In order to enjoy your pristine wood surfaces for a long time, take extra care in preventing stains from happening. Always use coasters under glasses, cups, vases and flower pots etc. It is important to remove stains and spillages immediately in order to prevent them from sinking into the material. Direct sunlight over long periods of time may have a darkening effect on the wood. If a discoloration should happen, the wood area can be sanded down and newly oiled for protection. In general, any mishaps, spillages or scratches should be dealt with immediately before they end up becoming a problem.
Although our wood panels and surfaces come with a protective layer, they are not entirely safe from being soiled or worn down. Correct maintenance is of importance!
Most minor stains can be wiped off with a damp cloth. Just make sure the wood is completely dry after cleaning. For cleaning you may use a soft cotton cloth, or other materials like linen, cellulose or microfibre. Beware that some microfibres may be too coarse and do harm to your surface, So better stick to natural materials. Also make sure not to rub the surface too hard, as you may wear down the protective layer and so cause a discoloration. It is always advisable to test your cleaning utensils and materials first in an area not quite too obvious. For stubborn stains please try a ph-neutral cleansing agent, please use it carefully and sparingly. Bad stains, scratches and kinks may be sanded down and recoated with a protective layer of oil. Dust should best be removed with a dust cloth or a feather duster.
For protection the wood is treated with oil. This protects against moisture and staining. The wood is coated with hard-wax protective oil, which sinks into the wood, rather than staying on the surface like lacquer. A lacquer layer may get worn down by wear and tear, an oil coated surface stays protective and it preserves the natural sheen and soft touch of the material.
Already oiled surfaces can be refurbished easily. Here is how:
Sand down your piece of furniture with a fine grade sandpaper. IMPORTANT!!: Always sand with direction of the wood grain. For the final sanding you should use an extra fine grade of sandpaper.
Before applying the protective hard-wax oil please make sure that all dust from sanding has been removed completely. The oil can be applied with a small paint roller or a soft cloth. Let the oil soak in for about 15 minutes, then remove any excess oil. Let the surface dry over night, then repeat the process a second time. It is advisable to refurbish your wood surfaces twice a year for a long lasting protective layer.
