Elevate Your Upholstery: A Guide To Fabric Treatments

When it comes to interior design and home décor, upholstery plays a crucial role in setting the tone and style of a space. Whether you’re revamping an old piece of furniture or selecting a fabric for a new one, the right fabric treatment can make all the difference. In this guide, we’ll explore various fabric treatments for upholstery, helping you understand how they can enhance the look, feel, and durability of your furniture.


Soil & Stain

One of the primary concerns with upholstery is keeping it clean and stain-free. Our soil & stain treatment creates a protective barrier on our upholstery fabric, making it resistant to spills and stains. This treatment not only prevents liquids from penetrating the fabric but also makes it easier to clean up spills before they leave a lasting mark. This is especially beneficial for high-traffic areas or homes with pets and children.


Flame Retardant

Safety is paramount in any home. Flame retardant treatments can be applied to upholstery fabrics to reduce their flammability. This is especially important for furniture in close proximity to fireplaces, candles, or other potential fire hazards. Flame retardant treatments can provide valuable peace of mind and enhance the safety of your home.


Crib 5

Crib 5 treatment is a critical and rigorous fire safety standard applied to upholstery fabrics. This treatment ensures that the fabric meets specific fire resistance requirements, making it suitable for use in commercial and public environments. Fabrics treated to Crib 5 standards have undergone extensive testing and are designed to minimise the risk of ignition and slow the spread of flames in the event of a fire. This level of fire resistance is essential, especially in commercial spaces, healthcare facilities, and public areas where safety regulations are stringent. Choosing upholstery fabrics with Crib 5 treatment not only provides peace of mind but also contributes to a safer and more secure environment for everyone.


Water Repellent

If you have outdoor furniture or items that are frequently exposed to the elements, waterproofing treatments are essential. These treatments create a barrier that repels water, preventing it from seeping into the fabric. Waterproofed upholstery is not only more durable but also easier to clean and maintain, ensuring your outdoor furniture looks its best season after season.


Choosing the right fabric treatment for your upholstery is a decision that can significantly impact the longevity, appearance, and functionality of your furniture. Whether you’re prioritising stain resistance, safety, comfort, or durability, there’s a fabric treatment to meet your needs. When investing in upholstery, don’t overlook the benefits of these treatments, as they can help you enjoy your furniture for years to come while maintaining its beauty and functionality.
