Soft Home Furnishings Testing

     With growing demand for high quality products and increasing governmental regulations, testing of soft home furnishings is essential to minimize risk and protect the interests of both soft home furnishing manufacturers and consumers.

     Premier Testing Services India’s regulatory testing services (including new CPSIA regulations) support retailers, manufacturers, distributors and suppliers in the testing of soft home furnishings from cushions to mattresses.

   We have unparalleled expertise on all global regulations to assist customers with new eco-friendly alternatives/certifications, care labelling instructions, and other needs. We offer the following testing solutions for soft home furnishings:

Fiber Identification – Premier Testing Services India’s experienced technicians accurately identify fibers and fiber blends for customers who import soft home furnishings products into countries that require fiber identification labels that identify the fiber type and percentage of fiber components and use fiber composition to classify quota categories.

Flammability Testing – It is important to note that soft home furnishings have flammability regulations that differ from the apparel regulations and to pay special attention to regulations established for upholstery, rugs and carpets.

Care Label Instructions – For countries that have mandatory or voluntary standards for care label instructions that apply to soft home furnishing products, Premier Testing Services India conducts testing to determine the most appropriate consumer care conditions for the tested products, including:

Colorfastness to washing or dry cleaning

Dimensional stability

Appearance retention

Ironing, if needed
