Cleanability Code for Household Fabrics


Upholstered furniture may come with the manufacturer's recommended method of cleaning. The American Furniture Manufacturers cleanability code may either be permanently attached to the upholstered piece or a part of the hang tag. Upholstery is not covered under the Federal Trade Commission's Care Label Rule. Labeling of furniture is strictly voluntary. The following cleanability codes were designated by fabric manufacturers. Caution: Never remove cushion covers for separate cleaning or washing. Any tumble cleaning method can destroy the back, shrink or otherwise damage upholstery fabric.

W Clean soiled areas only with the foam from a water-based cleaning agent, like a mild detergent or upholstery shampoo product. Apply foam in a circular motion. Vacuum when dry.

X Clean this fabric only by vacuuming or light brushing to prevent dust and grime from accumulating. Water-based foam or cleaning agents of any kind may cause excessive shrinking, fading or possible distortion.

S Have this treated by a professional furniture cleaning service only. Use of water-based or detergent-based cleaners may cause excessive shrinking. Water stains may become permanent. To prevent overall soiling, frequent vacuuming or light brushing is recommended to remove dust and grime.

W-S Clean soiled areas with a mild solvent or a water-based cleaning agent. Avoid any product that contains carbon tetrachloride. You may also use an upholstery shampoo product or the foam from a mild detergent. With either method, pretest a small area before proceeding. Use a professional furniture cleaner when an overall soiled condition is reached.
