Furniture Care

TIMBER

  • For general cleaning wipe with a soft damp cloth and dry with a clean cloth
  • Use beeswax polish for the occasional polish, avoid polishes with silicon waxes (like Mr Sheen)
  • Spills should be cleaned and not left on the surface
  • Avoid heat sources and direct sunlight
  • During the first week of use, we do not recommend leaving any object on the surface because irregular absorption of light can leave permanent stains or marks

UPHOLSTERY

  • Consider treating your furniture with water-based fabric protection
  • Rotate and fluff reversible cushions weekly to maintain cushion shape
  • Vacuum regularly using low suction
  • Protect from direct sunlight
  • Treat spills and stains as soon as possible. Gently scrape soil or mop liquid from the surface of the fabric
  • Do not remove cushion covers for separate cleaning or washing, even though they may have zippers
  • Clean using upholstery shampoo. Do not use dish washing or laundry detergents. Dry in shade away from direct heat. Allow to dry thoroughly before re-use
  • Do not wet cushion filling
  • Annual professional cleaning is recommended through a hot water extraction machine
  • Pilling can occur occasionally as a result of normal daily wear and should not be considered a fault. Fibre pills can be removed with a battery operated pilling shaver

REMOVING STAINS FROM UPHOLSTERY

  • Use Carpet Power Spot Stain Remover (available in supermarkets)
  • Spray onto a clean white cloth - not the upholstered fabric (coloured cloths may transfer colour onto the fabric and spraying the fabric could dilute the stain and make it spread further)
  • Roll the cloth from the outside to the center
  • Only rub lightly if stain is resisting the roll method
  • Let dry, no need to rub off
  • If stain is not removed, repeat process. It may take a couple of attempts

LEATHER

  • Protect from direct sunlight, heat and weather
  • Dust with a clean dry cloth or use the soft brush attachment on the vacuum cleaner on a weekly basis
  • Wipe contact areas where perspiration and body oils accumulate on a weekly basis
  • Remove all liquid and food spills immediately
  • Wipe with a clean cloth dampened with leather cleaner in accordance with manufacturer's instruction
  • Do not use shoe, saddle, or floor polishes or laundry cleaning products
  • Do not use solvents or cleaning fluids, abrasive powders, and paste cleaners
  • Do not wet excessively
  • Avoid hard rubbing or scrubbing
  • Dry in shade away from direct heat
  • Use leather conditioner or protection creme on a regular basis
  • For persistent marks, seek professional advice
