so-called wonder wipes;
  • Avoid direct sunlight, because this will discolour and dry the leather;
  • In case of spills, clean as much as possible right away. Because of the natural properties of the leather, stains usually become less visible over time;
  • Make sure the room has the right humidity (40-60%). If the air is too dry the leather will dry, which will cause tears/fracture lines;
  • Do not keep rubbing in one place with too much force, because the leather in this spot can become shiny or stretched.
