    HOW TO CARE FOR SUSTAINABLE SOLID OAK AND CARRARA MARBLE FURNITURE

    HOW TO CARE FOR SUSTAINABLE SOLID OAK AND CARRARA MARBLE FURNITURE 


    Knowing how to care for your sustainable furniture is essential to ensure that your favourite pieces last a lifetime. We share the simple tips to easily maintain the quality and beauty of your sustainable furniture pieces for decades to come.

     

     

    TRANSPORTING YOUR FURNITURE SAFELY


    When styling your interiors and moving furniture pieces it’s important to use the supplied furniture glides on the base of your piece. This will make it effortless to move your pieces whilst also protecting your flooring from any potential damage.
    With larger statement pieces, such as beds and dining tables, we recommend getting assistance and lifting as opposed to dragging. This will help to maintain the integrity of the joinery and screw threads. Don’t forget to wrap and secure your furniture when moving your pieces for long distances.

    MAINTAINING THE BEAUTY OF SUSTAINABLE SOLID OAK


    One of the things we love most about solid oak is that it looks better with age as the natural patina develops. To ensure your piece maintains its timeless beauty we recommend avoiding styling your furniture in direct sunlight or the path of air conditioning. This will cause the piece to excessively expand and contract which could lead to weak points or cracks.


    For any accidental spills, simply use a dry cotton cloth and wipe it off your furniture. You can also use a damp cloth to remove any stubborn spots. Keep in mind that solid oak is known to absorb, so be sure to dry any spills as soon as possible. Lastly, maintain that timeless, solid-oak finish by refraining from using any cleaning solutions or solvent on your furniture.

    CARING FOR YOUR CARRARA MARBLE PIECES 


    Once you’ve found the perfect place for your Carrara marble pieces, make sure placemats and coasters are used to avoid any potential scratches. In the event that a scratch or chip does occur, we always recommend seeking the advice or service of a repair professional. For spills and stains, we recommend cleaning them as soon as possible with a damp cloth. If the stain does happen to persist, then simply apply a Ph balanced scouring cleaner using a soft bristled brush and remember to not use any acidic cleaners as this will damage the finish of your product.
