Care & Maintenance

Thank you for choosing and investing in a FURNISH piece of furniture for your home. To ensure the best longevity for your furniture, please be sure to always follow our Care & Maintenance guidelines and tips:

GENERAL CARE & MAINTENANCE OF LOUNGE FURNITURE

  • Never drag furniture, always lift it carefully to reposition/move
  • We recommend using floor protectors on the legs of furniture to protect floors from potential damage.
  • Never stand on furniture or sit on the arms of chairs or sofas.
  • Do not place indoor furniture near direct light (ie sunlight) or heat sources (ie fireplaces, heaters, air conditioning vents), as they can fade and crack the upholstery.

LEATHER FURNITURE

  • A weekly clean with a soft, lint-free cloth dampened with water is the best (and easiest) way to maintain your leather furniture. However regular leather maintenance is recommended to ensure the longevity of your upholstery leather. We sell leather care kits consisting of leather cleaners, conditioners and protective coatings. You should aim to clean and condition your leather furniture every 4-6 months. Enquire in store about the correct maintenance products for your particular leather.
  • Wipe up any food or drink spills straight away, as the leather can absorb liquids, leaving permanent marks.
  • Special care is required if you are on specific medications as these can leach through the skin into the leather.

FABRIC FURNITURE

  • Vacuum regularly with an upholstery attachment. This will help remove dirt and grime which can discolour and act as an abrasive on your furniture.
  • If you can, rotate and flip the cushions to ensure even wear.
  • Enlist the services of a professional upholstery cleaning service once a year to clean your furniture.

SOLID TIMBER & VENEER FURNITURE

  • Always wipe up spills as soon as they happen, to avoid marking.
  • Always use table runners, placemats and coasters to protect the surface of your furniture.
  • Dust with a damp cloth weekly to remove dust and grime.
  • Don’t place hot or wet items directly onto the furniture as these can permanently mark the surface.
  • Avoid direct sunlight as this can fade your furniture. 

 HIGH-GLOSS FURNITURE

  • Always wipe up spills as soon as they happen, to avoid marking.
  • Always use table runners, placemats and coasters to protect the surface of your furniture.
  • Streak marks and fingerprints may be removed with glass cleaner and a soft lint-free cloth.
  • Don’t place hot or wet items directly onto the furniture as these can permanently mark the surface.
  • Avoid direct sunlight as this can fade your furniture.
