CARING FOR YOUR WOOD PIECE

CARING FOR YOUR WOOD PIECE

Your wood piece is a natural work of art designed to age with added character over time. As wood is a natural material, we recommend specific care to extend the life of your piece:

  • To clean wood pieces, wipe the surface with a dampened cloth using a non-wax polish or mild detergent solution. Avoid the use of ammonia based products or silicone oils as they may cause damage if used over a long period of time.
  • Avoid excessive prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, high temperatures, and high humidity as these environments can cause damage to both the wood and wood finish.
  • We recommend to always use a beverage coaster; otherwise, enjoy the added character and aging process that happens over time.
