To properly look after the product, it is best to follow a number of simple and useful indications which will help keep it in excellent condition.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE:
Silver leaf Steel Metals: We advise using a soft damp cloth and then drying.
Chrome Mirrors Lacquer: Avoid using products containing solvents, alcohol, thinners, acetone or abrasive products. We advise using a soft damp cloth and then drying.
Wood: Avoid using products containing solvents, alcohol, thinners, acetone or abrasive products. We advise using a soft damp cloth and then drying, following the direction of the wood grains.
Marble: Treated with anti-stain protection. To avoid halo, dry immediately any liquid, that can penetrate and damage the top. Avoid using products containing solvents, alcohol, thinners, acetone or abrasive products, use only a soft damp cloth and then drying
Fabrics: Dry clean.
Leather: We advise using a soft damp cloth and then drying.
Vinyl: Requires periodic cleaning to maintain its appearance and prevent the build-up of dirt and contaminants that may permanently stain and reduce the life of the vinyl if not removed.
The frequency of cleaning depends upon the amount of use and environmental conditions to which the vinyl is subjected. Vinyl upholstery will absorb stains and dyes from fabrics that “crock” or bleed, for example blue denim or bright prints. A vinyl protective finish, sold in furniture or automotive stores, may help to protect the upholstery by resisting or retarding the absorption of these stains. Some household cleaners and solvents remove plasticizers from vinyl making it brittle and should not be used.
The procedures used for cleaning are dependent upon the end use circumstances.
FOR NORMAL CLEANING
In general, most stains can be easily cleaned using warm, soapy water and clear water rinses. Moderate scrubbing with a medium bristle brush will help loosen soiling
materials from the depressions of embossed surfaces.
Detergents should never be used on a regular basis for normal cleaning. Recommended repeated rinsing with clear water after any cleaning procedure. Full strength rubbing alcohol or mineral spirits may be tried cautiously as a last resort on very stubborn stains, if the above suggestions do not work. Indiscriminate use of any
solvent, or solvent containing cleaner, can severely damage or discolour vinyls.
BLEACH AND ANTISEPTIC SURFACE TREATMENT
(FOR PRODUCTS SPECIFIED AS BLEACH CLEANABLE)
Bleach can be diluted up to a 9:1 ratio (10%). Liberally apply diluted disinfectant using a sponge. Rinse with cold water several times. Wipe dry. Repeat if necessary.
Please follow the guidelines on the bleach label for antiseptic or antimicrobial purposes.
Unspecified cleaners should not be used. Powdered abrasives, cleaners containing abrasives, steel wool, and industrial strength cleaners are not recommended. Use of citrus-based cleaners is not recommended. Any lacquer solvent will cause immediate irreparable damage to the vinyl. Wax should never be used on any vinyl upholstery, as it will cause premature embrittlement and crocking. If flammable solvents such as alcohol, turpentine or mineral spirits are used for cleaning, then only small quantities should be employed in a well ventilated area. Exercise proper care by advising personnel in the area and keep away from any ignition source. Always wear protective gloves.
Certain stains may become permanently set unless they are removed immediately. The procedure for the removal of the more severe staining agents are outlined below.
BALLPOINT PEN, PERMANENT MARKER
Ink spots will stain vinyl permanently. Immediate wiping with rubbing alcohol in a well ventilated area will remove much of the stain.
OIL BASED PAINT
The use of turpentine in a well ventilated area will remove any fresh paint. Dried paint must be moistened carefully with a semi-solid gel-type stripper so that the softened paint can be gently scraped away. Rinse with soap and water
Direct contact with paint strippers will remove the print pattern from vinyl. Paint strippers are flammable and toxic. Take care to avoid skin contact by wearing protection.
Fresh paint can be wiped off with a damp cloth. Hot, soapy water will normally remove dried latex.
Remove immediately, as prolonged contact will result in permanent staining. Use a cloth lightly dampened with mineral spirits and rub the stain gently, working from the outer edge of the stain towards the center in order to prevent spreading. Rinse with soap and water.
CRAYON, MUSTARD, KETCHUP
Sponge with mild soap and water. For stubborn stains that may have set, use a cloth soaked in diluted mild detergent with gentle rubbing. Any remaining stain should be washed with diluted bleach. Rinse repeatedly with clear cold water.
BLOOD, LEAF RESIDUE
Rub out any spots with a clean cloth soaked in cool water. If stubborn spots remain, use household ammonia or diluted bleach and rinse repeatedly with a clean, wet cloth. Do not use hot water or soapsuds, as this will set the stain.
LIPSTICK, GREASE, OIL, EYESHADOW, SHOE POLISH
Apply a small quantity of mineral spirits with a cloth and gentle rubbing. Take care not to spread the stain by extending it beyond the original boundary. Shoe polish
should be removed immediately, so permanent staining does not occur. Rinse thoroughly with water.
Scrape off as much as possible with a dull knife. Rubbing with an ice cube will assist and make it easier to remove upon scraping. The remaining gum should then be removed in a well-ventilated area using a cloth saturated with mineral spirits. Use light rubbing. Rinse thoroughly with clean water
CANDY, ICE CREAM, COFFEE, TEA, FRUIT STAINS, ALCOHOL, WINE, SUNTAN LOTION, SOFT DRINKS
Use clear, lukewarm water and a sponge repeatedly. Any loose material should be gently scraped with a dull knife. Any soiled area remaining after drying should be gently rubbed with a cloth spotted with a mild detergent solution. Rinse thoroughly with clean water.
BIRD EXCRETA, NAUSEA STAINS
Sponge the stained area with soapy water, containing a diluted bleach, until the stain is removed. Rinse thoroughly with water.
Sponge with soapy water containing a small amount of household ammonia. Rinse thoroughly with clear water.
Wash with diluted bleach, use a soft brush for stubborn growth. Rinse repeatedly with clean water
Cast aluminium: We advise using a dry woollen cloth.
HOW TO CARE FOR FURNITURE WITH FABRIC UPHOLSTERY
Whether or not your upholstered furnishings are purely decorative or both functional and stylish, careful cleaning and maintenance of the fabric grants long term satisfaction.
To fully enjoy your fabric seating and ensure its longevity, please follow a few basic rules:
Don’t place your seating near a fireplace that’s in use.
Avoid exposure to excessive sunlight.
Be careful with jeans that can transfer colour onto the fabric: this may be unfixable.
Don’t expose your seating to scratches from pets or sharp objects (e.g. studs, buckles).
CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
Routine maintenance helps keep your upholstered furniture in perfect condition. Vacuum clean the upholstery regularly to keep the fabric in good shape and prevent dust, hair and crumbs from settling into the body of the furniture. Be careful with fringes and tassels: vacuum clean them only with low power.
Remove spills and other accidental stains as soon as possible, but never with harsh soaps or detergents. In the case of an old and dried up stain, the first step is always vacuuming.
For stain removal use a specialized stain cleaner such as HG stain remover or a similar product. Follow the instruction on the packaging and always try the solution on an inconspicuous part of the upholstery before using it on a more noticeable portion.
To maintain the original softness and resilience of the cushions, hand fluff and reverse the cushions regularly.
Viscose or Bamboo silk rugs:
To remove the dust, take the rug outside and shake it to release dirt and debris or vacuum it with a canister vacuum -
In case of fresh spots, apply a spot remover (liquid shampoo) with cold water to any spots on the rug.
Dry the wet areas quickly. Use an air mover (like a fan), dehumidifier or other type of drying equipment to speed the process.
Don't use any washing/ industrial machine
After cleaning the spots with shampoo you should comb the wet spot so the pile will become uniform
In case the spot isn't fresh, take it to a specialized company.
Warnings: - Understand that you need to keep the rug dry as possible even when cleaning.
Keep the rug in an area without much traffic.
COTTON WOOL RUGS
For cleaning cotton wool rugs use a steam cleaner or professional cleaning mentioning the composition of the rug (cotton wool).
