Performance Fabrics
Many fabrics in the Best Home Furnishings line are considered performance fabrics. These fabrics feature the easy to clean ability and are stain resistant or moisture repellent. Performance fabrics work great in high traffic areas and are perfect for families with children or pets. Micro deniers, suede Microfibers or nylon flocks, and cotton fabric with water-based liquid repellent are the different types of performance fabrics Best carries in the line. These types of fabrics have the ability to repel liquid. If a spill does occur, a water-based liquid will bead up on the surface allowing more time for stain removal before the liquid has a chance to penetrate the fiber. When you see our performance logo this means we believe in the cleanability of our product.

OptiClean Fabrics

Opti Clean is a performance fabric system encasing every fiber to ensure cleanability, providing a two-level stain protection. At the first level, spills are repelled and prevented from entering the fabric so stains are easily removed. Should stains penetrate the fabric's surface or go unnoticed, the second barrier with a releasing property prevents most stains from becoming permanent.

To clean, simply blot the spill with a white cotton cloth or paper towel and the stain should disappear. For a more residual stain use mild soap and water, an work in a circular motion starting from the outside of the stain moving towards the center.

*Limited availability in Maine. Click swatch details below for more information.

Uplifting Comfort Performance Covers:

Senior living and other high-performance residential environments shouldn't feel institutional. Historically, only the harshest "super fabrics" were considered for these settings. Alta retires this notion with the next generation of fabric technology that enables soft, warm, and beautiful fabric to perform in the most demanding environments. For heavy-duty or high-traffic seating, Alta ramps up performance with a total liquid barrier, antimicrobial, and repellency to fluids and oil-based stains. Exceptional cleanability comes standard with all Alta applications. Whatever the space, soft and comfortable textiles are easy to maintain and tough as nails, without looking for feeling that way. After all, everyone should be able to love where they live.

Valero Performance Covers

Valero is a high-performance traditional leather grain vinyl used in residential and healthcare settings. The surface is impermeable to moisture providing the fluid barrier, and with proper cleaning, not only aids in reducing the number of infectious agents, but also serves to minimize the potential transfer of microorganisms from one person or object to another. The Center for Disease Control, as well as independent hospital studies, validate vinyl-coated fabrics as the covering of choice in healthcare seating.

Spradling, the mill of the vinyl product, has developed new, unique, and exclusive technologies that significantly improve the product’s wear, stain-resistance, and chemical-resistance performance.

Valero does not contain flame retardants and complies with Prop 65 requirements. Valero currently only available on the Kenley Lift Recliner.
