Fabric

Or objects with components of Fabric

ABOUT

-Here’s how to keep your fabric lounge suite looking like the
day it came home from Our showroom
-Despite exercising the best of care, accidents do happen! Remember, tackle them as soon as you can after it’s happened –
fresh stains are easier to remove than old ones. Here’s a quick
rundown of how to deal with common fabric stains:


CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS

– Get to the stains quickly. As soon as a spill or stain occurs,
get to cleaning it immediately. Waiting too long before treating a stain – even a matter of a few minutes – can cause thestain to set, making it harder to get out.
-Use a dry brush to remove loose particles. Go over the entire
sofa with a stiff brush with natural bristles to help loosen stains
and bring dust and dirt to the surface.
-Vacuum. Before scrubbing and cleaning your fabric sofa, use
a hand-held vacuum to remove crumbs and any other loose
particles. This will make it easier to identify and focus on
troublesome stains when it comes time to cleaning

ABOUT
At Essops Home, we celebrate the unique character of each hide. For this reason, we don’t try to cover up or exclude parts of the story of each piece of leather. Wrinkles, scars, tick bite marks and brand marks are all typical of the highest quality, natural, full-grain leather, also known as aniline leather.
For this reason, the following may occur in leather products:
– Marks, tick bite scars, scratches, stretch marks and scuff marks are characteristics of full grain leather and are therefore not defects. Prominent brand

CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS:
Rotate seating positions for an even weight destribution which will prevent a variation in the appearance of the seats.
