Wood Care

The natural characteristics of solid wood

Although wood is naturally beautiful, it is far from flawless. It is the nature of wood to have knots, mineral deposits, worm holes and unusual grain patterns. Each piece is as individual as a fingerprint and will take stain slightly different - even two boards from the same tree. This is inherent to wood and is not a defect unless it interferes with the product giving satisfactory service.


Wood Furniture Care Tips:

  • Avoid placing your furniture in highly humid or dry areas, such as directly next to air vents.
  • Direct sunlight may darken wood furniture. 
  • Use coasters and tablecloths or placemats when dining to avoid scratches and dings and water rings. 
  • Place trivets under all serving dishes, especially beneath hot plates to keep heat from damaging the finish. 
  • Wipe up spills immediately. Tough, sticky spots may require a small bit of hand dish soap, but be sure to rinse clean with a damp cloth and dry any excessive moisture. 
  • Clean your wood furniture with a lint free, lightly water-dampened cloth. 
  • Dust with a soft, dry cloth. Even dust particles can be abrasive, so always dust with the grain and not against it. 
  • Do not use harsh chemicals or abrasives on any finish. 
  • Store table leaves properly. They should be placed flat. They can warp if placed on their sides.
  • We strongly discourage standing on or tilting back in chairs while seated; it is dangerous & will loosen the joints. (Decorative wood spindles are fragile and will break when subject to undue stress).
  • If you have damage or stain from an incident or accident and you purchased your furniture with a Furniture Protection plan within the last 5 years, contact the plan provider before attempting any cleaning or repair yourself.  If you  purchased the plan prior to June 2015 call 800-686-5559.  If you purchased the plan after June 2015 a claim can be filed by app (iTunes & Android), phone, or website
