sofa care

Before cleaning, whatever the stain is, it is necessary to:
• take immediate action.

• Remove most of the dirt with a spoon or similar.

• Reduce the stain by working from the edge towards the center to avoid halos.

• Immediately blot the stain with a white cloth.

• Before each treatment, it is advisable to check for any changes in appearance and color that the fabric may undergo, trying to treat a not very visible area. If in doubt about the stain removal technique, we recommend you to contact a specialized personnel. After the stain is removed, the treated area may appear with a different color than the untreated one. It is therefore recommended to do a deeply general cleaning.

• Once the stain has been identified, take action by following the instructions given for its coating.

• Let it dry. Do not sit on the wet side.

ATTENTION: Cleaning the upholstery is always a delicate operation. The good result often depends on the care taken in its execution, on the nature and quantity of dirt and above all on the timeliness of the intervention.

THE COMPANY DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY DAMAGE TO THE COVERING (SHRINKING, DISCOLORING, WEAKING, ETC.) CAUSED BY INCORRECT MAINTENANCE AND / OR WASHING.

frame

Spruce and / or beech boards. Chipboard, plywood and various wood derivatives panels assembled with vinyl glue and metal staples.

Warnings:

The frame of your sofa will always remain intact and perfect over time, as long as you respect the following precautions:

• Do not jump on the sofa or throw yourself violently on top of it.

• Do not sit on the armrests and / or backrests.

• Do not scrape the sofa on rough and smooth surfaces, lift it and do not push it.

• Following the above will prevent possible sagging of the seams.

padding

Based on the shape and model, we use different types of padding:

• expanded polyurethanes of various densities.

• polyester fiber flakes.

Use and maintenance: the padding does not require any specific maintenance other than normal sofa care. In particular, if you buy sofas with fiber flakes padding, once in your home, you will need to gently shape them to allow them to resume the initial appearance lost during transport.

Warnings:

The polyurethane foam paddings, in the first 3 months of life, tend to soften and then stabilize permanently. This process is absolutely normal; in fact, when a person sits down for the first few times, he applies pressure on the seat which creates the breakage of the microcells of which the polyurethane is made. This break, absolutely physiological for this material, involves a slight softening.

Again for the reason mentioned above, it is absolutely normal that when purchasing the sofa, the softness of a seat / back padded with a polyurethane foam is different from the other placed next to it depending on the specific use. This feature will disappear after the first months of correct use.

Following the aforementioned physiological settling of the padding, slight creases may form on the upholstery. These folds are to be considered absolutely normal and depend on the settlement that the skin also undergoes during the first months of use.

leather

Noble, natural and resistant material that acquires value over time. Thanks to its transpiration and elasticity properties, it offers ideal comfort in both hot and cold periods.

Each layer of skin has its own story that can be read through the natural signs impressed on the surface, such as scars, wrinkles, insect bites, barbed wire wounds, stretch marks, veins, difference in grain and color. These represent something natural, a quality that never makes a living room identical to another.

Use and maintenance: leather lounges, thanks to the quality of the material, do not need particular maintenance, just use traditional methods, such as dusting with a soft cloth. Make sure the living room is at least 30 cm from the radiator or other heat sources. Do not expose the living room to direct sunlight.

Dirt cleaning: use lukewarm water with the addition of neutral soap, do not use too soft soap, detergent or detergent. With a wet and wrung soft cloth, spread on the surface of the leather. Be very careful not to rub, but wipe the cloth very lightly. It is very important to quickly moisten the entire surface.

Skin hydration: dehydration is a natural phenomenon for the skin. It is therefore good, regardless of cleaning, to moisten your coating with moisturizing milk whenever you notice a certain loss of elasticity and in any case at least once a year. Use moisturizing milk directly on the surface and spread it out with a soft cloth. Treat the surface until the substance used is completely absorbed. Cleaning kits are available at Nicolaquinto® stores.

REMOVAL OF STAINS ON THE SKIN.

• Fat and oily materials: initially try to remove the stain with a perfectly dry cloth, then try with a mild detergent solution such as shampoo for hair.

• Beer, coffee: initially clean with warm water, rubbing the entire surface of the skin. If this is not enough, repeat the operation with a soapy solution.

• Chewing gum: cool the part with ice cubes placed in a cellophane bag, then carefully remove. If any traces remain, try a soft eraser.

• Ballpoint pen: remove it with an eraser type eraser bread, taking care to rub very lightly so as not to affect the surface of the color.

• Body fat: on the armrests, headrests or cushions, they can be removed with a soapy solution or with a soft eraser. Never use liquids containing alcohol or cleaning chemicals.
