SOLID TIMBER

Timber is a natural product and as such will expand and contract with changes in temperature and humidity. This movement can cause cracks to appear in the timber and in joins and is part of the character of timber furniture. To reduce movement minimise positioning furniture in full sun and heavily airconditioned or heated areas.

Maintenance:

  • Frequent dusting removes airborne deposits that build up in a filmy layer and can scratch the surface.
  • Never use all-purpose cleaning sprays unless they are specifically for wooden furniture.
  • Furniture Wax provides a hard finish and long-lasting protection, doesn't smear, and is more durable than sprays or polishes.Use paste wax or liquid wax made specifically for furniture. Depending on use, paste wax finishes may last as long as two years. Liquid wax is easier to apply but leaves a thinner coating; it may need to be applied more frequently than paste wax.Learn how to properly apply waxes to eliminate streaks or a cloudy appearance. Always apply wax in light coats, rubbing into the surface with the grain. Allow to dry and buff to a clear shine with a soft cloth.
  • Always test any product in a small area prior to applying to your furniture.
