Wood is long lasting, especially when its qualities are properly exploited. Solid wood can not stand directly sunlight or directly heating, for example from a woodburning stov or to closely placed at a radiator. This can dry the wood and cause splits.
Daily care: Wipe of the table with a rag wrung out in clean water. Eventually wipe off the table with a dry rag.
Protect the table top from hot pots or things made of metal, which conducts the heat.
Use dish mats under bottles and glasses where condensation might occur and under hot objects.
Use cut resistant underlay when using sharp tools.
To avoid stains and other damage, liquids should be wiped away immediately.
First, sand lightly with 220 or 320 grit sandpaper; just enough to make the surface feel smooth. Never use steel wool, particularly on oak as it will react with the tannin and blacken it.
Once this is done, apply another a coat of soap (you need to be aware that the soap you need for this task is a natural soap, not bars) and wipe off the excess with a well wrung-out cloth.
Sand again to remove the grain that will have been raised during the first application and repeat. Let the soap dry and buff lightly with a clean lint free cloth.
Be careful not to wet any end-grain surfaces too heavily. End-grain surfaces suck up moisture at faster rates and this can lead to splitting.
Wipe off the furniture with a rag, which do not fluff. Before applying the oil, lightly rub the surface of the furniture with the sanding sponge.
Apply the oil from the care set using a clean white cloth or a sponge.wood.
Do never pour out the oil directly on the furniture.
Afterwards you wipe of the table with a dry rag. If the surface is scratched then you can grind with a grind sponge or grind paper grain 220 – 320 with a little oil along the grains.
Remember to dry off the table with a dry rag.
After use you have to put the rags into water before you throw them away due to danger of fire.
Caring for your leather furniture prolongs its life and keeps it looking attractive. Leather lasts much longer than other upholstery, and its good looks can not only be maintained, but improved over time.
Avoid placing your chair very close to heaters or fireplaces or in a spot that gets direct sun. Leather can dry, fade, stiffen and crack when placed close to heat sources.
For spills, immediately use a dry cloth to absorb and let it air-dry. It is important to absorb instead of wiping as you want to get all the moisture out instead of spreading it. Never soak the stain heavily with water. Never use harsh soap, cleaning solvents, detergents or ammonia to clean stains.
For grease stains, absorb excess grease with a clean dry cloth. The spot should gradually disappear into the leather after a short period of time. In case the stain remains, ask a professional leather specialist to clean the leather to avoid any potential damage to the leather itself.
Use a good leather conditioner every 6-12 month.
By normal use laminate is cleaned with a universal degreaser in warm water.
To remove stains use a concentrated cleanser and wipe off with a dry cloth afterwards. By use of more aggressive cleanser please try the cleanser on a less visible area first, to ensure that the laminate will not be discoloured.
After cleaning the table, then use a cloth wrung up in warm water to remove any film on the laminate.
Everyday cleaning of glass requires no more than wiping the surface with clean water. It is recommended that you use a sponge or a soft, fluff-free cloth.
Ordinary glass cleaner can be used to remove any grease marks (fingerprints, etc.). Do not use scouring agents, corrosive, acidic or alkaline cleaning agents, as these can attack the surface of the glass and cause scratches.
Excess water can be removed with a sponge or cloth. The glass can then be polished dry with a microfiber cloth.
If the glass surface is allowed to remain wet for longer periods of time, limescale residues may form. Therefore it is best to wipe up any liquids as quickly as possible.
Paper cord is a natural, cool, comfortable and durable material. It lasts for many years, but can be replaced or repaired by a skilled craftsman if necessary.
Never use harsh soaps or cleaning liquids on the paper cord seat as they can damage the material. The best option is to act quickly: immediately after spilling, use a damp cloth to wipe off the stain.
Be careful not to rub the liquid into the paper cord, but just carefully blot the affected area. Never use washing-up liquid on wicker.
Stain removal: For quick removal of contaminants on polished high-shine, matte chrome and aluminum surfaces, apply a glass cleaner with a clean, soft cloth and subsequently wipe the surface dry with a soft cloth.
For stainless steel, we recommend using a special stainless steel care spray, steel cleaner or detergent. Powder- coated surfaces should be cleaned with aqueous solutions made from pH-neutral (pH 5-8) deter- gents or cleaning products and soft, non-abrasive cloths, rags or industrial cotton batting.
Always clean metal surfaces gently and without scrubbing so that the surface is not scratched. Never use cleaners containing granular substances, acetic acid or citric acid.
To care for fabrics, simply hoover dust and lint regularly. Stain removal: Fresh stains can usually be removed quickly by wiping immediately with an absorbent, lint-free sponge or cloth. Start from the outer edge of the stain and work towards the centre to avoid creating a halo effect.
We recommend using normal household distilled water to prevent limescale residue from building up on dark fabrics after drying. Treatment of persevering stains: Brush dry stains lightly with a soft brush (such as a clothes brush). Depending on the type of stain, the use of solvents may be necessary. In such cases, it is essential to consult a professional. Under no circumstances should cover fabric surfaces be rubbed vigorously. Please be sure to consult a specialist before using any solvent-based cleaning product.
