Cleaning your England Furniture Company product

If spills result in a stain, spot cleaning is best for removal. Before spot cleaning, it is important to know the fabric cleaning code.  The cleaning code provides specific information regarding fabric cleaning methods recommended by the Joint Industry Standards Committee.

Manufacturers, based on information from their fabric sources and laboratory testing, add an alphabetical symbol to each new fabric swatch denoting the cleaning method. Symbols and their meanings adopted by the Joint Committee are as follows:

Code “W” Clean only with water based shampoo or foam upholstery cleaner. Do not over wet. Do not use solvents to spot clean. Pile fabrics may require brushing to restore appearance. Cushion covers should not be removed and laundered.

Code “S”
Clean only with dry cleaning solvent. Do not saturate. Do not use water. Pile fabrics may require brushing to restore appearance. Cushion covers should not be removed and dry cleaned.

Code “SW”
Clean with shampoo, foam or dry cleaning solvents as desired. Do not saturate with liquid. Pile fabrics may require brushing to restore appearance. Cushion covers should not be removed to launder or dry clean.

Code “X”
Do not clean with either water or solvent based cleaner. Use vacuuming or light brushing only.


It is extremely important to pre-test your cleaning method on a hidden area of the fabric to determine if the colors bleed or if the fabric shrinks. When in doubt, seek the help of a professional furniture cleaner.</>


The fabric cleaning code for England Furniture can be found on the law label typically located on the seat deck or the underside of the frame.

Routine care and maintenance of England Furniture keeps it looking fresh and vibrant while providing full longevity to the fabric, cushions and overall condition. These steps, along with periodic professional cleaning, can provide many years of comfort, pleasure and satisfaction with your furniture selection.
