STAINLESS STEEL

Stainless Steel is not a single alloy, but a group of iron-based alloys, that contents at least 10.5% Chromium which makes it highly resistant to corrosion, forming a self-protective clear oxide film on its surface. Its mechanical properties: strength, high-temperature strength, ductility and toughness.


Cleaning - Inadequate cleaning of the surface may result to corrosion problems; therefore, stainless steel should be subject of a cleaning procedure routinely with appropriate non-abrasive detergent. Avoid using scouring cream or scouring pads, as they may scratch the surface.

Stainless Steel cleaners can be used to restore the original splendour of the steel, remove scaling, stubborn dirt and rust marks caused by contact with ferrous materials.

LEATHER

Leather is a natural, individual product. Always protect leather from direct sunlight and strong heat sources. Although all our leather is high-quality, it will fade over time if exposed to direct sunlight. If necessary, you can vacuum the leather using upholstery nozzle. Take care not to scratch the leather. Stains should be removed quickly to avoid permanent damage.


Cleaning - Regular cleaning is requested to maintain the features of leather upholstery, using water and a neutral soap. Use a clean, undyed, lint-free cloth to apply the lather from a solution of water and a mild detergent or a special leather care maintenance product. Wipe the leather down when it is dry, and polish gently, using a soft cotton cloth. Avoid pressing liquid into the pores of the leather. For furniture that sees daily use, Nourishing creams are recommended twice a year to enhance it. Do not use sharp objects, soap, dishwashing liquid or solvents on the leather.

Only attempt to remove stains when strictly necessary, as regular use will give the leather patina.

WOOD

Avoid placing wooden furniture in direct sunlight or close to strong heat sources. Also avoid placing hot or wet items directly on the wood. Any stains should be removed quickly before they cause permanent damage to the surface of the wood. We recommend that you avoid partially covering the furniture with blankets or skins.


Cleaning - Painted and stained wood - wipe the wood with a clean, dry cloth. For cleaning, use a clean cloth wrung in water, a solution of water and a universal detergent e.g. soap flakes, or a special product for painted or stained wood. Remove soap residue immediately, using a clean, dry cloth. Stains should be removed with a damp, clean cloth wrung in warm water mixed with 1 part vinegar to 10 parts water. Afterwards, wipe down the surface immediately, using a clean, dry cloth. If the surface is dull or has scratches, you may use furniture polish. We recommend that you avoid using products containing silicone because it seals the surface with a membrane, which will make any later repairs or re-finishing more difficult.


Cleaning - Soap-treated wood - wipe the tab with a dry, clean cloth. For cleaning, use a clean cloth wrung in clean water, a solution of water and a universal detergent fx. White pigmented lye or a special product for soap-finished wood. Any soap residue should be removed immediately with a clean, dry cloth. Remove any stains by cleaning and scrubbing with a thick solution of soap flakes allowed to stay on the wood for no more than two minutes.

After this treatment, remove excess soap with a damp cloth. If the grain of the wood has risen after cleaning, sand the surface gently using fine-grit sandpaper (grit 220), always sanding with the grain.


Cleaning - Oil-treated wood - wipe the table with a dry, clean cloth. For cleaning, use a clean cloth wrung in water, a solution of water and a universal detergent e.g. soap flakes or a special product for oil-treated wood. Remove any soap residue immediately, using a clean, dry cloth. For more thorough cleaning, you may use white spirit (mineral turpentine) to remove some of the oil membrane. Do not apply a new coat of oil until the wood is completely dry.

GLASS

General information Glass is an industrial product made of natural materials. For technical reasons, it is impossible to manufacture completely clear glass without bubbles or inclusions. The colour of glass can vary from batch to batch. Glass appears in different shades of green depending on how thick it is.


Cleaning - Do not use scouring agents, steel wool, pot cleaners or similar. Pointed or sharp objects, such as blades or knives, can damage (scratch) the surface. Anything hot can also be detrimental to the surface. Damage to the surface can result in the glass pane breaking later on. Clean glass with a clean, soft, damp cloth, sponge or leather to avoid abrasion with dirt particles. If heavily soiled, glass can be cleaned more effectively if a neutral cleaning agent or a normal household glass cleaner is used. Do not use a solvent to clean painted undersides of glass as this could destroy the layer of paint.



MARBLE

This premium natural stone as been used since ancient times in sculpture and as a decorative material. It is an extremely hard and durable rock with a firm crystalline structure and a slight porosity.


Cleaning - Due to its structure, it requires adequate maintenance to protect the unique features of every marble item. Contrary to most people believe, this beautiful natural material is not impenetrable, its porous feature makes it liable to staining in contact with liquids, foods and some cleaning detergents. The Marble Institute of America, advises against using vinegar, lemon juice or other cleaners containing acid on marble, including bleach. Experts instead recommend only mild soap and water.



CORK

Cork is the bark of the Cork Oak tree. This tree art is very present in our national territory. It is an ecological super-material with unique properties: Lightness, flexibility, compressibility, impermeability.


Cleaning - A simple damp wipe down should suffice on most occasions.
