Tips for care of furniture
The durability and preservation of furniture depend not only on the quality of workmanship, but also on the proper care of furniture. It is very important to understand how climate and environmental conditions can affect the appearance and quality of furniture. Since furniture products are sensitive to light, humidity, dryness, heat and cold, it is recommended to avoid prolonged effects of one or several of these factors, as this causes accelerated aging of the paintwork, warping and deformation of wooden furniture elements, aging of upholstery material.

LIGHT

Do not expose furniture to direct sunlight. Prolonged direct effect of light on some areas may cause a reduction of chromatic characteristics in comparison with areas that have been less solar radiation. In the case of replacement and / or addition of components at different times, there may be a color difference of the elements that make up the furniture. This difference, which will become less noticeable over time, is completely natural and therefore can not be considered a sign of low quality furniture products.

TEMPERATURE

High heat or cold, as well as sudden changes in temperature, can seriously damage the furniture product or its parts. Furniture products should not be located closer than 1 m from heat sources. The recommended temperature during storage and (or) operation of furniture is + 10 ° С - + 25 ° С. Do not allow hot items on the furniture products (irons, dishes with boiling water, etc.) or prolonged exposure to heating radiation (high-power lamps, unshielded microwave radiators, etc.).

HUMIDITY

The recommended relative humidity of the location of the furniture product is 60% -70%. For a long time, one should not allow extreme humidity or dryness of the air in the room, and even more so their periodic change. Over time, such conditions may affect the integrity of furniture products or their components. However, if you have created such conditions, it is recommended to often ventilate the room and, to the extent possible, use dehumidifiers or humidifiers to normalize humidity.

Always keep the furniture surfaces completely dry. The surfaces of the furniture should be wiped with a dry soft cloth (flannel, cloth, plush, calico). Care of work surfaces (tabletops, sinks, etc.) is usually carried out with a soft, damp cloth, foam sponge or special brushes, possibly with the use of appropriate detergents.

It is recommended to clean any part of the furniture as soon as possible after it gets dirty. If you leave the air for some time, it has raised the risk of formation of streaks, stains and damage furniture products and parts. In the case of persistent pollution, it is recommended to use special cleaners, which are currently presented in a fairly wide range and in addition to proper cleaning qualities, have polishing, protective, preservative, flavoring and other useful properties. In this case, it is necessary to follow the instructions of the manufacturers of cleaners on the order and area (for which surfaces and materials are intended) of their application.

Remember that you can not use for cleaning cloth, sponge or gloves impregnated with products that should not come into contact with the materials to be cleaned.
 

HARSH ENVIRONMENTS AND ABRASIVE MATERIALS


And in any case, do not allow the impact on furniture products aggressive liquids (acids, as well as various food acids – acetic, citric, etc.; alkalis (soda, various means containing it, etc.); oils, solvents (nail polish remover, alcohol, vodka, cognac, etc.), etc.) containing such liquid products or their vapors. Such substances and compounds are chemically active – reaction with them will have negative consequences for your property or even health. It is also worth remembering that some specific washing (cleaning) compositions may contain a high concentration of aggressive chemicals and (or) abrasive components. The use of such detergents for cleaning furniture is unacceptable!

VENTILATION

It is recommended not to obstruct the grilles and air intake openings necessary for ventilation of household appliances.

 

FEATURES CARE FURNITURE

When caring for decorative and working surfaces should be used means corresponding to the type of coating material.

Laminated surface. In addition to the general conditions of care (see above), it is possible to use polishes for plastics.

Wooden surfaces (including those covered with natural veneer). It should be remembered that all wooden surfaces may eventually change appearance, not only depending on climatic characteristics and environmental conditions, but also on how the owner took care of them. In addition to the General conditions of care (see above), it is recommended to use a soft cloth or suede for cleaning. Always dry thoroughly (wipe with a dry cloth) wetted areas at the end of cleaning. A good alternative is a systematic dry cleaning with a vacuum cleaner equipped with a nozzle type "soft brush". We recommend the use of polishes for wood.

Varnished surface. It should be remembered that all varnished surfaces over time can change the color not only depending on the climatic characteristics and environmental conditions, the nature of care, but most importantly – depending on the degree of exposure to light. Recommended for cleaning primarily use a dry, soft cloth or chamois with the use of specially designed for the cleaners, who often have polishing quality. It is possible to use polishes for furniture paint surfaces, which, as a rule, have cleaning properties.

Thus, for all types of surfaces for polishing (processing) of the kitchen furniture you can not use polishes (other household products) that have contraindications for contact with food products, carefully read the user manual!

It is strictly unacceptable to use solid devices (scrapers, sponges with a working coating of plastic or metal fibrous material) when cleaning.

After a certain period of operation, it may happen that some mechanical parts (hinges, locks, etc.) lose the optimal adjustment and lubrication performed during the assembly of the furniture product. Similar phenomena can be expressed in the difficulty opening doors or drawer rails, etc. Therefore, the operation of household furniture do not exert excessive force for opening doors, drawers and other moving parts. Their proper operation is ensured by timely adjustment of the loops. At weakening of knots of threaded connections it is necessary to tighten them periodically.

The seal of the wall side is tightly pressed to the surface of the table top. Slices of worktops in the places of equipment insertion (mortise plate, sink) are coated with silicone sealant. At installation of the equipment seals attached to it are used.

Operation of countertops:

The table top is recommended to operate in a room with an air temperature not lower than +10°C and a relative humidity of 45-70%.
The table top cannot be installed close to permanently damp cold walls or heat sources (battery and heating devices).
The surface of the countertop should be protected from liquids, especially solvent coatings (acetone, gasoline, alcohol, etc.). If liquid accidentally gets on the surface of the countertop, it should be immediately removed with a dry cloth.
Water does not harm the surface of the table top, but can adversely affect the material of the base. You must immediately wipe caught on a top water to ensure that moisture from entering in the basis, for example, through the joints.
Countertops kitchen furniture joints in places particularly susceptible to moisture. Therefore, it is strictly forbidden to damage the sealed layer in the joints, if water enters the joint, it should be immediately wiped dry to avoid water penetration into the base of the table top.
