MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTION FURNITURE OF SOLID WOOD, STEEL AND COPPER

Informations about rules of furniture storage:

Wood is natural raw material that expands and shrinks under the outflow of humidity and temperature, which is called ‘wood work’. Furniture must be used indoors and protected from harmful weather influences. Optimal conditions in room are humidity in range of 50-70% and temperatures between 15 and 30°C. Changes in humidity and high temperature changes can lead to changes in shape of wooden elements. Too dry air can lead to deformation of solid wooden parts. If the humidity is too low or high, there is risk that wood will break. It is recommended to use additional moisture in room in winter, when the humidity drops significantly.

Instruction for maintenance and use of wooden furniture – basic rules:

  • Should follow the rules for use wooden surfaces.
  • Furniture should be cleaned systematically – do not allow furniture to be too dirty.
  • For daily care, you should use gently moistened and soft cloth and try to wipe furniture to dry.
  • If you want to use special chemical preparations, you need to make sure that they are intended for furniture made of solid wood with lacquered surface and they do not contain silicone or alcohol derivatives. Can’t be use solvents or preparations, which contain them.
  • Always use measures that are intended for contact with wood: separately for cleaning, separately for care.
  • Do not use for tearing off dust: sharp sponges, scrapers, preparations with pellet, which could scratch the furniture surface.
  • Do not use diluents, corrosive measures, stain removers or other means that may adversely affect lacquered surface.
  • Any dirt or wet stains should be removed immediately with dry cloth or special preparations for lacquered wood.
  • You can’t directly put preparation on furniture. Detergents and preservatives must not be left on furniture surface without distributing or rubbing it. First should soak microfiber or flannel cloth with preparation, and then clean furniture.
  • Wooden furniture should always be rubbed in direction of wooden rings.
  • Keep a minimum 1m distance from heat sources, for example: fireplaces, heaters, stoves and stoves.
  • Do not put hot, damp and very cold things directly on tabletop. Should use place blankets, even for writing.
  • Rooms hould be ventilae and should avoid that tabletops are left in damp rooms.
  • Protect furniture from water – wipe spilled water immediately dry.
  • Avoid contact of furniture with wet surfaces: wet floors, carpets, shower cabin walls, since wood can absorb water.

Instruction for maintenance and use of copper tabletops – basic rules:

  • Copper reacts chemically with acidic (e.g. lemons).
  • If the tabletop will come to discoloration, the discolored place will be covered with natural patina.
  • Be careful with products that can gently discolor the natural patina of copper: orange and lemon juice, ketchup, toothpaste, vinegar.
  • When cleaning and using the copper tabletop, be careful of any corrosive or aggressive substances, chlorine-containing products and any agents that may damage the surface mechanically (e.g. cleaning powders as well as agents containing abrasive or polishing additives). Their use can permanently damage the surface of tabletop.)
  • To keep the surface of kitchen tabletops clean, it is enough to use sponge or cloth, moistened with warm water and one of the generally available washing agents. Then you need to wash the tabletop with clean water and wipe it dry.
  • Before using any cleaning agent, you should read its description and make sure that it is suitable for this type of surface.
  • Do not place hot, damp and very cold objects directly on surface of tabletop. For this purpose, use appropriate pads.
  • Also, do not scrape the surface with sand or scrub the surface with wire brush.

Instruction for maintenance and using steel elements:

  • Do not place the rack where external factors work, such as: fire, water, salts, acids, organic solvents containing esters, alcohols, flavors, glycolic esters or chlorinated hydrocarbons. Also other aggressive chemicals, such as: cement, lime, abrasives or detergents that cause material loss or scratches.
  • Do not place the rack in wet, damp, water-prone place, as this can lead to corrosion of elements.
  • Do not use scouring powder for cleaning, because thay can leave scratches on surface.
  • Serious stains from oil or grease can be removed with alcohol-based products, including methyl spirit and isopropyl alcohol or with other solvents such as acetone. These agents do not pose danger to the anti-corrosion properties of the coating.
  • Cleaning tools – wet fabric or chamesmic leather are usually enough to remove ordinary dirt. For more resistant dirt, nylon sponges are usually suitable. For powder-painted steel do not use the steel scrubbing, cleaning wool or wire brushes.
  • Maintenance of powder-painted steel: surface must be washed regularly with clean water with little addition of kitchen detergents.

RaWood is not liable for the natural wear and tear of material caused by exploitation, natural aging of wood, mechanical, chemical, painting or structural damage as a result of improper care, lack of care or care that is incompatible with the principles of furniture care, discoloration of fronts exposed to permanent sunlight, unsuitable maintenance, chemical effects, effects, fire, elevated temperatures, Use of force, adverse weather conditions, repairs or modifications made by the buyer or use of the subject matter of the contract that does not comply with the rules for proper use of the furniture.
