We take pride in offering the highest grade, premium fabrics for all your furniture and accessories. Each fabric in our collection undergoes rigorous testing for durability, seam strength, and colour-fastness. To ensure your fabrics continue to look and feel luxurious for years to come, we've put together this comprehensive care guide.

Regular Cleaning is Key

One of the simplest ways to extend the life of your fabric is regular cleaning. Focus on areas that come in direct contact with skin or hair, such as seats, armrests, and headrests. A weekly vacuum using low suction and a soft brush accessory will effectively remove dust and damaging dirt particles.

Choosing the Right Cleaning Products

We highly recommend using King-Care® cleaning products, specifically designed to clean, protect, and maximise the life of your fabric. Apply King-Care® Fabric Cleaner and Protection every 6 to 8 weeks for optimal results. Remember, over-cleaning can be harmful; adhere to the recommended frequency and avoid vigorous rubbing or soaking the fabric.

What Cleaning Products to Avoid 

It's important to avoid using detergents, alcohol, chemicals, soaps, shoe polish, wax, window cleaner, silicone, saddle soap, or any cleaning product not specifically designed for your fabric type. Using inappropriate cleaners can cause irreversible damage.

Advantages of Professional Cleaning  

While steam cleaning and spot cleaning can be effective, they must be done correctly. Improper techniques can lead to watermarks and cellulosic browning, which can tarnish the appearance of your fabric.

Professional cleaning achieves the best results for several key reasons:

  1. Professional cleaners possess specialised knowledge and skills in dealing with various types of fabrics and stains. This expertise allows them to choose the most effective cleaning methods and products for each specific situation.
  2. Professionals use high-grade cleaning equipment that is more powerful and efficient than typical household cleaning tools. This equipment can deeply clean without damaging the fabric, ensuring thorough removal of dirt, stains, and allergens.
  3. Professional cleaners have access to a wide range of cleaning agents. They can select the most suitable solutions that are effective yet gentle on the fabric.
  4. Professional cleaning saves time and effort.
  5. Professionals know how to care for fabrics in a way that extends their life. Proper cleaning techniques prevent damage and wear, keeping fabrics looking new for longer.
  6. Professional cleaners are trained to handle and dispose of cleaning agents safely. They also ensure that the cleaned items are safe and healthy for use, especially important for people with allergies or sensitivities.
  7. Many professional cleaning services offer guarantees, providing peace of mind that the job will be done correctly and to a high standard.
