Fabric Cleaning Codes
Fabric cleaning codes determine the best and least expensive methods of home cleaning for your furniture. Due to the various ways that furniture can be stained or damaged, there is no guarantee that the results will be completely successful. Use the suggested methods at your own discretion. Always pretest on a small area before proceeding.
To prevent overall soil from dust and grime, frequent vacuuming or light brushing is recommended. Use a professional cleaning service when an overall soiled condition has been reached.
