There’s nothing like natural timber to warm up your home; and looking after it is straightforward with a few simple steps…starting with position.
Since timber is prone to expanding and shrinking with changes in temperature and humidity, so to keep it in prime condition, don’t put it directly in front of heaters, or anywhere subject to excessive changes in temperature or moisture.
To minimise scratching, avoid dragging hard objects across your timber tabletop, and don’t write with pen and paper without something underneath. Hot dishes or pans may leave ring marks on timber, so always use heat-resistant mats or trivets when dishing up.
We suggest regular dusting, wiping with a damp cloth, then buffing with a dry cloth to keep your timber surface in tip-top condition, and polishing once a month with specially-formulated furniture polish – always following application instructions carefully.
Stubborn marks can be tackled with a damp cloth moistened with a mild detergent solution. Avoid silicone-based products which will leave a sticky residue on the surface.
