Depending on the lounge you purchase (please see item description for full details), the covering will be 1 of the following
- Genuine aniline leather (all external areas)
- Genuine aniline leather on all rest and seating areas (including top of arm rest) and have substituted leather on the back, side and skirting areas of the lounge. These areas, will be either Vinyl or Pu (man made) leather and should be treated the exact same as genuine leather areas.
- Genuine By-Cast Leather
- If you are removing any protective wrapping do not use any sharp tools which could damage the leather or other upholstered covering.
- Conditioning your leather before using it will help protect against stains and help keep your leather soft and supple. We recommend reapplying leather conditioner every 4 weeks.
- If you move your lounge do not lift or drag it by the cushions which are sewn into the frame. The correct way to move it is by lifting the sofa, at each end, from the base.
- Please do not sit on the armrests and backrests. They are not designed for seating and could potentially damage the frame.
- Do not expose any part of the lounge to direct sunlight. Prolonged exposure to direct or intense sunlight may cause leather and fabric to fade as well as excessive drying and cracking.
- Avoid placing the lounge near heat sources as they can fade and damage the leather or fabric. In extreme climates you will need to moisturise the leather more often.
- For removing any spills use a damp cloth immediately as food oils can permanently bond with the leather and water based stains will leave a mark if allowed to soak in.
- Never use solvents, abrasives, shoe or saddlery care products. Only ever use industry recommended leather care products suitable for the type of leather. These are available to purchase from United House and most furniture outlets.
- We recommend vacuuming your sofa with an upholstery attachment and wiping over the leather with a clean cloth and leather soft cleaner weekly as dirt and grime can act as an abrasive on leather.
- Cushioning will soften over time, to reduce the impact of this, change the position in which you commonly sit so each seat wears evenly.
- Dirt and body moisture can discolour fabric. We recommend a simple vacuum of you fabric sofa every week. This will also remove grit that can wear away the fabric.
- For fabric lounges we recommend professional steam cleaning on an annual basis for a deep clean.
- Loose threads must be cut and not pulled.
