Caring for your product
Care and maintenance of wood furniture
- Dust your furniture with a lint-free cloth in the direction of the wood grain. Do this often as dust if left can have an abrasive, sandpaper like effect on your furniture
- Use a dab of mild dishwashing detergent on your cloth when tackling more stubborn marks caused by food and drink. Make sure you dry the surface well afterwards
- Solid woods can be polished a couple of times a year or when you feel the furniture is dry and needs it. We suggest a dab of Woodoc liquid furniture wax. Use sparingly, a little goes a long way.
Dos and don'ts
- Do use coasters to avoid water rings
- Do use placemats to protect the surface from heat
- If you spill any liquid, do wipe this up as soon as possible. If left on a wood veneer, liquids can seep through and loosen the glue from the surface. Don’t use a sponge as this will spread the liquid. Instead, use a paper towel or a clean dishcloth
- Don’t use aerosol spray polishes on your furniture
- Don’t use any kind of abrasive cleanser or cloth
- If exposed to direct sunlight over long periods of time, the colour of your wood furniture can fade a little. This is easy to prevent by not placing your wooden furniture in front of windows or in direct sunlight. If that is not an option due to the layout of your room, you can always protect your furniture by using blinds, curtains or UV screens / films. You can also move the items on your furniture around every now and again so that the light is evenly spread.
- Be careful when sweeping or vacuuming ensuring that you don’t bump the edges of the furniture
