What Are the Care Requirements for La-Z-Boy Upholstery Fabrics?

The care requirements for La-Z-Boy upholstery fabrics vary depending on the type of upholstery fabric. Specific information for routine maintenance, cleaning and stain removal can be found on the Fabric & Leather Care page in the Product Info section of the Customer Care area on LaZBoy.com.

La-Z-Boy upholstery fabrics are divided into three categories: Code W, Code S and Code X. The code is located on the tag attached to the furniture.

For Code W, La-Z-Boy recommends regular maintenance by frequent vacuuming and brushing with a nonmetallic brush to remove dirt and grime and prevent soiling. Spot cleaning can be conducted with water-based shampoo or foam upholstery cleaner. Solvents, hot water extraction and steam cleaning should not be used on Code W fabric.

For Code S, La-Z-Boy recommends the same regular maintenance of frequent vacuuming and brushing with a nonmetallic brush. Water should not be used to clean Code S fabric. Spot cleaning can be conducted with a water-free dry solvent.

For Code X, La-Z-Boy recommends against using cleaning products of any type. Instead, user should only vacuum or brush lightly to remove soil.

Stains are divided into two categories: Water-based and oil-based. Water-based stains are generally cleaned with water and soap. Some oil-based stains can also be cleaned with water and soap, but heavier oil-based stains may require the use of a solvent compound.
