The product(s) supplied are to be used for the purpose and in the manner for which they were designed. Most manufacturers include care and maintenance advice with their products, which should be read and followed.
Cleaning - With the day to day cleaning of the furniture, it’s pretty simple all you need is a damp cloth rung out so there is hardly any moisture left on the cloth or a dry cloth. What you DON’T want to do is add moisture to the timber with a wet cloth, this could wrap the timber and could damage any lacquer beyond repair.
Spillages – Any spillages should be cleaned up right away, again as with the cleaning you DON’T want to add any moisture into the timber.
Maintenance – Depending on the finish you have, there are two main ways of maintaining your furniture. The first is oiled finish, the timber will generally be dipped in a vat of oil to coat and treat the timber giving it a warm oiled finish. Although there are many different opinions on when and how often to oil your furniture, our recommendations are that you oil your table a minimum of twice a year. To keep the timber nourished and protected.
The second and most common is lacquered finish, the timber will be coated in a lacquer to protect it. Although there will be retailers that will tell you, that you need to wax your lacquered furniture to protect it from splitting and cracking this is not true we recommend that you wax your furniture using a good quality wax to protect it from minor scratches and minor spillages.
Please avoid furniture aerosol base polishes, this will dry out the timber.
