Wood Finish Care

Routine care

Please reference these easy-to-follow Guidelines whenever you have a question.
  

·         -  Clean all surfaces frequently with a water dampened soft cloth, moving the cloth with the grain.

·         - Immediately remove any liquids that come in contact with wood surfaces with a blotting action.

 

·         -  Lift objects to move them, never pull them across the finished surface.

 

·         -  For an additional safeguard, use a protective desk Pad. This single item could ensure a lasting finish by protecting your furniture from possible damage caused by pens and sharp objects.

 

·         -  For repair of minor surface scratches, rub with #0000 steel wool and a rubbing compound. Rubbing compound could usually be purchased at any hardware store. Always rub in direction of the  grain, never cross-grain.
 

·         -  Avoid exposure of furniture to extremes of heat and cold, or to wide humidity variances.

 

·         -  Avoid exposure of furniture to strong sunlight, the wood underneath the finish may change color from prolonged exposure to sunlight.

 

·         -  Avoid exposure of furniture to harsh solvents (nail polish remover, Acetates, etc.) as it will cause finish deterioration.

 

·         -  If using a protective glass top, place spacer pads under the glass top to allow the wood to breath.

Leather Care

Leather furniture looks elegant, and is easy to maintain.

Leathers can be cleaned with a mild solution of soap and water and dried with a soft cloth. Leather is a natural material that is porous and not waterproof.

Stain-causing substances, food, or other protein-based components should not be spilled on leather as they may cause permanent discoloration.

Upholstery & Fabric Care

Fabric cleaning

The most effective way to keep upholstery fabrics clean is to give them frequent vacuum cleaning.

Spot removal is usually difficult and not always satisfactory. The safest method is to use a solution of mild liquid detergent dissolved in a quart of lukewarm water.
The soiled areas should be brushed gently by hand and wetted no more than necessary. Commercial spot removers should always be tested on an less visible spot as they may bleach the fabric or leave residue rings.

Fabric protection

Fabric protection helps to increase the useful life of upholstered furniture by protecting fabrics from soil and stains. Some fabric protections are mill applied and others can be applied on site.
