Our answer to COVID-19
In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it is vital that we ensure adequate ventilation of spaces, proper cleaning, correct social distancing and impeccable personal hygiene.

In addition to this, there are a number of additional suggestions regarding the Arper products that you will have in your stores. First and foremost, with regard to proper sanitisation, we ask you to adhere to the instructions issued by your government in order to make sure you are using the specific recommended products.

In terms of product cleaning, meanwhile, we recommend that you follow the instructions in the swatch book which can be downloaded from the website by visiting the collection page.

If the products you are using contain any of the substances featured in the table in higher concentrations or in combination with other active ingredients (this information can be found on the label), we recommend that you test the product by applying a droplet of the product in a discreet area and wait until it has completely dried in order to check that it has not resulted in any alterations to the surface.

Generally speaking, in order to disinfect wool-based fabrics, the use of isopropyl alcohol in concentrations of between 70 and 85% is recommended. You are advised to avoid the use of detergents including chlorine or bleach.

In the event that an infection is recorded, we advise that you consult the technical data packs and adhere to recommendations from individual fabric producers as regards decontamination processes.

With regard to upholstery, as things stand, it is thought that the risk of contracting COVID-19 via contact with fabric is very low. Studies show that the virus cannot survive inside, in dry conditions such as those typical for the use of these products, for more than 48 hours. It is already good practice in terms of disease prevention to clean fabrics every day. This can be done using a vacuum cleaner with special accessories.

In terms of cleaning fabrics made from polyester or Trevira CS, disinfection can be done using isopropyl alcohol in concentrations of between 70 and 85%. Cleaning may be carried out using a cloth dampened with warm water (up to 60°) and bleach diluted to a concentration of 0.1 to 0.5%.
