Furniture Care Tips from Experienced Professionals
Avoid petroleum-based products, as they may damage the finish.
Don’t put furniture in direct sunlight to avoid bleaching
Commercial glass cleaners may damage brass and chrome
Use felt discs or some other placer when putting hot objects (lamps) on table tops
Remove any water from finished surfaces or decorative router lines
Always lay table leaves flat when storing them. Standing them on edge can cause warping
Maintain even humidity conditions in your home or office
All wood grains will have a different level of absorbtion
Try not to subject your wooden furniture to tilting or undue pressure
Vacuum clean with soft brush attachments
Be sure to remove dirt or dust that can cut threads
Treat your upholstery with stain repellent to extend its life
Blot spills clean on upholstery with a cloth or paper towel
Turn and rotate all cushions, periodically
If twisting occurs, unzip the cushions and pull fabric by hand
When your cushion fades, turn it over and the fabric fibres will run in the opposite direction
Mattress Sleep Sets
Ensure that your queen-sized mattress has cross supports and a center support to avoid sagging of the foundation
Be sure to rotate your mattress every 2 weeks for the first 2-3 months for a longer, more comfortable mattress life
Do not bend, fold, or stand on your mattress
Always use a washable, stain-repellent mattress protector or pad cover
Bedding warranties are used for defects in the workmanship or materials. At times, they can be pro-rated. This means that if your mattress and boxspring set needs work after the first year, the manufacturer will – ideally – replace it on a scaled rate.
