Caring for your furniture
All furniture types require care once bought to keep it looking as fresh and lasting as long as possible.
- Use a dusting or soft dry cloth for wax polished or hard lacquered pieces
- Use beeswax a couple times a year for waxed furniture, this will help maintain its shine
- Spray polishes can be used but try to stay clear of those with silicones as these types can harm the furniture surface
- Always use placemats when placing a heated item on a surface and immediately wipe dry any spillages to avoid a permanent stain
- When working on a surface, use a pad beneath the paper to avoid imprinting the furniture
- Natural light will alter the colour of furniture over time. To slow this process you can rotate and move the item so that it is not always in direct sunlight. Placing items close to radiators or fires will also damage the material over time
- Central heating or air conditioning can cause wood to warp over time due to the lack of humidity
- To reduce the chance of weakening the joints of a furniture piece always carry the item to its destination with the help of someone else. Do not drag the item; This could also mark your flooring
- Glass and plastic: Do not use anything abrasive. Soapy water and a cloth tends to do the trick.
