Tips for the fabric care

Regular care will extend the service life and life cycle of your furniture. Regular vacuuming of upholstered furniture (incl. chairs, sofas and screens) with a soft brush attachment or similar is usually sufficient for cleaning fabrics.

If liquid is spilled on a fabric, wipe it off as quickly as possible. When removing stains, work from the outer edge towards the centre to prevent the stain spreading.

Only use cleaning agents and cloths designed for fabrics. Prior to use, test the cleaning agent on a hidden area of the upholstery. Avoid wetting the fabric excessively. Only use a reputable brand of cleaner, and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
