How to Clean Upholstered Furniture From Incontinence or Any Stain

Posted by Janet Voigt on Fri, Oct 05, 2018 @ 12:28 PM


Worried about upholstery Clean-up? Start with Your Fabric and Furniture Choice.

  • From a harmless beverage spill to incontinence, upholstery clean-ups can be stressful.
  • Upholstered furniture groups tend to play center stage of a facility’s common area and visible stains can be a real distraction for staff, customers and clients.  While upholstery technology and design does not get a whole lot of attention, there are in fact many new advances for upholstery protection. 
  • Crypton© is a remarkable fabric technology that adds a fluid and dirt barrier.  Because Crypton© is applied in a submersion technique, the barrier is applied to the top and bottom of the material as well as within the fiber weave itself.  Unlike other stain barriers the Crypton© barrier is permanent when properly care for.  Crypton©  is also effective as a bacterial / microbial barrier making it ideal for health care or any environment where sanitation is a concern.  Typical clean-up requires only a dilute solution of laundry detergent and water.
  • Did you know that furniture design itself can also help with fluid clean-ups?  Furniture Concepts now offers pop-out and clean-out seats that encourage fluid to drain through to the floor avoiding pooling.  A mop and bucket take care of the majority of the clean-up.  The upholstery remains relatively fluid-free and only a minor fabric clean-up may be required.  The foam inside the cushion is typically not affected from most fluid spills so both the upholstery and core are protected.

  • A spectrum of other products are available.  Whatever your clients’ needs, there is a solution available to fit your needs.  A few extra dollars dedicated now to preventing fluid penetration and staining can add years of use to your furniture.

An Interior Designer’s Guide to Healthcare Furniture

Posted by Janet Voigt on Tue, Mar 06, 2018 @ 10:31 AM
Recently I was talking to an interior designer who took her first healthcare design job. This particular interior designer had a lot of residential experience but when I asked her about selecting contract-grade furniture, she was totally unaware that there was furniture designed for non-residential applications.
