Care & Maintenance of Wood Furniture

  • Dust your furniture with a  lint-free cloth in the direction of the wood grain. Do this often as dust if left can have an abrasive effect on your furniture

  • Use a dab of mild dishwashing detergent on your cloth when tackling more stubborn marks caused by food and drink. Make sure you dry the surface well afterwards.

  • Spills should be immediately wiped up with a damp cloth. If left on a wood veneer, liquids can seep through and loosen the glue from the surface. Don’t use a sponge as this will spread the liquid. Instead, use a paper towel or a clean dishcloth.

  • Twice a year, apply a good quality furniture polish with a soft cloth. Do not use aerosol-powered cleaners, polishes or any kind of abrasive cleanser or cloth

  • Only apply oil when the product looks dry, solid woods can be polished a couple of times a year or when you feel the furniture is dry and needs it. We suggest a dab of Woodoc Deep Penetrating Furniture Wax. Use sparingly, a little goes a long way. 

  • Do not use wax polishes on your furniture surfaces that are sealed with high-quality lacquers through which wax will not penetrate. To clean, merely wipe with a soft, damp cloth. For stubborn marks, use a mixture of one part vinegar and two parts water.

  • Use coasters to avoid water rings and placemats to protect the surface from heat

  • If exposed to direct sunlight over long periods of time, the colour of your wood furniture can fade a little. 

General Care:

Teak oil finished pieces need to be re-oiled to replenish drying wood, which brings life back to your piece. Oil as often as you'd like, but typically every few months. If it looks dry, oil her up! We use Danish Oil on most of our pieces, 0000 Steel wool, and a good cloth or industrial paper

towels.

  1. Apply the Danish or Teak oil with the steel wool. To do this pour some of the oil onto the piece and lightly spread with the steel wool. Do not rub too hard, or try to force the oil into the wood, it should be applied in a smooth motion WITH the grain to avoid any scratching.

  2. Leave the oil on the piece for approximately 5 to 10 minutes. DO NOT DO THIS IN THE SUN. The oil should not get tacky to the touch, if it does you will have to clean it off with Mineral Spirits and start the process again.

  3. Completely wipe the piece down so there is no oil to the touch left. Afterwards, you may see some spotting or sweating which is the oil coming out of the wood simply wipe it down again to get rid of it
