Things to Avoid

  1. Keep printed materials such as newspapers from making direct contact with your upholstered furniture. They contain inks that can accumulate over time and will stain. Try not to cover your upholstery with dark colored blankets or sheets. They contain dyes that can rub off over time and stain your furniture. Keep dyes, paints, nail polishes or inks away from the furniture. They can alter the color of the fabrics on your furniture.Regular professional cleaning will remove the harmful soil accumulation from your upholstery and reduce the abrasive effects they have. Thereby increasing the life of your upholstery.
  2. Avoid Direct Sunlight Exposure is guaranteed to destroy furniture. It can cause leather and vinyl to fade, dry out or crack. Dust, which acts as a mild abrasive, greatly increases the rate of wear. Natural oils, acids, and moisture produced by the skin, as well as body lotion and sweat will be absorbed by any cover potentially staining the cover. Body oil and sweat will cause vinyl and leather to harden and crack. This damage cannot be repaired.
