Once in a while, something comes along that is simply unbelievable. Read on to hear about a huge change in upholstery covers.
One of the most difficult items to keep clean in a beach front home is the sofa.
Try as we might, it is near impossible to keep suntan oil, sweat or body oils off them. This is even more difficult if you have children, pets or renters.
Thanks to new technology, this problem is now obsolete. Check out this 20 second video of red wine on a white fabric...although this time frame was only seconds, the result would be the same if you left the red wine on the fabric for two days!

A new type of material, called performance fabrics, is now coming to the forefront. Sports clothing manufacturers were among the first to adopt this new material. Now, upholstery manufacturers are adding performance fabrics to their lines.
Performance fabrics are made by blending nano fibers during the weave process into the typical fabrics we are used to (polyester, cotton, nylon, etc.) These combined fibers are then processed with chemicals during the end stages to make them more durable.
The result is a fabric that has a much higher resistance to any liquid.
Manufacturers such as Palliser, who are already #1 in North America for customized, comfortable leather sofas, sectionals, sofa beds and recliners, are now offering performance fabrics as part of their cover line up.
Just as in any textile, the colors and textures are already numerous and will continue to grow as the market converts from the low performance fabrics to this new cover option.
So if your sofa, sectional or sofa bed is stained and tired looking, get your next one in a performance fabric. It will last longer, look better longer and save you money.
