Furniture will eventually wear and tear over time. However, you can slow down the process by taking the extra precaution in treating your furniture the right way. Here are some tips on the do’s and don’ts in furniture care. In general, clean all food or liquid spillage as they occur. The longer they remain on the surface the more damage it could cause. Coasters are friendly household items that help prevent scratches, heat transfer and watermarks when used correctly. Always lift furniture because dragging weakens the joints. Always remember to use the right cleaner for the right material Placing products near windows or areas with direct sunlight would also result in a faster wear & tear rate as prolonged exposure to extreme temperature will result in faster degeneration, like wood or upholstery losing its color, wood drying out and materials in general becoming more brittle and weak. Heavier usage will contribute to a heavier wear & tear rate. The glossiness of a product will be reduced with time and use.
Metal surfaces have good resistance to dirt and liquids, but prolonged exposure to water can stain metal and even stainless steel, so it is important to keep metal surfaces dry. Dusting should be done with a soft, cotton cloth or towel. You may use mild detergent and water to clean once in a while but make sure to dry it completely afterwards. Smudges and smears can be removed using a window cleaning liquid and a paper towel. Regular waxing prevents tarnishing of metals and maintains a bright finish. Waxing also boost the cleaning power of metal products.
Chemical cleaners should not be used. Use only warm soapy water and remove any excess water immediately.
Always refer to the fabric manufacturers’ instructions for specific information.
(PP) Polypropylene is a thermoplastic polymer, which is rugged and unusually resistant to many chemicals and solvents. Most marks on Polypropylene furniture should be able to be removed with warm mild soapy water. However, resistant marks can be treated with common household cleaners and solvent products such as Methylated Spirit. Avoid harsh scouring powders and harsh abrasive cloths and brushes. The best way to enjoy the furniture for years to come is to avoid build up of dirt and grime.
Any coating applied on wood is only as durable as the wood itself. As a natural product, wood will always need more care than some man-made surfaces, such as Laminates. Chemical Cleaners should not be used. Use only warm water and soap and do not soak the surface for a long period (remove any excess water immediately and this includes water spills and condensation from a cold drink). When placing a Living Plant on timber, it’s advisable to use a Tray or Plate so that the water or condensation or morning dew from the Plant could be contained within the Plate and not transfer (spill or drip) onto the Timber; resulting in watermarks. Avoid dragging objects on the surfaces as this will result in scratching which may only be removed by refinishing. It is wise to use Coasters to prevent heat transfer onto the Timber as that will result in popping or swelling. Also, Coasters could help prevent unsightly scratches too. Depending on the finish, you will need to maintain the timber product in various ways. But generally, do not store Wood under plastic, as Wood is a natural product and it needs to breathe. Storage under plastic encourages mildew to grow on the timber. Also, due to Timber’s need to breathe and adjust its inner Moisture Content (MC), slight warping or splitting may be common.
