Wood Care

Each piece of furniture responds differently to changes in temperature and humidity in your home. Expansion at the joints and seams will return to its original shape and size as seasons change. Protective coverings such as felt backed place mats and table pads will help protect the finish on your furniture. This is especially important for wood furniture that is used in kitchen areas. Because each piece of wood is unique, you can expect variations in grain appearance and stain coloration. Random distressing is applied by hand and adds a distinctive heirloom appearance to the finish of some pieces. Ask your dealer if your furniture has this feature. Many wood pieces include levelers and door hinges that must be periodically adjusted to ensure smooth operation of doors and drawers. TV and other electronic equipment should be measured to ensure proper fit.

Treat drawer glides with petroleum jelly or candle wax for smooth operation.

Table leaves should always be stored flat. *Opening & closing of dining tables requires two people, when inserting or removing table leaves.
*This will avoid damaging.

Keep furniture out of sunlight to avoid sun damage and bleaching.

Keep furniture away from heating/air conditioning sources as they affect the moisture content of the wood.

Do not set synthetics or rubber products on the wood finish as the chemicals may damage the finish.

Do not leave newspapers and magazines on wood because the inks can bleed onto the finish and into the wood.

Periodically adjust levelers and door hinges to ensure smooth operation of doors and drawers.
