Caring for your Furniture

General Dos & Don’ts

Do– Wipe away any spillages immediately from furniture tops and surfaces or within units.

Do – Thoroughly clean all units regularly.

Don’t – Place heated electrical equipment, cigarettes etc. on furniture tops and surfaces. Use protective mats, ashtrays.

Don’t – Leave unit doors or drawers open longer than necessary. They could cause injury to yourself or others.

Don’t – Overload shelves or drawer boxes beyond capacity.

Solid Wood / Veneer Doors & Drawer Fronts 

Wood and veneer of the highest quality have been used in the manufacture of these doors and drawer fronts. The lacquered finish seals the wood and gives a tough hard wearing surface but, nevertheless, any spillages should be wiped away immediately, following which a wipe over with a lightly dampened cloth will restore the former finish of the wood. When thoroughly dry, a soft cloth and a final polish with a good quality household furniture polish will preserve and enhance the natural beauty and characteristics of the wood. Slight scratches and abrasions should be treated with a suitable proprietary wood repair product but expert advise should be sought before attempting any repairs.

Hand Painted Doors & Drawer Fronts 

These should be wiped clean with a cloth dampened with water containing a mild detergent.Avoid over wetting. Do not use an abrasive cleaner, petroleum based cleaners or solvent based products. When thoroughly dry wipe clean with a soft dry cloth to remove any excess dust.

Vinyl wrapped Doors & Drawer Fronts

Wipe clean with a cloth lightly dampened with water containing a mild detergent.  Avoid over wetting.

 Do not use any abrasive cleaning agents, acids, bleaches, petrol or solvents. Similarly do not use rough pads, wire wool or any similar cleaning acids.

Solid dove-tailed Drawers 

If needed remove drawers from units and brush to remove excess loose dirt and dust etc. Wipe clean with silicone furniture polish or a cloth dampened with a mild detergent. Avoid harsh, abrasive cleaning materials, solvents and particularly avoid saturating the drawer with water.

Hinges & Drawer Runners 

These should be inspected periodically and any loose dirt, fluff or grime removed by means of a vacuum cleaner nozzle and flexible hose or soft, dry brush or duster. Lubrication should not normally be necessary. However, a small amount of household spray or furniture polish can be used as a substitute if required.

Interior wardrobe carcass

Brush out any loose dirt / dust etc. and clean interior surfaces by means of a silicone furniture polish or cloth lightly dampened with water containing a mild detergent. Polish surfaces with a soft dry duster. As with drawer boxes, avoid any harsh or abrasive cleaning materials and excessive water or any other liquid.

Furniture Tops & Surfaces

Most everyday stains may be removed by wiping with a cloth slightly dampened with water and a mild detergent. Persistent stains can be removed with a mild abrasive cleaner, but harsh scouring powders should be avoided.

Furniture tops may be marked by excessive heat. Heated electrical equipment should therefore not be placed directly on the surface of the furniture tops unless toughened glass tops are in place.

Irreparable damage can be caused to a furniture top if it is subjected to excessive heat or moisture. Do not place heated electrical equipment over your furniture tops. Always wipe away spillages immediately, especially over furniture surfaces.
