Protection and care of leather upholstered furniture

• Natural and faux leather have a protective layer, but the use of inappropriate cleaning agents may cause damage to the cover. Therefore, under the threat of losing the warranty, the leathers have to be protected against solutions such as alkaline, acidic, etc. Instead, use solutions recommended by: (name of a company).

• The frequency of cleaning the leather depends on the intensity of use of the furniture. Fresh contaminations can be removed immediately using a clean, dry cloth or tissue. If these methods prove ineffective, one should use solutions recommended by (name of a company).

Protection and care of fabrics in upholstered furniture:

• It should be regularly cleaned, vacuumed, and in the case of fabrics with hair, the furniture cover should be brushed;

• Colourants used to dye fabrics are sensitive to sunlight; therefore, you should avoid exposing the furniture to direct sunlight through windows without curtains;

• In the case when on the surface of the fabrics a liquid is spilled, e. g. coffee, first the stain must be drained using a paper napkin or cleaned using easily absorbing cotton cloth, and then, the contamination must be removed, e. g. coffee grounds, and only then the stain can be removed;

• In the course of removing the stain with perchloroethylene-based stain removers and aqueous detergents, one should avoid soaking the fabrics too much;

• Before using a product for cleaning upholstery, make sure to check its effect on not exposed parts of the furniture, in order to avoid damaging the fabric, e. g. discolouration due to too aggressive effects of the solution;

• Pets may significantly damage the furniture cover, so appropriate bedspreads must be used; however, they should be arranged in a way that prevents contact of the fabrics hair with the bedspread hair; and

• Recommended stain removers and products for cleaning upholstery are avail­able commercially.

• Description of raw materials and components used:

• Bearing structure,

• Skeleton internal construction of the furniture is built with wooden elements and plywood. The seat is reinforced with sinusoidal springs and upholstery belts and

• In some furniture with a reclining function, metal frames equipped with elastic skirts and mattresses are applied.

Filling:

• Comfort of furniture is achieved through the use of appropriately selected fill­ings from highly flexible polyurethane foams. They provide the right softness at the key points of furniture—on the backrests, seat cushions, armrests. To increase the durability of the seat, special bonnell-type springs have been used. Properly filled cushions ensure comfort for the furniture users and ensure a high level of ergonomics. To achieve the effect of fluffiness, in selected series of upholstered furniture granulated, eco-friendly silicone fibres have been used;

• Leather is a natural material and each hide of leather is different; therefore, the differences in colour and texture are a common and natural phenomenon; and

• Upholstery fabrics meet the requirements in terms of durability, resistance to abrasion and contamination, elasticity and shrinkage.
