Maintain the beauty of your furniture
Consistently vacuuming your upholstered furniture is the absolute most ideal approach tokeep it looking new. In case of a fluid spill, smudge the spill promptly with white cotton or tissue. Soiled areas ought to be vacuumed and afterward cleaned with either a solution of warm water and a mild detergent and a 100% cotton fabric; or with a gentle solvent. Item labels generally contain furniture care and cleaning advice. We always recommend pre-test.
Excessive sun exposure is ensured to wreck furniture. It can make leather and vinyl to fade, dry out or break. Residue, which is similar to a soft abrasive, significantly increases the pace of wear. Normal oils, acids, and dampness created by the skin, just as body cream and sweat, will be absorbed by any cover conceivably recoloring the cover. Body oil and sweat will make vinyl and leather solidify and break. This harm can’t be fixed.
Seat cushions ought to be turned over consistently and moved around so they will wear equitably and keep their shape. Sitting on the same spot will make it wear uniquely in contrast to the rest. Zippers are utilized on cushions for a superior fit, and their essence isn’t a sign that covers ought to be taken out for cleaning. NEVER put cushion covers in the washer. Tighten string buttons by turning clockwise; loosen by turning counterclockwise.
Microfiber / Microsuede Fabric Care
These fabrics are excellent when it comes to stain resistance. To keep it looking its best, we suggest vacuuming regularly to remove dust and dirt. Be sure to clean spills up immediately to prevent liquids from soaking up in the material or cushions. Soak up any liquids with a light blotting technique and try not to rub with pressure. You will also want to occasionally deep clean your sofa with a water-based cleaner, be sure to check the tags for any specific furniture care instructions. We also suggest brushing your sofa, microfiber material can become slightly stiff if the tiny fibers become entangled. Brushing the fabric will liven it back
It is perfectly normal to find different shades and tones, nicks, scratches, and wrinkles on original leather. Have in mind that some marks that can appear on the surface of your leather are healed scratches, barbed wire marks, wrinkles and insect bites and are in no way to be considered a defect. Grain patterns and the color of the leather will vary from hide to hide and also within the same hide. These natural markings will not affect the durability or construction of your piece but is your assurance that you have a true leather hide.
Clean leather furniture every three months, or twice a year. Use a vacuum that has a soft brush attachment to fully clean dust and dirt. Make sure to get in between the grooves so that when the cleaning solution is applied, it will not damage the leather. Create a cleaning solution of half water, half white vinegar. You can also add a few drops of commercial leather cleaner into the mixture. Using a microfiber cloth, dip it into the solution and keep the cloth damp, but not soaked. Wipe down the whole sofa from top to bottom and rinse the cloth in the solution if needed. Then, dry the sofa using a clean towel.
When conditioning the leather, mix one part white vinegar and two parts of either linseed oil or flaxseed oil. If you do not have vinegar, moisturizing soap and water will also work. Use a clean, soft cloth to apply the mixture to the leather in a circular motion and keep it on overnight. After this, buff the leather with a clean rag.
Bonded leather contains leather and a polyurethane layer, making for a very durable material that is easy to care for. Although bonded leather is durable, it can be vulnerable to fading or discoloration if harsh abrasives or alkaline type cleaners are used. Use a soft damp cloth to remove dirt or body oils. For tougher stains use a no alkaline, no detergent soap and a soft cloth. Test cleaning in a hidden area to ensure the furniture care product you use is safe for cleaning your bonded leather surface. Take care to not rub stains and spills, but rather blot them up first.
Recliner mechanisms are typically tested for twenty-five thousand cycles of opening and closing. It is important to give the proper maintenance and care to your recliner for many years of enjoyment.
Always sit down gently on the recliner. When sitting upright in the chair, always engage the reclining mechanism using firm and smooth pressure. When returning the recliner to the upright position, lean forward using your calves to retract the footrest while also pushing the handle forward. Make sure that all four legs of your recliner are level and securely touching the floor. Floors tend to be uneven especially near walls.
Never allow a child to climb onto your lap or feet while in the reclined position. This may bend the mechanism. Do not leave children unsupervised in a recliner. Keep children and their hands away from the interior moving parts. Never lean sideways when you are in the reclined position. The tendency here is to push off the footrest, which could cause damage.
Never stand up without completely closing the mechanism. When moving the chair, never grab, hold or pull by the footrest. Carry the chair from the base.
If the power stops working, check the following:
• Make sure everything is connected.
• Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
• Disconnect and reconnect all connections.
• Make sure no wires are cut or frayed. If they are, discontinue use.
• Reconnect the power cord to the wall outlet.
• If the item still doesn’t work please call a specialist.
Wood furniture can be quite durable and easy to maintain, however it is key to take the proper steps to clean it.
Clean and polish wood according to your cleaning schedule, making it a point to take time cleaning the areas that are used the most and occasionally dusting and polishing every six months. Dust wooden surfaces weekly with a damp cotton cloth. Use a lint-free cloth to polish on a weekly basis. Use coasters to avoid leaving water rings on its surface, and backing on lamps and other accessories to prevent scratches and gouges. Investing in humidifiers or dehumidifiers will help keep wood intact since a constant change in temperature can eventually warp wood. Never use cleaners with bleach and alcohol since these tend to strip wood. Both natural and artificial sunlight can bleach wood’s color. Try to keep furniture away from areas in your home that have an overabundance of light, heating or air conditioner sources. Do not use abrasives or harsh chemicals on wood furniture.
For opened grained woods, use beeswax formulations such as “Howard’s™” For finished surfaces with covered wood grains, use a non-silicone, lightweight wax/polish such as those sold in grocery stores. DO NOT OVER-WAX OR OIL. Modern finishes do not require continual polishing.
For dining tables, place tablecloths and use placemats or felt pads to protect the wood. With care, a dining table will last for many years. The following are some good guidelines to remember.
With extension tables, it is important to ensure that moisture does not remain in the seams of the table top after use or cleaning. Prolonged moisture exposure may destroy the finish and ruin the core of your table. Do not leave unbreathable plastic coverings on wood dining tables for prolonged periods. Plastic will trap moisture (even moisture from humidity) and damage the wood. Never leave standing water, glasses containing chilled liquids or hot containers on the table. This kind of neglect can cause moisture rings, veneer lifting, finish checking, or crazing. Your table is not guaranteed against moisture damage due to neglect.
Replacing/Removing Table Leaves
Inserting and removing the leaves of a table requires two people – one at each end. When inserting a leaf, place the leaf over the table runners so that the pins and holes match up correctly. In addition, use the wood’s grain to properly arrange the leaves. Occasionally, the bottom of the table will have chalk lines and numbers that indicate the correct order. Then from both ends of the table, gently push the table together. If the table is sitting on carpet, lifting up on the table reduces the stress placed on the leg joints, which can be damaged.
Pushing can damage the legs.
Marble is a gentle porous material, and should be cleaned with a gentle touch. Dust the surface once or twice a week using a soft cloth. When washing marble, simply dampen a cloth with warm water and some mild dishwashing liquid if necessary. Dry surface immediately after cleaning. Do not use vinegar, bleach, ammonia or other general-purpose cleaners. Use a separate dampened cloth to remove the soap. Please note to never use dusting sprays or harsh cleaners since these will damage the marble. To keep marble’s luster intact, apply marble polish. Use coasters under glasses, especially if they contain alcohol or citrus juices. Use trivets or mats under hot dishes or cookware. Use placemats under china, ceramics, silver or other objects that may scratch the stone surface.
Vacuum regularly on the lowest-level suction. Avoid fringe trim to prevent accidental fraying. Rotate on a regular basis to evenly distribute wear. Professionally clean once a year to remove any stains.
If a spill occurs, clean immediately. Blot with a clean, absorbent white cloth. Do not rub. Many stains can be gently removed by using club soda and a small amount of carpet cleaning detergents.
First, buy a mattress protector! A good quality, washable mattress protector will keep your mattress dry and free from stains which can invalidate your warranty. We recommend the use of a waterproof mattress protector if your household has children or pets.
Let your mattress air out. New product odor will dissipate with time. To help speed up the process you can air out your mattress prior to putting on your sheets. Provide a proper foundation. A new mattress needs a strong foundation beneath it. Failure to use a proper foundation (box spring) could lead to damage, unsatisfactory performance or reduce the life of your mattress. Rotate your mattress.
Don’t use chemicals to wash your mattress. Chemicals used in spot removers or dry cleaning agents may harm the fabric or materials. To clean a stain, use mild soap and water and apply sparingly. We recommend vacuuming annually to keep your mattress fresh.
Don’t jump on your mattress. Walking on or jumping on your mattress or box spring can damage the construction and can cause injury to yourself or others. Don’t remove the law tag. The information located on this tag will serve as a means of identification should you have a warranty claim. Don’t bend your mattress. To get a mattress through a doorway or around a corner you may flex the mattress but it should never be folded or sharply bent. Carry your mattress upright. It is easier to handle and less likely to be damaged.
