SLEEP SET INFORMATION AND MAINTENANCE TIPS

HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR NEW SLEEP SET: To properly care for your new sleep set, be sure it is
installed correctly on a sturdy metal bed frame or bed with a center support(s) for queen and king sizes. To keep the wear on your new mattress even, it should be rotated on a regular basis. We recommend that this be done weekly during the first month. Afterwards, a monthly mattress rotation is recommended.

WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR NEW SLEEP SET: A new sleep set can feel firmer than the floor model that you tried because it needs time to “break in” and conform to you. During the first 60 – 90 days, all new mattresses will soften a bit as a result of “breaking in.” Body impressions up to 1 1/2” are a normal occurrence in new mattresses. This indicates that the mattress’ comfort layers are conforming to a person’s individual body. If you feel you would like to help minimize these body impressions, you can rotate the mattress throughout its life as discussed above. And remember, as most people have been sleeping on the same sleep set for quite some time, it is natural that it may take time for you to get used to your new sleep set.

NEW FURNITURE ODOR: Just like a shiny new car, your new sleep set may have a “new car,” better known as a “new furniture” smell. These odors are normal and caused by the various materials used in its construction. A new sleep sets remains wrapped, for your protection, until it is in its new home, therefore your sleep set just needs some time to air out. These mild “new furniture” odors will dissipate over time.

OTHER INFORMATION OF NOTE: If for any reason your mattress is found to have a defect during its warranty period, please remember that any stains or spills, even on a defective mattress, voids your warranty and the mattress will not be accepted back either by Barbo’s or by the mattress manufacturer. This is in compliance with state and federal laws that protect public health. Purchase a water / stain proof mattress pad to protect your mattress against staining and soiling. Barbo’s does not accept returns or exchanges on any sleep set for any other reason other than defects covered under warranty. We do not accept returns for comfort issues. Also, if you did not buy a new foundation or boxspring with your new mattress, please remember that mattress companies will not honor their warranties if a new mattress is placed on an old foundation. The reason for this is if the old foundation is defective internally, it may cause your new mattress to fail.

Do not allow anyone to jump on your new mattress or foundation; to do so may damage interior components and thus may void your warranty. Please DO NOT remove the tag (law label). The information on this tag will be needed if there any issues with your new sleep set. If you alter your mattress and/or foundation in any way, you also void your warranty.

WOOD FURNITURE INFORMATION AND MAINTENANCE TIPS

HOW TO AVOID DAMGE FROM THE ELEMENTS:  If possible, avoid exposing wood furniture to direct sunlight, extreme heat or excessive humidity. Such extremes can cause cracking and fading.

HOW TO KEEP YOUR WOOD FURNITURE PROTECTED: Any spilled liquids, even water, should be wiped immediately with a soft, damp cloth in the direction of the wood grain. Liquid left on wood or wood veneer can cause unsightly marks, so consider using coasters and/or place-mats to protect your new wood furniture. We also recommend that you do not place rubber, plastic or hot objects directly on wood or wood veneer surfaces. As these may mark or ding the surface. Always place a protective layer of felt, cork, or glass under accessories, lamps or electronic components. Your wood furniture can be cleaned or dusted with a soft damp cloth. Again, wipe in the direction of the grain. If you chose to use a spray or cream furniture polish, be sure to put the product on the cloth and not directly on your wood furniture.

WHAT TO EXPECT WITH WOOD FURNITURE: Seasonal cracks, knots, wormholes and variations in wood graining are a normal characteristic of gorgeous wood furniture. Because wood is a natural product, stain variations either on the same piece or from piece to piece, should be expected. This occurs because each piece of wood takes the stain a just little differently. Wood products purchased together, tend to be very close, but wood purchased from different lots or at a later date may have a color and/or finish variation. All wood tends to darken over time as it is exposed to any light. This is a natural quality of wood and it enhances the exquisite beauty of the wood; Because of this darkening, we do not recommend that you permanently rest objects on exposed surfaces during the first two or three weeks. As the wood is darkening according to the unique light in your home, any object left in the same place for even a few days may show a lighter color beneath. After this “break-in” you may leave objects in place since the color development phase will be complete. *This break in period applies mostly to solid wood furniture particularly if it is finished in natural or lighter tone.

WHAT ABOUT DISTRESSING: Some wood furniture finishes are lightly to heavily distressed. As a result you may notice marks that may differ from the marks on the floor model. These marks are randomly done by the manufacturer, and they help to create an aged and antiqued appearance. No two of these hand finished pieces are exactly the same.

NEW FURNITURE ODOR: Just like a shiny new car, your beautiful new furniture may have a “new car,” better known as a “new furniture” smell. These odors are normal and caused by the various materials used in its construction. Since items remained boxed and/or wrapped for protection in our warehouse until your delivery is loaded onto our truck, your furniture just needs some time to air out. These mild “new furniture” odors will dissipate over time.

HAND MADE ITEMS:  Your new wood furniture is largely or in some cases, entirely hand made. Therefore, some variations from the floor models may occur. There may be some very slight variations in dimensions. Also, because these are hand hand made items, the finish and or/color may vary from floor models, as discussed above.

OTHER INFORMATION OF NOTE: All units that contain doors are pre-leveled during prep. If the doors are not level in your house, it may be that your surface is uneven. Furniture leveling wedges are available at most hardware stores and should fix this problem. Please remember that if you alter your wood furniture in any way, you void any warranty and Barbo’s reserves the right to deny service to any and all altered pieces.

 

FABRIC UPHOLSTERY INFORMATION AND MAINTENANCE TIPS

HOW TO AVOID DAMAGE FROM SUN AND HEAT: If possible, avoid placing fabric upholstery in direct sunlight or near extreme heat. To do so may cause uneven and/or premature fading or premature fabric and/or foam deterioration. Fabric fading is not warrantied by Barbo’s or by upholstery manufactures.

HOW TO KEEP YOU UPHOLSTERY LOOKING FRESH: Even though you will eventually see some core compression and the fabric may develop “comfort” wrinkles as you settle in to your new furniture, you can keep your furniture looking as fresh as possible. All loose cushions should be turned and pillows fluffed regularly to ensure even wear of fabrics and foams on your new upholstery. Also, you may consider regular vacuuming to remove debris and to help keep fabrics fresh. However, it is not advisable to vacuum down filled cushions. Use a soft brush or whisk broom instead.

WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT FABRICS: Every fabric is different and therefore will have different inherent characteristics that make it unique and beautiful. Some fabrics, especially crushed velvets, microsuedes and polysuedes can have color variations caused by the angle of the light hitting the surfaces. Also, many fabrics will develop pilling with use. Just like a cozy sweater, these are just the fabrics shedding excess fibers and it is perfectly normal. A fabric shaver can easily remove excess pills from your fabrics. Also, keep in mind that fabrics are dyed by lots, and as in any handmade item, some variations in color and shade can occur from dye lot to dye lot. The overall comfort may also feel different from the floor model that you sampled. This is caused because every piece of upholstery needs time to “break in” and if you chose a different fabric than the floor sample piece that you tried, it may affect the overall comfort of the piece as some fabrics are softer or have more give than other fabrics.  Some, but not all, upholstery companies may warranty the fabric for one year against manufacturer’s defects. Please be aware that if you allow any animal on your upholstery at any time, it voids any and all fabric warranties. Please refer to the warranty card(s) on your new upholstery for specific manufacturer’s warranties.

HAND MADE ITEMS:  Your new upholstery is largely or in some cases, entirely hand made. Therefore, some variations from the floor models may occur. There may be some very slight variations in dimensions. Also, because these are hand upholstered items, some slight unevenness in welts, skirts, or fabric patterns may occur. This is part of the beauty of having a hand upholstered item. Arm caps, if provided or purchased separately, are made by the manufacturer from excess fabric, so the fit may vary slightly from piece to piece and the patterns may not line up on your upholstery exactly.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION:  Please do not allow anyone to jump on your new furniture; to do so may damage interior components and may void your warranty. Also do not sit on the arms as these are not designed to support a full body weight. Stains and spills on your new upholstery are not covered unless you purchased the stain protection warranty. Please note that if you alter your upholstered furniture in any way, you void any warranty and Barbo’s reserves the right to deny service to any and all altered pieces.

FABRIC SLEEP SOFA INFORMATION: Sleep sofas are a wonderful purchase for extra sleeping space for guests, but they are not designed or meant to be used daily as a bed. Usage of this kind is considered excessive, and will cause the sleep sofa to wear out prematurely. Excessive use of this kind is not covered under warranty. Sleep sofa mattresses are warrantied for normal use for a period of one year from the date of pickup or delivery. Also, it is not advisable to leave sheets on the sleep sofa mattress when not in use.  Remember, sleep sofa mattresses are specially designed to fold, so creases at the fold lines are normal. Also, just like upholstery that “breaks in,” sleep sofa mattresses will compress and soften with time. Sleep sofa mechanisms are made up of many metal moving parts. Some creaking or similar noises may occur as these parts move.

LEATHER INFORMATION AND MAINTENANCE TIPS

HOW TO AVOID DAMAGE FROM SUN AND HEAT: If possible, avoid placing leather in direct sunlight or near extreme heat. To do so may cause uneven and/or premature fading or premature leather and/or foam deterioration. Leather fading is not warrantied by Barbo’s or by leather manufactures.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR LEATHER:  Leather is a natural product that breathes and has many unique characteristics.  It is recommended that the consumer should apply a leather protection cream to aniline leathers before use and again every three months following the directions on the bottle. All leathers should have their moisture restored twice a year by using a leather conditioner, again following the directions on the bottle. Pay particular attention to the head rests, arms and seats as these areas receive the most body contact. Keep materials such as bleach, paint, nail polish and remover away from your leather. On finished leather, you may attempt to clean spills immediately with a soft, damp cloth. Aniline leather may require a special cleaner. However, on any leather, particularly  aniline or other unprotected leathers, not all stains from spills and/or hair/body oils can be removed completely, instead they become part of the leather. These add to the well worn look, charm and uniqueness of beautiful leathers. PLEASE BE AWARE that excessive oils, particularly hair and skin oils from someone who is taking medication, can crack, stain, or discolor leathers and leather finishes. Therefore, we recommend the use of protective covers for the headrest and arms of any leather seating item as this type of damage is not covered by any warranty.

WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT LEATHERS: Leather’s natural characteristics can sometimes cause dye lot variations from leather or floor samples. Also, leather may have unique marks, scars or wrinkles that were a part of the animal’s hide. These unique characteristics are all apart of the beauty of real leather furniture. Some, but not all, leather companies may warranty the leather for one year against manufacturer’s defects. Please be aware that if you allow any animal on your leather furniture at any time, it voids any and all leather warranties. Please refer to the warranty card(s) on your new leather furniture for specific manufacturer’s warranties.
