Recently, I was called by a client in Brisbane to clean her fabric lounge suite.
Upon my arrival, she told me that each time she spilled even a little amount of water, she had to get a towel immediately and dash into the bathroom to grab her hair dryer. She even educated her little child to do likewise.
This puzzled me until I went into her lounge to see for myself.
There was this beautiful cream fabric sofa and single chairs with small yellow circles splashed all over the fabric. It was a very expensive suite purchased from an exclusive furniture store in Brisbane.
As I continued to study the fabric on the sofa, I realised why my wonderful customer was having this perpetual problem even though there was no fabric care instructions anywhere on this sofa. It was made from a linen fabric that could only be dry cleaned. The moment a water-based liquid came into contact with it, these yellow water marks appeared as it dried.
The reason I am writing this is to be completely aware of what you are purchasing. The lounge looks really gorgeous in the showroom but do some research about the fabric. Seats get dirty simply by collecting dust, sitting on them or if you have children or pets - the inevitable will occur, no matter how organised and disciplined you are!
Don't just believe everything the sales assistant tells you. Ask for the fabric care instructions. Do your research as you don't want to have a lounge sofa that can only be cleaned using toxic dry cleaning solvents.
If you are unsure what fabric is on your lounge suite, look for the attached care label. If that doesn't exist, call your retailer and ask them.
