FOLLOWING THESE FEW BASIC STEPS WILL HELP YOU ENJOY AND PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT FOR YEARS TO COME.

Do not expose your furniture to any liquids.
All liquids should be wiped up immediately with a soft, slightly damp cloth in the direction of the wood grain. For stone surfaces, liquids should be immediately soaked up with a paper towel and wiped dry to avoid any staining.
Avoid harsh commercial cleaners, glass cleaners and spray polishes on wood furniture.
 
Do not expose your furniture to strong or direct sunlight, near heat outlets or air conditioning units, open windows and dampness.
Excessive exposure to sunlight and heat can cause fading of your furniture finish.
Extreme temperatures and humidity changes can cause wood cracking and splitting.
 
Do not place rubber or plastic materials on the wood finish.
Chemicals within the plastic or rubber may react with the finish if left in contact for a long period of time. Place a strip of felt or cork under your accessories to avoid any markings.
 
Never place hot objects on any furniture surface.
Always place a hot plate between your furniture top and a hot object to protect your furniture.
 
Dust with a clean, damp, lint free cloth.
Frequent dusting will remove abrasive build up, which can cause damage a finish over time.
Small scratches and marks can be touched up or covered with a mark or scratch remover or a touch up stick. These can be purchased from any paint or hardware store.
