Furniture Care for timber products

For the longevity of your timber furniture, it is important that you follow these care instructions. For care of upholstered products, please refer to the product care label fixed to the underside of the product or contact the manufacture directly.

Cleaning:    We only recommend cleaning your timber furniture with a damp sponge and a mild detergent if required. Once the piece has been wiped clean it is important to wipe it dry with a soft cloth. Failing to do this may, in time, result in a build up of grime.

General Care:    Never place timber furniture in direct sunlight, over, under or in close proximity to heating and or air-conditioning vents. As timber is a natural product it will continually expand & contract. Failure to meet these requirements will result in moisture gain and or loss increasing the risk of excessive timber movement. Under no circumstances should timber surfaces be covered with glass or plastic for an extended period of time, this will cause the lacquered finish to sweat and potentially de-laminate.

Hot Items:        Never place scalding hot items directly on to any surface of your timber furniture. As a general guide, if an items too hot to hold in your hand, it's too hot to place on your timber surface. If you are in doubt, always use a coaster or similar covering to protect your timber surface.

Spills:                Never let liquids pool on any timber surface. Excessive dampness will result in seepage under the lacquer finish causing it to de-laminate. Spills must be cleaned up immediately with a damp cloth and dried with a soft towel.

Waxing:           We do not recommend using wax or silicon based polishes on your furniture as these products require continual upkeep. All timber furniture should be regularly dusted using a damp cloths and then dried with a soft towel.
