CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF WOOD

Looking after your wooden furniture is not difficult. Here are just a few guidelines:
  • Moisture is the worst enemy for furniture, so any spilt liquid should be wiped off immediately.
  • The surface of sideboards and tables must be protected from heat as well as from wet and coloured objects.
  • Furniture intended for indoor use only should always be placed in rooms with normal temperature and humidity (16-25 degrees C with a humidity of 40-70%)
  • Furniture should not be placed directly against hot-air blowers or radiators
  • If your wooden furniture is unfortunately damaged, it is necessary to seek professional advice.

CLEANING

Wooden furniture should be wiped clean with a dry cloth or a cloth that has been firmly wrung in clean water. Afterwards it is important to wipe with a clean, dry cloth.

MAINTENANCE

Dirty surfaces can be cleaned with a cloth placed in soapy water (a teaspoon of detergent per litre of water) and then firmly wrung. Afterwards it is important to wipe the furniture with a dry, clean cloth. Never use furniture polish that contains Silicon, it is not good for your furniture.

MAINTENANCE OF SOAP-FINISHED FURNITURE

In order to quickly obtain a surface that is resistant to dirt and moisture you must treat your new piece of furniture with soap before using it and then once a week afterwards for 3 or 4 weeks. After that period, you may treat the item of furniture with soap when required.

REFINISHING OF LACQUERED SURFACES

This treatment should be done only in a professional furniture shop as it requires sanding and relacquering.

IN GENERAL, YOU SHOULD ALWAYS FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER’S GUIDELINES FOR CARING FOR YOUR FURNITURE.
