After Rental/Sale Care


  • How should I take care of my furniture?
    • Taking proper care of your new furniture will help keep it looking beautiful for many years. Take into account, the same amount of dust that builds up on your end tables, coffee table and television also builds up on your upholstery furniture; it’s just not as noticeable on fabric. To preserve that showroom look, vacuum and wipe your furniture regularly.


  • If possible, flip and rotate your cushions once a month. Cushion flipping and rotating ensure even fabric fading and foam core wear.
  • If there are zippers on the backs or arms of your upholstery furniture, don’t hesitate to unzip them, reach inside and fluff the stuffing. It’ll keep your furniture looking new longer.
  • Have your upholstered furniture cleaned by a trained, insured professional. It’s a small investment that will extend the beauty life of your furniture.
  • Avoid eating and drinking while sitting on your upholstery, and make sure to clean up spills immediately before they soak in. Here are some upholstery cleaning codes and what they mean to you:

Dealing with Spots/Stains/Fabric

1. My furniture’s fabric is pilling. What can I do about it?

  • Good news- pilling isn’t a fabric defect. It is simply the fabric’s tendency to release excess fibers that become trapped in the weave. You can maintain pilling easily using a fabric shaver. Using a fabric shaver on a regular basis will control pilling until the fabric stops shedding.

2. How do I clean my upholstered furniture if it gets soiled?

  • If your upholstered furniture gets soiled, you have two options. Rent  a vacuum steam cleaner and a cleaning solution to remove the stain. Second option is to contact a upholster cleaning technician do the work.

Here are some upholstery cleaning codes and what they mean to you:
Cleaning Code

  • W - Spot clean with water-based upholstery shampoo or foam upholstery cleaner. Avoid over-wetting the fabric. Use a professional cleaner for overall cleaning.
  • S - Use a water-free upholstery cleaning agent for occasional spot cleaning. Don’t use water—it may cause shrinking, bleeding or water spots.
  • WS - Use either water-based or solvent-based upholstery cleaners to spot clean.
  • X - Don’t use any cleaning chemicals. Instead, use a nonmetallic brush to loosen soil from the fabric. This cleaning code is most commonly found on silk- and satin-upholstered products.
