Care Guidelines from Coatbridge Nu-Rest Upholstery

We have produced some succinct guidelines that will help keep your re-upholstered furniture looking brand new for years to come. It’s important to be very careful around delicate or old fabric as you do not want to spoil the beautiful finish. Take a note of these rules to ensure your furniture stays perfect for as long as it can:

  • Rotate loose cushions regularly and reverse them to give them equal wear.
  • Avoid any sharp object that may snag the fabric.
  • Avoid pets on re-upholstered furniture due to snagging.
  • Do not machine wash any removable items such as cushion covers.
  • Clean any accidental spillages as soon as possible. However, when performing a spot test, ensure to test it in a small area that is not visible.
  • When unwrapping the furniture it may appear flat and creased, therefore, use the palms of your hands to smooth over the cushions and leather. Air will then circulate the cushions and it will fall into their natural shape.
  • Plump up your cushions regularly.
  • Do not sit on the arms of the sofas or chairs as this will damage the frame of the furniture. Also avoid sitting on the edges of the cushions.
  • Try and not leave newspapers on the furniture as the ink can transfer and stain the furniture.

If you follow the instructions carefully and take great care with your furniture, the flawless look will last a lifetime.

Furniture Placement in the Room

Not only should you follow the guidelines listed above, but it’s also important to take great consideration of where your furniture is placed within your home. Here are some tips for making sure it is ideally situated.

  • If you have wooden floors in the room where your upholstered furniture is then it is best to use protective felt to avoid scratching.
  • If your furniture features a recliner mechanism then it is important to understand that it may be stiff at first but will loosen over time. Make sure you have plenty of room to use this function.
  • Avoid the furniture being in direct sunlight.
  • Avoid placing your furniture near direct heat or air conditioning as extreme temperatures can cause cracking and wearing.

Care of Leather Upholstery

Leather upholstery can give your furniture the most beautiful finish. However, it is also one of the easiest fabrics to damage. Follow our guidelines and take extra care when dealing with leather upholstery.

  • Always follow the manufacturers cleaning instructions and use the products that are recommended. If you are unsure then you can ask your upholsterer the best action to take. Try to regularly wipe with a soft, damp cloth often to ensure your leather furniture looks new.
  • When vacuuming, keep it on a low setting to remove the dust and dirt under the cushions.
  • To avoid any damage or cracking of the leather, keep any furniture at least 50cm away from any heat source.
  • Any liquid spilled on the leather will need to be blotted immediately with a dry cloth until it is dry. Avoid rubbing the area as this could damage the finish and cause discolouration.
  • When dealing with light coloured leather or pale leathers, it is important to be aware that colour from denim jeans or non-colour-fast dark clothing can transfer onto your furniture and cause discolouration which is commonly known as a ‘dye transfer.’ This can especially happen if the clothing is wet or damp.

Leather upholstery is very delicate so you need to be very aware of it, and make sure you are careful and thoughtful when using your piece of furniture.
