Care Instructions, Tips and Useful Products For Your Wood Furniture

Care Instructions

Here are a few tips and products for keeping your furniture “like new” for years to come!

  1. Give your furniture SEVEN days to cure with light use only. The finish needs time to fully harden before “normal” use. Full cure is 30 days.
  2. Cleaning is easy! A damp cloth and mild detergent is all you need. For everyday use, we recommend using placemats, trivets with FELT protectors and table pads to protect against scratches, dings/dents and immediately wiping away spilled liquids.  We use Method Wood Spray for monthly “polishing”(affiliate link below). We recommend you do NOT use Pledge on your furniture!
  3. Avoid putting extremely hot or cold objects in direct contact with your wood surface. Extreme temperatures can cause discoloration and/or damage the wood finish.
  4. Sunlight is one of nature's elements that can cause damaging effects to your new furniture. It is preferable not to expose your furniture to direct sunlight for long periods of time and to leave your table leaf extensions in place to ensure the uniform aging of your finish.

Monthly Cleaning

Once a month break out the microfiber cloths and wood spray to give your furniture some shine. We highly caution you when using chemical-laden products on your furniture- it can do a number on your finish!

Chair Glides

Chair Glides have multiple uses. First, they help to protect your floor and second it makes them easier to slide along your floor. For tile, laminate, or wood we recommend tap-in felt bottomed glides.
