care & maintenance

in general
1 — always wipe the surface with a clean cloth.
2 — use underlay for hot items.
3 — check occasionally that mounting bracket and screws are tightened.

veneer and lacquered wood surfaces
• wipe the surface with a clean cloth made of non-abrasive material. damp wipe with mild cleanser solution (ph-neutral 7-8). you can also make a cleanser of dishwashing liquid and
lukewarm water. make sure to put the cleanser on the cloth and not on the furniture surface, and do not leave the cleanser on the surface. wipe the surface with the solution, then with pure water and finally with a dry cloth.
• do not use ammonia or any hard cleansers since this can cause the veneer to come loose,
or dissolve the lacquer.
• veneer with a thin lacquer or stained layer surface is to be wiped in the direction of the fibre with a dry cloth.
• use furniture care resources without silicone, since it complicates the possibilities for future repainting.

oil treated wood surfaces
• oil treated surfaces are maintained by re-oiling approx. once a year.
• wipe the surface with a clean cloth made of non-abrasive material.
• grind the surface with a fine paper, size 240-400, in the direction of the fibre.
• oil the surface instantly with oil suitable for indoor furniture use. make sure to put the liquid
on the cloth and not directly on the furniture surface.
• wipe the surface with a dry cloth and make sure to remove all excess oil. let it settle for about 12 hours.

linoleum
• wipe the surface with a cloth.
• use water to clean spills. because linoleum is made from natural elements, it is sensitive to harsh, chemical-based cleaning products. commercial cleaning products that contain chemicals such as ammonia can permanently discolour your linoleum.
• if the spill cannot be cleaned with water alone, add mild liquid dishwashing detergent to the water. use a ph-neutral detergent (ph 7-8).

laminate
• wipe the surface with a cloth.
• wipe the surface with a clean cloth made of non-abrasive material. damp wipe with mild cleanser solution (ph-neutral 7-8). you can also make a cleanser of dishwashing liquid and
lukewarm water.
• rub dry with a clean cloth.

plexiglas
• wipe the surface with a cloth. use a clean cloth made of non-abrasive material, since plexiglas easily get scratched.
• if the spill cannot be cleaned with water alone, use a mild solution of non-abrasive cleaner and water. make sure there are no ammonia, acetone and others in the cleaner, as it will eat into the plexiglas surface and leave them looking cloudy.

steel & powder coated steel
• wipe the surface with a cloth. damp wipe with detergent solution. then rub dry with a cloth.
• remove stains with detergents that do not contain abrasives.
• never use steel wool.

textile — felt

• avoid sharp objects on the surface, since it can get scratched.

plastic — abs

leather

• direct sunlight darkens light leather over time, and fades dark leather.
