Care and Maintenance
Certain precautions will preserve the beauty of your new wood furniture. High or low humidity extremes can cause warping , cupping, veneer checking, and joint separation. CCN is not responsible for the humidity controlled care of the item once it leave the factory.Wet objects should be placed on coasters and writing should be done on a desk pad. Sharp metal objects such as keys, spring binders and briefcases with hinges should be kept from direct contact with the furniture. Bottoms of decorative items, such as flower vases and desk accessories should also be protected. Contact between certain plastic compounds may result in discoloration and finish damage. CCN recommends the use of felt pads under plastic telephones, typewriters or anything other plastic work tools that would be set on furniture pieces to protect the finish. Dust build-up may scratch or dull the surface if it is not removed correctly. Simply wipe the surface with a cloth dampened with a mild detergent and dry on a soft towel. Avoid the use of ammonia based products, polish containing wax or silicone oils as they may cause damage over a long period of time. The finish is durable and resistant to most ordinary spills. However, spills should be wiped up promptly to avoid potential problems. Fingerprints, smoking residue, etc., accumulates on any finished surface. None of these contaminates will harm our finish, but they should be periodically removed to restore finish to it’s original luster. Just wipe the surface with a soft cloth dampened with a mild detergent solution. All wood is photosensitive and changes the color over time. This natural change occurs depending on the initial color of the wood and is especially apparent with lighter finishes. Some woods may change dramatically with exposure to direct sunlight. When ordering additional pieces for an existing installation, it is advisable to submit a finish sample of your order.
