“Australasia has one of the most damaging sunlight conditions in the world.”
Last month in this article we addressed how to keep your drapery mould free. If you didn’t read it, you can find it on the previous ‘trends’ post.
This month we will look at the other and perhaps more problematic issue and that is soft furnishings sun protection (If we ever get any sun again).
Charles Parsons Sun Smart – SUN DAMAGE & SUN FADING
- Australasia has one of the most damaging sunlight conditions in the world and this is the cause of premature fading and product damage.
- All Soft Furnishings can be damaged by sunlight if they are exposed to either direct or reflective UV light for an extended period of time.
- Soft Furnishings must be adequately protected from direct or reflective sunlight or damage will occur. Textile suppliers and mills will not validate claims for damage caused by excessive sunlight.
- Charles Parsons strongly recommends the use of Sun Screens, Blinds or Linings to reduce the damage caused by direct sunlight.
- Natural yarns such as Cotton or Linen are more easily damaged than man-made yarns such as Polyester or Acrylic yarns.
