Do not use harsh detergents or chemicals:

Do NOT use harsh detergents or chemicals on your suite as they can dull the sheen of the material as well as cause premature fading. Some household cleaners and solvents remove plasticizers from PU, making them brittle. Abrasive cleaners scratch the smooth surface.

Watch out for the sun:

Do NOT expose your lounge suite to direct sunlight and never allow heaters to be in range of your suite.

Important tip:

An important tip to remember is to clean and maintain the arms of the suite – this is the area that is subject to the perspiration from the palms of the hands and foodstuffs. It is vital to maintain the arm areas regularly by simply wiping them down with clean warm water and towel dry…as simple as that!

Fabric cleaning guidelines:

The general approach to cleaning our Genuine Leather, Leather Upper and Leather Look suites is the same. As a rule, do not ever apply anything other than clean water with a soft, clean cloth on your Reclineronline suite.
Reclineronline’s soft fabric covers include upholsteries like chenille (a woven fabric) and microfibre fabrics like synthetic suede.
To remove light stains in these fabrics, dab the area with a clean, wet cloth or consult a cleaning specialist for more sophisticated help. We also recommend that you get your suite professionally dry–or steam-cleaned every once in a while.

How to care for your Grafton Everest suite

Leather and Leather Uppers

Always try any cleaning method in a hidden area first, just to make sure of the results.

Never use cleaning solvents, furniture polish, oils, varnish, abrasive cleaners, or ammonia water. They are freely available in all retail stores and promise the world, but in our experience they are very harmful to natural hides.

For minor spots and spills, wipe up any excess liquid immediately with a clean absorbent cloth or sponge. If necessary, use a lightly moistened soft cloth with clean lukewarm water, and let it air dry naturally. If water is used, clean the entire area where the spot occurred.

To clean accumulated dirt, use a slightly damp soft cloth to wipe the surface. Before doing this for the first time, test the leather in an inconspicuous spot to make sure it doesn’t absorb the water. Use only a dry cloth if absorption occurs. For butter, oil, or grease stains, wipe off excess with a clean dry cloth, then leave alone as the spot should dissipate into the leather after a short period of time.If the stain persists, it is recommended that a professional leather specialist clean the leather to avoid any potential damage to the leather itself.

For minor or slight scratches on the surface, use a chamois or clean fingers to gently buff the scratch. If needed, moisten lightly with distilled water to work scratches out.

Fabric

Always try any cleaning method in a hidden area first, just to make sure of the results.

Vacuum:
Vacuum fabric upholstery on a regular basis to lessen the overall amount of dirt that gets collected on the furniture and prevent dust and dirt from getting fixed in between the fibres of the fabric.
Use the clean, soft brush attachment on the vacuum cleaner and ensure any loose threads are trimmed and that all buttons are securely sewed on to prevent the vacuum cleaner from pulling them off.

Deep clean:
On top of regular vacuuming it is advisable to deep clean the upholstery on your couches every year or so
This can either be done professionally or at home with a store-bought cleaning detergent or foam cleaner.
When opting for the DIY option, always refer to the cleaning instructions and remove all the soap after cleaning. If you leave any detergent to soak into your upholstery, it could weaken and ruin the colour of the fabric.

Take care of spots and stains:
Upholstery is almost certain to encounter stains and spills, especially on frequently used furniture in high-traffic areas of the home. Here are some tips for cleaning stains and spills…

Don’t rub the spill, it will move the fluid deeper into the fibres of the fabric and create a stain. Rather blot the spill to remove liquid without allowing it to seep further into the fabric

Use a white cloth or white paper towel. Colourful cloths can transfer their colour onto your upholstery and cause an even bigger stain.
