Care tips and guidelines What you will need to know about furniture

Upholstered furniture is often purchased for reasons of appearance. As well as design, seating comfort and modern comfort functions are important decision factors. Regardless of material, construction and manufacturing, there are important product characteristics to take into consideration because later changes due to normal, natural usage do not represent a material defect.

High-quality leather with its unmistakable natural characteristics will make your sofa »unique«. Since not all leather is the same and you could choose from many different qualities and colours in our leather collection, i.e. from about 150 possibilities, the question now arises, which care is the right one for my W.SCHILLIG upholstery?

Like all textiles in daily use (carpets, clothing), furniture upholstery fabrics are also subject to constant dust and contact soiling. It therefore goes without saying that regular care and cleaning is essential and serves to maintain the value and beauty of your upholstered furniture.

Care of leather

The right care of leather

Leather is like your second skin, because they care for you too!

Leather needs our help if it is to keep its natural attractiveness, its wonderfully soft feel and its natural characteristics in the long term. We can help by regularly cleaning leather and then treating it with essential moisturising and care products. Leather can no longer regenerate itself and depends on effective care from the outside. Without our care, daily use can cause leather to lose its beauty, become dirty, dry out or lose its colour intensity.

 

Useful tips and basic for cleaning a leather

Useful tips for cleaning a leather

  1. First clean, then care. Cleaning products can only be absorbed by leather if the pores have first been cleaned and are free from dirt particles.
  2. Work from seam to seam over large areas.
  3. Always apply cleaning and care products with a sponge or cloth.
  4. Do not use solvent.
  5. Clean and treat upholstered furniture regularly (at least every 6 months).
  6. Don’t use microfibre towels but soft and lint-free biological towels.
  7. Avoid unsightly, chalky tide marks by using distilled water for cleaning.
  8. Deal with stains immediately by dabbing them off carefully, always working from the outside in.
  9. After cleaning, allow the cover to dry thoroughly and only then apply cleaning products.
