Care for your furniture fabric and leather for long lasting beauty

Quality Care

Quality Care


Caring for your fabric or leather is simple. All you need to do is remember to rotate and plump seat and back cushions monthly—this will extend the life of your cushions—and maintain regular dusting and cleaning using a vacuum. When you need an overall cleaning, you should use a professional cleaner. If you need recommendations for professional cleaners, please contact our customer service department. We will recommend professionals that we use and trust.* Also, please note that a manufacturer’s cleaning recommendations vary by fabric type. Please check with your Sheffield interior designer when you purchase your furniture to find out each item’s specific cleaning needs.


CODE W: Remove dust and grime by frequent vacuuming or light brushing. Only vacuum your upholstery when it is dry. To spot clean, only use the foam of a water-based cleaning agent, such as a mild detergent or non-solvent upholstery shampoo. Apply foam with a soft brush in a circular motion. Pre-test a small area before proceeding. Use a professional furniture cleaning service when your upholstery needs an overall cleaning.

CODE S: Remove dust and grime by frequent vacuuming or light brushing. To spot clean, use a mild water-free solvent or dry cleaning product. Clean only in a well-ventilated room and avoid any product containing carbon tetrachloride, which is highly toxic. Pretest a small, non-visible area before proceeding. Using a professional furniture cleaning service is recommended.

CODE S-W: Remove dust and grime by frequent vacuuming or light brushing. To spot clean, use a mild solvent, an upholstery shampoo or the foam from a mild detergent. Avoid any product containing tetrachloride, which is highly toxic. When using a solvent or dry cleaning product, follow instructions carefully and clean only in a well-ventilated room. Pre-test a small area before proceeding. Use a professional furniture cleaning service when your upholstery needs an overall cleaning.

CODE X: Only clean this fabric by vacuuming or light brushing. Water-based foam cleaners or solvent-based cleaning agents of any kind may cause excessive shrinking, staining, or distortion of the surface pile and should not be used.


Leather is one of the easiest of all upholstery materials to care for. It requires a minimum of attention and grows more beautiful with age. However, proper cleaning and maintenance will vary from pattern to pattern, depending on the type of material used to produce the final exposed leather surface.

Sheffield does not recommend the use of any “after market” preparation, due to the many different types of finishes available. Upholstery leathers come to the marketplace from worldwide sources. If you are unsure of the proper cleaning or maintenance procedures, please ask our customer service department to check with the furniture manufacturer for recommendations before you proceed.

Never use leather/vinyl protectants, furniture polish, oil soap, saddle soap, abrasive or any other type of harsh cleaners, as they will damage the leather surface beyond correction.

We also do not recommend any type of glass or all-purpose accelerated cleaner.

Be very careful when cleaning or dusting furniture adjacent to your leather upholstery to ensure no overspray or excess cleaner gets onto the leather surface. It is best to spray your dusting cloth and clean than to spray the table or wall, which allows overspray to land on the upholstery leather. Do not dust or wipe down your leather upholstery with the same cloth you use to dust your other furniture.
