CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR SYNTHETIC LEATHER
TIPS FOR CARE
Synthetic leather is generally well-suited for frequently used rooms. Its care is not complex – HOWEVER, it is important to know a few rules so that it lasts as long as possible. Here, you will find a few tips and suggestions for the care and cleaning of synthetic leather which should be strictly observed.
The “new normal” demands that many surfaces be disinfected regularly. Not all materials can withstand this without rapid and visible wear and tear.
Our advice: Be very careful when using disinfectants on our fabrics and synthetic leathers. Depending on their composition, these substances can damage materials and surfaces.
If you nevertheless want to disinfect fabrics or synthetic leather surfaces, we recommend that you get a cleaning professional to sign off on the product you intend to use. Use sanitising agents or disinfectants only if they are guaranteed to be safe for use on textiles!
After just one incorrect treatment, synthetic leather can look like this.
Therefore, please be sure to observe the aforementioned care instructions with regard to both the products and the manner of application.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept complaints that are due to incorrect care.
- Always remove any contamination as quickly as possible. This makes it easy to avoid residues. Treat the surface regularly with a damp cloth.
- In the event of heavy contamination, clean the synthetic leather with a cloth and very strongly diluted soap solution (curd soap dissolved in lukewarm water).
- Chemical cleaning agents containing solvents such as alcohol and benzine, shoe polish, other polishing agents, synthetic waxes, solvents or alkaline cleaners (with a PH value > 7) are entirely prohibited! These agents remove the softener from the synthetic leather, leaving it brittle.
Important! Even a single application can lead to the destruction of the material.
- Never clean synthetic leather with care products for genuine leather: The fats and oils contained in them also accelerate the “softener migration” in the synthetic PVC leather, which in turn causes it to become brittle more quickly.
- Dry and polish the leather with a dry, soft cloth.
- Always clean from the edge towards the centre and never rub hard (danger of destroying the surface).
- Always test all cleaning agents in a concealed spot.
- Avoid soaking the leather, any liquid should be removed immediately.
Protect the leather from direct sunlight, extreme heat and sharp objects.
