What you’re covered for

Stains (including but not limited to) those caused by food, human and pet bodily fluids, drinks, pen and ink, nail polish, lipstick, blood, acids, bleach and corrosives, cosmetics, glues, waxes, chewing gum, paint, crayons, fake tan and hair dyes.

Accidental Damage including rips, tears, cuts and burns.


Valuable Financial Protection

Replacing a single panel on your sofa could easily cost over $400. But with a fabric or leather furniture care warranty, you can make as many claims over five years as you have genuine accidents, up to the original purchase price of your furniture (T&Cs apply*).
