Do you knowing how to clean and care for your upholstered church chairs? With proper cleaning, care, and maintenance, it is possible to have all the sanctuary looking its best for a long time. It pays to be consistent, and it’s not hard to do.


Choose the Right Fabric


When you choose the right fabric for the right place you make your upholstery maintenance task easier. Always make sure that you choose fabric that is appropriate for its intended purpose. For example, Olefin Fabrics are a better choice for upholstered sanctuary seating which will have commercial usage.


Protect Fabric


Prompt attention to spills is by far the best plan for protection. A lot of work is done for you when the upholstery fabric undergoes the finishing process at the mill or factory. It is usually treated with soil and/or water repellents.   Additional fabric protection, mildew inhibitors, and finishes are typically available in upgraded fabrics choices like Crypton® and Ultima Finish® by Johnston Textiles.


Crypton® a textile solution offering permanent stain, moisture, mildew, bacteria and odor-resistant protection. It actually helps prevent the growth of bacteria.  Fabric engineered with Crypton® retains breathable comfort, while maintaining a moisture barrier finish.


The Ultima Finish by Johnston provides the ideal fabric solution for the Hospitality, Healthcare, Restaurant, Auditorium, Arena, Worship and any other high traffic contract seating environment. Acting as a barrier that will not allow fluid to penetratethe fabric.


While this helps with maintenance and care by keeping spills from being absorbed into the upholstery fibers right away, it is not a substitute for prompt cleaning of a soiled piece. Don’t let it give you a false sense of security. Always clean up any spills or stains in a timely manner, and follow manufacturers’ instructions for proper care methods.
