furniture care

Thank you for allowing Carolina Chair to furnish your home.

 

Your Carolina Chair furniture is made for living! Here are a few maintenance suggestions to help sustain the life of your quality, upholstered furniture.

 

Our furniture is made for living!General

  • Arrange your furniture with the environment in mind. Protect your upholstery from sunlight, excessive humidity and dryness by carefully choosing where your furniture will be placed.
     
  • Vacuum your furniture regularly using a soft brush attachment.
     
  • Blot spills immediately with a clean dry white cloth. If the spill becomes a stain, check the fabric's cleaning instructions. The cleaning code can be found under the center seat cushion.
     
  • Furniture is for living, however, two common things can decrease the lifespan of your upholstery fabric:
    1. Allowing pets on the furniture.
    2. Placing newspaper on the furniture.

Cushions, Backs, and Throw Pillows

  • Reverse all seat cushions and back pillows regularly. The cushions should also be rotated from side to side where possible.
     
  • Back and throw pillows should be fluffed regularly to maintain full appearance and total comfort.
     
  • Remove the cores for seats, backs, and throw pillows where applicable before any cleaning.
     
  • Do not wash or dry cushion, back or throw pillow cores ... this will cause melting and bonding of the fibers.

Cleaning Codes

  • W - Best to use a water based cleaner
    Spot clean using only the foam from a water-based cleaning product such as mild detergent or non-solvent upholstery shampoo. Apply foam with a soft brush in a circular motion. Vacuum thoroughly when dry.

     

  • S - Best to use a solvent cleaner
    Spot clean using mild water-free solvent or dry cleaning product. Clean only in a well-ventilated room and avoid any product containing carbon tetrachloride or other toxic materials. Cleaning by a professional furniture cleaning service is recommended. CAUTION: Use of water-based or detergent-based solvent cleaners may cause excessive shrinking. Water stains may become permanent and unable to be removed with solvent cleaning agents. To prevent overall soil, frequent vacuuming or light brushing to remove dust and grime is recommended.

     

  • WS - Best to use a water or solvent cleaner
    Either of the first two cleaning methods can be used.

Cleaning this stain and soil resistant fabric is easy!

1. Most spills should come right out if cleaned immediately. Remove as much surface stain as possible with a soft tissue or cloth. Be careful not to spread the stain.

2. Using a mixture of mild dishwashing soap, diluted about 20 parts water to 1 part soap, apply a small amount of liquid to the stain. Wait about three minutes, then rub with a soft cloth in a circular motion until the stain is removed.

3. Using water and a clean cloth, remove the soap. Pat the area dry with a soft cloth or air dry.

4. Brush the area in the direction of the nap to return the surface to its original condition.

Extremely stubborn stains may be cleaned using commercial cleaners such as Resolve™, Carbona™, or Bissel™. To use, follow the above steps.

Note: Do not use solvents, bleach, or cleaners with high PH solutions, as they will permanently discolor the fabric.

This elegant upholstery fabric has the look and feel of ultra-soft suede, yet the surface is 100% nylon with a polyester and cotton substrate which guarantees a high resistance to abrasion.

Cleaning this stain, soil resistant and fade proof fabric is easy!

Sunbrella® brand fabrics should be cleaned regularly before substances such as dirt and food particles are allowed to accumulate on and become embedded in the fabric. The fabric can be cleaned without being removed from the piece by simply brushing off any loose dirt, etc. and cleaning with water and a mild soap solution (no more than 100 degrees F).

If the fabric can be removed from furniture, it may be cleaned in a mild soap and lukewarm water solution (less than 100 degrees F) in a washing machine and dried in an environment also less than 100 degrees F. When washing or cleaning, do not subject to excessive heat as the fabric will shrink. Do not steam press or dry in electric or gas dryers. Allow fabric to air dry.

Cleaning Solutions

The recommended cleaning solution for most stains consists of 0.5 ounce of antibacterial dishwashing liquid to 22.5 ounces of water. For stubborn stains, please consult the Stain Chart on the Sunbrella website.

Cleaning Method

  1. Remove any residual soil by lightly brushing or scraping the stain. Attempt to remove stain by sponging with water.
  2. If further cleaning is needed, apply light mist of our recommended cleaning solution using a spray bottle.
  3. Work the solution into the stain by lightly scrubbing the area with a sponge or very soft bristle brush.
  4. Remove cleaning solution with a wet-vac if possible, but at the very least blot with a clean soft towel or sponge to remove the stain and excess cleaning solution. Repeat steps 2-4 until stain is removed.
  5. Rinse the affected area thoroughly with clean water (applied with a spray bottle) and extract the remaining moisture using a wet-vac, sponge, or towel. Repeat rinsing method if needed to thoroughly remove cleaning solution from the fabric.

Helpful Hints

  • Vacuum the fabric prior to cleaning.
  • Minimize spread of the stain to the surrounding clean fibers.
  • Do not be alarmed if stain is not removed after first application and removal of cleaning solution.
  • Do not use a stiff brush that may abrade fabric.
  • Rinse thoroughly.

Life is full of little accidents. That's why you need Sunbrella furniture fabrics. They're fade-proof, stain-resistant, easy to clean and just plain livable. Sunbrella is perfect for the messy indoors.
