All of our furniture fabrics carry the furniture industry’s cleanability code adopted in 1969. It gives information about the proper methods to clean specific fabrics. Each product in our catalog lists the specific cleaning code for that particular fabric or leather. When spot cleaning, pre-test fabric for discoloration and/or shrinkage on an incon- spicuous part of the furniture. When overall cleaning is required, professional cleaning will often achieve the most satisfactory results. Never remove cushion covers or arm caps for separate cleaning. This may destroy the backing or cause shrinking and color changes.
Cleaning Code = W
Code W stands for ‘Water based cleaner’ and these are the easiest fabrics to clean. This is not the same as being machine washable, however. This code means that you can spot clean your fabric with a water-based shampoo or foam upholstery cleaner. You can use a brush to agitate the cleaner or even an upholstery attachment on a carpet cleaner. Be careful to avoid over-wetting the stain.
Cleaning Code = S
Fabrics that are Code S must be cleaned with solvents (dry clean only). You can spot treat stains with a water-free solvent or dry-cleaning product. Use solvent cleaners in a well-ventilated room and keep away from open flames. Avoid using cleaning products containing carbon tetrachloride, as it is highly toxic.
Cleaning Code = WS
A WS code, as you might expect, means that a combination of dry cleaning solvents and water-based cleaners may be used. These fabrics can be spot cleaned with upholstery shampoo, foam from a mild detergent, or a mild dry cleaning solvent. This is a case where the pre-test is especially important. For overall dirt, call a professional to clean these fabrics.
Cleaning Code = X
If you have fabrics with Code X, they can only be cleaned by vacuuming or light brushing. A Code X means the fabric is not cleanable with water or solvent cleaners.
Cleaning Code = Leather
For leather furniture, you may use a lightly dampened soft cloth with water to dust your leather. You may also use the soft brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner. Otherwise, professional cleaning is recommended.
