Care and Maintenance
Wood displays different grain patterns depending on which way they are cut – for example, the ‘medullary ray’ which can appear on oak furniture is a mark of good quality timber – these are just characteristics of the natural beauty of the wood. Wood veneers also allow distinctive patterns to be created on some surfaces, such as table tops and drawer fronts by the way slivers are arranged.
All timber and veneer surfaces will change colour and mellow over time. New furniture will initially vary in shade from items that have been previously purchased.
How to care for your wood furniture
Dust with a clean, dry lint free cloth. Frequent dusting will remove abrasive build up, which can damage the finish over time.
Spray polishes are best avoided as they contain silicones which may spoil the furniture’s surface when building up over time.
Make sure all surfaces are protected from heat and liquids by mats and coasters. Wipe up spills immediately and ensure that a mat or pad is placed under paper if you are writing. Our furniture will endure most temperatures in the home but it is best to avoid placing furniture next to heat sources such as radiators or fires. Be particularly careful with solid wood as the lack of humidity caused by home heating can cause damage such as warping.
Never drag furniture when moving it. Always lift it. Periodically check all fixings to ensure none have come loose. Re-tighten when necessary. Please take care when handling or moving the furniture as careless handling may cause damage or injury. Furniture can be dangerous if incorrectly assembled. Assembly should be carried out by a competent person. No liability will be accepted for damage or injury caused by incorrectly installed or assembled furniture. It is recommended that before moving a heavy object to a new location it is completely dis-assembled to avoid personal injury or damage to the furniture. Please be careful to retain all fittings when doing this. ( For fully or partial assemble items ).
Never tilt the chair.
Ensure the chair is always placed firmly on the ground. Regularly check leg attachment and retighten screws as necessary. Do not use chair if legs are unstable. Please check fixings and tighten as required.
- Retain these instructions for future reference.
