Care of Coated Wood Surfaces
Furniture that has been made to last can very quickly get a “used” appearance. Quality wood furniture must be taken care of properly in order to keep its beauty. Due to its many properties, wood has always been used in the making of furniture all over the world. Each tree is an individual piece of nature which keeps its own character in strength, structure and sensitivity to light and moisture. Wood can change its character with time.
Tips to follow are:
- Moisture is the worst enemy of all wooden furniture, so all spilt liquid should be wiped away at once.
- Tabletops should be protected against heat and also against wet or colored objects. Always protect the surface when using sharp tools.
- Furniture made for indoor use should never be used outdoors. In order to keep the color of the wood, direct sunlight should be avoided as much as possible.
- Never put furniture directly against a heater or radiator.
The coated surface should be cleansed with a dampened cloth and mild soap and water. The surface should then be wiped down with a dry cloth to remove excess moisture. Other cleaning compounds exist but may contain alkaline agents which will adversely affect the coated surface. Household polishes can be used on an infrequent basis. Products containing silicone are moisture and dirt resistant, but may hinder future lacquering.
