Curing and Durability of Varnish
When you receive your furniture, the finish is 80% cured. This is similar to cement, it is hard, protective, and ready to use right away, however, it takes an additional 3-4 weeks for the final natural hardening of the surface.
Abrasion and Scratching
Catalyzed varnish is tough, but not bulletproof. There will be scratches and dents along the way if you use your furniture, but there are ways to avoid this. Do not slide items across furniture, make sure to lift and move. Sliding dishes or cups that have a rough bottom will scratch the surface. Customer assumes all liability for damage of varnish caused by misuse of furniture.
Spills and Water Rings
Blot up spills immediately. The surface finish provides a tight web of protection that makes most spills that would ruin a normal lacquer finish not a problem. However, moisture for an extended period of time can cause slight discoloration that, with time, will, in most cases disappear. Try to avoid this by blotting up any spills as soon as they happen.
Avoid placing extremely hot items on the surface, especially in the first 3-4 weeks after delivery. You should never take anything directly out of a microwave or oven and put directly on your furniture. The average heat out of a microwave is 211°F. Catalyzed varnish is tested to withstand temperatures up to 140°F.
Darkening of wood will naturally occur over time. Especially with natural or light colors.
Humidity and Temperature
Changes in the relative humidity, especially sudden changes, are the biggest concern for wood furniture. Experts suggest that the ideal range of temperature for wood furniture is 70 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit with humidity levels kept between 40 and 60 percent. If exposed to relative humidity in excess of 70%, wood may swell causing the furniture and finishes to crack. Wood furniture will dry out and crack if the relative humidity remains below 40% for an extended period of time. It may be necessary to add a humidifier in some environments to maintain the beauty of your furniture.
Cleaning or polishing your wood furniture with products that contain additives will damage the varnish and void this warranty. These additives include, but are not limited to: Wax, Silicone, Ammonia, Alkyl, Bleach/Chlorine, and Disinfectants. Bathroom, Stainless Steel, and Other Solid Surface Cleaning Agents may also not be used, and the use of these products will void this warranty. Please contact CIX DIRECT if you have any question regarding which cleaning products to use. CIX DIRECT recommends using Spotless Hospitality® cleaning products and they can be ordered by calling Woodwright® at 1.800.322.8172.
