Following the guidelines below will help to preserve the quality and finish.

Cleaning

Mild, weak detergent solution on a damp cloth followed by a dry cloth - moisture should not be left on the surface at any time

Spillage

Any spillages should be wiped up with a dry cloth straight away – whether hot or cold

V P L

Marks

Office equipment, faxes, calculators, telephones etc should be placed on a pad. Black rubber pads/feet on the underside may mark the surface

V P L

Scratches

Avoid any metal objects on the surfaces as they may scratch. Once a scratch appears it is not possible to remove

V P L

Solvents

Tippex, adhesives, nail varnish etc may damage the surface – avoid use of these materials

V P L

Heat

Do not place furniture against any heat source – this will dry out the wood and cause shrinking and splitting

V P L

Sunlight

Direct sunlight will increase the aging process of veneers. Some wood will fade, some will darken. Sunlight only speeds up the process

Other

Wood veneers can crack and split when exposed, over time, to low humidity levels – this especially true in the case of air conditioning
