Caring For Your Oiled Indoor Table
Your table has been oiled with Organoil (burnishing oil). Organoil products are designed to set within the timber’s structure, rather than build a film on the surface like a varnish.
Treat your furniture with respect especially for the first 3-4 weeks, to allow the oil to fully cure.
Note: Curing can take up to 8 weeks to occur depending on weather conditions. Dry warm conditions cure faster than damp wet conditions.
We recommend Hard Burnishing Oil by ‘OrganOil’ to maintain your furniture.
Always use coasters, placemats and tablecloths
We recommend the use of coasters, placemats or tablecloths with minimal liquid and heat directly on the table at all times. Ideally avoid water contact as watermarking may occur.
It’s best to take precautions; prevention is better than cure.
Wipe up spills with a soft, damp cloth straight away
Wood is a naturally porous material that quickly absorbs moisture and is therefore prone to stains from spillages. By ensuring spills are wiped up immediately and with the correct material, stains and moisture damage can be prevented.
Keep your furniture out of direct sunlight
Strong rays of sunshine can bleach wood and defect or ruin the original colour. To avoid this, try to position your furniture away from spots in the room that are particularly prone to direct sunlight or right by the window.
Avoid placing furniture next to heating sources or air-conditioning units
When wood gets too hot or too cold, it can warp, so it is generally advised not to place your furniture beside radiators, heaters, fires or air conditioning units. Position your pieces where temperature is relatively consistent.
Being a natural product, you may expect to see cracks and movement, adding to the rustic character. These are not to be considered a fault or flaw and do not compromise the strength or construction of your furniture.
Individuality and Uniqueness
Due to the total individuality of each and every one of our products, it’s to be expected that there can be some variation between different products in the same range.
We see this as a good thing, as you can enjoy a piece a of furniture that is completely individual and unique to your home.
Caring For Leather Furniture
Leather offers a combination of luxury and comfort. This highly durable material can last far longer than fabric when treated well, and usually improves with age.
It is important to ensure that your leather furniture is well cared for and frequently treated with a purpose-made leather cleaner in order to optimise the life of the leather. Making sure the cleaner is made specifically for leather is important as ordinary/non-specified cleaners can cause permanent stains and damage.
