How to care for concrete furniture

Care for Your Concrete Furnishings 

The concrete structure that is the focal point of this piece may have unique natural characteristics such as small open pores and slight cosmetic splits to the surface. To maintain the industrial appeal of this piece follow these instructions:

  • Regularly dust with a dry, soft cloth. Do not use furniture polish or ammonia-based cleaning products.
  • Keep out of direct sunlight and away from heat.
  • If concrete piece is suited for outdoors, cover or store indoors during inclement weather.
  • Avoid direct contact between sharp objects and the surface.
  • Use coasters and trivets to protect the surface from wet or hot cups or dishes.
  • Address spills immediately by wiping with a dry, soft cloth.
  • Always lift and carry, not drag, when moving furniture.
