All Tetrad leathers include a light surface finish to help resist stains and scratches.
Please bear in mind that all leather requires some maintenance, regular dusting - light scratches and scuffs can be removed by gently buffing with a soft cloth or chamois. It is important to rub very gently, to avoid colour change.
NOTE Saddle soap, cleaning solvents, furniture polish, oils, waxes, abrasive cleaners, general stain removers and any silicone or ammonia based products should never be used. While scratch removal cream can be very effective, always check that they are suitable for your particular leather before use.
Sunlight is a natural bleaching agent that causes leather and fabrics to fade. Excessive heat will draw out the moisture naturally present in leather and may lead to deterioration in its performance. Never place aniline dyed leather furniture in direct sunlight as this will cause it to fade, dry out and crack.
We recommend that you vacuum your Tetrad furniture occasionally, using a soft brush attachment. If you have feather seat interiors - brush the cover with a soft brush, as there is a risk that a vacuum could pull the feathers into the cushion fabric.
Avoid leaving furniture in direct sunlight, as this can cause fabrics and leather to fade in a short period of time. Prolonged exposure to sunlight (such as a conservatory) can also cause certain fibre types to break down and become weak, take care to protect the upholstery and to avoid damage. Certain fabrics (i.e Harris Tweed) with typical long woven stitches are vulnerable to snagging by sharp objects, such as buckles, studs, rings, children’s toys and even pets.
Consideration of weight placed on your furniture and uneven distribution of weight can result in excess load being applied to the frames and spring units. Over time, this can change how the furniture feels to sit on.
We recommend the following general care instructions to ensure that your furniture continues to look best.
To keep your new sofa or chair looking good we advise that you delicately brush/vacuum your upholstery once a week. If you allow dust and dirt to accumulate the colours will dull and wear will be accelerated.
Wherever possible minimise the contact with pets and your furniture as pet hairs can entangle themselves within the fabric.
Fabric seat cushions which are covered on both faces should be turned regularly to maximise the life of the fabric.
Fibre, feather and down seat cushions should be shaken and plumped every day.
Scatter Cushions: All scatter cushions should be plumped and turned (where possible) on a regular basis. Care should be taken with chenille scatters to avoid snagging, for example, when wearing jewellery or items with studs and zips due to the delicate nature of the chenille fabric.
