Maintenance & Care

How do I take care of my Quartz dining table?

Quartz is a durable and low-maintenance material, making it an excellent choice for a dining table. To take care of a quartz dining table, follow these guidelines:

  1. Clean up spills promptly: Wipe up any spills on the quartz surface as soon as possible to prevent stains. Use a soft cloth or sponge and a mild household cleaner or a mixture of water and mild dish soap. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or scouring pads, as they can scratch the surface.

  2. Use coasters and trivets: Place coasters or trivets under glasses, mugs, plates, and hot dishes to protect the quartz surface from heat and potential scratches. Although quartz is heat resistant, prolonged exposure to high heat can cause damage.

  3. Avoid cutting directly on the surface: While quartz is scratch-resistant, it's best to use cutting boards when working with knives to prevent any potential damage to the table's surface.

  4. Avoid abrasive materials: Don't use abrasive materials or harsh chemicals on the quartz table, as they can dull the surface or cause discoloration. Instead, use non-abrasive cleaners and a soft cloth for regular cleaning.

  5. Prevent direct sunlight exposure: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause fading or discoloration of the quartz surface over time. If your dining table is near a window, consider using curtains, blinds, or UV-blocking film to protect it from direct sunlight.

  6. Regularly clean with a non-abrasive cleaner: For routine cleaning, wipe the surface with a soft cloth or sponge and a mild, non-abrasive cleaner. Avoid using acidic or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the surface of the quartz. Rinse the table with water and dry it thoroughly after cleaning.

By following these care instructions, you can keep your quartz dining table looking beautiful and in excellent condition for years to come.


How do I take care of my leather sofa?

Taking care of a cowhide leather sofa requires a combination of regular maintenance and preventive measures to keep it clean and in good condition. Here are some guidelines for caring for a cowhide leather sofa:

  1. Dust and vacuum regularly: Use a soft, dry cloth or a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to remove dust and loose particles from the surface of the sofa. Regular dusting helps prevent dirt buildup and keeps the leather looking clean.

  2. Wipe up spills immediately: If any spills occur, blot them gently with a clean, absorbent cloth or paper towel. Avoid rubbing the spill, as it can spread the liquid and potentially damage the leather. If needed, use a slightly damp cloth with mild soap or a specialized leather cleaner to clean the affected area. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for any cleaning products used.

  3. Avoid direct sunlight and heat: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause fading and drying out of the leather. Position your cowhide leather sofa away from direct sunlight or use curtains, blinds, or UV-blocking film to protect it. Additionally, keep the sofa away from heat sources like radiators or fireplaces, as heat can also dry out and damage the leather.

  4. Condition the leather: Conditioning the leather periodically helps maintain its suppleness and prevents it from drying out. Use a high-quality leather conditioner recommended for cowhide leather. Apply the conditioner according to the manufacturer's instructions, usually by gently rubbing it into the leather with a soft cloth. Conditioning should be done every 6 to 12 months or as needed.

  5. Avoid harsh chemicals and cleaners: Harsh chemicals and cleaners can damage the leather. Avoid using bleach, ammonia, solvents, or abrasive cleaners on your cowhide leather sofa. Stick to mild soap or specialized leather cleaners recommended for cowhide leather.

  6. Test cleaning products: Before using any cleaning product on the entire sofa, it's essential to test it in a small, inconspicuous area first. This helps ensure that the product doesn't cause any discoloration or damage to the leather.

  7. Be gentle with the leather: Avoid using sharp objects or rough materials that can scratch or scrape the leather surface. Take care when moving the sofa to prevent dragging it across the floor, as this can also damage the leather.

By following these care instructions, you can help preserve the beauty and longevity of your cowhide leather sofa.
