Avoid exposing the leather to direct sunlight and keep it away from heat sources. This includes avoiding drying the leather after cleaning, either in the sun or using a hair dryer.
Wipe the dust regularly using a clean, dry and soft white cotton cloth
Avoid wetting aniline and nubuck leathers, because, due to the natural properties of these leathers, traces of water may remain visible even after drying. If this happens, allow the skin to dry naturally.
To remove dry stains, carefully remove them by hand or with an extremely soft brush
To remove liquid stains, clean the surface carefully by dabbing with a paper towel. Do not apply too much pressure as this may push the stain into the pores of the skin, which will prevent it from being removed later.
Clean with light circular motions starting from the outer edges of the stain inwards. RUBBING IS NOT RECOMMENDED
Use a slightly damp cotton cloth or cotton wool for cleaning. THE USE OF MICROFIBRE CLOTHS IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED
Dried stains can be cleaned with a cloth dampened in water with a few drops of milk, and after cleaning, lightly dry the wet part by dabbing with a flannel cloth.
Do not clean hard stains with soluble agents that can damage the leather. Over time, small stains will even out.
Never use aggressive cleaning agents, turpentine, shoe polish or steam to remove stains. Only mild products can be used such as neutral soap or certain cleansing milks.
It is recommended to use products that are certified for cleaning leather. In our salons you can find cleaning products from Italian manufacturers under their or our cleaning brand according to leather type. Please strictly adhere to the enclosed instructions for use when using the products

In addition to certified products, pigmented leather can be coated with a damp cloth with a few drops of milk after one year of use, while the same is not recommended for aniline and nubuck leather. That is why certified products are the best choice.
Hoover regularly with the upholstery attachment on low power.
Clean up spills and stains as soon as possible because stains are harder to remove the longer they remain untended to (neglected, ignored)
Protect the fabric from direct sunlight and keep it away from heat sources, as this can lead to discoloration and cause the fibres to become brittle and weak, which can result in possible holes in the fabric.
Prevent Velcro and sharp objects such as rings, buckles, wedges, buttons and claws of pets from coming into contact with your furniture as they may cause the fabric to pull or tear.
Colour can be transferred from some clothes, such as denim and coloured woven fabrics, to the fabric of your upholstered furniture, so please keep that in mind.
Fabric pilling can sometimes occur as the result of normal daily use, and cannot be considered a defect. This is a characteristic of fabrics that contain natural materials in their composition, which does not affect durability. Pills can be removed with appliances provided for this purpose available in most large department stores.
Professional dry cleaning is recommended not more often than six months, only in shops certified for that service.
Always refer to the Fabric Maintenance Label for the material you have before cleaning and please adhere to it carefully. The labels are represented by symbols whose meaning is explained in the guide on our website.
To remove liquid stains, wipe the surface carefully by dabbing with a paper towel or white cotton cloth. Do not apply too much pressure as this may push the stain deeper, which will make it difficult to remove it later. Then remove the stain.
If the stain cannot be removed with water, use only mild, colourless soaps, which you can remove with a water-soaked cloth.
Remove the remaining water well with a dry cloth, and then using warm air from a hair dryer at a distance of at least 30 cm from the fabric. Direct warm air from the outer edges of the stain inwards.

Gently dusting with a clean microfiber cloth will help preserve the beauty of wood and veneer. It is also recommended to place your furniture away from sources of heat and/or moisture, which can lead to the cracking or bending of the wood/wood veneer during expanding and shrinking caused by changes in temperature.
Keeping your furniture in perfect condition is possible by avoiding exposure to direct sunlight or ultraviolet light, which can cause discoloration or deterioration of the surface. Also, it is very important to place a protective coating between the wood and any object placed on it. This primarily refers to heavy, hot or abrasive objects that can seriously damage the wooden surface.
To reduce scratches on wood veneer, avoid moving objects across the surface, as well as writing on paper placed directly on the surface, as ballpoint pen or pencil can leave marks.
Clean immediately if something spills, do not allow nail polish remover, hair spray, perfume or strong corrosive solvents to come in contact with wood or veneer and do not use any chemicals, detergents or products containing silicon to clean wood veneer.
Do not use varnishes that contain silicon or products that leave greasy marks and avoid general cleaning agents on wooden surfaces.
In order to properly maintain and clean metal surfaces, it is important to adhere to the following:
It is recommended to regularly vacuum or wipe the surface with a soft cotton cloth.
To remove most traces, which are most often fingerprints, use plain water in which you can add an neutral cleaning agent.
For traces that are more difficult to remove, a mild window cleaner or a spray made of water and vinegar in an 80/20 ratio and a soft cloth can be used.
After cleaning, it is recommended to rinse with clean cold water and wipe with a dry cotton cloth.
Scraping with metal objects, steel wool, etc. is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN, as well as the use of products containing: hydrochloric acid, bleaches, silver cleaners and abrasives.
Do not place anything sticky, hot or ice cold directly on the marble tabletop
Acids are particularly abrasive and can leave stains on marble, so avoid using acidic cleaners, as well as cutting or serving acidic foods like lemons directly on marble furniture.
Avoid using strong alkaline cleaning products, which can cause polished marble surfaces to lose their lustre and turn yellow
Tannins (found in coffee, tea and wine)
Beta carotene (found in carrots and other vegetables)
Calcium and magnesium carbonates (found in hard water)
Acids or alkalis (vinegar, ammonia, lemon, etc.)
Fats and oils
Stains and scratches are more easily visible on marble than on other materials, so make sure to wipe the stain as soon as possible.
To remove old layers of glaze, a very diluted basic and mild cleaner is recommended. Clean the surface with water and wipe with a well-wrung cotton cloth. Never use acids (vinegar, lemon, etc. that corrode stone).
For a better appearance of surfaces, colour intensity and deep cleaning of marble surfaces, use certified agents for maintaining stone and marble, following the instructions given by the manufacturer.
For general cleaning, dilute the marble maintenance agent in water and be sure to treat it after cleaning with a well-wrung cotton cloth
