   Product care
 
Can I wash my futon cover?

Many of our futon covers are machine washable at 30 degrees. However there are some exceptions to this, such as our Day bed covers. Please note that mattress casings cannot be removed for cleaning and the zips are present for manufacturing purposes only. If you have any doubts as to whether your cover can be washed please get in touch.

How can I clean my Sleepover futon?

As the casing of these mattresses cannot be removed we recommend that they be either surface cleaned or specialist dry cleaned. Please consult your local dry cleaner for the availability of this service. We recommend using a mattress protector, sheets or sleeping bag with your sleepover futon to reduce the frequency with which this will be necessary.

How do I care for my Tatami Mats?

When new your Tatami mats will need to be aired for approximately 48 hours to ensure that they are fully aired prior to use. It is then important to air the mats periodically during use. This can be done by removing the mattress for a period of time and ensuring the room is well ventilated.

Do I need to air my mattress?

Yes. All mattresses need to be aired regularly in order to get the best comfort and longevity. This can be done by simply folding back any bedding from your mattress during the day, ideally in a well ventilated room.

How do I care for the oiled oak finish?

In order to maintain the best finish of any of our oiled oak furniture, it is advisable to oil the surface occasionally. This can be some using boiled linseed oil. Alternatively, you may want to consider our Wood Regenerator. This oil both effectively cleans and cares for any oiled oak finish.

How do I get the best performance from sofa bed/bed frame?

It is important to follow the assembly instructions during the initial assembly including fully tightening all fittings. We strongly recommend that the fittings are then checked and tightened periodically throughout their life to ensure the best possible performance from your sofa bed/bed frame.
