How to Care for Upholstery

Cleaning
Our upholstery is finished to a very high standard and most cushion covers are zipped so that they can be removed for cleaning. Some fabrics can be washed and some are 'dry clean only'.
 
If the covers are washable please use a gentle wash cycle and washing powder or liquid that does not contain optical brighteners. Covers from the same suite should all be washed at the same time in case any minor colour change occurs.
 
If your covers are labelled 'dry clean only' please take them to a specialist dry cleaner for the best results.
 
Do not assume that if a 'dry clean only' label is not present that this means that the covers can be washed by you at home. Contact our staff for advice on the cleaning of your covers.
Some suites may have loose cushion covers and other parts have fixed upholstery. These can be cleaned in situ, as with any fixed upholstery, by a specialist service.

Cushions
Each suite of furniture is suppled with the cushion filling that, in our judgment, suits it best. If you would like a different filling we can usually supply an alternative. We use feather, fibre, sprinkle, (a feather/fibre mix) and foam fillings in our cushions. Feather and sprinkle cushions need to be plumped up regularly to keep them soft and prolong their life. All cushions should be turned regularly if possible to allow for equal wear and consistant fading.
 
Protect your furniture to prolong its life
All fabrics will fade in bright sunlight so install blinds to help protect your cushions from piercing rays. Contact our sales staff on 01886 884665 for advice, or more details about suitable blinds.
 
Fire retardancy
All fillings meet fire retardancy regulations. If you choose a fabric that is not fire retardant we will supply barrier lined interiors.
 
Our recovering service
We can easily re-cover any furniture that was originally purchased from us. If you would like your cushions to be recovered please contact our sales team for a quotation on 01886 884665.
