Caring for your furniture
What makes us better?
We want to help you get many years of enjoyment out of your Bear and Oak furniture. Below are our recommedations for caring for your furniture.
Caring for your wood
We seal our wood with 2-3 coats of a blend of natural oils and waxes which gives a highly durable water and stain resistant finish that is child safe, water-repellent and will not peel or flake.
Clean your wood with a damp (NOT wet) cloth using water only (soap will remove the protective coating over time). We also recommend Fiddes Wood Surface Cleaner. For areas subject to high wear or to remove stubborn stains, areas can be treated with Fiddes Floor Wax which when buffed will also give an increased depth of sheen. If the surface requires a renovation coat, contact us and we will send you oil (at your cost). Lightly sand the area with 150 grit sandpaper, and re-apply the oil sparingly following the instrucitons on the tin.
Caring for your steel
Typically our steel is left untreated for that ‘raw’ steel look. Clean your steel with a cloth and warm soapy water. Be sure to dry the steel thoroughly after cleaning to avoid rust.
We hope you enjoy many years of enjoyment from our furniture. Please see our FAQ pages or contact us with any further enquiries about maintaining your Bear and Oak furniture.
