Avoid outdoor use and exposure to water or prolonged moisture. Avoid exposure to direct heat or sunlight as this can cause the sofa color to fade. Keep sharp objects away from your sofa. A little tear on the fabric cover may be hard to repair. If you have removable back cushions (or put extra cushions on your sofa), do reverse them periodically and fluff them up while arranging so that the cushion stays even. Vacuum your sofas periodically with a soft bristled brush attachment or lightly brush them to keep general dirt and dust off the sofa and prevent any embedding between the fibers. Try to avoid food and drink spillage of any kind. If spills occur, do not leave unattended. In case of a stain, a water-free fabric cleaner can be used. However, avoid applying the cleaner directly on the stain as this can cause damage to the fabric and fade color. Pour the cleaner onto a clean cloth and test its effect on a hidden area of the sofa before cleaning the stain with the cloth. Getting your sofa professionally cleaned once every 6-8 months will not only take care of the nooks and corners that you can’t reach, it will also make it more durable. Fiber-filled backs and armrests will flatten with regular use. However, they can be brought back to shape as easily as a normal pillow. Leatherette products need to undergo periodic maintenance to prevent cracking or peeling in the long run. Vinyl conditioner or leather conditioner needs to be applied to the product every 3 to 4 months for a long product life.
