Care & Maintenance of Furniture


Chairs & Tables:

All furniture should be checked regularly to ensure the joints, fixings and bolts have not worked loose. These should be periodically tightened to ensure the longevity of your furniture. Dragging any furniture will damage the joints and loosen the fixings.

 

Table Tops:
Our polished surfaces are heat resistant, but with any direct heat we recommend you use table mats or other protectors. To clean the table tops, whether they are polished wood or laminates we recommend you use a damp cloth and then buff with a dry one.

 

Fabrics:

All of the fabrics and fillings used to produce ffuk furniture are fire retardant and meet the standards of the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988. Also, schedule 3 interliners are used.

Spills can be removed by a dry cloth if done immediately. Professional dry cleaning may be required for more stubborn stains. Care & Maintenance sheets can be provided for each fabric if required. No fabric is stain resistant unless specified.

  

Leather:

Care & maintenance of the various leathers we use is available upon request and a leather cleaning kit can be purchased. No leather is stain resistant unless specified.

 

Wood Finishes:
All of our wood finishes can be maintained by simply wiping with a soft chamois leather moistened with tepid water. If the coating becomes very dirty, you can add a small amount of a mild detergent to the water ensuring that you wipe the water off with a soft dry cloth leaving the surface completely dry.

 

It is inadvisable to use wax containing polishes as these will create a build up of residues on the lacquered surface. This will then attract dust and dirt which make the furniture appear dirty. Wax residues can also alter the degree of sheen on the surface i.e. matt finishes may appear glossy.

 

We recommend that you avoid using industrial cleaners and detergents as some may cause damage to the lacquered surface and cause visible and lasting damage.

 

External Furniture:

Timber furniture should be re-treated at regular intervals with wood oil in order to maintain the appearance of the furniture.

Metal chairs with metal seats can retain the heat if left in direct sunlight, we advise you keep them within shady positions or use fabric seat pads.

The bolts & fixings should be checked and tightened periodically to all external furniture.

 

Dragging any furniture will damage the joints and loosen the fixings.
