Care and Maintenance of Your Greenington Fine Bamboo Furniture
All Greenington furniture is made of 100% natural bamboo. It is very hard, dense and extremely durable. Like any natural hardwood furniture, maintaining the humidity in a controlled environment is also very important for bamboo furniture. Keeping the relative humidity in the range of 40 to 55 percent will greatly reduce the potential for any checking or warping, allowing you to better preserve the natural beauty of the pieces. Here are some general tips that'll go a long way towards maintaining and caring for your new furniture pieces.
Use coasters and pads to prevent damage from heat, moisture or heavy objects.
Do not use wax or polish on your bamboo furniture.
To prevent staining or water marks, make sure to clean spills immediately, using a dabbing motion with a soft cloth.
For periodic cleaning use a soft cloth and a gentle cleaner designed for wood furniture.
Avoid cleaners that contain abrasive materials, oil, acidic or caustic ingredients or any other harsh chemicals.
To avoid scratches, take care to lift objects and never drag or slide them across surfaces.
Keep Away from Heat
Avoid placing furniture directly in front of heat vents, wood burning stoves or other heat sources.
Never place bamboo furniture in direct sunlight day after day.
