Care Instructions

 

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 cloth.
  • 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.
