    Speke Klein's furniture needs no regular maintenance except to be dusted with a soft, dry cloth as required. The wood surfaces can be polished with a light coat of high-quality, non-abrasive furniture wax twice a year in order to help reduce everyday wear. Furniture polishes are not recommended. Any liquid spills should be wiped and dried as soon as possible. Moisture left on the wood surfaces for prolonged periods could damage the finish.  
       
     
  Wood  
 

Please be aware that wood is a natural material. As such, colour and grain will vary from piece to piece. All woods will darken naturally and gradually over time and the degree to which this happens is largely dependent on exposure to direct sunlight. Caution should be used when leaving objects on wood surfaces for an extended period of time when they are first received. Exposure to sunlight may leave a temporary shadow as the furniture ages.

Wood is also very susceptible to changes in the humidity of its environment, which causes it to expand and shrink. Although Speke Klein takes the utmost care in constructing your furniture to accommodate this natural movement, please note that the optimum relative humidity level for its environment is 50-55%. Maintaining an even humidity level throughout the year will help to extend the life of your wood furniture.

 
       
     
  Fabric Upholstery  
 

We often recommend upholstery fabrics that are graded for use in commercial environments making them very durable to withstand normal household wear and tear. A weekly light vacuuming will help extend the life of the upholstery and keep it looking its best.

If something spills on the fabric it is important to act fast to try to remove the stain. First, mop up any liquid with a clean, white cloth and scoop up any dry solids with the dull edge of a spoon, working inwards from the edge of the stain to prevent spreading. Next, use mild upholstery cleaner and blot the stain with a clean cloth. Avoid pressing liquid through the fabric as this will make the stain more difficult to remove. For very stubborn stains it is recommended that you call in a professional upholstery cleaner.

 
       
     
  Leather  
 

Leather is a durable and resilient material. Leather's colour will change and mellow with age as the surface develops a patina from exposure to the environment and even the oils from your skin. This natural change is a characteristic that makes fine leather a desirable and timeless upholstery material.

Leather surfaces should be wiped with a cool, damp cloth, as required. Harsh cleaners and leather polishes such as mink oil or saddle soap are not recommended. These substances seal the leather's surface preventing it from breathing, causing it to dry out and crack. For tougher soiling, apply a pH-balanced soap with a soft cloth and rinse with cool water. Allow the surface to dry naturally. For severe stains it is recommended that you seek the advice of a leather-cleaning specialist.
