Care & Maintenance of Furniture
Foremost Furniture Ltd

Cleaning Polished Furniture (specifically table tops) and Faux Leathers

  • Do not use industrial cleaners and detergents such as D10 Sanitisers, this will affect the finish overtime and the surface will become sticky/tacky
  • Do not use wax containing products, these will create a build up of residues on the polished surfaces, which attract dust and dirt
  • Simply wipe the surfaces with a soft cloth moistened with tepid water. If the surface becomes very dirty, you can add a small amount of a mild detergent to the water

Chairs & Tables

  • All furniture should be checked regularly to ensure the joints, fixings and bolts have not worked loose.
  • All fixings should be periodically tightened to ensure the longevity of your furniture.
  • Do not drag furniture as this will damage the joints and loosen the fixings.

Table Tops
In addition to the cleaning as detailed above:

  • To avoid damage use good quality non abrasive heat protection mats for hot items
  • Items with sharp edges and objects with rough or uneven bases can cause scratches i.e. condiment sets, if allowed to slide across the surface
  • Avoid stacking furniture upon tops to prevent scratches and dints

Fabric
All of the fabrics and fillings used to produce our furniture are fire retardant and meet the standards of the Furniture and Furnishing (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988.No fabric is stain resistant unless specified

  • Spills can be removed with a dry cloth if done immediately
  • Care & maintenance sheets can be provided for each fabric if required
  • Bad stains may require dry cleaning, do not clean with detergent and water as this will affect the fire-retardant properties

Leather

  • No leather is stain resistant unless specified
  • Spills can be removed with a dry cloth if done immediately
  • Can be cleaned with tepid water and a mild detergent
  • Care & maintenance sheets can be provided for each leather if required
  • A leather cleaning kit can be purchased

External Furniture

  • Timber furniture should be re-treated at regular intervals with wood oil in order to maintain the appearance of the furniture
  • Coastal sites exposed to salt water and air will age prematurely and will require more maintenance
  • Avoid leaving pooled water on flat surfaces
