UPHOLSTERY:

All Proquinal vinyl fabrics must pass rigorous quality laboratory tests, thus guaranteeing dependable, durable, and comfortable products that will satisfy you. Here are some practical tips to assure the durability of furniture upholstered with Proquinal vinyl fabrics:
 
  • A periodic cleaning is recommended to keep the upholstery’s excellent appearance; use a solution of mild soap and water, wiping it off thoroughly, and always use a damp white cloth. Remember that light colors, like white, require more frequent cleaning.
  • Do not clean with solvents such as thinner, varsol, acetone, alcohol, bleaches, waxes, silicone or detergents. These cause permanent damage to the material.
  • Do not make marks with ball-point pens. The ink may be absorbed, causing a permanent stain.
  • Unlike other materials, you need not worry about the occasional accident with liquids such as wine, beer, other liquors, juices, soda, coffee or tea; simply follow the instructions for occasional cleaning. Clean up the spill as soon as possible, especially if the liquid has a deep color (to avoid permanent staining).
  • Avoid exposing your furniture to tanning lotions or other oily substances. In the event this happens, clean the furniture as quickly as possible with mild liquid soap or an upholstery shampoo, removing totally the oily substance and the excess of soap.
  • Proquinal products do not bleed colors onto other materials, but certain garments with poor dying processes, such as rags, dark textiles and denim, may bleed color onto the Proquinal material. If this occurs, clean immediately, rubbing the affected area in a circular motion, with upholstery shampoo and a white cloth or soft-bristled brush. Any discoloration may be cleaned up to 100% within 24 hours; after 48 hours, up to 80%; and after 1 week, up to only 50%.

FLOORING:

  • Do not clean with solvents such as thinner, acetone, Ketonox, alcohol, etc. The use of silicone or strong detergents is not recommended.
  • Periodically, mop with a solution of neutral detergent, scrubbing stains lightly, rinse with water and allow to dry.
  • Avoid leaving detergent residue on the vinyl surface since it may affect the anti-slip properties of the floor covering.
  • Avoid using brushes with polishing disks or rotary brushes since they can abrade the surface and may cause the material to deteriorate prematurely.

INDUSTRIAL PROTECTIVE CLOTHING:

  • Clean the garment each day immediately after use in a mild soapy solution.
  • Hang the garment inside-out (with the fabric side out) in a cool, dry location, to assure drying and avoiding direct sunlight; put it away when clean and dry.
  • As soon as possible, clean any stains, spills or soiling, to avoid permanent staining. In the event of exposure to chemicals, immediately wash the garment after exposure.
  • Punctures from thorns or sharp objects contribute to tearing of the garment. In the event of deterioration or tearing of the garment, use patches of reinforcing material with rounded corners.
  • Lacquer, paint, strong cleansers, powder abrasives, steel wool, bristle brushes, detergents and solvents such as thinner, acetone, Ketonox, etc., may be very effective in removing stains, but they cause immediate damage and deteriorate vinyl material, especially if applied to the backing material. 
  • Remember, Proquinal products are designed to be impermeable to WATER. Any prolonged exposure to solvents or other liquids will result in deterioration of the garment.
