CLEANING

Upholstery:

• For regular cleaning, lightly brush or vacuum both vertical and horizontal surfaces
to prevent dust and soil build-up.
• For spills, stains, or heavy soil build-ups:
•Clean immediately. Remove as much of the stain or staining agent from the
surface. Vacuum the surface, gently brush or scrape off the material, and/or
soak up any excess liquid from a spill. Do not dry completely as this will
cause the stain to set, making clean up more difficult.
• Water-based Cleaning Agents (Colorfastness code W or W-S only)
If your fabric cleaning code is W or W-S (see table below.) Works best on
water-based stains (coffee, soft drinks, juice):
•Use only water-based cleaning agents or foam.
•Pretest a small, inconspicuous area before proceeding.
•Mix 2 tablespoons ammonia or ammoniated detergent to a quart of
water.
•Wipe the stain gently with a cloth dampened with this solution.
•Continue turning the cloth so you are always using a clean potion to
remove the stain.
•Work from the outside of the stain toward the center, using quick,
light strokes. Do not over saturate the fabric.
•If you use a water-based cleaning solution such as Woolite always
follow the directions on the package.
•Allow the area to dry thoroughly and vacuum.
•Use a professional furniture cleaning service when an overall soiled
condition has been reached.
• Pure Water-Free Solvents(Colorfastness code S or W-S only)
•If your fabric cleaning code is S or W-S (see table below).Works best on
oil-based stains or spills (lipstick, oil, pen ink):
•Use a dry-cleaning solution or spot remover. Some cleaning
products may cause discoloration and should be tested in an
inconspicuous location prior to use on the chair.
•Apply the solution to the soiled area using a damp cloth or soft
bristle brush.
•Work from the outside of the stain toward the center, using quick,
light strokes. Do not over saturate the fabric.
•Blot the area with a clean cloth to absorb the cleaning solution and
soil.
•Clean the area with clean water and a damp cloth or sponge.
•Allow the area to dry thoroughly and vacuum.
•If the stain persists, repeat the above process. It is better to use
several light applications than one heavy one.
•Use a professional furniture cleaning service when an overall soiled
condition has been reached.
