Thank you for choosing Verty furniture. We hope that you will find the following information useful in keeping your furniture looking its best for many years to come.
The grain patterns on wood may vary depending on the species and way in which it is sawn – for example, Sheesham is grown across several regions of India, each with unique mineral soil compositions, resulting in grain pattern structures that are just characteristics of the natural beauty of the wood. Some furniture is deliberately aged to give it a more rustic feel.
The appearance of timber surfaces will soften and mature over time. The gloss levels on new furniture will initially vary from pieces that were previously purchased.
|How to care for your wood furniture ?|
|Daily care and maintenance|
|Occasional care and maintenance – every 3 months|
|General care and maintenance|
|Protect surfaces with coasters or mats from hot dishes. Wipe up spills immediately. Do place a mat or pad under paper if you are writing.|
|Wood veneer is essentially thin slices of timber spliced from the tree trunk which is then stitched and pasted onto different surfaces to give the appearance of natural wood, without the imperfections. These surfaces are maintained much the same way as described above.|
|Never drag furniture when moving it; always lift it!|
|Glass and acrylic furniture|
Do not use anything abrasive to clean these surfaces. Use a glass cleaning liquid or soapy water.
Protect the surfaces from scratches and marks by using coasters or mats.
If the glass is chipped or broken stop using the product and consult the manufacturer or supplier.
Do not place very hot or very cold items on the glass surface unless adequately thick table mats are used to prevent such items from coming into contact with the glass. Do not sit or stand upon the glass surface. Do not use the glass as a chopping surface. Do not strike the glass with hard or pointed items. When cleaning glass panels use a damp cloth or leather with washing-up liquid or soft soap if necessary; do not use washing powders or any other substances containing abrasives since these substances scratch glass. When cleaning stainless steel always use products formulated to clean this material.
|Metal and faux leathers|
|Protect leather from spillage and heat. Both surfaces may be cleaned using a clean damp cloth.|
|It is best to avoid keeping garden furniture in wet or excessively dry conditions for extended periods of time. This will deplete the natural oils that are present it the wood.|
|Remove spills with a damp cloth and wipe dry. Use table mats and coasters on the Safari trunk tables.|
|Please remove any spillages with a clean damp/dry sponge immediately. Fabric is not scotch guarded.|
