Upholstery fabrics have notable resistance and durability thanks to their composition and high-quality finishes. However, to ensure their optimal conservation, it is essential to understand how to properly care for them.
There are several key aspects that contribute to keeping furniture fabrics in excellent condition:
- Avoid rubbing fabrics in case of liquid or dirt spills to prevent deeper penetration. Instead, it is recommended to dab clean using a dry cloth. In cases of persistent stains, a mixture of water and mild soap can be used, applying it with a sponge gently and lightly.
- Regular cleaning of textile products is essential to remove stains and accumulated dust, preventing the fabric from wearing out prematurely. A vacuum cleaner with a soft brush nozzle is the ideal tool for this task. This is especially important for velvety fabrics.
- For fabrics used indoors, it is crucial to avoid direct exposure to sunlight, as this can cause faster wear, fading and loss of its natural shine.
- Moisture and liquid spills can encourage mold growth, which negatively affects the quality of the fabric. Therefore, it is essential to keep fabrics in a dry, well-ventilated space to ensure that they remain fresh and free of moisture.
Some substances such as markers, acetone, nail polish and the like can cause discoloration and changes in the tone of the fabric if spilled on it. To prevent this, it is important to use caution when using products containing these substances near upholstered furniture.
