Leather Care

At IMG, we believe that no man-made material can compare with the natural beauty of genuine leather. It may be more expensive than fabric upholstery, but with one of our premium quality leathers, you will find that it provides a better investment over time.

You deserve to have a chair that looks and feels fantastic, and a leather covering will provide you with the luxurious finish you have been yearning for.

Leather has an average lifespan four times longer than that of fabric, making it a more durable and long lasting material. We recognize that in this busy world of active lifestyles, you require a furniture cover that can meet the demands of daily use, while looking beautiful for years to come. The appearance of finer leathers, such as Prime, Trend and Elite, are characterized by the individual animal’s history. Only specially selected hides are suitable for quality furniture upholstery, depending upon the level of environmental impacts such as insect bites and scars.

Any irregularities you may see are purely the mark of genuine, natural leather- nature’s way of letting you know that there is nothing false about this material.

Fabric Care

We like to think that you and your furniture will enjoy a harmonious friendship with one another, and that since your chair supports and takes care of you that you will take the time to care for it too. Using our informative product care and maintenance advice provided, taking care of your furniture has never been easier. Simply follow the instructions provided, and we will take care of the rest.

We recommend cleaning your furniture twice a year with a gentle fabric cleaner and applying a protector. You should also brush, dust or vacuum your furniture once a week to reduce wear, to help keep your furniture in the best possible condition.

 

To protect your furniture from color changes, avoid excessive exposure to sunlight, or extreme warm/cold temperature conditions. As with any piece of furniture, you may notice a loose thread at times- simply remove carefully using scissors and tuck the exposed end back into the fabric. Fabric cover pilling can also occur occasionally and should not be considered as a fault.

Fiber pills can be removed using a battery-operated pilling tool. You must take care to prevent sharp objects such as rings, buckles and pets claws from coming into contact with your furniture which could cause surface damage. Rotate reversible cushions regularly to allow even wear distribution across both sides of the cushion, and allow shape-hold maintenance.

Directions to tackle stains and dirt

 

Stains- You fear them.

 

They threaten the beautiful appearance of your furniture, and the chore that is removing them makes you feel exhausted. With your IMG product, we provide you with all you need to know to tackle dirt and stains, making the cleaning process less of a chore. Never again fear stains or dirt with our practical, handy tips to guide you through.

 

We always recommend addressing all stains and dirt immediately, using a special spot cleaner or fabric cleaner in order to remove marks which could visually impact your furniture. Our handy tips below will help you to approach stain removal easily and efficiently, and restore your IMG furniture to its former look of perfection:

  • Control- To reduce the stain, you should carefully work outwards from the edge of the stain towards the center, as this will help you to avoid spreading the stain further.
  • Prepare- Prepare to remove stains by first removing most surface dirt using a knife or a spoon, and blot immediately with a clean white cloth. Remember to avoid rubbing the micro fibers, especially when they are wet. For wet stains, absorb as much of the liquid as possible using paper towels or a soft cloth before starting the cleaning process- this will make your job much easier.
  • Complete The Clean- Brush with a soft brush when the fabric is dry. Water-soluble stains can be removed by applying a lukewarm, water-soaked, non-abrasive cloth with a very mild soap. If using a solvent, never apply directly to the stained part, but on a clean cloth. After applying the stain remover, remove with a clean, dry cloth, and brush gently in the opposite direction to pile lay. Leave to dry and do not lean or sit on the damp part. When dry, use a vacuum cleaner with the soft brush to restore pile.

IMPORTANT: If spills or stains are excessive, we advise contacting your retailer or professional upholstery cleaner, who will be able to provide specialist advice. If you choose to use a specialized fabric cleaner, it is essential to pre-test any of these cleaning methods on an inconspicuous area to ensure that any cleaning agents or upholstery dyes are compatible for using on your furniture.

Smart Fabric 

SmartFabric technology combines a performance fiber with a performance finish to give our fabrics inherent durability and longevity.

This innovative fabric technology makes cleaning even easier. With SmartFabric technology spills form a bead, sitting on top of the fabric until they are gently blotted with a cloth for easy, efficient cleanup. Eliminate the stress of spillages with IMG’s SmartFabrics.
