What do the upholstery codes on my furniture mean for cleaning?

Have a spill on your new couch and trying to decipher what that X means for the cleaning code on the deck tag underneath the cushions?  Here is a list of the most common codes, and what the code means:

W:The code "W" means that your furniture should be able to be cleaned with water.
S: The code "S" means that a furniture cleaning solvent can be used on your piece.
SW: The code "SW" means that both water and solvent can be used to clean your furniture.
X: This code means that you should not apply water or solvents to this particular piece of furniture, and instead should clean it using a soft brush, or in the case of deep staining, by taking the upholstery to be dry cleaned.

Please note that the deck tag may also list fabric types, but by law, the manufacturer only has to list the fabric contents inside the cushions.  The actual fabric type on the outside of the cushion is probably not listed anywhere on the actual piece of furniture, so use extreme caution when cleaning fabric.  When it comes to the amount of cleaning solution you use, less is better for fabric. posted: April 19, 2013 - Heaven's Best Denver Carpet Cleaners - Blog
