Care + Maintenance

Wood

For routine cleaning, gently dust the surface with a soft, moist, lint-free cloth, followed by a drying cloth. Since dust can act as a potential abrasive, improper rubbing can result in fine hairline scratches. 

The application of any commonly available furniture polish should be avoided. 

Wood Finish Touch-up and Repair Kits are available for all HBF standard finishes; contact hbfservice@hbf.com or 828.328.2064 to place an order.

 

Upholstery

HBF upholstery fabrics should occasionally be vacuumed to maintain their quality and appearance. 

To clean spots and stains, consult a professional cleaning service.

 

Leather Upholstery

HBF upholstery leather should be dusted along with other furniture; avoid use of oils, waxes, etc. Leathers may occasionally be cleaned with a clean, soft, dampened cloth.

 

Laminate Surfaces 

Laminates have a durable and water resistant surface that, with careful use and regular cleaning, will last for many years. For routine cleaning, wipe down with a cloth using warm soapy water or a mild household detergent.

Excess heat can cause blisters or burns to the surface. Do not use abrasive cleaners on the surface. Warm soapy water is all that is required to keep the surface clean.

Avoid moving abrasive or sharp objects across the surface of the laminate as this can leave marks or dull scratches. 

Stains can be removed with methylated spirits or diluted bleach.

Accumulated dirt or grime may be scrubbed with a fine brush - such as a firm toothbrush. Wipe clean with a cloth using warm soapy water or detergent. 

Light stains may be cleaned with a cloth soaked in acetone or methylated spirits and then wiped dry with a clean cloth. 

Heavy stains can be cleaned with diluted household bleach. Dilute by adding one part of bleach to three parts of water. Leave on surface for 5-10 minutes and then remove the bleach with plenty of cold water and a clean cloth.

 

Quartz Surfaces

Wipe spills with a damp cloth or paper towel as soon as possible.  To clean surfaces, use a non-abrasive cleaning pad with a glass surface cleaner.

For stubborn or set in materials such as paint or gum, use a plastic putty knife to remove such items.  Rinse with water.  Then clean surface using a non-abrasive cleaning pad with a glass surface cleaner.  Do not use sharp or metal objects to scrap surface.

Do not use bleach or any cleaners that contain bleach. 

 

Glass Surfaces

Clear table of all objects.  Mix one part white vinegar and four parts distilled water in spray bottle.  Spray onto a cleaning cloth or microfiber cloth.  Rub the glass surface in a circular motion to remove all the spots.  Next wipe the glass surface with a vertical followed by horizontal swipes to clean glass with a cotton lint free cloth.

 

Solid Surfaces

Clean surfaces with mild soap and water.  Avoid window cleaners and bleach.

To remove small fine scratches pour some mild abrasive liquid cleanser onto a damp cloth or sponge.  Rub over area using small circular motions until the area has been cleaned.  Rinse the top thoroughly with clean water and wipe surface completely dry using a cotton or soft lint free cloth.  Repeat if necessary.
