Care for “George’s” Furniture

Caring for George’s furniture is simple and easy. No more water marks!! The finish used on all of “George’s” furniture is a durable, high quality finish and the best we have found.  The finish is heat and water-resistant.  You do not need to use coasters for hot and cold drinks.  Warm dishes will not make white rings on the table, but if you take items directly from the oven, stovetop, or microwave, a hot pad is suggested.  A good rule is “If it is not too hot for your fingers, it will not harm the table.”

Weekly Carecare for solid wood furniture

Furniture can be washed with a damp cloth.  Duster spray may be used; however, sprays that contain wax may cause an undesirable build-up to form on the finish over a period of time.

Occasional Special Care

When you would normally polish your furniture, or to remove fingerprints, use a good grade furniture polish.  we use Old English Lemon Oil, Guardsman is also a good choice.

Things to Avoid

The finish will have a chemical reaction if it comes in contact with rubber cement, airplane glue, or similar products.  Permanent magic markers and cigarette burns cause permanent damage to the finish.

Finish scratch, Wood dents

The finish will scratch and the wood will dent.  Be careful not to slide heavy objects across the table or counters on dressers, etc.  A staple or even a hard crumb could cause surface scratch or indentation.  If the damage is a deep scratch or dent and the finish is broken, the damage can be minimized.  First, soak the dent with a water saturated washcloth for several hours.  Then, while protecting it with a damp washcloth, apply a steam iron to the dent, this process will help swell the dent out to the original level.  Please call us for advice on this process.
