Having the natural beauty of wood or stone furniture in your home is a wonderful thing. It adds uniqueness to any room.  Utilizing simple common sense care and maintenance will make your beautiful furniture last.  Always utilize coasters, placemats, and trivets for table surfaces. Doing so prevents water rings, scratches, and burns to table surfaces.  To prevent scratches, avoid sliding things across your table.  When entertaining, we recommend the use of a protective custom made table pad.  Please call us for details, pricing, and how to order.

 

Dusting properly and regularly helps to maintain your new table surface.  Dust is a very abrasive surface contaminant, usually containing little bits of sand or other hard debris.  If not removed properly it can turn a dust cloth into sand paper.  The goal is to remove as much dust as possible before utilizing any cleaners or cleaning cloths.  We recommend you always begin the dusting process by utizing a feather duster.  

  • Begin by removing all items from the table surface.  Then, going in the same direction as the wood grain, gently slide the feather duster over the sruface.  This lifts a great deal of dust off the surface.  Repeat as many times as necessary until you don't see very much if any remaining dust layer on the surface.
  • Next, utilizing a soft cloth, gently wipe in the same direction as the wood grain, and remove as much remaining surface soiling as possible.  
  • Finish by utilizing a soft cloth combined with a gentle, non abrasive cleaner.  Make certain the cleaner does not contain ammonia, solvents, waxes, silicone, or harsh chemicals.  We recommend Sprayway Glass Cleaner, or any Guardsman wood care cleaners.  
  • In all processes only apply light pressure.  Do not scrub and do not rub in circular motions.  Only gently wipe in the direction of the surface's grain pattern.

Proper care and maintenance will keep your surface beautiful and vibrant for years to come. If you have any questions about proper care, or if you have an accident and need to figure out how to fix it, please don't hesitate to call us at 206.243.1834.  We're always happy to assist with recommendations and advice.
