Furniture Care Guidelines
Our beautiful crafted children’s furniture is the result of four generations of craftsmanship and tradition. Each piece is created with as much attention and devotion as it was in our first workshop at our family home in 1919.
The following care and maintenance recommendations will help to protect your Pali furniture
- To maintain the beauty of your furniture, dust regularly with a soft cloth. Occasionally, wipe with a soft cloth moistened in lukewarm water then wipe dry with a dry clean cloth. Do not allow moisture to remain on the surface.
- To prevent discoloration, avoid placing furniture directly under windows, in direct sunlight or in a damp area.
- Position your furniture away from heating or air conditioning vents.
- Use either a humidifier or de-humidifier as needed to keep the air in the room from becoming too dry or too damp.
- Dust your furniture frequently using a soft cloth to keep the build up of dirt to a minimum and help prevent scratches and ground-in grime.
- Only polish your furniture every 4-6 months and be sure to use a polish that does not include silicone or wax which can damage the furniture finish.
- To prevent yellowing, do not use commercial furniture polishes, pastes or waxes.
- Wipe up spills immediately with a cloth as left over a prolonged period of time will cause white spots in the finish and some liquids can cause severe damage to the finish.
- Do not place hot or extremely cold items directly onto the furniture surface as this can discolor the finish.
- Occasionally rotate accessories so they do not remain in the same spot for extended periods.
- Avoid creating marks on your furniture by placing a piece of felt or cloth under accessories.
- Be careful not to place plastic materials (lamp bases, place mats, etc.) on your furniture as certain plastics have ingredients that may react with and damage the finish.
- To avoid marks, never write directly on the top of furniture surfaces.
- Lift objects from the top surface rather than dragging them across the finish.
- Take care to lift your furniture when moving in order to prevent damage to the legs caused by pushing or dragging.
- Do not overstuff furniture drawers.
