Avoid pressure or machine washing as this may cause the inside structures to rust, which can interfere with proper operations and create moisture in the upholstery. Disinfect with mild bactericides. Lubricate moving parts occasionally to ensure optimal operation.

You will also find the user’s manual at the bottom of each of our product’s page.
