Taking Care of Your New Woodtech Furniture

In most cases, the surface of your new furniture is architectural grade veneer with an edge band of solid hardwood that is stained and finished with multiple coats of catalyzed lacquer. The finish is very durable and will look great for many years with a minimum of attention.

  • In most instances, the only cleaning that is necessary is wiping with a clean, soft cloth dampened with plain water.
  • Occasionally, a mild soap such as Murphy’s Oil Soap may be needed to clean pizza sauce or other greasy deposits that do not fully respond to water.
  • Do not use window cleaner or kitchen spray cleaners such as Fantastic or 409.
  • Do not use paper towels or other materials that may scratch the surface.
  • Do not use Pledge or other similar products; they leave an oily residue.
  • Soda cans or cups may be placed directly on the surface. Condensed moisture (the sweat from these items) needs to be cleaned dry within minutes to avoid white rings on the surface.
  • The use of coasters or napkins is recommended. Although the moisture from cans and cups will not damage the surface if it is cleaned dry within minutes, sliding soda cans and cups may leave minor scratches.
  • Spills of water, soda, beer or alcohol will not damage the surface, but needs to be cleaned dry within minutes to avoid water marks on the surface.
