HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR HARDWOOD FURNITURE

 

Our furniture is imported from Indonesia, where our factory uses its own locally sourced timber. Each piece is created by expert craftsmen using state of the art equipment. Strict quality control at each step of the manufacturing process ensures the highest international standards.

 

The finished look of our furniture is natural using wood veneer.  Therefore you may notice small cracks or slight distressing in the colour.  It is common for wood to naturally shrink and expand when exposed to harsh environmental temperatures.  Because of the humidity and high temperatures in the Middle East, we carefully design our product and select the use of solid wood to minimize this process of nature.

 

An environmentally friendly product is important to us and our manufacturing process is aimed at safeguarding the end-users health. For this reason, our furniture is coated with PU finishing products with the least emission of solvents.

 

Veneer is a natural wood product, so it requires more attention than other surfaces. When veneer is properly cared for it will last long and keep looking beautiful.  In order to maintain the quality of your O Brand products, please follow these cleaning procedures:

 

Our furniture can be cleaned with a mild soap detergent and water, simply wiping in the direction of the wood grain with a damp, lint-free cloth. Do not use aerosol-powered cleaners or polishes.  Also, do not use polishes containing waxes or abrasives, or polishes that are oil based.  Our PU fabrics can also be cleaned in the same way.  Our soft furnishing fabrics should always be professionally cleaned.  A specification document containing the mix of fabric can be provided from our Sales Representatives upon request.

 

In order to maintain your furniture and keep it looking as-new, we recommend that any spillage of liquids are removed immediately with a damp wet cloth and not left for more than 24 hours.

 

The instructions for the care and maintenance of O Brand products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary.

 

 

HELPFUL HINTS

 

To reduce the risk of damage to your furniture, take some precautions:

 

• Use coasters for glasses and mugs.

 

• Don’t place a potted plant on a veneer surface unless in a water-tight container or in a drip tray.

 

• Use protective pads under equipment with rubber cushioning feet. Some chemical compounds used in the feet on electronics, such as TV’s and DVD’s may leave permanent stains or marks.

 

• Objects should be lifted instead of dragged across a surface.  Protective pads should be used under items with a rough bottom, like pottery.

 

• Denting, caused by extreme pen pressure when writing, can also damage veneer. Use desk pads or some other protection where a lot of paperwork is done.

 

• Sunlight can damage veneer as well, so veneer surfaces should not be in direct sunlight. To help a surface age evenly, users can periodically move items on their furniture so that the entire surface is exposed to an even amount of light over time.
