Performance Fabric Patterns and Care
Specific Pattern Properties and Cleaning Codes
Performance Fabrics, by definition, have superior stain and fade resistance, long lasting durability, and are easily cleanable. Fabrics bearing these properties are categorized into a High Performance Stain Protection Group. Current La-Z-Boy patterns in the line that fall into this High Performance Stain Group are listed below, with explanations of specific characteristics following the list.

RD1037 Gran Torino, RE9915 Cantina, RE9947 Palance, RF1316 Soft Touch, RF1397 Siena:
The construction of polyurethane fabrics like these patterns is one of multiple layers of urethane film which comprise the surface of these fabrics. These layers of polyurethane form a mostly water repellant barrier and are therefore fairly easy to clean. Due to the inherent cleaning properties of recycled leather, after-treatment is NOT recommended for these covers.

Distinguishing between the "Micros"
"Micro Denier" is a term for the yarn itself. The term "denier" is what is used to indicate the measurement of the size of the yarn. Therefore, a micro denier yarn is a smaller yarn than normal and is usually a nylon/polyester blend. Patterns manufactured/designed using these yarns that HAVE NOT been put through the suede process are referred to as "Micro Denier" fabrics.
"Microfibers" is simply the name of a company who manufactures fabric….That’s it! The name has been tossed around so much in the industry itself, that now the consumers are using it to describe the type of fabric that is actually a micro denier!
"Sueded Micro Denier" is a fabric that is produced using a micro denier yarn. It is then brushed twice to achieve a suede hand. The first brushing is applied before dyeing and the second brushing is considered a "suede" process which is achieved by brushing with many small pins. The fabric is dyed and sheared…which gives you the final suede look and touch. Finally, a finish is applied to the fabric to enable it to be extremely cleanable. Another reason these fabrics are easily cleaned is the micro denier yarns are smaller, and are woven so tightly together, the dirt/dust/food particles cannot penetrate the fabric itself allowing the finish to work at its best!
"Padded Sueded Micro Denier" is a micro denier fabric that also has a layer of padding between the face and the backing that adds dimension and softness.
"Recycled Leather" is a composite material constructed of recycled leather scraps with a cellular polyurethane face. After-treatment is NOT recommended for these covers.

Pile fabrics may require brushing with a non-metallic, stiff bristle brush to restore appearance. Hot water extraction or steam cleaning is not a recommended cleaning method. Cushion covers should not be removed and laundered. To prevent overall soiling, frequent vacuuming or light brushing with a non-metallic, stiff bristle brush to remove dust and grime is recommended. When cleaning a spill, blot immediately to remove spilled material. Clean spots or stains from the outside to the middle of the affected area to prevent circling. Use a professional furniture cleaning service when an overall soiled condition has been reached.
