When the Damage is Done

WHEN THE DAMAGE IS DONE

If an accident occurs, there are various ways to repair the damages.

You should always begin by removing any stains with a thoroughly wrung-out cloth with lukewarm water or the mildest cleaning detergent.

Soap treated surfaces: Severe grease/oil stains can be removed with benzine and gentle sanding with fine sandpaper. The same is true for stains of candle waxballpoint penfelt-tip pen can be removed with a soft cloth wetted with methylated spirit. Dark stains from e.g.newspapers or shoe polish can be removed with an eraser or fine sandpaper if necessary. Deep marks or scratches require sanding with sandpaper. Burns must be sanded away. It is important to sand a larger area to avoid a groove in the table top.

Oil treated surfaces: Very severe grease/oil stains can be removed with mineral turpentine and afterwards the oil treatment must be repeated. ballpoint pen or felt-tip pen can be removed with a soft cloth wetted with methylated spirit.

Lacquered surfaces: If lacquered surfaces get stained it is often because the finish is worn and thus porous. This requires a sanding with subsequent refinish. We recommend that a professional perform this. Contact the furniture dealer.

Glazed tile table: Spill of red wine/coffee/tea: If you spill on tiles and joints you should first try to remove the fluid with lukewarm soap flake water - 25 grams to 1 litre of water and a thoroughly wrung-out cloth. If the fluid has been on the table for a while you can try using undiluted household chlorine which should not come into contact with the wooden frame. If the stain can not be removed from the joint new joint filler must be applied. Please contact your dealer who can provide the correct joint filler to repair the table. Cracks in the joint: Wood is a living material that constantly works depending on the humidity. Although the joint is elastic, cracks can occur in the joints between the tiles and the table's frame. To repair any cracks the joint is first wetted with a thoroughly wrung-out sponge and subsequently the joint filler is applied and straighten with the sponge. In case of cracks and the like, please contact your dealer, who can provide the correct joint filler to repair the table. Scratches in the steel: Use 220 grit sandpaper or 320 grit emery cloth and sand i in the same direction as the steel is brushed. The joints should be covered with masking tape to prevent them from turning black.
