Solid Wood Furniture Care

 

Wood is a natural material, which can be affected under different environments such as erratic humidity, direct sunlight, and normal wear and tear. Follow these helpful guidelines to properly maintain your wood furniture.

 

  • Avoid exposing Solid Wood to direct sunlight and heat like big windows without curtains or heat-emitting objects like radiators
  • Place mats/protectors under hot and damp objects to avoid direct contact with the wood furniture
  • Maintain consistent humidity of 30-60%

 

Oil-Treated Solid Wood – CARE INSTRUCTIONS

 

For day-to-day care, use a damp cloth without detergents or washing liquids to gently wipe your oil-treated Solid Wood Surface.

 

Oil-treat your furniture 4-6 times in their first year, and a minimum of 2 times a year thereafter.

 

Solid Wood surfaces can be sanded down to reduce roughness, scratches and stains, before applying oil-treatment.

  • Sandpaper or Sanding Sponge used for sanding should be of a grit of 280-320, and sand gently in the direction of the wood grain.
  • Wipe the Solid Wood surface with a damp cloth, and make sure that the surfaces are completely dry before applying the oil-treatment.
  • Apply the oil-treatment on the Solid Wood surfaces and underneath, using a dry cloth, in the direction of the wood grain. Never pour the oil directly onto the Solid Wood surface.
  • Let the oil-treatment penetrate through the surface for about 15 minutes, and wipe of the excess with a dry cloth.
  • Let the furniture dry for about 12 hours before using it again. It takes approximately 2 weeks for the oil to fully cure your Solid Wood Furniture.
  • Pour water over the oiling cloth and place them in an airtight plastic bag to avoid the risk of combustion.
  • Oil-treatment is a surface impregnation method and not a complete protective step for your solid wood furniture. The oil works as a protectant against drying, dirt and humidity.

 

 

Lacquered Solid Wood – CARE INSTRUCTIONS

 

  • For day-to-day care, use a damp cloth without detergents or washing liquids to gently wipe your Lacquered Solid Wood Surface
  • If your Lacquered Solid Wood Furniture seems dull or worn, an oil-treatment can be applied. However, please always Danish Design’s service team first.

 

 

Soap-Treated Solid Wood – CARE INSTRUCTIONS

 

For day-to-day care, use a damp cloth without detergents or washing liquids to gently wipe your Soap-treated Solid Wood Surface.

Soap-treat your furniture once a week in the first 4-6 weeks, and 6-8 times a year thereafter.

 

  • Solid Wood surfaces can be sanded down to reduce roughness, scratches and stains, before applying oil-treatment.
  • Sandpaper or Sanding Sponge used for sanding should be of a grit of 280-320, and sand gently in the direction of the wood grain.
  • Wipe the Solid Wood surface with a damp cloth, and make sure that the surfaces are completely dry before applying the soap-treatment.
  • Add 50ml of soap flakes into 1L of boiling water, allowing the soap mixture to cool to a lukewarm temperature. It is imperative that the temperature is lukewarm to prevent the darkening of your Solid Wood furniture.
  • Apply the soap mixture on the Solid Wood surfaces and underneath, using a cloth, in the direction of the wood grain. Never pour the oil directly onto the Solid Wood surface.
  • Let the soap mixture penetrate through the surface for about 5 minutes, and wipe of the excess with a dry cloth.
  • Let the furniture dry for about 1 hour before sanding it gently to remove possible rising fibres or application strokes
  • Soap-treatment is a surface impregnation method and not a complete protective step for your solid wood furniture. The soap works as a protectant against drying, dirt and humidity.

Marble Furniture Care

 

Marble can be categorised into two finishes – Honed Marble and Polished Marble. Honed Marble has been sanded to give it its signature matte and smooth look, whilst Polished Marble is shinier in its surface. Since Marble is a natural material, each marble table top is 100% unique in its design, containing different characteristics of watermarks, graining and shadows. These are all natural contents of Marble and are not considered defects in the product.

 

For day-to-day care, use a damp cloth to gently wipe your Marble surfaces, and wipe off any excess moisture with a dry cloth.

 

Use your stone-sealer for a stone-sealing treatment on your Marble furniture about once in every 2 years for added protection against moisture.

 

Please take note:

  • All kinds of acidic liquids like vinegar, soda, lemon, juices etc. are damaging to Marble and should therefore never be used on Marble.
  • All kinds of liquid should be wiped off promptly to avoid discoloration and permanent marks.
  • Avoid placing damp objects on your Marble Furniture
  • Avoid placing or dragging hard or sharp objects directly on your Marble Furniture
