LEATHER furniture:

It is important to remember that leather’s best attribute is that it is a natural material. Therefore, it is normal and acceptable for leather to have small scars, insect bites, wrinkles and striations that absolutely cannot be considered defects but instead guarantee that the product is in fact leather.

Most leathers are easily maintained without polishes, preservers or leather soaps, however, it is possible to use a non-toxic leather conditioner if you prefer, only on finished leathers. If you have unprotected leathers, or you are unsure, please contact us first. For routine maintenance, simply dust or vacuum to keep furniture looking good. Protect your furniture from direct sunlight, as this may cause the leather to fade unevenly. Dab spills immediately with a soft cloth dampened in distilled water. Most surface marks will fade over time if you rub them with your fingers. Natural oils are released to help the marks disappear. All leather will wear over time, giving your piece its own unique character.
Cow Hide: Clean with a wet soft bristle brush and go in the direction of the fur.
NOTE: Certain clothing dyes, particularly those used in new denim, have a tendency to transfer onto fabrics, vinyls and leather. Palazzetti cannot predict how these dyes will behave, and as a result we cannot warranty against the resulting transfer.

 

FABRIC furniture:

For regular maintenance and to maintain the nap of the fabric, we recommend vacuuming your sofa regularly.
Dab spills immediately with an absorbent cloth and remove the stain using cool distilled water and/or a mild soap. DO NOT over-saturate a stain with cleanser. Always test in an inconspicuous area first before using any soap product. For thorough cleaning, we recommend professional dry cleaning or a professional in-home upholstery cleaning service.

Wood:

Clean with a dry lint-free cloth. If necessary, dampen slightly with water. We do not recommend oils or other wood products.

Painted, Lacquered and Embossed finishes:

For normal cleaning, use a slightly damp soft cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaners, solvents, ammonia, acetone and oil. In case of stains, remove them with a solution of mild soap and water, taking care to dry the wet surfaces.

Glass:

Shiny glass can be cleaned with glass cleaner. Satin / matte / acid glass should be cleaned with a lint free cloth moistened with methylated spirits. Never use products containing acetone, ammonia, chlorine, solvents or abrasive products.

 

Marble:

Marble is a porous stone and it must be noted that no stone sealer, no matter the quality, will protect your marble tabletop from all stains, etchings and scratches. However, if cared for properly, a marble top table will age well and be with you for a long time.

Due to marble’s porous nature, acids of varying strengths can harm and even permanently damage it.

  • Don’t use cleaners that are not intended specifically for marble – their acidity will do more damage than good.
  • Don’t allow acidic substances such as tomato juice, vinegar, wine etc to sit on the surface. Wiping these types of spills away as soon as possible won’t allow the acid to etch your tabletop’s surface. Even coffee is a weak acid, so don’t leave spills to sit. Wipe the table with water. Care should be used with milk products as the calcium can react with the stone as well. Serious etching and pitting caused by acids may require refinishing by a professional.
  • Using placemats, coasters and felt on the bottom of accessories will protect the surface from watermarks, scratches and heat.

Regular Care:

For everyday cleaning, either purchase a daily use marble cleaner or clean the surface with only warm water on a soft cloth. Regular dusting will keep particulates from building up and possibly harming the surface over time.

Sealer Application:

Your table has been sealed at the factory with one coat of sealer, but regular application of a sealer is necessary. Purchase sealers from any tile retailer and apply to the surface of the table, following the product instructions. Three to five applications may be necessary depending on whether or not the table is in a high traffic area (e.g. kitchens). No sealer will protect from all stains – no matter how many applications are used, so wipe up spills promptly.

Sealer should be reapplied based on use. See manufacturer’s guidelines on the product packaging.
