Caring For Your Table's Upholstery featured image

Day in and day out, your  table will endure beatings from multiple bodies. To sustain such use, your table must remain in the best possible condition. No matter how valuable your equipment, it is important to do everything possible to ensure a long life

No matter how expensive your table may be, chances are, it won't matter much to your patients. When patients walk in, the first thing they are going to pay attention to is the part they lay on: the upholstery. Does it look clean? Is the upholstery tattered or stained? 

By properly taking care of your table's upholstery, you will ensure your table has a long life!

After Each Patient...FMST-Tools_-LAST-Table.jpg

Clean your table with a mild cleaning solution. 

• Solutions of 10% mild household liquid dish soap and warm water work best. This ensures no over use of chemicals and will keep upholstery colors vibrant
• After cleaning with solution, rinse with clean water and thoroughly dry

For Stains...

• Make a solution of Fantastik® and water OR Formula 409® and water [1:1 ratio]
• Use a water dampened cloth, rub and dab gently until stain lifts
Rinse with clean water and dampened cloth 

Difficult Stain? 

• Dampen a soft [white] cloth with a solution of household bleach and water [10% bleach/ 90% water]
• Rub gently and rinse with a water dampened cloth until bleach concentration is gone

Try a Disinfecting Wipe

• An easy alternative to mixing solutions is the disinfectant wipe called Protex Ultra Disinfectant WipesMany Pivotal Health customers use these wipes.

What NOT to Use

• Using improper cleaning agents that crack, dry out and destroy your vinyl will result in a VOIDED warranty. 
• Do not use any cleaning agents that contain alcohol, harsh chemicals or abrasives.
