Fabric Care

Five year protection programme for your furniture

All our furniture is designed to a very high standard and you can be assured of quality and durability. However, accidents do happen which is why we offer Staingard Plus. It is a protection programme specifically designed to ensure that for 5 years the appearance of your furniture is not spoiled by events such as accidental household spills and other incidents like rips, tears or burns, enabling you to continue to enjoy your furniture to the full.

The Staingard Plus Promise

In the case of a stain or accidental damage, if you can't remedy the problem yourself, one of Staingard's national team of professional repair technicians will visit your home and resolve the problem for you.

If that does not solve the problem, don't worry, Staingard will replace the damaged or stained part of your furniture.

Regular cleaning and vacuuming combined with the rotation and reversal of cushions will help to maintain the overall appearance and performance of your furniture. In the event of a spill, blot with a clean dry cloth. Avoid the use of silicone polishes, detergents and abrasive cleaners as these may damage your furniture. We recommend that upholstered furniture should be professionally cleaned every 12 to 18 months.

Stains Covered

Making a claim

Staingard will then offer you a mutually convenient appointment for one of their experienced specialists to call and rectify your problem. Where the accident is likely to result in a stain please act immediately. Remove any solid matter. Soak up any moisture using a clean white cloth or absorbent tissue. Do not rub or use household cleaners or abrasives. Stains can be limited at this point using the blot and dabbing action.
