Maintenance and Care

Our furniture is manufactured using natural wood veneers, laminates and/or spray-lacquer finishes. 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

V P L

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

V

Other


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