PROPER USAGE AND MAINTENANCE
Proper usage and maintenance is vital for getting the most out of the valuable resources we have. Our designs are made to last for generations, but just like everything else, they need a little care to get there.
SOAP TREATED OAK
Oak with the botanical name Quercus spp. grows in most temperate zones. Skagerak oak comes from European forests.
Oak is a sturdy and hardwearing type of wood. Furthermore, Skagerak oak is FSC 100 % certified or FSC Mix certified. The selection of the wood is extremely careful and all processing is done by hand, so that only the best and most durable pieces of wood are used in production. Oak contains tannins which reduces bacterial growth in the wood.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Your new product comes with a soap treatment. For daily cleaning, use a damp cloth. Spills are to be removed immediately to minimize risk of spots.
We have attached a sanding sponge for easy treatment in case the surface has risen slightly before unpacking or swells after cleaning. Sand the surface in the direction of the grain to achieve the best result. After sanding, clean the surface with a damp cloth and dry it off with a kitchen towel. It may take 1-2 repetitions before all grains are cut down.
Soap-treated products are to be retreated on a regular basis to retain the protective layer of soap and maintain the appearance.
For future treatment, use a suitable soap treatment product and follow the enclosed instructions carefully. Avoid contact of the soap with other materials to avoid spots and marks. If you wish to change the treatment of your table, the previous treatment must be removed completely before applying a new. Always follow the specified safety instructions of the treatment product and use the recommended personal protective equipment.
Lastly, you should remember to retighten the table’s mounting bolts from time to time.
