Leather Care

Top Grain Leather
• Refer to your owner’s material to determine the cleaning code for your new furniture.

• We recommend you use a leather-upholstery-specific cleaner on your leather furniture. You can find leather cleaning products in most home goods stores and grocery stores.

• After cleaning your leather furniture, it’s recommended that you apply leather conditioner to keep it looking soft and like new.

• It is recommended to clean and condition leather four times a year, more often in homes with pets and high-use rooms.

• Never use any harsh cleaners on your leather.

• Reminder- Leather surfaces can stretch over time, resulting in a relaxed appearance on seat cushions and the backs of seating surfaces. This is natural and should be expected.

• Leather is not stain-proof. Quickly blotting spills from leather surfaces helps prevent stains from setting.

• As leather is a natural product, differences in color, texture and unique characteristics are to be expected.


Wood Furniture

• Refer to your owner’s material to determine the cleaning information for your new furniture.

• Clean spills immediately with a soft, slightly damp cloth.

• Bob’s Wood furniture may be washed with a mild soap intended for that purpose or a wood furniture cleaning product available in most grocery stores. Following the directions on the product, use a soft cloth and wipe with the grain.

• A furniture polish may be applied if a little more shine is desired.


Upholstery and fabrics

• Refer to your owner’s material to determine the cleaning code for your new furniture.

• Vacuum your upholstered furniture regularly and consistently.

• Rotate your cushions once a month (if possible) to ensure even wear.

• Using the cleaning codes, determine if you need to have your furniture cleaned by a professional.

• Clean spills immediately. If you haven’t purchased your new furniture yet, we highly recommend our Goof Proof Plus Protection Plan. It protects against your investment for 5 full years!


Mattresses

• Rotate your mattress on a regular basis. Monthly is the recommended amount.

• Foundations need to be rotated as well.

• Avoid using the mattress handles to support the full weight of the mattress. Handles are for positioning the mattress over the foundation.

• Foundations are made to work with your mattress to provide a comfortable sleep environment. When you need a new mattress (at least every 10 years) you need a new foundation. Bob’s recommends replacing the set to keep warranties intact.

• Vacuum your mattress and foundation for general maintenance.

• We strongly recommend using a mattress protector to protect your mattress from soiling and stains. Many manufacturers will void a mattress warranty due to staining. Ask about our Goof Proof bed protectors.


Stone and Marble

• Dust your marble table top regularly with a damp cleaning cloth. Moisten the cloth under hot tap water, wring the cloth out, and wipe over the marble.

• Spray a stone soap onto the marble and wipe with a damp cloth when dusting alone does not remove all buildup.

• Dry table tops with a clean cloth to remove moisture.

• Place drinks on coasters, plates on place mats, and hot dishes on pot holders to prevent damage to the marble or granite table top.
