Care & Maintenance
The frequency of cleaning your product will vary according to the required appearance and environment. Where salts/ pollutants are more prevalent, such as seaside and industrial areas, a cleaning program should be carried out more frequently. When moving furniture be careful not to drag the item.
Wash regularly with warm soapy water and mild detergent using a soft cloth. Always rinse well with water, to remove remaining detergent. Avoid scratching the surface by dry dusting. Do not allow dirt to accumulate, dry out and harden. Abrasive cleaning agents are not recommended.
