SIMS 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.
We only use durable, built-to-last vinyl on our furnishings, but we recognize that it will need to be cleaned, especially being used in the hospitality and food industries. Here are a few tips to help you keep the vinyl on your furniture clean and in tip-top shape:
For Light Soiling on Vinyl
When cleaning any type of surface, it is good practice to test a small, out-of-sight area before applying the same solution to the entire piece of furniture. For light soiling on vinyl, simply use a mild liquid soap with warm water. If necessary, use a soft brush to remove all spots and debris. Rinse well and dry with a clean cloth.
Difficult Stains on Vinyl
Again, be sure to test on a small area before applying to the same surface. For heavy, difficult stains, try using a weak solution of bleach and water. You do not want to use more than 10% bleach as it could discolor the vinyl. Let the solution sit for a few minutes, rub gently and rinse well.
To keep vinyl from drying out and in “like-new” condition, use a vinyl protectant or household furniture wax after every cleaning.
