Maintaining and cleaning your upholstery fabrics lengthens its life. Gelderland fabrics are very easy to clean. Using the right cleaning agents and methods is essential. You could also contact a specialist upholstery cleaner.
Weekly maintenance of your upholstery fabric will ensure that dust and fibre particles cannot build up or attach themselves to the fabric. It is important to vacuum your furniture with a smooth tool and to also clean in between the cushions (watch out for any sharp edges on the end of the tube). Aim of regularly hovering is to remove dirt particles, dust and sand (which have an abrasive effect, also in and around the seams).
Regarding periodic maintenance the biggest issue is a build-up of grease from the skin. You will find this especially on the arm and head rests and the seat. A dull or oily patch could eventually become visible. Grease from the skin can be treated very well with James Water (www.james.eu). Spray James Water on a dry towel and using slow long strokes rub this over the stained areas.
Removing stains: In case of stains we recommend using only water and a towel. Soak the towel in lukewarm water and squeeze out any excessive water. Spread the towel over the stain and leave until it is dry without lifting it up (can take up to 24 hours). The stain will be largely absorbed into the cotton fibres of the towel. Any remaining stains can be treated with James Water or James Stain Remover. You can check on www.james.eu, in combination with the type of stain, which solution is best.
There are several maintenance products available. Gelderland advises LCK's products. On the LCK website you can find all the advice and related products under the logo of Gelderland.
