Leather can be cleaned with a soft cloth to dust and if needed, vacuum with a soft brush attachment only.
Liquids should be removed immediately with a damp, lint free cloth. A mild soap can be used on very soiled areas and wiped dry with a wool cloth. If applying water as a mixture, ensure to use cooled boiled or distilled water as tap water can cause markings. During application, do not apply excessive force on the affected area but gently pat down instead.
If you choose to use a leather care product of your choice, please use sparingly and no more than twice a year as overuse can cause damage. Never use detergents, ether, shoe cream, alkaline, strong solution or chemical cleaning products.
Avoid exposure to direct sunlight as it can dry out the leather. Be weary of dye transfer onto the surface while wearing dark wash clothing or jeans. Be cautious of sharp objects (ie. Bracelets, rings, wristwatches, buckles, belts, zips and rivets) as well as the claws and beaks of pets. It is preferable to maintain a humidity level of 45 to 55 percent with temperature levels between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius to avoid drying out the leather or causing the foam to alter.
Wool can be maintained with a vacuum at half-power and a soft brush attachment. Though it is water-repellent, water should nonetheless be removed without delay. Take care to never saturate the wool. Most spots can be removed with a cloth, warm water with mild soap if necessary. The fibers will slightly rise when moist and the area will appear as a darker stain. It is possible to prevent discoloration by spraying water lightly over the entire piece and continued use at normal humidity levels will allow the fibers to rise and potential stains to be less visible.
Velour should be brushed with a soft brush and/or vacuumed with the nozzle but always in the direction of the nap.To treat pressure marks, place a damp cloth on the area or spray with clean water lightly until the surface is moist but not wet. When moist, brush with a soft brush for the nap to rise again to its original state and let it dry over night and only where needed, it can be dried with a hair dryer from different directions. In order to avoid shading, treat the entire surface accordingly.
Velvet can maintain its velvet aspect by gently brushing the surface with a dry sponge in circular motions to keep the fibrous structure open. For any stubborn fibers, a vacuum at reduced power with a soft brush attachment can be used.
Cotton can be maintained with a vacuum at half-power and a soft brush attachment. It is more high-maintenance as liquids penetrate easily and is also vulnerable to dirt. Regular maintenance and cleaning removes dirt before it settles into the fabric damaging the fibers. Most spots can be removed with a cloth, warm water and mild soap if necessary.
Please follow the following to prevent stain formation or in case of spills: First, scrape off any liquids or hardened residues with a spoon or a scoop. Any loose particles must be vacuum cleaned before further cleaning. Liquids must be absorbed with an absorbent napkin or cloth. Remove non-greasy stains by carefully dabbing with a lint-free cloth or sponge wrung out in warm water. Edge marks can be avoided by dabbing gently in circular motions towards the centre of the stain.Make sure to dry the fabric fully before use. It may also be necessary to use a hairdryer to avoid leaving edge marks (this applies especially to microfiber textiles).
For all fabrics, here are a few reminders:
Never use any undiluted cleaning agents, bleaching agents, ammonia or soap. Never place furniture in direct sunlight as this can cause discoloration. Avoid strong rubbing during application as it can cause friction marks.Be weary of dye transfer onto the surface while wearing dark wash clothing or jeans.
