Aftercare of Your Pine Furniture

Thank you for choosing a piece of Scartop pine furniture.

Care of your furniture

Now you have invested in your new furniture range it is important to give it a little tender loving care by following the list of care instructions below:

  • Clean with a reliable non-silicone furniture polish - except on our waxed pine furniture - see bleow.
  • Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.
  • Avoid placing your furniture near a heat source or air conditioning vent.
  • Do not leave rubber or plastic materials on wood surfaces.
  • Wipe up spills immediately.
  • Avoid hot dishes (use a protective mat), harsh solvents (nail polish remover, alcohol) and abrasives.

Care of Your Waxed Furniture

To ensure your beautiful furniture is looking it’s best at all times a quick fresh coating of wax, ideally every 6 to 8 weeks, is all that is required.

This may sound daunting but just follow these simple step by step guidelines using the correct proprietary products. You will realise how easy it really is.

Removing everyday dirt

Using very fine wire wool, lightly rub the furniture in the direction of the grain of the timber, more attention may be required on flat areas that get more use.

This will remove any everyday grime and debris that builds up on the surface of your furniture even in the tidiest of homes.

DO NOT use polish and a cloth to remove dust and grime.

Applying the wax

Again using the wool, load the wire wool with plenty of wax and wipe on in the direction of the wood grain.

Wipe any excess with dry lint free cloth or brush. Allow to dry for 10 to 15 minutes then buff up with a fresh piece of very fine wire wool and then finish with a piece of soft cloth.

Treating accidental stains

If you spill on the furniture wipe off immediately and treat the surface right away. To help reduce the appearance of the stain, apply fresh coat of wax as previously directed.

DO NOT apply additional pressure on the stained area as this will NOT remove the stain but rub off the wood stain below.

Aftercare of your Lacquered furniture

Lacquer creates a barrier over the wood so refreshing the finish is not required.

Simply dust as normal using the correct proprietary cleaner ( Please read the manufacturers instructions ). Clear wax can be used to give your furniture that special treatment.
