Avoid positioning your furniture in direct sunlight where it will fade.
Do not use detergents or cleaning chemicals, as these could further mark the fabric.
Use of the Guardsman care products, following the manufacturer’s instructions, is recommended.
A vacuum with an upholstery brush attached can be used to remove dust and other environmental debris from the upholstery and under the seat cushions. Dust/grime can mark the fabric, and be harder to clean if left.
We also recommend dry cleaning only. As the seat cushions are fixed in place, please have them professionally cleaned in place at home.
Maintaining your Sofa:
Try to utilise all seating and rotate the cushions where possible to ensure even wearing at least one a week. As the cushions are feather-filled, they need to be ‘beaten up’ regularly to retain their shape. If the cushions are left for long periods of time without any care they will flatten quite significantly.
Wearing in your Sofa:
If your new sofa looks and feels a little different to the one you saw in store (it may feel a bit firmer and the fabric/leather a bit tighter), that’s because your sofa is brand new and hasn’t had the chance to be worn in by many visitors, like the display model has had the opportunity to receive in store. So give your sofa time to gradually “wear in” and adapt to your way of life and it will then develop a more casual appearance, each with its own unique character.
