Faux Wood Cleaning Guide
Durability, Cleaning and Sanitation:
The Woodgrain finish is durable and will provide years of service in typical hospitality environments. Should it be damaged by contact with hard objects, color touch up is possible with matching color felt Pens available at most office supply stores. Small bottles of a matching “stain “are available for application with a small artist type brush.
As with any frame finish, spills, food or other substances on frame surfaces should be wiped off as soon as possible using a damp cloth with a mild soap solution. This will not harm the Woodgrain finish.
When sanitation is required tests have shown that Woodgrain finishes are not affected by many typical household treatments applied according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
As with any strong antibacterial cleaner, testing first on a section of the frame (under the seat for example) is recommended. Common liquid cleaners such as Formula 409 (Cleaner and Antibacterial), Scrubbing Bubbles (Cleaner and Antibacterial) and even bleach (when diluted properly-1-part bleach and 9-parts water) have been tested and did not soften or discolor Woodgrain finishes.
Once treated it is recommended that the surface once again be wiped with a water damp cloth. Avoid cleaners with grit or abrasive materials as these may scratch the finish surface.
CAUTION: Strong cleaning solutions, including bleach, may discolor or damage upholstery fabrics and should be applied with care when cleaning frame surfaces.
Bleach can be used for disinfecting surfaces of ADRIA Faux Wood Chairs (An approx. mixture of 1-part bleach and 9-parts water) should be applied with a soft cloth. After applying, clean off all the bleach solution with a damp rag and then dry completely. This is crucial for the lifespan and maintenance of your Woodgrain finish frames.
