TIPS TO HELP PREVENT THE NEED FOR REPAIRS

  • Avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight or directly under windows.
     

  • Arrange your furniture so that it is not adjacent to heating or air conditioning outlets.
     

  • Do not place plastic materials (lamp bases, notebooks, placemats, etc...) on your furnitureas certain plastics contain ingredients that may react with and damage the finish.
     

  • Periodically rotate your accessories (with proper felt or cloth backing) so that they do not remain in the same spot for extended periods.
     

  • Lift objects from the top when moving them, being careful not to let them drag across the finish.
     

  • Temporary protective padding is strongly recommended when using your furniture as a writing surface, especially when using a pencil or ballpoint pen.
     

  • Clean up spills quickly.  Water left over a prolonged period of time will cause white spots in the finish.  Alcohol, perfume, after-shave and certain medicines can cause sever finish damage.
     

  • Dust frequently with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth.  Clean the surface by rubbing in the direction of the grain of the wood.  We do not recommend polishes with silicone, due to the difficulty of removing residue if repair or refinishing becomes necessary.
     

  • Polish your furniture approximately every six months.  Use a clean, soft, lint-free absorbent cloth, rubbing the polish in the direction of the grain of the wood.
     

  • Some new finishes can take as long as 30 days to completely cure so we do not recommend placing any object(s) on an uncured surface.
     

  • Should wax ever drip on your wooden furniture, allow the wax to thoroughly dry.  CAREFULLY place a credit card under the wax, gently prying the wax upward.  Remove any remaining wax residue with a soft, lint-free cloth.
