Fabric Treatments - Protect the Beauty of Your Furniture
It happens. You settle into your newly upholstered wing chair with a glass of wine to relax at the end of a busy day. Sensing your mood, the dog sneaks up and nudges your elbow. And the wine spills. On your clothes. On your lovely new chenille fabric. A disaster? Maybe for your clothes, definitely for the wasted wine. Not for your upholstery!
Spill Repellent Stain Release Fabric Treatment
The Nanotex company developed a treatment that works much better. And which is permanent to the fabric - a feature that Scotchguard lacks. It also doesn't change the feel of the fabric unlike Teflon. The Nanotex treatment is so effective at preventing fabric stains from dirt and spills such as coffee, soda, wine, mustard (do you spill mustard on your sofa?), salad dressing and urine that it is the only fabric stain release treatment we suggest.
Several fabric houses such as Kravet, Duralee and Fabricut offer fabric collections that are pre-treated with the Nanotex stain release treatment. They and others also offer the treatment on a per-order basis for most of their fabrics not already treated.
Liquid Barrier - Cushion Protection
Stability backing the fabric is the solution in many cases. The backings are bonded to the back of the fabric, locking the threads and the weave in place. A thread that snags and breaks will not continue to 'run' and fray. The potential for the weave to distort in pressure areas is minimized and the seams are more robust. Lighter fabrics are less likely to tear. The backings include a light latex backing, acrylic backing and a knit fabric backing.
For commercial establishments or very heavy use situations where puncture and tear protection is important, we have access to a non-woven "Stiletto" backing.
