kk-happy-pic.pngGeneral Care for Fabrics

Please note: It is impossible to provide cleaning instructions for all fabrics as the wide range of fabrics available my require slightly different cleaning solutions or procedures, however, following the guidelines below should ensure your bag gets the attention it requires;

- Overall professional cleaning is recommended annually
- Protect from direct sunlight
- Rotate regularly
- Using low suction, vacuum fabric regularly (weekly is recommended)
- To avoid scorching and moisture build up, avoid contact with external wall and radiators/ heaters
- Avoid bringing sharp objects into contact with the fabric as this can result in snagging or tearing of the fabric

Colour Fastness and Fading

Important to remember no fabric is 100% colourfast. If precautions are not taken fading may occur. Low winter sun can do the most damage to fabrics, as well as fabrics located in a northerly faced location or fabrics constantly exposed to the sun. Constant and direct sun exposure will result in the break down of the fabric fibres, which results in the fabric becoming brittle and the affected area may break when cleaned. Dyed fabrics will be susceptible to light fading.

Shrinkage
All fabrics are prone to shrinkage, allowances for this have been considered in the design process of your King Kahuna Product.

Pilling
Can occur as a result of normal daily wear. Should not be considered as a fabric fault. Occurs when the fabric surface is rubbed, a single or group of loose fibres on this surface twists upon itself, forming tiny balls known as pills. Foreign fibres or specks of dirt are normally the cause. Specific clothing types (fleece tracksuits etc) can transfer pills to fabric. Climatic conditions and environment can also result in pilling. Pills can be removed with a battery operated pilling machine. De-pilling does not affect fabric in anyway other than removing the loose surface fibres.

Yellowing and Oxidation
Light or white fabrics are more susceptible to yellowing. Yellow/brown stains may occur on fabrics as a result of fumes and atmosphere from a room where tobacco is smoked. When sulphur compounds (resulting from combustion, open and gas flames, auto exhausts, chimneys, stoves) mix with humidity and oxygen, a mild sulphuric acid is produced.  Deterioration and discoloration occur when this sulphuric acid is absorbed by or settles onto the fabric.

Spot Cleaning Products
We recommend that spot cleaning products be purchased from furniture retail stores or professional upholstery cleaning technician.
