The pieces of wood dry off for a long time. It is a natural process of an organic matter. It effects in checks and cracks which are elements of the design of each piece. The ongoing process of drying off may increase existing cracks on the sides or ends of pieces or generate new ones. These variations are part of the beauty of the wood and have been planned in the design of each piece. The wood can slightly change its color over time, the intensity of this change depends on exposure to sunlight and heat. The warranty does not cover these changes. To learn more about drying off and color change of solid wood go to additional information and FAQs section: https://www.etsy.com/shop/FreeTreeStudio/policy?ref=shopinfo_policies_leftnav
WOOD CRACKING AND COLOR CHANGE
Wood is a hygroscopic matter which means it tends to maintain the same amount of moisture as the surrounding air. Each tree accumulates a large amount of juices, whose main ingredient is water. The pieces of wood we use are dried before built to furniture. During the air and kiln drying most of the wood vapour. The tempo of drying depend on the mass of the piece, in general a more massive piece needs more time to vapour the moisture. At this time the log or other piece of wood shrinks which almost always results in cracking on the sides or ends of a pieces. The pieces of wood may still crack even when assembled into frame. Each piece will continue to loose moisture when it arrives to its final destination as it needs to acclimatize itself to the lower humidity of its new environment. The existing cracks can deepen and new ones may appear. This is a natural result of a further shrinking. Such is the beauty of the natural wood , which works all the time astonishing us with new cracks that spontaneously arise in the block. They highlight the natural character of the wood and can’t be deemed as ‘’defects” of the furniture. Cracking doesn’t affect the piece's functionality or structural strength and will not result in a refund or compensation.
CARE OF YOUR PIECE
To keep your organic, solid wood furniture in an excellent condition you need to remember of proper cleaning and care. The key rules are:
• avoid placing hot cups or vessels directly neither or on the wooden elements nor tampered glass table tops.
• keep your furniture away from the radiator
• to remove the dust use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment
• wipe away surface marks using a clean, damp cloth.
• avoid strong, aggressive – acid containing commercial cleaners and polishes. We can supply you we proper detergents at your purchase.
• make sure a proper air circulation between the wood and the floor is always maintained. Don’t remove leg levellers / casters attached to a piece as the piece may releases humidity which can stain the carpets if it’s placed on directly .
