Company Information


Furniture is a big ticket item and can be permanently damaged when the wrong products are used to clean it.  If you are not sure how to clean your furniture, or if the cleaning codes are not available, it may be best to call a professional cleaner.  Consult a professional before treating your upholstery with fabric protector, as the chemicals in some products can be harmful to fabric backing.   

To prevent furniture from fading, it is important to keep it out of direct sunlight.  When this is not possible, plan to cover your furniture during times of direct exposure.  Your furniture dealer can also assist you with choosing fade-resistant fabrics when purchasing new pieces.  

For an enjoyable experience, deodorize your upholstery on a regular basis.

Upholstery Cleaning Codes

  • ​    S:​  Clean fabric with a dry cleaning solvent that is water free.  Test for color fastness and use sparingly.
  •     W:  ​Clean fabric with a water based solution, such as a mild detergent and water or a foam upholstery cleaner.  Avoid over wetting.

  •  WS:  ​Depending on the stain, use a water based solution, dry cleaning solvent or upholstery shampoo. 

  •     X:   Fabric should be professionally cleaned only.  Vacuum or brush lightly to remove dust, dirt and debris.  Do not use cleaning solvents or           water based solutions on fabric.

Your furniture plays an important role in the look and feel of your home decor.  Knowing how to properly care for and clean your upholstery is an important part of keeping your furniture pieces looking great.

Before attempting to remove a stain from your upholstery, make sure you know what type of fabric it is covered with.  Most furniture companies provide standardized cleaning codes and instructions which list the preferred spot cleaning method.  Usually, these can be found on the manufacturers tag which should be located on the underside of your furniture piece.  If these codes are not available, you should contact the service department of the company where you purchased  your furniture to obtain more information about cleaning your upholstery.  

We recommend that you first test any cleaning product in an inconspicuous area.


Furnishing your home with quality furnishings is a major investment.  You've spent countless hours searching for inspiration, shopping around and finding just the right spot for your new pieces.  With proper care, your furnishings should provide many years of enjoyment for you, your family and your guests.  

Below are some tips to help you care for your furniture and keep it looking great!
