Fabric Care

At Home Furniture offers an extensive range of fabrics so we know that your final selection has taken much thought and consideration and we therefore want your fabric sofa to stay looking fabulous in your home.


By adopting the following care instructions you can be assured that you will be able to maintain the longevity of your fabric sofa.

  • Vacuum weekly to remove dust and dirt build up.
  • Spills should be removed straight away by blotting the stain with a soft dry cloth to remove excess from fabric - do not rub. Use warm soapy water on a damp (colour fast) sponge to remove the stain.
  • At Home Furniture recommends the use of All Natural Fabric Magic to remove all types of stains – chocolate, wine, blood, tea & coffee, cola, food grease, tomato, non-permanent markers and more. All Natural Fabric Magic can be purchased in store.
  • Avoid using any fabric cleaners that aren’t industry recommended as the chemicals may have adverse affects on your fabric sofa.
  • For tough stains that will just not budge we recommend the use of a professional upholstery cleaning service.
  • Rotate the seat and back cushions regularly for even wear.
  • Do not drag or push your sofa. Always lift to avoid breaking or scratching the legs of your sofa and to avoid harming your floor.
  • Do not sit on the arms or back of your sofa as they are not designed for sitting on and will put undue pressure on the frame.
  • Be careful of dye transfer. Avoid sitting on your sofa in new unwashed jeans, damp clothes etc. as they may stain the upholstery.
  • Be careful of sharp objects, buttons on jeans or pet claws as they may tear or pull the fabric.
  • Avoid contact with direct heat and sunlight as this will cause the fabric to fade.
