    Care & Maintenance Standard

    To maintain the finish quality of your C&R product, please follow the cleaning procedures provided
    When using any cleaning agent, we recommend that a small, inconspicuous area be pre-tested
    for colour-fastness before cleaning the stain. We advise you to contact a professional furniture
    cleaning service for cleaning recommendations for large-scale stain.
    The instructions for the care and maintenance of C&R products are provided to you as a service.
    No warranty is implied since results may vary.

    Coated Metal
    • For normal cleaning, wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in mild detergent
    and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry.
    • Remove scuff marks from low-gloss coatings with pre-softened paste wax, following the
    manufacturer’s instructions.
    • Remove scuff marks and scratches from high-gloss coatings using automotive polishing
    compounds, either liquid or paste. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste
    wax to restore original sheen.

    Chromed Metal
    • For normal cleaning, wet cheesecloth or microfibre cloth in a non-abrasive cleaner, like
    liquid dish soap, and rub the chrome component lightly until the original luster reappears.
    Dry the component with a sift cloth to remove any soap residue.

    • Use a mild solution of ammonia, water and a few drops of mild liquid soap or products
    specifically designed for glass. Apply with a soft cloth, and remove excess with a squeegee
    or wipe dry with a clean, lint free cloth.

    • For normal cleaning, wash plastic surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in mild detergent and
    warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth.
    • Do not use solvents or abrasive kitchen cleaners.
    • Harsh scrubbing with brushed may damage the surface.

    • Products using laminate may include tabletops, work surfaces, open shelves, pedestals,
    cabinets and panel tiles.
    • For general cleaning, wash the laminate with a soft cloth and a solution of mild detergent
    and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth.
    • Do not use powdered abrasives or other harsh cleansers like hypochloride bleach,
    hydrogen peroxide, nitric or hydrochloride acids; they may defect the surface and change
    the finish colour.

    Wood & Veneer
    • To protect the wood surface, protective desk pads must be placed under all writing areas
    and business machines.
    • Extreme heat and humidity can be harmful to wood furniture. Do not place products in
    direct sunlight, near radiators or air conditioning vents, humidifiers, fireplaces, etc. Always
    use coasters under hot objects, such as coffee pots and cups.
    • For normal cleaning, dust furniture daily with a slightly damp, soft, lint-free cloth. Wipe dry
    with a dry, soft cloth in the direction of the wood grain.
    • Once a month, clean the surface with a soft cloth dampened with a quality cleaner
    formulated for wood furniture.
    • Wipe the surface in the direction of the wood grain to remove dirt and fingerprints. Wipe dry
    with a clean, dry cloth.
    • Twice a year, apply a good quality emulsion wax with a soft cloth. Emulsion wax is clear
    and prevents fingerprints.
    • Do not use aerosol-powered cleaners, polished, waxes, abrasive cleaners or oily polishes.

    • We recommend to use nail polish remover or hand sanitizer on paper towel to clean the
    ghosting problems after erasing. The surface should then be wiped with soap and water
    and a clean cloth.
