Professional Tips on Wooden Furniture

Regular Maintenance
1. Use a soft lint-free cloth to gently dust your furniture.
2. Use a clean, very slightly damp cloth to remove finger marks. The use of detergents is not recommended.
3. We do not recommend the use of silicon or spray polishes. They may leave a residue on the surface of your furniture that affects its appearance.
4. If your wood furniture has a lacquered easy care finish, daily dusting and the occasional wipe over with a clean, damp cloth followed by a dry duster will keep it looking good.
5. If your wood furniture has a waxed finish, use good quality natural beeswax and polish along the grain every 3 months. Use a clean duster to buff up and retain the natural beauty of your furniture.
6. If your wood furniture has an oiled finish you will need to ‘feed’ it with linseed oil every 3-4 months. Make sure you dispose of the cloths used safely.
7. Caring for furniture made from stone or travertine is straight forward. Wipe any marks or spills with a slightly damp cloth and then polish with a soft dry cloth.
8. In the event of an accidental spill, blot up the excess immediately.
9. Wooden products change colour with exposure to both natural and electric light. Rotate any ornaments to avoid patches of colour where the object has stood. Leave dining tables fully extended if possible, or expose the leaves to light so there are no vast colour differences between them and the table top.

10. When vacuuming your fabric or suede dining chairs use the soft furnishings attachment and low power. Alternatively use a soft brush to remove dust. If they are covered in leather, give them a wipe over with a damp cotton cloth. If you need to use soap make sure it is very mild and does not contain any harsh detergents.

Making It Last
1. Don’t rock backwards or stand on dining chairs.
2. When moving your furniture, lift it carefully. Dragging or pushing it will damage fixings and affect stability. You could scratch your floor, and strain yourself.
3. Don’t have your furniture too close to direct heat or an air conditioning unit and avoid changes in humidity. If the air is too damp as in steamy kitchen, solid wood will still absorb moisture.
