Furniture Care

To keep the fabric on your Sam Moore Furniture looking bright, new and inviting for as long as possible, follow the instructions below:

  • Periodically, lightly brush or vacuum the upholstery to remove soil particles and dust and prevent them from imbedding between fibers.
  • Turn and rotate cushions after vacuuming to prevent excessive wear and soil deposits.
  • Avoid placing newspaper on fabric. The ink will permanently stain and discolor the material.
  • Keep fabrics away from direct sunlight if possible.
  • Do not use acids, dyes, paints or nail polish near fabrics.
  • Do not cover fabrics with darker fabrics when having work done in the home, since dyes may rub off.
  • Liquid spills should be absorbed immediately. Blot with white absorbent cloth or paper towel.
  • Spills such as jelly or soft spills should be scooped up with a soft edge spoon. If the spill has dried up, scoop it gently and vacuum the rest.
  • Never throw your fabric in the washer or dryer unless the fabric says it is machine washable. Remove the pillow forms before washing.
  • To spot clean, always test an area of the fabric that is not seen first, such as under a chair/sofa skirt. Let it dry, and then proceed if the results are positive. Do not oversaturate an area with any cleaning solutions.
  • Do not rub strongly and try not to let a stain dry.
  • Professional cleaning will prevent the gradual buildup of dirt and grime, but discuss with the dry cleaner any fire retardant finishes that may not endure through some methods of cleaning.
