Furniture Care Guide
Reclaimed wood is a fantastic choice for your home, not only is it beautiful, but it is also practical. We finish our wood in a specialist, but minimal way to ensure that maintenance is easy and carefree.
- Keep your item out of direct sunlight. Sun damages the wood and its finish with harmful UV rays, so these are best kept to a minimum.
- Keep your item away from direct sources of heat and humidity, to avoid cracks and splits.
- Do not heat the room that the item is in for at least 1 week, and then increase the temperature gradually for 10 days.
- Try to avoid extreme temperature changes in its first month of being in your home.
- Do not use solvent based cleaners on the wood or steel, as this can change the finish.
- Daily Cleaning should be done with a soft cloth and a gentle natural cleaner.
- Weekly cleaning using a beeswax based polish - We recommend Aristo wax wood silk for both finish and scent.
Spillages should be removed with a cloth as soon as possible. Most spillages should not cause a problem if removed promptly, however there will be times where this cannot be avoided, and so thankfully we have made it as easy as possible to get your item back to looking its best.
- Wipe away the spillage
- If a stain is present, try to remove with a more abrasive cleaner on the spot. If this works, then apply your wax finish as detailed below.
- If the stain does not go with a more abrasive chemical cleaner, then we recommend using 120 grit sandpaper on the area until the stain is removed - do not be alarmed, the wax will be removed by this and the spot will look very light when you have finished - this is normal, apply your wax finish as detailed below in products and finishes.
