Caring for your product
Care and maintenance of veneered and solid wood furniture
- Dust furniture with a slightly damp soft lint-free cloth. Wipe dry with a dry soft 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 afterwards
- A few times a year, when you feel the furniture is dry and needs it, apply a high quality furniture polish with a clean soft cloth. We suggest a dab of Woodoc liquid furniture wax. Be warned, a little goes a very long way so use sparingly.
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, liquids can seep through the veneer 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 veneer furniture can be subject to fading. 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 design or layout of your room, you can always protect your veneer with blinds, curtains or UV screens and 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
