Regularly vacuuming with an upholstery attachment picks up dust and reduces the need for professional cleaning. Do not use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Brushing may permanently damage the nap or change the character of the fabric.
In case of spot cleaning, immediately soak up the stain with a soft absorbent cloth. The longer a stain is allowed to remain on the fabric, the more difficult it is to remove. Do not dry the stain completely or it may set. Do not over apply water or any liquid solution to fabric. Excessive wetting or heavy saturation may result in permanent damage to the material.
To remove water-based and oil-based stains, use a dry-cleaning solution that is exclusively for use on fabric materials that are dry-clean-only. First test the cleaning solution on a small, inconspicuous area. If there is no damage to the fabric or its dyes, gently apply the cleaner to the soiled area with a damp clean cloth or sponge.
Do not rub vigorously but work with light, quick strokes. Begin at the outside of the stain and work toward the center, being careful not to over-saturate the fabric. Several light applications are better than one heavy application. Rinse area thoroughly with a clean, damp cloth, avoiding heavy scrubbing, to remove cleaning solution residue.
Let the fabric dry thoroughly. If the stain resists cleaning, contact a professional cleaner.
