Wood is a natural product that continually absorbs and releases moisture – the furniture should therefore not be subject to fluctuations. We recommend average values of 45-55% humidity and a room temperature of between 20 and 23 °C. Dry air can also cause damage so the furniture should never be fitted directly beside heat sources. The wood surface may also change if subject to direct sunlight or strong artificial light. We therefore recommend that you do not place any heavy, sharp-edged, hot or damp objects on the high-quality surfaces. PVC rubber pieces should also not be placed directly on surfaces to prevent discolouration.
A soft cloth, lukewarm water and a little mild washing-up liquid: Nothing more, nothing less. Occasionally wipe the surfaces in the direction of the grain without applying any pressure, and then dry with a soft cloth. And that's it. When using furniture care products, less is definitely more. Furthermore, you should ensure that cleaning products are free of wax and silicone, that they do not add or remove any products (e.g. wax) and that they do not contain any substances that may be harmful to health.
Only dust oiled surfaces with a lint-free cloth to prevent tiny pieces of lint becoming caught on the rough surfaces. After a few years, we recommend treating the rough-sawn surfaces with an odour-free oil to ensure they remain in perfect condition.
Handles and metals do not need to be cleaned in any particular way.
Hinges and draw hinges are permanently lubricated – should there be any friction, simply clean them with a cloth.
Should, contrary to our expectations, there be any squeaking sounds, this can be rectified using a simple sewing machine oil that can be applied using a brush.
When cleaning glass and mirrors, you only need a chamois leather, clean water and a soft dry cloth for afterwards.
Never use an abrasive cloth otherwise the surfaces will be quickly damaged by scratches and the surface will lose its special appeal.
An exclusive leather surface adds timeless elegance to any room. To keep your leather looking beautiful for a long time, proper care is crucial. Here are some important tips on how to clean and maintain your leather optimally:
- Regularly dust the leather with a soft cloth. Avoid strong rubbing in general.
- Clean and care for the leather generously from seam to seam, never focusing on specific spots.
- Never apply cleaning and care products directly to the leather; instead, apply them gently with a sponge or cloth.
- Clean first, then care: For your leather to remain beautiful for an extended period, it needs essential care and moisture. However, it can only absorb these substances after the surface has been freed from dirt particles.
- Clean and care for leather furniture once or twice a year, depending on usage, preferably before and after the heating season.
- Never clean leather with a microfiber cloth, as this can damage the surface. Use soft, lint-free natural fiber cloths.
- When cleaning, it is advisable to use distilled water to avoid lime residues.
- React promptly to stains and gently blot them.
- Always remove stains from the outside in. Allow the cover to dry thoroughly after cleaning before applying care products.
- Color-intensive clothing items like blue jeans can stain leather. Protect light leather by treating it with Ker Ralux Intensive Protection. For cleaning and care, we recommend products from LCK.
Here are some important tips on how to optimally clean and care for your fabric:
- Always use a clean cloth and clean the fabric in a circular motion; do not let the fabric become too wet.
- Avoid exposure to direct sunlight as the fabrics may fade.
- Do not use any impregnating agents, bleaching agents or similar chemical substances.
- Our fabrics are almost pilling-free. However, if pills should form after extended use, they can be removed using a commercially available lint shaver.
