MAINTENANCE OF WOOD PARTS

For ordinary maintenance purposes, use a soft and dry cloth to remove dust. For greasy-oily dirt (fingerprints), we suggest treating surfaces with alcohol diluted in water, and immediately drying them with a soft cloth. It is best to avoid products containing acetone, chlorine and solvents, abrasive products, furniture wax and cloths with rigid fibres (linen and synthetic fabrics), which could ruin and/or scratch the surfaces. All these operations must be carried out with the utmost attention and without applying excessive pressure. Exposure to direct sunlight may damage the colour of the wood.

COVER MAINTENANCE - BONDED HIDE LEATHER VERSIONS

With hide leather parts, it is necessary to pay the utmost attention, since it is hard to clean stains out of them.Stains caused by liquids or other substances must be removed quickly, using an absorbent cloth. For a correcthandling of the product, we recommend to dust and periodically clean the surfaces with a soft wool cloth, to revive the hide leather. Twice or three times a year, apply - also with a soft cloth - colourless wax for vegetable-tanned leathers. Over time, the covers change due to the wear and tear of everyday use and to light exposure.

MAINTENANCE OF METAL PARTS (STOOL FOOTREST)

In order to maintain, over time, the aesthetic characteristics of these finishes, and to prevent oxidation processes, it is necessary to carry out maintenance operations punctually, methodically, and meticulously. For ordinary maintenance purposes, use a soft and dry cloth to remove dust. For greasy-oily dirt (fingerprints), we suggest treating the surfaces with normal liquid detergents for cleaning glass. It is best to avoid products containing solvents and/or alcohol, or cloths with rigid fibres (linen and synthetic fabrics), which could ruin and/or scratch the surfaces.
