TIPS FOR KEEPING YOUR VINYL SEATING IN GOOD CONDITION – SIMS SUPERIOR SEATING

Posted on

#2poufSIMS Superior Seating has been manufacturing high quality furniture to meet the diversified needs of the food service and hospitality industry since 1977. As a leading expert in the industry, SIMS furniture will make a positive, lasting impression on your customers, clients and employees. In order to make that “lasting impression” literally “last”, we suggest you follow these tips to clean and take care of your vinyl furnishings:

MILD STAINS – Simply use a mild liquid soap with warm water. If necessary, use a soft brush to remove all spots and debris. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a clean cloth. If possible, we suggest you first test a small, out-of-sight area on the vinyl seating before applying the same cleaning solution on the entire piece of furniture.

DIFFICULT STAINS – For deeper, more difficult stains, use a weak solution of bleach and water. To avoid discoloration of the vinyl, do not use more than 10% bleach in the solution. Let the solution sit for a few minutes, rub gently and then rinse well. Again, we suggest testing a small area first.

LONG-TERM CARE OF VINYL – Although we use durable, built-to-last vinyl on our furnishings, we still recommend using a vinyl protectant or household furniture wax after every cleaning. This will help the vinyl from drying out and keep it looking like new.

We hope these tips will be productive in trying to remove stains and take care of your vinyl furnishings for many years to come. For more information regarding the services and products that SIMS Superior Seating offers, contact us at 800-729-9178.

According to the HuffingtonPost.com, we will take a trip with Mile High Biscuits in Utah, through the Silver Crescent City where they “love them one and all”, to a 1939 classic “vinyl seating and marble countertops” diner in one of the prettiest towns in America. Bon Appétit!

5. Ruth’s Diner (Salt Lake City, UT) – Serving comfort food since 1930, Ruth’s diner is one of the oldest dining establishments in the state of Utah.

3. Slim Goodie’s Diner (New Orleans, LA) – The incredible fare and toe-tapping music aren’t the only reasons visitors from around the world visit Slim Goodie’s Diner in New Orleans. Slim Goodie’s Diner embodies the heart and soul of giving back to the community. After Hurricane Katrina (and without power), the staff rallied and helped feed hundreds of local residents. After Hurricane Isaac, again they rallied and helped feed displaced victims. They definitely stand by their proclamation of “the best customers anyone could ask for, we love them one and all!”

2. A1 Diner (Gardiner, ME) – Serving a fresh menu since 1946 with ingredients locally sourced, A1 Diner is committed to serving their community. If you are lucky to stop by, try out their Sicilian Lamb Stew and seasonal treats such as Pumpkin Caramel Pudding.
