by Aiza

Congratulations on furnishing your home with a selection from Ecosa’s new Transcend bed frame collection. These premium bedroom furnishings offer the perfect foundation for a healthy night’s sleep, and we’re confident you’ll find them easy to assemble and care for. To ensure you get the very most out of your new bed frame, you must take the time to look after it. With regular maintenance, you can be confident that your bed frame will stand the test of time.

Learning how to clean and maintain your new investment to ensure a lifetime of enjoyment and relaxation is important. By simply taking a few precautions and paying attention to your bed frame when you are cleaning your home, you can make a big difference to the lifespan of your new bed frame. Like everything else in your home, the better you look after your bed frame, the better it will serve you moving forward.

Let’s take a look at a few useful tips that will help you to clean and care for your new Ecosa bed frame with ease.

Avoid Direct Sunlight

Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet rays will degrade upholstery colours and fabric, causing the deep colours to fade and appear prematurely worn. Wood isn’t immune to sun damage, either, so if possible, arrange your furniture so it doesn’t sit in direct sunlight for most of the day. Alternatively, consider using furniture covers or drawing the curtains and blinds closed enough so that the bed frame and other furniture aren’t overexposed to the harsh ultraviolet rays.

Vacuum Regularly

Dust and dirt will build up on every surface, and it doesn’t take much time for it to become noticeable. Much like your cooking and eating areas, for health reasons, you should want your sleeping environment to be as clean and tidy as possible. A good baseline starting point for this is to vacuum all of the bed frame and bed head surfaces. This includes the top of the headboards, the side rails, and all exposed wood surfaces. Dust mites and mould often build up here, especially in humid climates so it’s important to be as thorough as possible.

Quickly Tend To Spills

Prevent those accidental spills from becoming more unsightly, permanent stains by blotting them with a clean, damp cloth as soon as possible. Blotting prevents spills from going deep through multiple layers of bedding such as blankets, sheets and mattresses. Once most of the spill is soaked up, you should spot-clean the affected area with upholstery shampoo, mild detergent, or mild cleaning solvent.

Be sure to pay attention to the labels you’re cleaning these products with to check if they are in concentrated form. If so, dilute them as per the manufacturer’s instructions to prevent upholstery colours from running or fading. Also, make sure to avoid extensive scrubbing as it will loosen up the fibres and cause flaws within the fabric. Instead, use light pressure with a clean microfibre cloth and continue rubbing the spill until the area is covered with shampoo or the cleaning mixture. Finish up with a final vacuum and let the area dry and use a fan to speed up the drying process.

Cleaning Wood Surfaces 

To clean your wooden bed frame after a spill, simply use a bucket to mix up equal amounts of white vinegar and hot water. Soak a clean, soft cotton or microfibre cloth in the vinegar-water mixture, then wring the excess into the bucket so the fabric is just damp enough. Wipe the affected area until clean, then use a clean dry cloth to dry the excess moisture completely.  Mould likes to build up and feed on wood surfaces, so be sure to completely dry the area once you’ve cleaned it.

Cushion Cover Cleaning

Ecosa Cushion covers may be removed to be machine washed on warm or cold cycles but hot cycles should be avoided. If you are machine drying, be sure to use low heat as a higher heat may shrink, melt, or deform the fabric.

Fabric Protectors

Since we cannot guarantee the performance of third-party fabric protector solutions, we do not recommend using these products on your bed frame or bedhead. In case you do decide to try one, please follow the instructions on the label, and test the product on a small, less visible area first to be sure there won’t be any problems down the line. When not mixed or diluted properly, these concentrated products may cause discolouration or changes to fabric, which will not be covered under your 5-year warranty.
