CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS FOR WOOL/WOOLBLEND UPHOLSTERY FABRICS
Weekly light vacuuming is desirable to remove dirt and dust particles and greatly extends the life of the fabric. Under conditions of normal wear, annual or semi- annual cleaning will preserve and enhance wool/wool blend upholstery. Housekeeping schedules, however, should be site-specific and correctly adapted to the nature and degree of usage experienced. Seating in the vicinity of food counters or bars, for example, is obviously more prone to abuse and should therefore be subject to more frequent attention. Call in professional cleaning services or use only reputable brands of upholstery shampoo and follow the maker's instructions exactly, first testing the product on an inconspicuous part of the furniture. Never use soap, ammonia, bleach or other cleaners intended for use on hard surfaces.
If something should be spilt or dropped on wool/woolblend furnishing fabric, the golden rule for removing stains is speed. Most spots will vanish if treated immediately and are not allowed to dry in, so keep the necessary cleaning materials all together in one convenient place. First, mop up any excess liquid with absorbent tissue or a clean cloth and scoop up dry solids on a spoon. Most stains can be treated with one of three cleaning liquids - dry cleaning fluid, upholstery shampoo or clean water. Use the cleaning method shown in the chart. Always work inwards from the edge of the stain to prevent spreading. Do not over-wet the fabric but use small amounts of cleaning liquid at a time and blot between applications. Liquids should never be pressed through the fabric. Continue until the stain has disappeared. Do not rush or panic, but work patiently and thoroughly. If the stain cannot be identified or removed, seek expert advice from a reputable dry cleaning organisation. CAUTION! DRY CLEANING FLUIDS MAY BE TOXIC OR FLAMMABLE.
