The Six Best Ways to Protect Your Furniture
- DO NOT APPLY SCOTCHGUARD STAIN PROTECTOR
Scotchgard contains silicone, which not only yellows fabrics over a period of time, but it also can attract soil to the fabric. Scotch guard is, you can’t feel it on the fabric is chemically “sticky”, which attracts soil to the surface of the fabric and results in the necessity of having the upholstery cleaned more often. Ultra-Guard stain protection is a clear polymer that will not discolor or attract soil to your fabric.
- VACUUMING YOUR FABRIC PROTECTED FURNITURE
Vacuum the surface of your furniture that is coated with our fabric protector regularly, including the deck under the cushions, with the upholstery attachments of your vacuum cleaner B. That same layer of dust that is on your coffee table and gets dusted off each week is on your fabric treated sofa. It is unseen and builds up each week, gets ground in from sitting on it and along with the oil and moisture from your skin is the direct cause of soiling and aging your sofa. Fortunately, Ultra-Guard’s Fabric Protection treatment coats the fiber with and invisible layer of our stain protection and will keep the soil from attaching to the fiber.
- ULTRA GUARD’S SUN PROTECTION
Direct sunlight can cause the fabrics to fade. Care should be taken to limit the amount of direct sun on any piece of furniture. Our STAIN FREE stain protection formula also contains an ultra-violet inhibitor, but nothing will absolutely protect against direct sunlight, even metal furniture will oxidize and discolor. No other fabric protector will have our level of fabric protection from sunlight.
- LOOSE PILLOWS EVEN THOUGH HAVING HAD A FABRIC PROTECTION APPLIED NEED TO BE FLIPPED.
Loose cushions should be flipped and rotated frequently to minimize soiling and add to the longevity of your upholstery. When we treat the upholstery pieces with our STAIN FREE fabric protector, we actually treat the top, bottom and sides of the cushions so you will have the same fabric protection when you flip the cushions.
- SPILLS ON UPHOLSTERY THAT HAS HAD OUR FURNITURE PROTECTION FORMULA APPLIED
All spills should be cleaned immediately, start by blotting the spill using a clean, absorbent cloth. If there is a residue or a mark that does not “float above the surface of the fabric, it’s time to call ULTRA-GUARD to make use of your stain protection 5-Year Service Warranty. ULTRA-GUARD’S technicians are certified in the cleaning of fine designer fabrics.
- THE RIGHT CLEANING TECHNIQUE AND CLEANING CHEMICALS ARE ESSENTIAL EVEN FOR FABRIC THAT HAVE A FABRIC PROTECTOR APPLIED.
To successfully clean fabric, it is important to determine the type of fabric and the recommended cleaning code. The cleaning code for your upholstery can be found on the law tag attached to the furniture. Our technicians will always pretest an inconspicuous area of the upholstery before spot cleaning with the correct method and correct cleaning chemicals for the fabric. Silk is not cleaned like chenille and chenille is not cleaned like wool and wool is not cleaned like linen.
