How do motorised recliners work ?

Any recliner can be ordered as an electronic recliner at an additional fee, and your recliner will be delivered with a battery operated mechanism, and a three point plug. All you need to do is plug it in and you are just a button press away from recliner relaxation. 

What makes up a leather upper recliner or suite ?

A leather upper covering is a combination of full genuine leather as well as a leather look, synthetic fabric. The main touch points of a suite are covered in genuine leather panels, while the balance of the suite is covered in the synthetic leather look. These main touch points include: middle panel backrest, front main armrests, seating area and bottom footrest. The leather look panels include the outsides and back of the suite, the side panels of the front backrest and the middle of the footrest.

What is the best way to clean and take care of my recliner?

The general approach to cleaning all Reclineronline suites, regardless of the fabric, is the same and quite simple! The golden rule is “never apply anything other than clean warm water with a soft, clean cloth on your Reclineronline suite.” It is very important that you DO NOT clean with any other chemicals or dishwashers.

Here are some tips on how to keep your suite looking great year after year.

  • Deal with surface spills as soon as possible. In most situations, wiping any liquids as soon as possible after the spill takes place, before it dries, will require only a damp cloth.
  • Vacuum or dust the upholstery as part of a regular cleaning routine and tis simple action will make a big difference in how your suite holds up over time. Dust can collect in tiny folds on upholstered furniture and vacuuming out the folds eliminates odours and helps your upholstery look new over an extended period.
  • 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.
  • Do NOT expose your lounge suite to direct sunlight and never allow heaters to be in range of your suite.
  • Use warm water only. Immerse a clean cloth or sponge in the water and wring out the excess. Make sure to use a clean towel to dry the area after cleaning.
  • 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!
