Advice for consumers

Following the correct aftercare instructions will help you make the most of your furniture, aiding its longevity, and ensuring it looks it best.

Always keep and follow aftercare instructions provided by your retailer or supplier. If you no longer have these you may be able to find a copy online, or alternatively contact your retailer and ask whether they can resend to you. On upholstery products you may find aftercare labels ‘hidden’ under the cushions or on the frame.

The Furniture Industry Research Association have produced a number of furniture buying guides, with sections on aftercare which you may find of use.
