Thank you for choosing Besp-Oak Furniture. We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and it is now important for you to take some time to maintain the finish. Your furniture has been treated with a spray oil/wax for general protection; so as to ensure your furniture lasts a lifetime we recommend that a clear bees wax is applied every twelve months with a soft, clean cloth in the direction of the grain.
We believe that every piece of Besp-Oak Furniture is unique and as your furniture is made from a naturally occurring material, it is important you are aware that it may feature some variations in the oak color, texture and/or grain and whilst we try to keep these variations to a minimum, if present they serve to add character and charm.
If you spill anything on the surface of your furniture, ensure you clean it up as soon as you can using a 'blotting' action.
Abrasive Cleaning Products & Household Furniture Sprays
Never use abrasive cleaning products or furniture sprays on or near your furniture as they will damage the finish.
Dust your furniture regularly with a clean, dry duster.
Cracks in the Wood
Wood is naturally hydroscopic, meaning that its moisture content varies depending on local humidity levels. Although, Besp-Oak Furniture has been naturally and kiln-dried, humidity changes may result in some cracking or movement. Please do not be alarmed if some cracks or gaps appear, this is a completely normal response to the furniture's environment.
It is not advisable to position your oak furniture near to a direct heat source, such as a radiator. Avoid placing hot objects on your oak furniture and always use a coaster for warm drinks.
Try not to leave your oak furniture in direct sunlight as this may cause the oak to become dehydrated and/or fade.
Placing Objects on Besp-Oak Furniture
To prevent minor marks and scratches, always use place mats and a table cloth where possible.
Our unique hand carved Anteak root furniture is a reclaimed product that will provide many years of use both indoors and out.
Care should be taken if your furniture is exposed to the elements as in time it will fade from its original golden colour to a light silver/grey. Should you wish to maintain the original finish we recommend you treat your furniture with Teak Oil, annually.
If your furniture is left outside all year round please be aware that water may collect in any holes or cracks present. If this is a worry, we suggest that a small pilot hole is drilled to allow drainage.
The best possible way to care for your Anteak Root is to simply use it which will allow the natural oils to rise to the surface giving a beautiful, polished appearance.
