Tretford should be vacuumed daily with a pile-agitation vacuum cleaner. If the regular vacuum system relies on suction only, it is essential that a vacuum cleaner with pile agitation be used periodically.

Spills should be blotted, not rubbed. If stain appears when dry, apply cleaning solvent and blot dry. Periodically, tretford should be professionally steam cleaned, using a low heat and low pressure upholstery approach. Wet rotary shampooing is not recommended.

Damaged or permanently stained areas may be cut out and neatly replaced with new patches.
