Care & Maintenace

Posted by stax Living on

  • Indoor Fabric

When cleaning the fabric upholstery on a daily basis, use a soft cloth to dust it off instead of using harsh vacuum cleaners or rug-beaters that may cause damage to the padding and upholstery. In case of stains, act swiftly and treat the surface with a white cloth that has been cleaned and dampened with lukewarm water. Ensure you begin treating the edges and gradually shift to the inner sections of the upholstery. If necessary, a specific cleansing detergent can be used, albeit not directly on the fabric and ensure drying occurs in open air. Avoid ironing or vaporizing. To prevent any damage during hand washing or dry cleaning, protect the Velcro of each cover with a Velcro proof tape. It's advised to follow the care instructions on the fabric label. Regarding soft dry cleaning, seek out a specialized dry-cleaner and inform them of the type of stain and spot present. It's important to note that after washing, you should not store the covers in sealed containers.


  • Leather

To maintain the leather's pristine condition on a daily basis, use a soft cotton cloth to wipe off dust. In case of spots, it is crucial to intervene immediately by treating the surface with clean lukewarm water-damped white cloth from the edges to the heart. It is important not to rub the surface too vigorously or use solvents or alcohol, which can permanently damage the leather's appearance. Oily spots require careful removal of the material from the surface using absorbent paper, without applying pressure to avoid spreading the oily substance. Then spot-clean using a clean, damp cloth with a little neutral soap. Coffee or drink spots require immediately blotting the liquid using a soft cloth or paper. Then carefully remove the stain using a slightly damp cloth and dry immediately with a dry cloth. Allow the leather to dry in open air, avoiding direct sunlight or a hairdryer. Never iron or vaporize the leather and, to maintain it correctly, use specific anti-greasy cleansing products at least twice a year, passing it on the entire surface.


  • Fur

It is highly advised against washing fur items at home or using common household cleaning tools, as they may cause irreversible damage to the fur. In order to get rid of stains, seek out a specialized dry cleaner who handles fur and request that they apply a gentle program when removing the stains. If a traditional dry cleaner handles the fur, the fur in certain areas may shrink and become hard, resulting in an unusable item that can't be restored to its original condition. Avoid the use of water, detergents, or dry foam products at all times.


  • Indoor Cushions

To maintain the good condition of cushions, it's important to clean and air them regularly. This can be done by shaking the material inside so that it distributes evenly. It's also recommended to switch the positions of the seat and back cushions, rotating the more frequently used ones with the less used ones. In the case of cushions with goose-down padding, it's necessary to periodically "shake them up" by gently beating them with your hands and leaving them out in the open air to prevent flattening and creases and keep the padding settled.


  • Corian

The product comes with a soft cloth, which should be used to remove any dust. For any stains left behind by oily substances or liquids, it's essential to use an absorbent cloth immediately and then wipe the entire surface with a cloth moistened with tepid water. Be careful not to scratch the surface while cleaning. To avoid causing any irreparable harm to the product's surface, you should abstain from using any products containing alcohol, acetone, ammonia, chlorine, solvents, abrasive agents, or furniture wax, as these can cause the product's surface to become opaque.


  • Marble

To clean the product, use a damp cloth to remove any dust. For stains caused by liquids or greasy substances, use an absorbing cloth to remove dirt immediately. Afterwards, wipe the entire surface with a damp cloth that has been soaked in lukewarm water, being careful not to scratch it. Do not use products containing alcohol, acetone, ammonia, chlorine, or solvents, abrasive products, or furniture polish, as these can permanently damage the product's surface, leaving it looking dull with marks. The marble, onyx, and stones used in our products are natural materials, and their characteristics remain unchanged throughout each working phase. The grain and shade of the material may differ, which should not be considered as defects but unique features that enhance the product's uniqueness. Although the tops have a stain-resistant treatment, it does not guarantee complete stain protection, so please handle them with care. Note that for the delicate marble elements with a matt polyester finish, do not place any objects directly on the surface.


  • Glass

To clean, use a damp cloth to remove dust from the surface. Clean the glass using either diluted alcohol or glass detergent and then dry with a soft cloth. Take care while cleaning to avoid surface scratches. It is advisable to avoid using acetone, ammonia, chlorine, solvents, abrasive products, and furniture wax.


  • Wood

To clean wooden surfaces, use a damp cloth and specific wood cleaning products, if needed. Be careful when doing this to avoid scratching the surface. Avoid exposing the wood and lacquer to direct sunlight, as it can alter their colour. Do not use products containing alcohol, acetone, ammonia, chlorine, solvents, any abrasive products, or wax for furniture.
