All fabrics in the Flexsteel line are classified for cleanability according to the American Home Furnishings Alliance (AHFA) cleanability code. We ship all our furniture with the corresponding cleanability code on the fabric page.
All fabric types should be vacuumed and brushed frequently to remove dust. When possible, we recommend that your upholstered furniture be cleaned by experienced professional cleaners due to the highly toxic ingredients in some cleaning compounds.
Specific cleaning guidelines for each type of fabric code are listed below:
W – Clean with water-based cleaning agents or water-based foam cleaning agents.
S – Clean with pure solvents (petroleum distillate-based products may be used).
Water-based or detergent-based cleaners may cause excessive shrinking. Water
stains may become permanent and may be unable to remove with solvent cleaning
W/S – Clean with water-based cleaning agents, foam, or pure solvents (petroleum
distillate-based products may be used).
X – Clean only by vacuuming or light brushing to prevent accumulation of dust.
Water-based foam or solvent-based cleaning agents of any kind may cause
excessive shrinking or fading.
