ADVANTAGES OF USING SMACCHIA FABRICS FOR MY PET
At Riflessi we want to make your life easier, so your chairs can remain free from stains, scratches and smells from your household pets. We love animals too, and that’s why we’ve chosen a series of fabrics to make living with a pet easier and minimising their effects on your chairs.
Cats sometimes scratch upholstery fabric because they are attracted to its softness. The scratches cause rips or marks in leather and break the threads of woven fabric. But Smacchia fabric has a synthetic fibre covering that prevents claws from penetrating the weave, and therefore protects it against scratching. These collections have a physical barrier – a layer between the fabric weave and the external visible part of the fabric which prevents accidental snagging, not only caused by pets, but also by jeans rivets, zippers or rings.
Our fabric has a technology, which helps to remove normal household stains easily and quickly. In addition, with household pets in mind, the fabric has put through pet urine, fecal and blood tests, with outstanding stain removal results.
Due to their structure, Smacchia fabrics are antistatic fabrics, and tend to prevent hair and fur from sticking. But even if you don’t allow your pet to get on the chairs, some hair may be left around the upholstery. To remove this hair, you can use a damp cloth or a vacuum cleaner, although you can also try a lint roller.
If your pet uses the chairs continuously, this can cause bad odours. To avoid this, Smacchia recommends ventilating the room regularly, vacuuming the fabric regularly and using an air freshener if necessary.
