Care and use

  • For daily care, use a slightly moistened and soft cloth while trying to wipe the furniture dry.   If you want to use special chemical preparations, you must ensure that they are designed for solid wood furniture with a varnish coating and do not contain silicone or alcohol derivatives. Under no circumstances should you use solvents or preparations containing them.
  • In the case of contact of a wooden piece of furniture with water, it should be wiped dry immediately, and it must not be dried in any way.
  • Changing the color tone of furniture made of solid wood is a natural phenomenon caused by UV radiation, therefore it is recommended in particular for colorless furniture (larch wood, pine, birch, alder) so that, in the initial period of use, the furniture tops remain uncovered or you often have to change the position of objects on it.
  • As wood is a natural material, under the outflow of contained humidity in the air and the temperature expands and shrinks, it is called “Wood work”. The optimal conditions in the room are humidity in the range 50-65% and temperature 20 0 C ± 5. If the humidity is too low or high, there is a risk of the wood cracking. It is recommended especially in winter, when the humidity significantly decreases the use of additional humidification in the room.
  • It is recommended to use washers under cups and dishes, so as not to expose the surface of the furniture       to direct contact with hot and sharp objects that may damage it.
  • In order to protect the floor from scratches, it is recommended to use felt or rubber pads under the feet of furniture
  • Do not set       wooden furniture directly at the heat sources (heaters, stoves, etc.), this may cause a wood break.
  •   Solid wood furniture may have a wood-specific aroma that disappears after a week or two in normal home conditions. In order to speed up this process, it is often necessary to ventilate the room.
  • After each use, the wooden board for serving or cutting must be wiped with a damp cloth or, in the case of larger soils, washed under water with the addition of liquid. Then wipe it and let it dry. In turn, to get rid of stains after messy sauces or unpleasant odors, the wooden board should be disinfected. For this purpose, we recommend sprinkling the board with salt and sprinkle with lemon juice, then leave it for a few minutes.
  • The last stage of care of the oak plank is its impregnation. The wooden board should be oiled at least once every quarter. Just pour out and spread on the surface a little linseed oil (or other), leave to absorb and then wipe the excess with a dry cloth. It will also be very good practice to apply a waxy layer that gives waterproof properties.
