Textile Fabrics are materials based on natural fiber yarns (silk, cotton, wool and linen) or artificial and synthetic fibers (viscose, polyester, acrylic, elastane, polyamide, nylon, polypropylene).
When purchasing your Century, always pay attention to the labels on the fabric displays. There, you will find detailed information about the fabric that you liked the most. Check them out:
Natural fibers require greater care to ensure the durability of the fabric. This material tends to wrinkle and stretch more easily, as well as being easier to unravel. Natural fibers can also suffer slight fading, which can be more severe if you leave your product exposed to direct artificial light or sunlight.
Synthetic fibers have high strength, good color retention (fade less easily) and are easier to clean. Soap and water is usually enough. In addition, these fabrics hardly wrinkle and hardly stretch.
High performance fabrics are treated to be more resistant to specific situations in our daily lives. Meet them!
Pet Friendly fabric options are more scratch resistant than common fabrics, specifically cat and dog nails. It is important to note that, although resistance is significantly better compared to other fabrics, the Pet Friendly seal does not certify absolute resistance. Very sharp nails and constant scratches in a specific area of the upholstery can still cause the fibers to break.
Liquid Repellent fabrics are produced with high quality Gloss yarns, providing a cool, soft and smooth touch. When the liquid comes into contact with the fabric, it takes time to be absorbed by it, giving more time so that, in the event of an accident, you can clean the product.
Clean-easy fabrics are composed of threads wrapped in silicone, giving the fabric greater resistance to stains from food, drinks and even pen scratches.
Fabric products need to be kept in places protected from the weather, avoiding exposure to intense and/or direct sunlight or artificial light as much as possible. Ultraviolet rays irreversibly alter and degrade fabric colors;
Never use abrasive products on your upholstery (vacuum cleaner or brushes with inappropriate bristles). They can cause damage such as wear and/or breakage of the fabric wefts;
Do not use chemicals on fabrics;
Avoid contact with water and liquids in general as much as possible.
Remove dust with a vacuum cleaner with soft bristles and an appropriate nozzle (brush model), use a soft cloth slightly dampened and neutral soap. If in doubt, consult the instructions on the composition label that came with your product or fabric sample.
When necessary, hire a specialized company
Leatherettes are synthetic, soft and resistant materials that simulate natural leather. It is the ideal coating for those looking for a good cost-benefit ratio, versatility, practicality of use and durability. This material has elements such as PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and 100% polyester base in its composition, which guarantee a longer useful life for the fabric.
As it is an industrialized material, it complies with the parameters of the manufacturing standards in which any surface irregularities caused in the upholstery process resulting from the characteristics of the material itself are tolerable. It is also important to point out the possible variation in the color tone of this type of material from one manufacturing batch to another.
The courinos do not absorb dust, thus dispensing with products for hydration and conservation. For this material, we advise:
Protect from bad weather and humidity, intense heat, direct sunlight and artificial light. This exposure compromises the quality and durability of the material, causing color change, wrinkles, drying, cracking, permanent weakening and film crumbling.
In cases of material in light tones, avoid contact with colored fabrics, as they can cause stains.
Use a dry, soft cloth.
Do not use brushes, sponges, steel wool or any abrasive material for cleaning.
For daily cleaning, give preference to the use of a white, soft and dry cloth. If you need to use a damp cloth, remove the excess with a dry cloth immediately after cleaning.
In case of spilled liquids, use a soft cloth, preferably white and slightly dampened in a solution made with water and neutral detergent. Make light and longitudinal movements, never circular. After cleaning, dry the area with a cloth, removing as much excess water as possible.
Never use pressure or steam machines to clean this material.
Leathers are materials made from animal skin. In this case, it is important to point out that no skin is the same as another, and may have surface imperfections such as stains, wrinkles, scars and irregularities. These characteristics are not defects and, in fact, serve to confirm the genuineness of the material. Leathers with a waxed finish have a more sensitive surface and, therefore, are more easily subject to marks and scratches in everyday use.
In addition, it is important to note that the material may suffer increased flexibility or expansion in areas of greater contact, such as seats and backrests.
Keep your product protected from bad weather, humidity, exposure to direct sunlight or artificial light, as well as spillage of liquids of any kind and chemicals in general.
Leather hydration can be done with specific products found in specialized stores, always maintaining the softness and durability of the material.
Use a soft, dry cloth, if necessary a deeper cleaning, use a cloth slightly dampened with a solution made with water and neutral detergent, pass the cloth with the solution and then a dry cloth to make sure that all excess Water.
