Rules for removing accidental stains and dirt, depending on their type.
Before removing the stain, remember to determine what type of substance caused it and check the composition of the fabric from which the upholstery is made. This will allow you to use agents which will remove the stain but not damage the fabric.
Before cleaning, test the fastness of the dyes used in the fabric on a small invisible area.
Stain removal should be carried out as soon as possible after the stain is spotted. This is because a fresh stain is much easier to remove than an old one, as the substance causing the stain does not have time to penetrate the fibres of the fabric.
Immediately blot the stain substance using an absorbent cloth. Do this in a gentle circular motion towards the centre of the stain. Do not rub! Do not stretch or pull the fabric!
- Strong acids damage fabrics, especially those with plant fibres (cotton).
- Hot water and caustic soaps destroy synthetic fibre materials.
For greasy or wet stains, use blotting paper first and then a clean, damp, soft sponge to quickly absorb the stain. Then clean with lukewarm water and a neutral detergent for hand washing. Rinse with clean water. Wipe with a cloth and leave to dry at room temperature.
If the stain is dried on, use a blunt instrument such as a spoon to remove the excess stain and then follow the instructions in the previous paragraph.
Do not pour water or water with detergent over the fabric.
Never sit on upholstered furniture until the cover is completely dry.
Once dry, clean the furniture on the lowest power of the hoover using the furniture cleaning nozzle.
To clean stains, use solvents, bleach or stain removers in small quantities. For professional products, always follow the instructions. Test the product on an inconspicuous area of furniture before use.
Read the information on the product container and follow the safety instructions. Always clean with an open window and away from the fire.
Do not mix chemicals. If you have already cleaned the fabric with one chemical, first dry it thoroughly, rinse it and then clean it with another chemical.
When using solvent do not apply it directly to the stain, use a clean cloth.
After the treatment with solvents, it is important to remove them carefully together with the impurities, otherwise a film forms around the stained area. To avoid this, place a thick pad of white cotton or linen under the stained fabric. Then, using a gauze pad dipped in solvent, tap the stained area. Do not rub! After a few strokes, replace the swab with a clean one. Also change the pads frequently. Wetting the material around the stain with water also prevents the formation of the areola.
If you stain with substances that cause chemical reactions on the material, remove the stain remover carefully after removing the stain (by rinsing in water or neutralising with suitable reagents). Otherwise the material will be damaged either immediately or after some time.
Using a stain remover, remove any residue with a clean cloth and soft brush, always brushing with the hair.
