CARING FOR YOUR FURNITURE
Dust frequently with a cloth that attracts rather than scatters dust. Dining Tables should be left extended for the first few months to avoid uneven shading. Any objects on the surface need to be moved regularly to avoid shading Lamps etc. Never leave spillages. Remove them immediately with a blotting action. For protection against heat, quality tablemats and cloths should always be used. Take care that no area of the plate or dish overhangs the tablemat. When writing, a protective mat should be used to protect the surface from marking. Furniture will endure most temperatures in the modern home. However it should be positioned as far away from radiators, direct sunlight or other forms of direct heat sources, as possible. Avoid extremes in humidity. This can cause wood to warp and loosen glues. Keep furniture away from air conditioning units. Small tables should not be used for sitting or standing on. It is always advisable to level furniture when placing it. This will ensure wardrobe doors are level and removes undue pressures on joints. Never drag furniture always lift it.
Metal Handles and Fittings
Metal polish should not be used as the fittings have their own protective lacquer to prevent tarnishing.
A gentle wipe with a lint free cleaning cloth, in the direction of the grain, is all that is required to maintain the appearance of the lacquered wood.
CARING fOR THE FABRIC IN YOUR FURNITURE
Vacuum clean your fabric on a low setting with a soft brush regularly, as accumulated dirt will accelerate wear.Avoid sharp objects that may snag the fabric or scratch the surface. All fabric should not be exposed to direct sunlight, as this will cause colours to fade.
If in any doubt please consult a specialist dry cleaner. Treat all stains and spillages immediately. Test any cleaning in a small, non visible area first. Soak up any spills with an absorbent cloth with a blotting action. Always work from the edge of the stain inwards to avoid spreading. Do not use an abrasive cloth or rub excessively.
If in any doubt please consult a specialist dry cleaner.
Water based stains (including ketchups, soft drinks, wine and alcoholic beverages) should be removed using a reputable upholstery shampoo. Use a clean absorbent cloth. Use mixture sparingly. Work from the outside of the stain to prevent spreading. Rinse with warm water.
Oil based stains (including salad dressings, butter and greasy foods) should be removed with a spot remover containing only cleaning fluid. Do not soak the fabric. Dab the stain from the outer edge towards the centre of the stain.
