Maintenance and Care
Particular attention and care should be given while installing or
relocating furniture. Dropping dragging or stacking may loosen
joints, break legs, scratch, and chip wood surfaces, or damage the
upholstery. Protect upholstered pieces from the sun, as ultraviolet
rays will cause fading and deterioration and hairline cracking in
wood finishes. Also, extreme room heat and/or humidity may cause
damage. Before attempting to clean a spill, spot, or soiled areas,
obtain the correct cleaning method recommended by the COM/
COL manufacturer and test it in an area that is not visible.
Housekeepers should be cautioned to avoid banging legs and
flounces with vacuum cleaners, and using bleaching detergents,
etc., for cleaning upholstery. Vacuum often (once a week) to
remove dust and grit. Never brush any fabric with a stiff fiber or
metal brush, as both are destructive to the fibers. Rotate cushions
and fluff back pillows frequently where applicable.
At least once each month, wood finishes should be cleaned with a
soft cloth slightly dampened with a water-soluble wood finish
cleaner to remove built-up grease and grime. Immediately wipe off
any moisture accumulated on the surface or within joints. Do not
excessively rub during any process. If polishing the exposed wood
elements are desired, select one designed for furniture and the
appropriate finish. Always test before overall application.
