Preserving Beauty And Performance

Welcome to our Sunbrella/D’Decor Fabric Cleaning Guide, where we share essential tips to maintain the beauty and longevity of your cushions. Sunbrella and D’Decor fabrics are known for their durability and resistance to the elements, making them ideal choices for both indoor and outdoor use. Follow these simple steps to keep your cushions looking fresh and vibrant.

General Cleaning

Regular Maintenance: Brush off loose dirt and debris regularly to prevent them from settling into the fabric. 

Spot Cleaning: For small spills and stains, promptly blot (do not rub) the area with a clean, soft cloth or sponge. 

Use a solution of mild soap and water (1 tablespoon of soap per gallon of water) for stubborn stains.

Rinse thoroughly to remove soap residue.

Deep Cleaning

Machine Washing: For removable cushion covers, machine wash in cold water with a mild detergent. Avoid bleach and harsh chemicals, as they may compromise the fabric’s integrity. 

Air-Drying: After washing, allow the covers to air dry completely. Do not use a machine dryer.

Stain Removal

Mildew: Sunbrella fabrics are resistant to mildew, but in damp environments, it’s advisable to clean promptly. Create a solution of 1 cup of bleach to 1 gallon of water. Apply the solution to the affected area and allow it to soak for 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with water. 

Oil-Based Stains: Promptly blot oil-based stains with a clean, dry cloth. Apply a solution of mild soap and water, then rinse thoroughly.

Special Considerations

D’Decor Fabrics: D’Decor fabrics are designed for outdoor use and are resistant to fading and mildew. Regular cleaning with a soft brush and mild soap solution is recommended for D’Decor fabrics. 

Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Do not use harsh chemicals, bleach, or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the fabric and affect its performance.

Storage Tips

Dry Cushions Before Storage: Ensure that cushions are completely dry before storing to prevent mold and mildew growth.

Store in a Cool, Dry Place: Store cushions in a cool, dry place when not in use. Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.

Professional Cleaning

Seek Professional Assistance: If your cushions require deep cleaning or stain removal beyond your expertise, consider consulting professional fabric cleaners.

Note: Always refer to the specific care instructions provided by the fabric manufacturer for your cushions.

Following these cleaning guidelines will help you preserve the beauty and performance of your Sunbrella/D’Decor fabric cushions, ensuring they remain a comfortable and stylish addition to your space for years to come.
