FAQs

HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY URBAN HARDWOODS FURNITURE?

Caring for your Urban Hardwoods furniture is easy. The finish requires no waxing, polishing, or other regular maintenance. A soft damp cloth is all that’s needed for normal cleaning. Add a little mild soap if necessary, but please do not use aggressive cleaning products, abrasives, or excessive moisture.

The finish we use is very durable and will withstand many years of normal use. We highly recommend that you do not expose your tabletop to high heat or prolonged moisture contact, as these will damage the finish.

Many types of furniture are susceptible to damage if moved by dragging, especially over a thick carpet. Please use two people to safely move large pieces. With kind treatment, your Urban Hardwoods furniture should outlast us all.

Some additional detail:

It is best to dust with a damp rag using long strokes parallel to the grain direction. Add a small amount of mild soap if needed to clean up oily spills.

Avoid aggressive scrubbing. Scrubbing our satin or matte finish with a soft cloth could polish a glossy spot into it, or with an abrasive material a dull spot.

Avoid polishes, oils, and all solvents. These occasionally react with the finish or create a high-gloss surface.

Avoid high heat, especially moist heat. Remember, this applies to boxes straight from the microwave, pizza boxes and other hot carryout containers.
