Caring for stone and marble furniture

General Maintenance Instructions

To help prolong the life of your stone and marble furniture, we advise the following:

Cleaning

  • Dust regularly with a soft cloth. Occasionally wipe with a soft cloth that has been very lightly moistened with a mild, bleach-free detergent solution, then dry with a lint-free cloth.

  • Spills should be removed immediately by blotting with a dry white cloth. Colored cloths may cause staining. If the spill causes staining or the piece requires routine cleaning, we recommend a specialist cleaner.

Care

Please note, these natural materials can be very porous and therefore extra care should be taken to avoid spills.

  • Do not drop furniture onto corners or feet, as this will weaken and damage frames, feet or legs.

  • Prevent sharp objects such as toys, buckles and heels from coming into contact with your furniture.

  • Avoid contact with any chemicals, such as hair and skin preparations, fake tans, insect repellents and other cosmetics or household cleaning materials, other than those recommended, as these may affect the finish.

  • Avoid exposing your furniture to excessive heat. This can cause cracking. A minimum 1ft clearance from heat sources such as radiators is advised.

  • Direct sunlight will cause the color of the item to change, even if painted or lacquered, especially if the furniture is placed near a window. Use in hot and sunny areas is not recommended.

  • Never place hot dishes or mugs directly on to surfaces. Instead, use placemats or coasters. Prolonged use of hot equipment e.g. laptops, may cause scorching.

  • If your furniture becomes stained, scratched, chipped or suffers other damage we recommend professional help is sought to restore it.
