  • 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 FabricCrypton© 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 seatsEasy Clean-Out Furniture 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.
