Micro-Suede is a man-made knit blend of polyester fibers almost a hundred times finer than human hair. While very similar to normal suede, Micro-Suede is softer and easier to clean. As a furniture upholstery, it is especially prized for its durability and resistance to dirt. Liquids bead on Micro-Suede, so spills are easily cleaned by wiping the fabric with a dry cloth. Rubbing water into the fabric can cause permanent staining, however, so gentle cleaning with rubbing alcohol is recommended. Stiff spots may form in Micro-Suede after cleaning, but this can usually be fixed by gently rubbing the surface with a soft-bristle brush.
A luxury fabric that has been manufactured for nearly 4,000 years in one form or another, velvet is composed of silk, cotton, or similar man-made fibers. It easily absorbs most dyes, which makes for more lustrous colors. Velvet is a fragile fabric and requires careful maintenance. We do not recommend this fabric for lift chair buyers with pets or small children.
Pride Mobility Quick Ship Fabrics
The most popular upholstery surfaces chosen by our customers for their Pride Mobility lift recliners are Pride Mobility's own Quick Ship fabrics. These are currently available in Moss, Marine, Wine, Wheat, and Taupe, Quick Ship fabrics are easy to apply to a base lift chair model, which allows the chair to ship more quickly after you place your order. Generally, if you choose to have your lift chair covered in a Quick Ship fabric selection, your order can be processed and shipped within 48 hours. Though the color selection is more limited than that of the more expensive fabrics, the range of offerings is wide enough to find a color that is sure to collaborate well with your existing decoration scheme.
Suede is made by splitting genuine leather to create a plush velvet-like fabric. It is susceptible to water damage and staining. Suede should always be cleaned with a dry sponge or specialized suede brush. It can also be treated with a silicon spray and then rubbed with sandpaper or an emery board; the silicon will make the fabric more resistant to water damage and soil build-up, and the sandpaper restores the softness of the material. Due to the delicate nature of suede fabric, we do not recommend suede upholstery for lift chair buyers with pets or small children.
Ultraleather offers the look and feel of leather, but is more durable than genuine hide upholstery. With a durability rating 13 times the industry standard for heavy-duty fabrics and built-in stain resistance, this water-repellent polyurethane upholstery is built to outlast the trials of an active, bustling lifestyle, such as wear-and-tear from pets and children. Most stains can be removed from your Ultraleather lift chair with the use of water, soap, and/or common alcohol-based cleaning solutions. Ultraleather is also highly resistant to temperature changes, remaining cool to the touch even when exposed to direct sunlight and resisting the stiffening and cracking of normal leather in cold weather. This upholstery can be easily disinfected without damaging the fabric by using a basic 5:1 water/bleach solution.
Ultrafabrics utilizes a number of production techniques which are specifically engineered to minimize the environmental impact of their fabrics. Ultraleather is free of formaldehyde and all other carcinogenic VOCs and POPs, and is manufactured using a process which recaptures 99% of all solvents, minimizing the carbon footprint of your lift chair and making Ultraleather a healthier choice for our planet and your family than traditional leather and vinyl upholstery.
Often referred to as faux leather, vinyl is a plastic resin made from chlorine and ethylene. It is non-breathable, which allows it to absorb and contain heat. Vinyl is an excellent alternative to genuine leather for the thrifty lift chair shopper. It is also fully recyclable.
