Ethnicraft Upholstered Furniture Care Instructions
Upholstered items should not be washed. Taking off the cushion covers and washing these in a machine (even at low temperature) will lighten the color and shrink the fabric.
If pilling should occur, don't be alarmed. It's a result of excess fiber coming of the fabric or from external sources. This is not a defect but a characteristic of many upholstered fabrics.
To keep upholstery in optimal condition we recommend the following:
● To remove pilling, we recommend using an antipilling machine.
● Avoid placing item in direct sunlight.
● For dusting or removing crumbs take a clean cloth or soft brush and wipe down upholstery. Do not rub.
● We do not recommend vacuuming. If you do so, use the lowest suction and a soft upholstery attachment.
● Treat spills immediately. Blot up as much of the spill as possible with a clean, dry, white cloth. Do not rub.
● In case of a stain, use a clean, slightly damp white cloth, blotting from the outer edge to the center of the stain.
● Do not use any chemical products on your upholstery.
● If in doubt, always refer to the care label specific to your item.
We advise the following:
● Dust regularly using a soft dry cloth.
● For a more thorough cleaning, use mild soap and warm water. Rinse with clean water and wipe dry.
● Do not use steel wool, sandpaper, mineral acid, bleach or chlorine cleaners on metal surfaces.
● Do not drag the furniture along the floor, as it might damage the protective coating, cause rusting or leave permanent marks on the floor.
● Always lift the furniture when moving them from place to place.
● This product is intended for indoor use only.
● Recommended humidity in the room: between 40% and 60%.
● Ideal room temperature: 21°C during the day, not below 14°C at night.
● To prevent color differences: do not place your furniture in direct sunlight.
● Avoid exposure to extreme conditions: do not place furniture near heating sources or air-conditioners.
● To prevent staining, we recommend that any spills be removed immediately.
● Use placemats and/or coasters to prevent hot pots and pans, or cold glasses and bottles, from leaving marks on the furniture.
● Do not drag the furniture along the floor, always lift the furniture when moving.
● Always ensure water and solutions used to clean the floor do not come in contact with the furniture's base, as it might leave permanent marks.
