Furniture Cleaning Chemicals
Quality furniture is a significant investment expected to last for generations. To maintain its beauty and help it last, furniture needs the right care. But with regular care, your furniture will last much longer, providing years of enjoyment to you.
TO PROTECT AND CARE FOR YOUR FURNITURE, WE SUGGEST THE FOLLOWING:
- Avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight, as sunlight causes fading.
- Avoid extreme changes in temperature by arranging furniture away from radiators, heat and air vents and air conditioning units.
- Avoid placing plastic or rubber materials (lamp bases, notebooks, placemats, etc.) on your furniture, as certain plastics contain ingredients that may damage the finish.
- Periodically rotate accessories on furniture so they do not sit in the same spot all the time.
- Use pads, cloth or felt to protect the furniture surface from plastic, rubber, hot dishes, beverages, bookends, flowerpots and vases.
- Clean up spills immediately. Use a blotting rather than a wiping action. Water left over a long period of time will cause white spots in the finish. Alcohol, perfume, after-shave and medications can cause severe finish damage.
- Use a protective pad when writing with a ballpoint pen on the furniture surface.
- Lift and place objects rather than dragging them across the furniture surface.
- Avoid placing furniture directly under windows.
CLEANING AND POLISHING YOUR FURNITUREWe recommend dusting frequently with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth. Clean the surface by rubbing in the direction of the grain. We recommend polishing your furniture approximately every six months, using a clean, soft, lint-free cloth and rubbing the polish in the direction of the grain. Be especially careful to avoid scratching high gloss finishes by using a feather duster or very soft, clean cloths and wiping with minimal pressure.

NORMAL UPHOLSTERY BEHAVIORNormal softening and puddling of the foam and fibers in seat and back cushions, should not be considered a defect, nor confused with abnormal wear and loss of resiliency in cores and filling materials. From time to time, your seats and back cushions will need "fluffing up" as any upholstered furniture does and should be regulated with use.
FLOOR MAT FOR CASTERED ITEMSWe highly recommend the use of an appropriate floor mat under our Castered Items. Failure to use such floor mats will result in caster failure and will void any claims to floor or carpet damage on all makes and models of flooring. (Wood, Tile, Linoleum, etc.)
