Cleaning Instructions

Keep your Champion™ upholstery looking new and bright with regular cleaning. Disinfecting the surfaces of your recliner between patients is critical. But disinfecting is not a replacement for cleaning. Removing oily residues from hair products, body lotions and body oils can lengthen the life of your vinyl. Removing dirt and scuffs from daily use keeps your Champion™ product and your facility looking great!

CAUTION: Other cleaning methods are used at the facility’s own risk.

For cleaning, a soft white cloth is recommended: avoid use of paper towels.

General Cleaning: Your Champion chairs are constructed of vinyl with BEAUTYGUARD®, which resists most stains. Staining materials can penetrate over time so it is important to remove the spill as soon as possible after it occurs. Not only is the clean up easier, it reduces the possibility that it will penetrate the protective finish and become permanently set in the fabric. So for the best results, give spills immediate attention.

CAUTION: Some fabric dyes have the ability to create a permanent stain. To reduce the likelihood of a problem from this or any stain, clean as soon as noticed.

VINYL MANUFACTURER’S CLEANING RECOMMENDATIONS: 

For most soiling, use a 1:10 solution of household liquid dish soap with warm water applied with a soft damp cloth. This removes most soiling. If necessary, a solution of liquid cleanser and water applied with a soft bristle brush. Wipe away the residue with a water dampened cloth.

WARNING: When solvent type cleaners are being used, care should be exercised. KEEP AWAY from fire or flame and use in a well ventilated area.

For heavier soiling, dampen a soft white cloth with lighter fluid (Naphtha) and rub gently. Rinse with a water dampened cloth.

For stains not removed by the above methods: dampen a soft white cloth with a 1:10 solution of household bleach (sodium hypochlorite) mixed with water. Rub gently. Rinse with a water dampened cloth to remove the bleach concentration. If necessary, allow this solution of bleach to water to puddle on the affected area or apply a soaked cloth for approximately 30 minutes. Rinse with a water
dampened cloth to remove any remaining bleach.

To disinfect a solution of up to 10% bleach and water may be used. Information from the fabric manufacturer is meant to establish an upper limit beyond which damage might occur.

For cleaning, a soft white cloth is recommended: avoid use of paper towels.

General Cleaning: Your Champion chairs are constructed of vinyl with protective finish, PREFIXX®, which resists most stains. The protective finish prevents most staining materials: ink, magic marker and paint from immediately penetrating the protective coating; so it is important to remove the spill as soon as possible after the spill to prevent its penetration into vinyl and becoming a permanent stain.

CAUTION: Some fabric dyes have the ability to create a permanent stain. To reduce the likelihood of a problem from this or any stain, clean as soon as noticed.

VINYL MANUFACTURER’S CLEANING RECOMMENDATIONS: 

Cleaners such as Fantastik®, Formula 409® all purpose cleaner and other similar household cleaners and bleaches for stains such as food, shoe polish, betadine, and lipstick. Use with water and a cloth or soft brush. Rinse with clear water and dry with a clean cloth.

CAUTION: Limit use of strong active solvent to six rubs. Unlimited use may remove the PREFIXX® from the vinyl surface.

A solvent-type cleaner to be used with a soft cloth or damp sponge; alcohol, for stains such as magic marker, spray paint, & grease. Use full strength and dry with a cloth. Rinse with clear water and dry with a clean cloth.

Strong active solvent cleaners such as nail polish remover (acetone/water) applied with a soft cloth or damp sponge for such stains as paint, ball point pen and toner. Use with a soft cloth. Rinse with clear water.

To disinfect a solution of up to 10% bleach and water may be used. Information from the fabric
manufacturer is meant to establish an upper limit beyond which damage might occur.

CAUTION: Powdered adhesives, abrasive cleaners, steel wool and industrial strengthcleaners are not recommended for MorCare vinyl. Any lacquer solvent will cause immediate damage to the vinyl. Wax should never be used, as it will cause embrittlement and cracking. Dilute chlorine beach: never use full strength on vinyl. Always rinse with clear water after using cleaning solutions.

Certain stains* may become permanent unless removed immediately. *Ball point ink - Use rubbing alcohol full strength on a soft cloth immediately to remove much of the stain.

WARNING: NEVER mix ammonia, or a cleaner with ammonia, with bleach as dangerous compounds may result.

WARNING: When solvent type cleaners are being used, care should be exercised. KEEP AWAY from fire or flame and use in a well ventilated area.

For these specific items the manufacture recommends:
*Blood - Use a clean cloth soaked in cold water to rub out spots. Use household ammonia, rinsing with clean wet cloth for persistent spots. Do not use hot water or soap suds this will set the stain.

*Shoe polish – Shoe polish will stain permanently. Use a cloth saturated with mineral spirits or kerosene rubbing lightly to remove residue. Rinse thoroughly with clean water. Do not smear stain beyond original source.

*Chewing gum – Rub with a ice cube then scrape off as much as possible with a dull knife. Use a cloth saturated with mineral spirits rubbing lightly to remove residue. Rinse thoroughly with clean water.

*Grease/Oil – Use a cloth saturated with mineral spirits rubbing lightly to remove residue. Do not smear stain beyond original source. Work from the outer edge toward the center of the stain. Rinse thoroughly with clean water.

General Cleaning: Your Champion chairs are constructed of fabric with a superior finish. This finish
resists staining materials.

FABRIC MANUFACTURER’S CLEANING RECOMMENDATIONS:

Follow these steps in order. If the stain is removed; stop the cleaning process at that point, after rinsing with clean water and drying the fabric.

  1. Remove excess spill with a damp cloth. Clean ordinary dirt, dust smudges and ordinary spills
    with a damp cloth.
  2. For water soluble stains such as coffee, mustard, juice, etc. remove with soap and water solutions, always rinse with clear water and dry with a clean cloth. Soap solutions may be applied with a cloth or a soft bristle brush.

    In general, ball point pen ink stains are difficult to remove. The sooner the ink is cleaned the better the chance for success. Ink compositions vary and not all ink stains can be removed.
  3. For more stubborn stains, such as ink, grease, shoe polish. Wet a portion of a soft white cloth with a blend of 50% rubbing alcohol and 50% Wisk® detergent. Another option is rubbing alcohol and baking soda.
  4. Apply the cleaning solutions to the ink stain and blot up the stain. Do not rub. Blot up all of the cleaning solutions and repeat step 2 several times either blotting the stain or gently rubbing in a circular motion. Do not rub vigorously.
  5. Apply a small amount of the cleaning solution with a soft bristle toothbrush and gently brush in a circular motion. As the ink loosens up blot up the stain with a dry cloth. Repeat this step three times, using small amounts of cleaning solutions each time.
  6. Extract the cleaning solution with a damp cloth several times to remove the cleaning solutions (and the blue Wisk® color).
  7. Allow to dry. Check for residual soap and repeat step 4 if necessary.

To disinfect a solution of up to 20% bleach and water may be used. Information from the fabric manufacturer is meant to establish an upper limit beyond which damage might occur.

CAUTION: Other cleaning methods are used at the facility’s own risk.

For easy cleaning of recent soiling, promptly wash with a mild soap solution. For a previously soiled area
that has not yet penetrated the vinyl surface, scrub with a soft brush using a mild, non-abrasive cleaner.

Cleaning frequency depends on use. Please clean and maintain your furniture regularly.

Clean all spills as soon as possible and use the following cleaning procedures in order for best results.

  1. Remove excess spill with a damp cloth. Clean ordinary dirt, dust smudges and ordinary spills with a damp cloth.
  2. Use straight application of concentrated cleaners such as Formula 409®r Fantastik®. Rinse
    with clear water. Wipe with clean cloth.
  3. For more difficult stains, use a 6% mixture of bleach with water. Rinse with clear water and dry.
    Never use bleach in full strength to clean vinyl.

Notes: Please be sure to use a soft brush or cloth saturated with cleaning material. Always test
cleaning methods on an inconspicuous area of furniture. If stain persists, stain has probably set.
Although this vinyl is resistant to most common stains, some fabric dyes and ballpoint inks can create a
permanent stain.

To disinfect a solution of up to 20% bleach and water may be used except on Raffia where a 6%
solution
 may be used. After using bleach solution be sure to rinse area with a soft cloth moistened with
clear water and let dry. Bleach solutions not completely removed can fade the material. Never use
bleach in full strength to clean these materials. Information in regard to the strength of bleach solution
from the vinyl manufacturer is meant to establish an upper limit beyond which damage might occur.
