for homes with PETS
Health, Hygiene and Well-being
Bacteria and mites really do proliferate if you have pets at home.
But Safe Front is a fantastic ally against these organisms, which can cause allergies, especially in children and the elderly.
These collections have a physical barrier – a layer between the fabric loops and the top visible part of the fabric which prevents accidental snagging, not only caused by pets, but also by jeans rivets, zippers or rings.
The surfaces of these collections are completely smooth, which facilitates the removal of pet hairs from the fabric.

ADVANTAGES OF USING AQUACLEAN FABRICS FOR MY PET
At Aquaclean we want to make your life easier, so your sofa can remain free from stains, scratches and smells from your household pets. We love animals too, and that's why we've developed a series of collections to make living with a pet easier and minimising their effects on your sofa fabric.
Cats will sometimes scratch upholstery fabric because they are attracted to its softness. Its instinctive, and scratches will cause rips or marks in leather and break the threads of woven fabric. But Aquaclean fabric has a synthetic fibre covering that prevents claws from penetrating the loops in the fabric, and therefore protects it against scratching.
Due to their structure Aquaclean, fabrics are antistatic fabrics, and tend to prevent hair and fur from sticking. But even if you don't allow your pet to get on the sofa, some hair may be left around the bottom borders. To remove this hair, you can use a damp cloth or a vacuum cleaner, although you can also try a lint roller.
Our fabric incorporates Aquaclean Technology®, which helps to remove normal household stains easily and quickly. In addition, with household pets in mind, Aquaclean has put its fabric through pet urine, fecal and blood tests, with outstanding stain removal results.
If your pet uses the sofa continuously, this can cause bad odours. To avoid this, Aquaclean recommends ventilating the room regularly, vacuuming the fabric regularly and using an air freshener if necessary.
Traditional materials without any protection, are an easy target for pets, with their nails engaging the fibers which make up the fabric of the sofa, breaking, tearing and stretching the fibers as pets try to free their nails.
AQUACLEAN’S RECOMMENDED FABRICS
Aquaclean’s recommended materials have a protective coating developed with our innovative technology that behaves like an elastic and flexible barrier. Preventing pets nails from reaching the core fabric and fraying the fibers.
ADVICE FOR LIVING WITH A PET
Your sofa is the heart of your home, and pets can be very territorial, so you'll have to decide if you want your pet on your sofa! Cats may mark them, dogs will love jumping up on them. Pets sometimes have very different behaviour patterns, and you have to bear this in mind. The best thing you can do is to train your pet or pets to do what you really want them to do - or not to do!
Try placing or rubbing orange peel on your fabric, as the smell of citrus fruit is usually unpleasant for pets.
TRAIN YOUR PET
Buy a scratching post for your cat or cats and get them to use it. To achieve this, spray on some enticing catnip or valerian. They're sure to love it. And don't forget to praise them afterwards!
PET HYGIENE I
Trim your cat's claws regularly so they don't try to sharpen them on your sofa.
PET HYGIENE II
Brush your pet regularly. All hair you throw in the rubbish won't be left on your sofa!
Ensure good nutrition, as an inappropriate diet can cause excess hair loss. This will also prevent them from getting sick and give them improved quality of life.
