FABRIC & LINEN CARE
Our New Zealand Made sofas should have specific care instructions with your selected fabric, we always recommend professional cleaners for cleaning as a first option.
Our MCM Range of House sofas, beds and cushions are made from a selection of curated fabrics. To best care for these fabrics we recommend vacuuming on a weekly basis to remove dust and dirt. We suggest you avoid placing these fabrics in direct sunlight, as UV will cause fading and a change in colour may occur over time. We recommend treating any spills or marks immediately with the help of a qualified professional upholstery cleaner.
To clean your fabric and linen covers, use a professional upholstery cleaner only.
It’s normal for our customers to update their fabric and linen covers every few years. A life well lived means plenty of chill time on the sofa. As such, a sofa is often the most popular destination in a home, and its appearance can reflect this over time.
CARING FOR YOUR TIMBER:
New Zealand made timber products are designed for our climate, and durably built to last, so you can enjoy them for a as long as you like. Between Oak, American Ash, Walnut and our other variations of timber it is best to use warm soapy water to clean surfaces.
MCM House timber products are designed to give you many years of enjoyment also. The timber is sourced from local and international indigenous hardwoods and are pre-seasoned to ensure maximum longevity. The beauty of choosing natural timber products are the unique characteristics and features within, such as varying colours, grains, and textures.
The natural characteristics of timber also respond to the environments in which they are placed. Splits and cracks may appear and should not be seen as a fault or a flaw, but should be celebrated as the timber takes on its own unique character. These changes in the timber will not compromise the construction or structural integrity of the furniture. And, as we cannot control the environment in which you place your timber product, we cannot control or predict the changes you will see in your timber. We suggest to minimise movement in the timber, it should not be placed outside in direct sunlight, near fireplaces, or in heavily air-conditioned areas.
In order to care for the appearance of your timber product, we suggest avoiding direct contact with heat, liquid, and abrasive cleaners or chemicals. Also, avoid placing hot items like mugs or plates on the surface without coasters or placemats underneath, this will prevent marks and stains. To remove any dirt or dust, simply use a damp cloth.
MAINTAINING YOUR TIMBER:
Like any big investment piece in life, timber products do require maintenance or restoration from time to time, depending on how it is used and cared for. The natural characteristics of timber respond to the environments they are placed in. Splits and cracks may appear and should not be seen as a fault or flaw, but should be celebrated as the timber takes on its own unique character. These changes in the timber will not compromise the construction or structural integrity.
The aesthetic is for our timber products to gain character and reflect our lifestyles over time. However should you want to retain the original appearance of your timber item, we suggest a water-based sealer (clear matte finish) be applied every 12 months.
