Caring for your new bed

Thank you for purchasing your new fabric bed frame from us. To ensure that your bed remains in excellent condition and continues to provide a restful night's sleep, please follow these care and maintenance tips:

General Care

  • Vacuum Regularly: Use an upholstery attachment to gently vacuum the fabric of your bed frame. This prevents dust from building up and keeps the fabric looking fresh. Vacuuming should be done weekly or more frequently if you have pets.

  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Position your bed frame away from direct sunlight, as UV rays can cause the fabric color to fade over time.

  • Keep Dry: Avoid moisture build-up on your fabric. If your bed frame gets wet, immediately blot the moisture with a dry, absorbent cloth and allow it to air dry fully.

  • Professional Cleaning: Consider having your fabric bed frame professionally cleaned once a year. This maintains the appearance and longevity of the fabric.

Stain Removal

  • Act Quickly: In the event of a spill, blot (do not rub) the spill immediately with a clean, dry cloth to absorb as much liquid as possible.

  • Use Appropriate Cleaners: Use cleaners specifically designed for upholstery fabric. Always test any cleaner on a small, inconspicuous area of the bed frame first to ensure it does not affect the fabric color or texture.

  • Follow Instructions: Always follow the product instructions on any cleaning solutions. Some fabrics may require water-based cleaners, while others might need solvent-based cleaners.

  • Dry Properly: After cleaning a stain, allow the area to air dry completely. Avoid using hair dryers or other heat sources to speed up the process, as this can cause fabric damage.

Avoiding Dye Transfer

  • Colourfastness Check: Before using any new bedding or fabric items (like pillowcases or throws), check that they are colourfast to avoid dye transfer. Wash new items separately before their first use.

  • Protective Covers: Consider using protective covers for your pillows and mattress that are designed to be colourfast and protect against dye transfer.

Rotating the Mattress

  • Regular Rotation: To distribute wear evenly, rotate your mattress every 3-6 months if it is double-sided. This helps maintain the bed frame and mattress in optimal condition.

Frame Maintenance

  • Check the Frame Regularly: Periodically check the bed frame’s joints and fixings to ensure everything is tight and secure. This prevents any structural damage from loose components.

By following these care instructions, you can help ensure that your fabric bed frame remains beautiful and functional for many years to come. If you have any questions about specific care requirements or encounter any issues, please do not hesitate to contact our store for assistance.
