Care & Cleaning

LUNA TEXTILES FABRICS ARE DURABLE, COLORFAST, EASY TO CARE FOR, AND MEET OR EXCEED ALL ASSOCIATION FOR CONTRACT TEXTILES (ACT) PERFORMANCE STANDARDS.  WE RECOMMEND THE FOLLOWING CLEANING GUIDELINES FOR OUR FABRICS.

CLEANING CODE: S
S-USE SOLVENT CLEANER

  • Vacuum the fabric periodically using an upholstery brush attachment to remove accumulated dirt and dust.
  • Gently blot liquid spills with a clean sponge or cloth as soon as possible. Be careful not to push the liquid further into the fabric.  Vacuum away dry, solid materials.
  • Dye from apparel fabric that is not colorfast, such as denim, can rub off onto upholstery, a process called “reverse crocking”.  This type of permanent staining is due to the apparel, not the upholstery fabric.  Stain-resistant treatments on upholstery fabrics will not prevent reverse crocking.
  • Some cleaning methods may cause damage to underlying materials in walls, panels, or furniture.  Contact the manufacturer for recommendations and precautions prior to attempting any cleaning procedure.
  • Spot removal is recommended for small stains only.  For large stains and general soiling, clean the whole cover.

CLEANING CODE: W
WS-USE WATER-BASED CLEANER

  • Follow manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Use solvent cleaners sparingly in a well-ventilated area, away from sparks and open flames.
  • Test the cleaning agent on a hidden or inconspicuous area of the fabric first, to check for colorfastness.
  • Apply the cleaning agent with a clean, white cloth. Rub gently to remove the stain. Work from outside toward the center of the stain.  If the stain is small, dabbing may be sufficient.  Too much cleaning agent may spread the stain and damage material under the fabric. Turn the cloth frequently to avoid re-depositing the stain.
  • After cleaning, the fabric should be allowed to dry completely.  No heat should be used.

CLEANING CODE: WS
WS-USE WATER-BASED AND/OR SOLVENT BASED CLEANER

  • Test the cleaning agent on a hidden or inconspicuous area of the fabric first, to check for colorfastness.
  • Apply the cleaning agent with a clean, white cloth. Rub gently to remove the stain. Work from outside toward the center of the stain.  If the stain is small, dabbing may be sufficient.  Too much cleaning agent may spread the stain and damage material under the fabric. Turn the cloth frequently to avoid re-depositing the stain.
  • Wet vacuum machines should not be used as they can leave water rings or traces of shampoo that can affect the appearance and performance qualities of the fabric.
  • After cleaning, the fabric should be allowed to dry completely.  No heat should be used.
