Show Your Tables Some Love

posted by Custom Craftworks on September 13, 2019

First impressions matter. Clients pay attention to details, and upon first glance they will notice if your upholstery looks clean and well cared for, or if it appears tattered and stained and in disrepair.

Showing your equipment some tender loving care will pay off in the long run because taking extra care ensures a long and productive service life. Since you have made an investment in purchasing a quality massage table, it is important to keep it clean and in good repair for many years of use, and satisfied customers.

So, how do you properly care for your tables? 

After Each Patient...

Clean your table with a mild cleaning solution. 

• Using a solution of 10% mild household liquid dish soap and warm water applied with a soft, damp cloth work best. This ensures no overuse of chemicals and will keep upholstery colors vibrant.
• After cleaning with mild dish soap solution, rinse with clean water and thoroughly dry.

For Stickiness or Stains...

• Make a solution of Fantastik® and water OR Formula 409® and water [1:1 ratio]

• Use a water dampened cloth and rub and dab gently until stain lifts.
Rinse with clean water and dampened cloth.

For Difficult Stains... 

• Dampen a soft [white] cloth with a solution of household bleach and water [10% bleach: 90% water].

• Rub gently and rinse with a water-dampened cloth until bleach concentration is gone.

Try a Disinfecting Wipe

• An easy alternative to mixing solutions is the disinfectant wipe called Protex Ultra Disinfectant Wipes.

  • They are alcohol, bleach, and solvent-free

Many Pivotal Health customers use these wipes with satisfied results.

What NOT to Use

  • Do not use improper cleaning agents that crack, dry out and destroy your vinyl.
  • Using the wrong cleaning agents can result in a VOIDED warranty.
  • Do not use any cleaning agents that contain alcohol, harsh chemicals or abrasives.

When in doubt, give us a call!

For Linens

Custom Craftworks offers a variety of linens and accessories to create a comfy and cozy spa experience for your customers and keep your table protected. Made with 100% cotton, these high-quality flannel sheets are double brushed for extra softness and are easy to clean and care for in the case that stains occur from lotions, creams and other products.

  • Wash in cold water on the gentle cycle to avoid friction
  • Add one cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle and DO NOT USE detergent
  • Adding vinegar will allow the fiber to expand creating softness and will preserve the long-lasting color
  • If using a front-loading washing machine, use the extra water setting
  • Tumble dry on warm or use medium heat on a gentle setting or remove from dryer while sheets are still slightly damp
  • DO NOT USE dryer sheets as they cause friction allowing the flannel to pill over time.

What If I Need Replacement Parts?

Even our quality-built tables need a replacement part or two once in a while. Over time, parts can be worn, lost or damaged, so it is good to know Custom Craftworks has options. Please contact our helpful customer service department with your questions or concerns.
