To maximise the life and beauty of your Naturally Timber Furniture, please follow these simple guidelines:
- Timber should not be placed on damp or wet surfaces or exposed to direct sunlight or extreme heat. Extremes in temperature due to heaters, fireplaces and air-conditioners will contribute to the decline in moisture content and can affect the life and look of your Naturally Timber Furniture causing it to split, move and warp.
- Avoid placing abrasive items directly on your furniture and always place a protective pad, placemat or coaster under hot dishes, teapots, saucepans, pizza boxes etc. Naturally Timber Furniture surfaces have been treated with a heat resistant lacquer, but will not tolerate excessive heat. The heat transfers through the lacquer and marks the timber itself as well as marking the lacquer.
- Spills should be wiped off immediately with a soft cloth. Our lacquer is water resistant, but not capable of dealing with excessive amounts. The liquid will eventually seep through the lacquer and cause swelling, blistering and ir-repairable damage to the timber if exposed to excessive amounts of water.
- Every 6-12 months give the timber a light application of bees wax. Waxing is a protection against splitting and warping as well as nourishing the timber and beautifying it naturally.
- Please avoid any contact between your Naturally Timber Furniture and nail polish, acetone, methylated spirits, textas, markers, fragrant oils, glues and any cleaning products containing silicone.
- Avoid covering your furniture for prolonged periods of time. Moisture can collect under the covering and cause damage to your furniture.
- Please place your Naturally Timber Furniture on a level surface to prevent any unnecessary stress. Any furniture that requires leveling due to an uneven floor is the responsibility of the customer.
