Taking Care of Your Recliner Chair

Posted on July 17, 2018


Recliner chairs help the elderly and people with mobility issues to assume sleeping, sitting and standing positions effortlessly at the touch of a button.

Made from either fabric or leather, rise and recliner chairs are a valuable mobility aid. You can carry out simple tasks independently. When you want to ensure your recliner chairs last for years, it’s important to maintain them in top form.

Here are some ways to take care of your recliner chairs.

Vacuum Your Fabric Rise and Recliner Chairs

Use the soft brush attachment in your vacuum cleaner for fabric recliners. Follow it up with a swift wipe using a baby wipe or micro-fibre cloth. Finally, use soapy water and a clean micro-fibre cloth to wipe the recliner clean. Allow it to air-dry. However, do take note that some fabrics such as chenille may need exclusive upholstery cleaning shampoo.

Buy Chairs with Exclusive Fabric Treatments

If you prefer fabric rise and recliner chairs, go for ones with special fabric treatments. This will help reduce the need for regular maintenance.

At Recliners and Beds, we have fabric recliner chairs treated with advanced Aquaclean technology. These chairs are very easy to clean. All you need is water to remove the most stubborn stains including ink, wine, chocolate and mud marks.

These recliner chairs also feature a protective coating that prevents accumulation of dust and dirt and keeps pet claws from damaging the chair fibres.

Avoid Water when Cleaning Leather Rise and Recliner Chairs

Avoid using water when it comes to leather rise and recliner chairs. Water will leave stains behind.

Steam cleaning is a highly effective method to clean your leather chairs without damaging them. Steam cleaning removes dirt and dust on the surface and gets rid of bad odours. Consider investing in a steam cleaning machine.

A saddle soap is also a great alternative. Saddle soap has mild soap, softening agents and preservatives. This soap not only cleans your leather recliner but also moisturises and protects it.

Prevent Wear and Tear

Some simple steps can extend the life of your leather and fabric rise and recliner chairs:

  • Keep the chair away from direct sunlight to prevent fading.
  • Use covers for the arms and cushions to prevent ugly stains.
  • Use an exhaust fan to expel cooking fumes in the kitchen. These fumes can settle on your chair and cause dirty stains.
  • Cigarette smoke too can settle on the chair fabric and cause bad smell and stains. Avoid smoking in the vicinity of the chair.

In Conclusion

Regular cleaning and maintenance are important to ensure your recliner chairs stay in top condition at all times.
