Caring for Wood Products

Wood is an active material and is therefore liable to movement due to changes in moisture, temperature and humidity. Maintaining wooden furniture is fairly straightforward, here are some guidelines to assist:

Any piece should be kept in stable conditions that are not too dry or humid as wood will expand or contract according to moisture content. Generally wood will adjust to the same moisture content as its environment over time.

Rapid drying normally caused by air conditioning, heated floors or central heating, can lead to splitting of panels. We advise that you be wary of placing wooden furniture, especially those with wooden top surfaces by a radiator.

If you wish to add an additional finish to your product, we recommend the use of a low sheen (satin) clear water-based lacquer, also known as water-based polyurethane varnish. If the product has an oil/wax finish we recommend applying Osmo oil sparingly.
