        For Leather Sofas:

        Soft microfiber cloths or sponges
        Leather conditioner

          Soft-bristle brush or upholstery brush
          Vacuum cleaner with upholstery attachment
          Distilled water
          Bucket
          Mild detergent (for stubborn stains)
          White vinegar (for deodorising)

            Step-by-Step Guide

            For Leather Sofas:

            Dust and Vacuum: Start by using the vacuum cleaner with the upholstery attachment to remove loose dirt and dust from your leather sofa.
            Prepare the Cleaner: Mix a small amount of mild leather cleaner with distilled water according to the product's instructions.
            Clean Gently: Dampen a soft microfiber cloth or sponge with the prepared solution and gently wipe the leather surface. Avoid saturating the leather.
            Rinse and Dry: Wipe the sofa with a clean, damp cloth to remove any remaining cleaner, then dry it thoroughly with another dry cloth.
            Condition: Apply a leather conditioner as directed by the manufacturer to keep the leather supple and moisturised.

             

            For Fabric Sofas:

            Dust and Vacuum: Begin by vacuuming your fabric sofa with the upholstery attachment to remove dirt and debris.
            Pre-treat Stains: If you have any stains, pre-treat them with a fabric upholstery cleaner, following the product's instructions.
            Clean the Fabric: Spray the fabric upholstery cleaner evenly over the sofa and use a soft-bristle brush or upholstery brush to gently scrub the fabric.
            Rinse and Dry: Wipe the sofa with a clean, damp cloth to remove any cleaner residue, then dry it thoroughly with another dry cloth.
            Stubborn Stains: For stubborn stains, mix a mild detergent with water, gently scrub the stain, and rinse with clean water. Always test on a hidden area first.

             

            Tips and Tricks

            Regular Maintenance: Vacuum your Tech Sofa regularly to prevent dust and dirt from settling into the fabric or leather.
            Blot, Don't Rub: When dealing with spills or stains, always blot the area with a clean cloth instead of rubbing to avoid spreading the stain.
            Rotate Cushions: To ensure even wear, rotate and flip your sofa cushions periodically.
            Sunlight: Avoid placing your sofa in direct sunlight to prevent fading of colours and drying out of leather.

             

              Common Cleaning Mistakes

              Using Harsh Chemicals: Avoid using harsh chemicals or bleach, as they can damage the fabric or leather.
              Over-wetting: Excess moisture can lead to mould and mildew growth, so avoid over-wetting the sofa during cleaning.
              Skipping the Test: Always test cleaning products on a hidden area of your sofa first to check for any adverse reactions.

                Cleaning Frequency

                General Cleaning: Clean your Tech Sofa every 2-3 months to maintain its appearance.
                Stains: Treat stains as soon as they occur to prevent them from setting in.

                  Cleaning Solutions

                  Leather Sofas: Use a mild leather cleaner and conditioner designed for your specific type of leather.
                  Fabric Sofas: Opt for a fabric upholstery cleaner that is compatible with your sofa's fabric type.

                    Cleaning Tools

                    Leather Sofas: Soft microfiber cloths or sponges.
                    Fabric Sofas: Soft-bristle brush or upholstery brush.

                      Stain Removal Techniques

                      Leather Sofas: Use a leather cleaner for small stains. For larger stains, consult a professional.
                      Fabric Sofas: Pre-treat stains with a fabric upholstery cleaner. Stubborn stains may require a mild detergent.

                        Deodorising

                        Leather Sofas: Leather naturally resists odours. If needed, use a leather-safe deodoriser.
                        Fabric Sofas: Mix white vinegar with water in a 1:1 ratio, spray it lightly over the fabric, and let it air dry to remove odours.

                           

                          By following these cleaning guidelines, you can ensure that your Tech Sofa remains in pristine condition, providing you with both comfort and style for years to come.
