Well maintained furniture
adds a touch of class and can be the pride of any home.
Abesquare’s furniture will
retain its beauty for life if proper care is taken to maintain it well.
Please keep the following
points in mind while caring for your furniture:
- Do not expose the furniture
to direct sunlight. Ultraviolet light from the sun can fade the finish of the
wooden furniture over time - this is a normal characteristic of natural wood.
- Avoid dragging any sharp
objects on the wooden surfaces to prevent scratches on the furniture.
- The furniture can be dusted
regularly with a soft, clean cotton cloth. Avoid using an abrasive cloth or applying
too much pressure. This could alter the sheen of the finish on the furniture. Please
remember that dust on the furniture itself can act as an abrasive and improper rubbing
can result in scratches on the furniture.
- Always wipe moisture
promptly and dry with a soft cloth. Never leave damp cleaning material such as
cleaning cloth, sponges, etc on the furniture. Excess water may leave stains
and can also cause the wood to damage.
- To do more heavy cleaning,
dip a cloth in mild soap or detergent dissolved in water, wring the cloth dry,
and wipe the area to be cleaned. Rinse and immediately dry with a clean, soft
- Exposing the furniture to
intense heat, such as from hot food or coffee cups, could damage the finish. Coasters
and mats should be used to keep any hot objects on wooden furniture.
- Alcohol-based products
including cleaners, nail polish and perfumes should not be allowed to come in contact
with your wooden furniture. They can dissolve the furniture finish on contact,
requiring professional repairs.
- Never apply any cleaners
directly to the finished surface and spot test any new cleaners on an inconspicuous
surface location for results before cleaning in its entirety. Using chemicals on
wood can cause patches and colour difference on the wood base.
- The furniture should be
used in a humidity and temperature stable environment. Fluctuations in humidity and
temperature can cause expanding and contracting of the wood.
- The use of furniture polish
or wax can act as a barrier for the finish and prevent the body oils and moisture from
the skin from bonding with the finish.
- Polish the wood with a
high-quality furniture polish every few months to enhance the beauty of the wood. Spray
the polish onto a clean cotton cloth, apply it to the furniture, and then buff with
a second clean, dry cotton cloth.
