- Regular cleaning is important in order to keep the upholstery textile looking its best and to prolong its life. Dust and dirt wear down the textile and also reduce its fire-retardant properties.
- Normal cleaning involves vacuuming frequently, ideally every week, at half power where appropriate.
If you act quickly, it is not difficult to remove spills and prevent stains from forming. However, complete stain removal cannot be guaranteed.
- First, scrape off any liquids or hardened residues with a spoon or a scoop before you proceed. Any loose particles must be vacuum cleaned before further cleaning.
- Liquids must be soaked up with an absorbent napkin or cloth.
- Remove non-greasy stains by carefully dabbing with a lint-free cloth or sponge wrung out in warm water.
- Edge marks can be avoided by dabbing gently in circular motions towards the centre of the stain with a clean lint-free cloth.
- Remove greasy stains by using appropriate detergents or solvents. In all cases, we recommend to test stain-removal agents on an inconspicuous area first, to see if there is any effect on the cover.
- Make sure to dry the fabric fully before use. It may also be necessary to use a hairdryer to avoid leaving edge marks.
- These tips are purely recommendations and cannot guarantee complete stain removal. In all cases, we recommend contacting a professional dry cleaning.
- In order to ensure satisfactory results, particularly for large stains, we recommend contacting a professional dry cleaner. It is important to state whether the stain has already undergone treatment.
- Due to excess dye in jeans, dark jeans may leave stains on textiles. Washing and cleaning may not always lead to satisfying results.
- Warning – do not rub the material hard because this could result in loss of colour or potentially damage the nap.
- Be careful when using solvents; these could dissolve the upholstery materials beneath. Never use un-concentrated detergents or bleach, ammonia or soap intended for hard surfaces.
- Removing stains from textiles in the Divina range can be difficult, as the fabric is being pressed after fulling in order to achieve the felt-like surface.
- Particularly on new woollen covers, the fibres will slightly rise when the fabric becomes moist. The moist area will appear as a darker stain. The textile cannot be pressed again, however, it is possible to reduce the discoloration by spraying water over the entire furniture piece.
- When using the furniture and at normal humidity levels, the wool fibres will rise and potential stains will become less visible.
