Fabric Care Tips

Here are tips for keeping your upholstery looking clean and fresh:

Loose Cushions and pillows should be flipped, rotated and fluffed on a weekly basis to keep filling materials evenly distributed and allow for even wear.
Vacuum all upholstery once a week with a brush attachment only. Feather Down Cushions cannot be vacuumed; instead, use a sofa whisk broom or soft brush to clean fabric.
Pilling is normal for all fabrics when they shed their excess fibre. Using a fabric shaver will remove
unwanted pills.
Direct Sunlight, heat and moisture should be kept away from upholstery as fading and discoloration may occur.
Never Sit on the recliner’s footrest, the end of an open sleeper, the arms of furniture or an ottoman.
Moving? Always lift your upholstered furniture. Never drag or push furniture to a new location. This could damage your floor or furniture.
Professionally Clean your Fabric Sofas once a year.

Wood Care Tips

For proper care and maintenance of your wooden furniture follow the tips below:

Wood Breathes, Expands and Contracts. Each piece of furniture responds differently to changes in temperature and humidity in your home. Expansion at the joints and seams will return to its original shape and size as seasons change.
Protective Coverings such as felt backed place mats and table pads will help protect the finish on your furniture. This is especially important for wood furniture that is used in kitchen areas.
Polish Wood 2-3 times per year with furniture wood polish. Dust with a soft lint-free cloth.
Treat Drawer Glides with Vaseline or candle wax for smooth operation.
Void Leaning Chairs back on two legs – to protect structural integrity and your personal safety.
Table Leaves should always be stored flat. *Opening & closing of dining tables requires two people, when inserting or removing table leaves. This will avoid damaging table legs.
Never Move a bed while it is set-up. Always remove bedding and disconnect side rails to avoid
structural damage.
Keep Furniture Out Of Sunlight to avoid sun damage and bleaching.
Keep Furniture Away From Heating/Air Conditioning Sources as they affect the moisture content
of the wood.
Do Not Set Synthetics, RUBBER OR PLASTICS on the wood finish as the chemicals may damage the finish.
Do Not Leave Newspapers and magazines on wood because the inks can bleed onto the finish and
into the wood.
Periodically Adjust levellers and door hinges to ensure smooth operation of doors and drawers.

Expectations

Because each piece of wood is unique, you can expect variations in grain appearance and stain coloration.
Random distressing applied by hand adds a distinctive heirloom appearance to the finish of some pieces. Ask your Sales Consultant if your furniture has this feature.
Many wood pieces include levellers and door hinges that must be periodically adjusted to ensure smooth operation of doors and drawers.

Mattress Care Tips

It’s important to care for your new sleep surface so that it lasts for years to come. Here are proper steps to protect your investment. Choose your sleep surface.

Ensure proper center support is used for queen and king sized bedding. (Required for warranty).
Allow your new bedding to air out. Residual odours from the manufacturing process may be present at first. They are not harmful and will dissipate with time.
Use a high quality, washable mattress pad to keep your mattress clean and stain-free.
Expect body impressions to form in the surface padding. They are normal and indicate that the layers are moulding to your body’s contours.
Rotate and flip your mattress according to the manufacturer’s warranty to minimize body impressions and prolong its comfort and life.
Take time to adjust to your new mattress – it can take up to one month.
Do not remove the law label from your mattress. This is needed to identify your appropriate warranty coverage.

Carpets & Rugs Care Tips

With proper maintenance and rug padding, you can maximize your area rug investment. The following tips can be used on all types of rugs, and can keep your rug looking great!

Frequent vacuuming benefits all rugs, but please do not vacuum rug fringe, or use beater- bar attachments on hooked rugs.
Turn rugs 180 degrees annually to alternate wear patterns and even out sun exposure.
Spot clean all spills with soda water, blotting with a white cloth. Quick reaction helps minimize the chances of a stain ‘setting.’ All stubborn stains should be treated by a professional rug cleaner.
